When I'm in Accounts and I select the dropdown of SMTP servers I get a long list of servers (as I manage a lot of accounts). But when I go to edit the SMTP server list, not all of the accounts in the dropdown are listed. Any ideas what's happening?

Finally found out what the issue is. Half the accounts on the Account dropdown under SMTP are from the Internet Accounts under System Settings > Accounts, not just your SMTP server settings list. Its really confusing.

  • Good find. Are the ones not entered in mail.app shown grayed out, or just it took some digging to understand what’s happening in mail.app?
