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.
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 "mail.mac.com" on port 143 timed out.
My Mail is no longer working with AOL. I keep getting a message saying that my "connection to port 993 as timed out". I cannot find a way to reactivate this connection. PLEASE HELP someone! I am going mad with this problem.
Why am I suddenly getting an error message : The server returned the error: The connection to the server ‚Äúp02-imap.mail.me.com‚ÄĚ on port 993 timed out.? I add/edit SMTP servers. Am receiving emails, but can't send from imap acct.
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
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?
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.
Well I'm here at college and my iBook keeps giving me connection errors when trying to connect to the wireless network. It works fine at my house but it only works occasionally here at school. I'm not sure what the problem is but I was wondering if anyone has any ideas of what I could try to fix this issue.
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).
For the past few days, I have noticed Mail was running slowly - especially when starting.¬† Would take forever to start pulling in messages.¬† I looked for solutions and disabled non-essential accounts.¬† Then I took all 5 email accounts offline.¬† Still would get hangs and even beachballs today. ¬†
I opened console and found that I was getting a LOT of disk1s2 I/O errors whenever Mail was opened.¬† The errors would continue until it was closed.
Note: This is on a mid-2011 iMac.¬† Disk1s2 is the internal hard drive.¬† I now boot off an SSD thunderbolt.¬† The internal holds all data; applications live on the SSD.¬†
I restarted the computer.¬† Then opened console and waited.¬† No i/o errors.¬† I opened every other program in my dock and got one i/o error when Carbon Copy Cloner was first opened.¬† I closed everything and then opened Mail.¬† It hung as usual and the I/O errors started coming.¬† I eneded up with 40 I/O errors in the 10 minutes that Mail was opened and (eventually) closed.¬† This was with all accounts set to offline.¬†¬†
About this Mac: OS 10.9.3 2.7 i5 32 gigs RAM (I use Photoshop a lot and decided to max out RAM).¬† Ram has been there for over 1 year.
I'm using Mac OS X 10.6.2 and I think that was working in the past: I used to be able to chat with my MSN contacts. Now I get this error. iChat can't communicate with the jabber account "@hotmail". The operation couldn't be completed. Operation timed out. I checked my password, and it is correct. I can check my Hotmail emails using those credentials. I didn't change the server settings as well.
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.
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.
I have been given the attached one-pager with screenshots of how to configure a Windows Outlook client to work with our corporate email system (Exchange).
I want to configure the Mail client on my Mac, however.
Can anyone give me a clue where these things are entered? When I add a new account in Mac Mail, and choose Exchange 2007, I don't see similar fields. My guesses so far have resulted in "the server cannot be contacted on port 443
Since Friday March 23 email has been inaccessible. I have network connections, Safari is working, I can get to icloud mail but the mail program won't connect.¬†As far as I can tell Apple says there's no mail outage.On Thursday I used my work Win 7 laptop to move to iCloud from [URL](all I want is email; nothing else). Did this change something?
Tried to compile the latest version of aircrack-ng today (1.00 rc2.)
There seems to be a few errors in the aircrack-ng.h file that prevent me from compiling it.
Code: laptop:aircrack-ng-1.0-rc2 jethryn$ make install make -C src install make -C osdep Building for Darwin gcc -g -W -Wall -Werror -O3 -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -D_REVISION=0 -fPIC -I.. -c -o osdep.o osdep.c
I am using the software for legitimate, legal purposes, in case you were wondering.
Ever since YouTube has updated their video page, I keep on getting these "Old Flash - Go Upgrade!" error messages. I have re-installed Flash twice and I'm still getting the problem... however, just refreshing the page seems to work - but is getting very annoying.
I'm using Safari 4, anyone else having this problem?
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.
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?
