Applications :: VPN Connection Using Mac OS X's Built In Network Preferences?

Nov 11, 2008

For school, I need to set up a VPN connection to be able to connect my MacBook to the internet. While my school offers the Cisco VPN Client with a preconfigured PCF settings file, I would much rather use Mac OS X's built-in VPN capabilities, through the Network Preferences. Now, my problem is that I don't really know what to do to get this working. Using an online password decoder, I already found out what the password for my school's VPN connection is. But how do all the settings translate between the Cisco VPN Client and Mac OS X's VPN configuration screen?

The PCF file tells the Cisco VPN Client to use Group Authentication, with a group name and a group password (the one I already decrypted). These are already filled in. When starting a connection, I am then asked to fill in my student login details. Now, in the VPN settings screen in System Preferences, there is a box for Account Name. Am I right in thinking this is the box where I fill in my student ID? Or does the group name go here? Then, when I click Authentication Settings..., I can fill in a password. I assume this is where my student password goes? Or should I fill in the password I decrypted?.................

Applications :: Import Mail Account Settings From Thunderbird And / Or Outlook Express Into Mail?

Jan 31, 2010

Is there away to import mail account settings from Thunderbird and/or Outlook Express into Mail? [that is, to help any one searching later on as Mail is too common a word to search for]. I've imported all my messages correctly but don't know how or if it's possible to import my account settings. Also: I'm in the process of migrating all my e-mails / mail accounts / settings and mail rules from Outlook Express to Mail []. I have successfully got all my e-mails across. I have also managed to convert all the e-mail addresses in the 50+ mail rules, as stored in the Windows registry, from hex into text.

Some of my rules have tens of e-mail addresses which if I had to add in each address separately would be a nightmare. Is there away of block adding in e-mail addresses to Mail? Also is it possible to manually edit the mail rules preference file(s) and insert the e-mail addresses into that? I'm aware I have to manually recreate the rules themselves but that's not so difficult. It's the adding back in of all the e-mail addresses that might be, given the large number that exist.

Applications :: Sending Mail From Apple Mail To Outlook Express

Nov 2, 2010

If I send a msg from Apple Mail to i.e. Outlook Express. The same msg shows up with "clean" text formating. That will say, no formatting at all. See this screen: [URL:...] I have just gotten back to the Mac now from 10-11 months in hell with Windows-stuf, so I am really eager to get this fixed. In Apple Mail the same message looks this: [URL:...] I dont want to change to Entourage, so excellent if you can help me out with this.

Applications :: - Showing Sent Messages As Unread On Mail Badge?

Mar 3, 2009

I use an IMAP email account (provided by AOL) and every time I send an email it then comes in to my AOL sent items folder and displays an unread count on It's infuriating.

I think imap stores the sent mail on it's server and I think I'm subscribed to all these folders so when it receives my sent mail, it sends a copy back to me.

I have tried creating a rule that mark all messages from me as read, but to no avail, it still does it anyway.

After being threatened to get hacked, I've decided to clear out all the emails on the mailserver (gmail's online mail client). But before I do, is there a way to download all the emails from my mail server from all time?

Applications :: Gmail On All Mail In Folders Has Been Duplicated To Inbox?

May 22, 2009

I use gmail as my main email account. I have it synched to my iphone (IMAP) and (IMAP). This was all running smoothly until about a week ago when I turned on my mac and opened mail. It started downloading hundreds of emails.

I looked over them and it seems that all the mails that I have moved to sub folders have been copied to my inbox again and marked as unread.

I have not knowingly changed any settings on my iphone, mac or web based gmail.

Applications :: Use Entourage Over Mail Due To It's Robustness - Installing A New Mail Account?

Nov 23, 2009

I have decided to use Entourage over Mail due to it's robustness and more features than I can possibly ever use. Here the question:I am coming from a PC using Outlook 2007. I have done my research on how to get my mail off my Outlook and importing it into Entourage.Fine, great and dandy. I haven't performed it yet but I have a couple of questions before running with this.1. I have MobileMe account. Installing that into Entourage was relatively easy. Done.2. Installing a new "mail" account (POP or IMAP), I'm going to assume is the same way BUT if I install this, will it mix with my MobileME? What I am expecting to see is that it would store separately in it's own section. What is right?

Applications :: Mac Mail - My Sent Mail Doesn't Show Up In Threaded Messages?

May 8, 2010

In an effort to make Mail more gmail-like, I selected the "View>Organize by thread" option. However, this only seems to group messages in my inbox and doesn't include my sent messages within the same conversation.

Is this how threaded messages are supposed to work? Just one side of a conversation? Or is there a setting to get my sent messages to show up in the threaded conversation?

I am using Mac Mail to check my gmail acct via IMAP. I am using the settings specified by google. I have selected the appropriate folders and mapped them using the "Use this folder for..." menu item. My sent messages are both in the Sent folder (for a while, then they disappear) and below in my Gmail>Sent Mail folder (always current). I have the option selected to store them on the server.

I have decided to start using gmail and keeping my email online instead of stored locally in the Mail program.

I have all my old mail and sent mail downloaded locally in the Mail program.

