My Mail has worked since the beginning, but yesterday it stopped fetching incoming mails. I can send mails, but not receive! The clock keeps on spinning and says "fetching new mail" My server ports is set to 25 and 110 as default. When I try to quit Mail, it dosen't. I have to force-quit Mail to close it.
I just set up my new iMac, migrated everything from my MacBook Pro, and everything works EXCEPT Mail. I have configured my MobileMe settings to synch everything, and online, everything is there: contacts, all old email, etc... but Mail doesn't show any of this stuff, nor will it retrieve or synch any of my email accounts. Also, I have to Force Quit it everytime to exit the program.
Could this be something with the Preferences file, or .plist file?
I have the latest update for Safari on my MacBook Pro 17" (running the latest Lion update). Lately, the command-Q (quit) option under the File menu is greyed out/not available. I tried using the Quit function from the dock icon for Safari--no good, either. I have to Force Quit in order to close Safari.
Every time I want to shut down my late 2011 MacBook Pro, Mac Mail cancels the shut down & I have to force quit mail. I was having this problem on my old 2008 MacBook before I upgraded to the Pro (but it only started after I upgraded to Lion OSX). So what's wrong w/ Mac Mail? And is there some setting I can change? This is an annoying time suck.
I am running Mac OSX 10.7.3 and I recently been having issues shutting down my computer with mail running. Sometimes it takes 2-3 mins for it to shut mail down and other times it says it couldn't shut down because of the mail app. Is there anything I can do short of reinstalling Lion?

At first I thought it was a Quark problem. When doing a mundane action such as changing a word to Italic, Quark 7.5 stalls (pretty color spinning wheel comes up and won't go away) it has to be forced to quit. Now, the same thing happened in Acrobat 7, when I was just moving across the top menu bar to drop down the tools menu. I am running MAC 0S X 10.5 on a MAC Book Pro3 - 2.4 ghz. I've run maintenance and everything looks fine.
I have a subscription to MLBTV. To watch games in HD/higher quality, they have this plug in called NexDef. This plug in is always running. I can do a force quit, but it comes back two seconds later. Killing it also doesn't seem to work.
Not in my startup processes either, but once I do a restart, it on cue starts running again. I have done some searching, but nothing has worked. Would anyone know how to kill this?
How do I close an application that won't quit and doesn't show up in the force quit dialogue box? I was trying to open Printer Pro but it doesn't show up in the finder and when I tried to put it in the trash it says it can't throw it away because it's open. The forced quit dialogue box does not list it as open. What do I do?
That was supposed to be APPLICATION

I downloaded Madagascar 2, and it billed me for it. But the download never finished, it frozed, and I force quit itunes and when I restarted the application, nothing was there. Does anyone know how I can redownload it?
A few times a day my mac will freeze. Usually I get the spinning beachball and will become unable to click anything, then move the mouse at all. Generally I'm not able to force close anything. It can usually be unfrozen by restarting, or if I go away for 10 minutes it will sometimes have sorted itself out. It appears that this can happen whilst using a variety of different programs, I haven't been able to spot any patterns as such.
So far I have been in contact with Apple support and have done everything they suggested, right up until re-installing Mavericks. I then took the laptop in to a repair shop, I the first time they replaced the logic board. Neither of these things solved the problem, if anything the crashing seems to happen more often now then it ever did.
I took it in to the repair shop for a second time, and they said that something had corrupted the system files, and that I should completely wipe the laptop, only restore my user date from time-machine, then install all the apps again one by one to try and work out which one had corrupted everything.

After updating to Yosemite 10.10.1, occasionally my Finder will freeze. I can continue to work in whatever program I am in, but I can't go anywhere else. When I force quit to try to relaunch the Finder, it doesn't respond. The only way to get it to work again is to shut off the computer using the on/off button. I have already tried deleting my Finder preferences.

I purchased a new IMac Intel version and I am having a problem with AOL. I have always had a problem with AOL and my Macs (now on number 3). In the past, if I left AOL running it would not allow the Macs to close down without Force Quitting from AOL and AOL would not quit normally. With the new Mac, if I use AOL it won't quit and when I Force Quit it disconnects the Mac from the internet and I have to restart. As I live in Antigua both Apple and AOL have been useless at trying to solve the problem.
My dumb mac is always freezing up and the round rainbow thing will be spinning and I cant do anything but restart. How do I force quit? I know it says it on the mac but I don't get what the symbols are.
I wanted to force quit an application on my first gen MacBook running Mac OS X 10.6.3, so I looked up the short cut key command from the Apple menu. I saw that it was option-command-power-button. I pressed these keys, and my Mac instantly displayed a black screen. After about five seconds, my Mac made the usual sounds of starting up. I booted up, and nothing seemed to have been affected, so I double checked Console, which didn't help much. I looked up the short cut key command for force quit online. The Internet says its option-command-esc. I tried the command, and up popped the force quit prompt. So why is the short cut key command WRONG on my Apple menu?
I'd like to force quit just like in Windows when I press the Red Button. It's stupid that OS X minimizes it. ( programs consume alot of CPU power if you do this, I watched activity monitor and some programs use 10-20% in this state )
How do I setup OS X to force quit an application when I press the Red Button?
I have a Mac Pro with 10.5.4 (Intel 2.66 Dual-Core -- 5GB ram) installed. Things have been running smoothly for a long time, but recently I've had a few kernel panics, which seem to have gone away, but now it's very common for applications to freeze, and I can't unfreeze them by force-quitting--I have to power the G5 down by holding the power button.
Sometime when some application hangs I try to force quit it and the process completely disappears from the Activity Monitor, but the little white marker under the icon on the dock remains and there is no way to restart the application. Does any one know of an easy way out without having the restart the machine? I have a 2008 MBP with Leopard 100% up-to-date on the machine. I tried restarting the application directly from the Application folder instead of double clicking on the dock, and I got "An unexpected error occurred (error code -600)" -- according to Apple, error code -600 means: procNotFound - No eligible process with specified process serial number.
My MacBook Pro, now 3 1/2 yrs. old, crashed. I was able to get it up and running but it no longer responds at all when I try to force quit (Safari often "spins out"/beachballs and I have to power off and restart.
I was just wondering whether or not if there's a way to change the escape button in an open window (red one) to force quit? I'm not really a fan of the whole escape button not entirely quitting your apps, it's still running (if that makes sense).
For some reason, my uTorrent will not close after I decide to quit it. Therefore, I have to got to Force Quit to close it which it does. However, when I turn on uTorrent again, the files I was downloading before will start over like they did not download at all. So far I tried to update my uTorrent but it is up to date. Now I could turn it off by pressing the power button but I do not want to do that to ruin my Mac Mini.
Since the last update my Safari 4.0.3 crashes a lot. Like 3 or 4 times a day. Either that or it shows the spinning beach ball, meaning Safari is not responding and needs to be force quit. It looks like it's happening when a page is (re)loading. This looks a lot like the continuous crashing that happened to Safari 4 when it was just launched (was that in April, or May?). That was then reason for me to switch to Firefox. If this keeps up I might do that again. Or maybe to Chrome.
