OS X :: How To Windows Live Mail's Mails And Contacts Mac's Entourage?
Feb 7, 2010
i'm helping my mom to move all her mails that she saved on her ibm laptop to the old mbp that i passed on to her.... is there a way i can completely dub all the e-mails that are downloaded and the contact lists to mac's entourage? It would be good if someone can provide me instructions from 0 - 10 starting with the windows side
Does anyone know how I can use Windows Live Mail on my Apple Mail application? I have tried following some guides but it seems to have gone wrong. I would like a simple step by step guide in how to do this please, as in what the incoming and outgoing servers will be etc etc?
For example when I search by the sender's name in Finder, it will list emails that contain the sender's name. But when I want to look for those emails in Ｕser/Library/Caches/Metadata/Microsoft.... or wherever all I get is a bunch of numbered emails like "1.vRge08Message" and up to whatever number of emails I got in Entourage.
Why doesn't it display emails by the sender's name like it did when I searched for them in Finder?
I have Windows 7 64-bit on my MacBook Pro. I have Windows Live Mail installed. When I sync iTunes to my iPhone 4, under the Info tab it says "No supported application can be found" for the Calendar and Mail sections even though I have Windows Live Mail and it has a calendar in it.
Two days ago, all my saved and sent emails (except for the last 2 or 3 days) disappeared. I believe I had a corrupted database. I imported a rge backup file from a week ago and got all my emails in the "Saved" folder (whew), but that backup did not have the "Sent" folder, so I still do not have all my sent emails.
How to I recover my sent emails either from the rge backup file or some other way [VERY IMPORTANT]?
Is there anyway to recover the week's worth of emails I lost, saved and sent, from the backup to the crash [not as important]?
I'll no longer be using Entourage, so I'm just looking to recover these emails, and possibly import them into Thurderbird.
I just got my new MBP and am loving it, but I need to move my windows contacts from my pc to my mbp. They are in the .contact file type, located in the contacts folder under my username in vista. Does address book support this file type? If not, is there any other way to move them over?
I need to restore my Entourage contacts from backup. My Entourage DB recently became corrupted and during many unsuccessful repair attempts, I lost my contacts along with some Inbox email on the Exchange server. I've just restored the entire DB from Exchange, but after syncing the restored DB with the Exchange server, my contacts are missing. So, it looks like the Exchange server not only won't import/sync the contacts from my local Entourage DB, but Exchange 'wins' during the sync by wiping out all contacts I have stored locally. Is there anyway I can sync my contacts one-way after the DB restore (local restored DB contacts ------> Exchange server)?
Is there a way to set mail to download only newest mails? like the way mail.app behave on iPad? the email is ymail with pop server, and mail app always start download the oldest mail first,, from sometime in 2005. how do you guys setup your mail.app?
I'm a newbie to Mac and need some help. I find that the pre-installed 'Mail' is rather convenient but have trouble deleting e-mails I no longer need. Upon deleting selected mails and emptying the trash, I find that some items are STILL there when logging into the actual website (i.e. Gmail). E-mails that I thought were long gone are still there. Please someone help? I think I'm missing something.
I've having trouble getting the "webcam" option on "live messenger" on my MAC. There is no option for starting a conversation with a cam and when people request a cam conversation it suggests that i get "window live v7" I've already got this. Do I need a separate webcam instead of the built-in one i have on my laptop?
I don't like the idea of Mail.app downloading the whole e-mail when I want to check for new ones.Is there any way to make it only get the subject? The idea here is to download the whole mail only if I want to (like clicking on the subject).
i am getting lots of emails per day, but most of them are Facebook notifications and Twitter stuff, Is there any way I can Filter those Facebook emails so they show up in a different folder than my Inbox? Also it would be great to do it directly in Gmail so my iPhone does the same
I ask for forgiveness since now if I'm posting something that already exists and I couldn't find, but I wasn't able to find any helpful resource to fix my problem. I've always used Mail and I like it. I have three addresses, one of the provider, the other two belongs to my personal domain. They've always worked fine. Since two months they suddenly stopped to send e-mails. The error says there's a problem with smtp server. I tried to change smtp settings, I've edited mail settings, tried to set up another account and tried to download another app for mail: always the same problem. My mother, that has a mac too and an e-mail account with our provider, doesn't have any problem. So I tried to copy those settings on my MacBook Pro.. nothing.
I just set up my Mac Mail. But it is transferring over 3000 of my old messages, that I don't really want to have. How can I just begin getting new emails, without having to receive all of the old ones? Is that possible? Can someone tell me how to do this?
I couldn't find any similar thread, so here we go. I recently lost all my mails, and therefore tried to use a recovery program without any luck. I suddenly remembered that I had all my mails on my iPhone which somehow was synchronized with my MacBook.So, to my question: Is there any way I can transfer my mails on the iPhone over to my Mail.app on my MacBook?I hope you'll be able to answer my question since the mails are quite important.
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?
Was on the phone with ATT to reconfigure new inbound and outbound settings, verify ports and authentication - still can't send.
In the Mail Preferences Account Information window, the Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) space can't be typed into; it offers an "edit server list" option that opens a window with the terms Description, Server Name, and In Use By Account. ATT instructed me to type the new server name under the Server Name heading but they did not know about the other two categories. So Description was left empty which caused the Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) space (on Account Information window) to have a mail server name attached by a colon to my e-mail address, which was bizarre. Only when Description had the actual server name underneath it did that name showed up in the SMTP space. Whatever is placed under Description in the edit server list window shows up in the Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) space of the Account Information window.