Is there an easy way to export all of that into gmail? I see I can import mail into gmail from other mail accounts, but here I am talking about importing mail that is now stored locally.

Applications :: Apple Mail - Checking Mail At Different Times

Aug 31, 2010

I have two old hotmail accounts that don't really get much mail these days. I don't want to completely abandon these email addresses so I have them use POP3 in my Apple Mail client (along with my other emails addys). Since hotmail is hardly stable with pop3 I get a lot of connection failed messages. I think it's because Apple Mail is hitting Hotmails servers every 5 mins to check for new mail - I don't need that. Is there a way to have certain email accounts be checked at different times than other accounts - like only once a day for my hotmail and once an hour for my gmail?

Applications :: Advantages In Mail With Respect To Mail Retrieval

Jan 28, 2009

What advantage does one have in Mail when one sets the preferences to retrieve your mail every one minute versus 15 minutes or every hour? I prefer to get my mail ASAP but am I conceding memory or CPU I just can't see why I would select "Check for new mail: one hour" in my Mail preferences.

Applications :: Using AND & OR In Mail's Mail Rules - Use In Outlook Express

Feb 1, 2010

Is it possible to use both AND and OR rules with Mail's [] mail rules? For example in Outlook Express I have a rule which says should: the message body contain ANY of the following words:

AND the account is <insert account name here>
THEN move to <insert folder name here>

However on Mail there seems to only be the option for ANY or ALL and if I apply ANY then it will also move all mail from any account which has the words one, two, three or four, not just from the account I supplied. In additional all other e-mails from the account supplied will be moved as well, even if they don't contain those words.

Applications :: Can't Send Mail Via Exchange From Mail

May 3, 2008

After numerous posts on the Apple Discussions site and spending 4 hours one afternoon with the "geniuses" I still can't send email from the SMTP setting for my Exchange account. I've literally tried everything, IMAP is turned on on the office server, we use MXLogic for upstream/downstream filtering but the IP address is the same as it is for our network. I'm beyond frustrated. Is anyone else having issues with SENDING mail via their Exchange server settings? Hotmail and my .mac account send and receive just fine. I've had to "send on behalf of" with every email that I respond to viw the work Exchange server and it's pretty ridiculous.

At the apple store, I used the same exact settings in their Entourage account that I use in Mail and it IMMEDIATELY connected and allowed me to send. I'm just not real fired up over spending $150 for bloated MS software when I've been operating just fine without it.

Applications :: Mail From Gmail / Spam In Sent Mail?

Feb 28, 2010

Don't know if this was addressed yet, but "Spam" mail from my gmail (spam folder - duh!) keeps popping up in my "Sent Mail" folder in Mac mail. I found this post online, but am not tech savvy enough to know what they're talking about.


Okay. I know what's going on there. You are correct this is spam that does not originate from you. The issue is that it is not your gmail address that is being forged, but your other address that forwards to gmail. You have also configured your forwarding server as a valid mail originator for your address in SPF. So the mail looks completely legitimate to gmail: it arrives at gmail from a server that you have configured as a valid server to send from your email address, therefore gmail thinks it really is from your email address.

If you control your own domain and you use gmail's smtp server for outgoing mail, you should remove the SPF entry that marks the forwarding server (URL) as a valid originator for your domain. Then gmail will be able to figure out that this is forged. This will likely cause gmail to put this stuff properly in Spam and to avoid showing you the images.(URL)

Applications :: Mail Won't Get / Send Mail?

Feb 28, 2009

My wife's computer (G4 iBook, 10.3, AT&T email provider) recently refuses to get or send email (spontaneously it would appear - no installs or updates made). The error that keeps coming up is that it is "Unable to verify SSL server xxx".

I have checked and rechecked the settings at least 10 times.

I tried deleting then reloading the server certificate (in just about every keychain possible user, anchors, cert) and then copied it from my computer that works (same server) and then reloaded the one AT&T provides all with no success.

I tried deleting and rebuilding

I have searched virtually every site and while there are some with similar problems, their fixes don't work for me.

Finally I downloaded Thunderbird and used the same settings and it works flawlessly the first time.

My computer (MacBook, 10.4) and an iPod touch can both download email without issue and have seen no difference during this same timeframe.

PowerPC :: Disconnecting Built In CRT?

Nov 17, 2007

First of all here are are the Specs on it
Blueberry Colored
iMac DV
PowerPC G3 400 MHZ
MAC OS 9.1
10/100 NIC
56K Modem
4 X Slot load DVD-ROM Drive
two USB Ports
USB Keyboard/Hockey Puck mouse (Which I hate luckily any USB Mouse will work)
External VGA Port

It was given to me because the built in CRT came on purple every other start up Now it will not come on at all even though I can still hear the loud noise from the Degauss cable and the Power Supply and I feel the tube still throwing off alot of heat like a CRT does. I can get a picture on an external monitor as a mirror but not as a main monitor. So three questions is it safe to use this way with an external monitor and the built in CRT still attached? and how would I go about disconnecting the Built in CRT?, is there any way to fix this? Currently the HDD is blank as thats the way it was given to me but I was also given the restore DVD of OSX 10.4 from another Mac.
