Hi there, Kosmic1.
Let's perform extra steps so you can send email using QuickBooks Desktop for Mac.
To start, let's check the system requirements to make sure your email account is compatible with your QuickBooks version. For more information, you can visit this article: System Requirements.
Then, let's make sure that your Gmail account is used as the default email from the Apple Mail menu. This ensures the program sends your sales forms through the default email. I'll show you how.
1. Click the Apple Mail.
2. Select Preferences.
3. On the Preferences pane, choose General.
4. Confirm Gmail is your default email account. If not, set your default email to Gmail.
Once done, send an email again. If the issue persists, I'll suggest contacting our phone support. They have the tools to check your account in a secure session.
I'll include this article QuickBooks for Mac see page 228. This contains detailed steps to help you manage your account.
I'm just a post away if you have any other questions about sending emails. Wishing you and your business success.
