Applications :: Mail Connection Errors (port 993 Timed Out)

Mar 27, 2010

I have two gmail accounts set up with Mail, but as of yesterday, neither will work. I get a connection failed error (port 993 timed out). I've triple checked all my settings and everything is fine. nothing changed, so i don't understand why it won't work. also, mail has been acting strange overall. if i want to quit it, i have had to force quit it with finder because it won't close on its on.


OS X :: Mail Just Stopped Working - Connection To The Server On Port 143 Timed Out?

Jan 29, 2008

today i found that Mail has stopped working for no obvious reason.It wont send or receive emails, but when i check by signing into .mac itself, the messages have arrived and everything appears normal.Mail won't quit either... then every so often a box with the following text appears:'Some actions taken while the account 'enter.mac address here' was offline could not be completed online.Mail has undone actions on some messages so that you can redo the actions while online. Mail has saved other messages in mailbox "on my mac" in "on my mac" so that you can complete the actions while online.Additional information: The connection to the server "" on port 143 timed out.

Software :: Mail Connection Errors To The Server

Nov 18, 2009

I have three e-mail accounts set up in Mail 3.6. Since late October, one account has been experiencing intermittent connection errors to the server.

"The attempt to read data from the server [URL] failed."
"The attempt to connect to the server [URL] failed."
"The connection to server [URL] failed because port 110 timed out."

These errors last 15 minutes or so and go on and off all day. I still receive my e-mail fine, albeit somewhat delayed when I'm experiencing a connection error. Three other clients also using Mail with e-mail accounts on the same server (different domains) have also been experiencing the same connection errors over roughly the same time period. I have complained to the webhost thinking it is a problem on their end. They tested each account and claim that the problem is with Mail.

Skeptical, I recreated my problem account in Thunderbird. At the same time I was having connection errors in Mail, the account in Thunderbird worked fine. In the end, I could not reproduce the connection errors in Thunderbird. I'm at a loss what to tell my clients. My set up: Power PC G5; Mac OS X 10.5.8; Mail 3.6

OS X :: Mail Unable To Connect To Gmail Servers - Refused To Allow A Connection On Port 993

Jan 19, 2008

I have my Gmail account set up for IMAP, and use it in Mail. However, as of this morning, Mail can't connect to either the IMAP server or the SMTP server. Whenever I try to connect to the IMAP server, it gives me the following error:

"The server '[URL]' refused to allow a connection on port 993."

I've checked repeatedly and all of my settings are as the Gmail website says they should be. Does anybody have any idea how to fix this?

MacBook Pro :: Abnormally Poor Internet - Connection Timed Out

Sep 9, 2010

So I recently moved into a new apartment with my 2 roommates, one of which has a macbook, while the other has a desktop that is plugged directly into the router. My macbook roomie has no issues with the WiFi. I, however, have been having numerous issues. It mostly seems to be with posting things, sending emails, logging into websites, and playing videos. 9/10 times I can't post topics onto message boards or update my facebook status. My Gmail almost always works well, while my college email can't send a thing. On twitter I often cannot load the next set of tweets. I was trying to order a textbook online today, I added to cart, and when I went to complete the checkout, the connection timed out. I can do all of these things, however, on the WiFi network on campus at school. Basically what I'm asking is, is this a problem on my end that I can fix? I doubt that the problem lies with our internet providers, because I can have my laptop side by side with my roommates, and he has no issues.

Applications :: Port Number And Outgoing Mail Server Incorrect

Feb 12, 2009

About an hour ago (have been trying to sort it since) I was in the middle of sending a couple of e-mails (been emailing a friend for about an hour, so was a sudden occurrence). And the messages don't send, wait in the outbox and an error message pops up JUST on my sky e-mail account, who are my ISP providers. They're claiming the port number and the outgoing mail server are incorrect/causing the error yet I have no touched the setting since the day I set the account up about 5months ago. The first line of the error says 'there may be a problem with the mail server or network' and then it goes on to mention the outgoing mail server and the port number (which is 995).

Windows On Mac :: Connection Errors "out Of Reach" - Won't Load Game

Feb 18, 2010

I've recently upgraded to Snow Leopard and decided to use boot camp to reinstall XP on a secondary partition. The problem I'm having is with getting some programs notably Trillian and Steam to keep their connection. Sometimes they work and sometimes they don't. I am in university halls of residence so I have had to set up some port forwarding to get Steam to connect at all but it's always tantalisingly out of reach.

Steam for example sometimes loads fine but then won't load a game it brings up the 'Game is unavailable' error. Sometimes I can get into team fortress 2 but can't locate any servers, sometimes I can get a server list to populate but cant load the game. Sometimes it doesn't even load Steam at all and fails on the updating step. Trillian has similar problems, sometimes dropping the connection and sometimes running perfectly fine. At first I though this was a firewall issue due to the ports but after I managed to get each step to work at different times, just never together, I began to doubt that.

OS X :: Using Ethernet Port Connection

Jun 14, 2009

I used the MacRumors Buyer's Guide for several months to find the best time to buy a MacBook. I'd never had a Mac before and found it to be so valuable. I hope someone in the forum can be as helpful as the site has been.

Yesterday I bought a new MacBook Pro 13" and as a store option the RAM was doubled to 4GB. Everything has worked well so far, in both OS X and Windows XP through Boot Camp, except for either OS accessing the LAN cable on my home ADSL. Both my portable modem (EMobile network in Japan) and the wireless seem to work with no issue, and both OS will recognize the ethernet port. I'm concerned that perhaps the ethernet adapter was modified when the store installed the memory.

I can remove the ethernet cable from one computer (where it works without any settings changes on my Windows notebook) and plug the same cable into the MacBook and it will not be recognized. The Mac OS error is that no cable is inserted.

However, as it's my first Mac, I didn't know if perhaps some new settings are required to make things work smoothly. Is there any DNS settings etc. that must be set for it to connect? Also is there some kind of connection diagnostic that will specify the location of the error in the machine? I'd like to exhaust any option before shipping this back to the store to be repaired or replaced.

Applications :: Excel 2008 Substantial Calculation Errors

Sep 8, 2008

Has anyone noticed substantial calculation errors in EXCEL 2008 - specifically, the XIRR and XNPV function? I ran a cash-flow series and then ran both the XNPV and XIRR function. Then i used an alternative calculation methodology, using the SUMPRODUCT and Goal Seek functions, to calculation the NPV and IRR of the same series of monthly cash flows (note that these alternative calculation methodologies are used to produce the same incremental calculations that are supposed to be rolled up into the XNPV and XIRR functions).

Results: The XNPV is off by 1.26% and XIRR is off 26.77%. I guess that isnt to bad when considering the investment of millions of $. XNPV would only cost me $126,000 on the million. So much for Gold Standard of financial analysis. Whatever happened to Lotus 1-2-3? It might be archaic but at least it generated proper answers.

Applications :: Partitioning Time Machine Disk - Getting Errors

Apr 30, 2009

Disk utility doesn't seem too happy with adding a partition to my existing time machine disk. It has 750GB capacity, with over 200GB avail. I'm just trying to add a 70GB partition and it raises errors every time. I even tried using a mac that doesn't recognize it as a time machine disk, just a USB drive. Still no luck. I cant delete the data on this drive, so its important I just resize and partition without deleting. Any other options other than disk utility out there?

MacBook :: Display Showing Fuzzy Text / Connected Mini Display Port Via VGA Connection

Jun 16, 2009

I have a mid-late 2008 MacBook connected to a Dell U2211H monitor using a Mini DisplayPort -> VGA connection.

When I use 1920x1080, I only get 60 Hz and the display is a fuzzy (text). Also, there are black bars. Why?

Will my issues be solved using a Mini DisplayPort -> DVI connection? Or should I exchange it for the 2209?

OS X Leopard :: Default Port Mail Used To Send Email

May 26, 2009

My ISP sent an email that they want me to change the port my email program uses. They said most programs use port 25 and they wanted it changed to port 587 because it's safer. I called them to clarify and the tech had me change my Mail 3.6 preferences/advanced from port 995 to port 110 which he said was safer. Doing so renders me unable to e-mail so I switched it back to port 995. He couldn't figure out why 110 wouldn't work and suggested I contact Apple. I need to make any changes to my Mail account or not based either on the message from my ISP or the change the tech was trying to make. Unless I hear otherwise I'm staying at 995.

Software :: Mail Auto Assigns Custom Port 465

Aug 20, 2009

I reinstalled entire mac with all systems included and this problem occurs only after this new installation. The Mail system on mac is now changing the Custom Port from my port 125 to the port 465, which means that whenever I restart Mail no emails wants to go out, because they need port 125. I understand how to change this back to fix the problem but my question is why, when I restart my computer is Mail changing this custom port...?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Very Slow Email Connection On One Mail-server Only?

Mar 7, 2012

I have suddenly, since Friday 2 March, experienced very slow connection to one of my ISP's mailservers. Emails without attachments work ok'ish (a little "hesitantly"), emails with attachments of moderate sizes (eg. +/- 500 KB) download/upload extremely slowly and most of the time fail. I have asked my ISP, who are generally helpful, and they have tested the mailserver and can find nothing wrong. So, here we go: The problem is both for ethernet and wireless.The problem is for one account only. I have a different account with the same ISP, but on a different mailserver, which works absolutely fine.Two different Macs have the same problem. The other PCs with different ISP's accounts work fine.Router is working fine with good internet connection and email via one of the two accounts works fine.It is not a problem on my computer (since it is the same issue for two machines). Both run OSX 10.6.8I have tried both Entourage and Outlook on both machines; same problem everywhere - one account works, the other doesn't (properly).I have tried  with my iPhone, using the same wireless connection and same account details, and it downloads emails with attachments speedily - emails that failed to download on the MBP/Outlook.I have tried one of the machines (a MacBook Pro) at home with a different wireless connection but to the same mailserver and it works fine there!This happened last Friday and no settings have been changed locally for months. My conclusion is (but may be wrong): The router is fineThe macs are fineThe email clients are fineGeneral connection to internet and mail is fineThe mailserver is probably fine But a connection between one mailserver account and the two macs has suddenly gone wrong. It is almost as if there is a setting on either the mailserver saying "I don't like that connection to that place, I will slow it down." or somewhere in this place saying "I don't like that account on that mailserver, I will slow it down."  The question then is:Which network setting is so specific that it can be this selective?
