OS X :: Mail Application On Mac - Meaning Of Rank?
Dec 2, 2009
When I open up my mail application on my mac there is a search bar on top. When I search for something the items that I searched for obviously comes up. Picture of what I'm going to ask: What does the "rank" mean?
My isp (Comcast) informed me that I could no longer send emails unless I changed my email port from port 25 to port 587. When I open my network preferences to make the change I get a message that my network preferences have been changed by another application. When I cancel the message it reappears and will not allow me to do anything even quit network preferences.
Does anyone have any idea as to what those icons are in under "Fonts" in the Apple mail program? Launch Mail. New. Choose Fonts. And you'll see " T underlined" explained....T cross thru, etc. Then you'll see a colored box...launches colors....Then a picture of a page. What does that do? Another "T" this time you can change the background color of the box back and forth. Then some sort of bars with a triangle, a box and a smaller box. Wait? Am I playing Myst? Then, finally a wheel that you can change from degrees.
I'm making the move to mac, (will have my mac pro Tuesday) I was curious to which is everyones prefered web browser with mac cause I've never used safari..how does safari rank with firefox and chrome? What do the majority of you guys use and really how is the overall web browssing experience on the macbook pro..?
I have an early 2011 MacBook Pro running OS Lion (10.7.3) and in the last two weeks I face the following problem with the Mail application and my Yahoo mail account: although the account appears in the side bar of the application and it will search for new messages when I launch the Mail app, it doesn't load any messages and I also realised that all Mailboxes of the named account are blank! The messages appear normally when I reach my account through the Yahoo page! I tried to remove and re-import the account in the Mail app, but it just worked for two days and now the Mailboxes are blank again! I have no problems with the other two mail accounts I reach through the same application (both POP accounts).
When sites do various benchmark tests, they typically use something like 3DMark, and I think Cinebench CPU, etc.
First, I probably got those benchmark apps wrong...which ones do tech sites typically use?
Also, what exactly do these benchmarks exam.
Say I have a rendering application that is processor heavy...what benchmark should I be looking at?
Say I have another application for modeling, and I know it is graphics intensive. What benchmark should I be looking at?
And, to round things out, if I have an application that I know is memory heavy, what stats should I look at.
The reason I'm asking, is when upgrading my computer (at this point RAM), or considering a new MacPro, I want to know I'm buying for the right reasons.
I don't want to buy a powerful computer to find out that its max potential is not fully realized as it relies on something else. Granted I understand a new comp all around will perform better. However, applications such as Maxwell render does not hold back, it will use every processor available (8-cores would be amazing!), but others don't rely on processor, but memory more so.
Even then, I'm not sure all the time how the application performs. With as many apps as I use for different things (Rhino NURBS modeling [XP], Maxwell Render, VIZ/3DS Max, SketchUp, Adobe CS3, CAD) I can't always tell what part of the comp they use.
Thanks [for those who read everything and understand what I'm asking]
I use gmail and have 288 messages to upload, but it gets stuck at email 20. Have gone to gmail.com to delete # 20 email, but the application is still getting stuck. It's also duplicating messages on Mail application.
i'm not new to computers, i just woke up, booted my mac... next thing you know my mail app just isn't opening and i have to force quit to close it.there's nothing else to say really, could i delete it and install it again?
This is very likey a simple fix, so I appreciate your help in advance and your bearing with me. On my iMac (10.5.8) I use mail.app to read my gmail account. On my Dell netbook (Windows 7) I use Outlook. Pretty standard stuff. But when one app downloads the message from the server, the other app doesn't. This is a major problem because I need to consolidate my emails all the time. Outlook has "Leave a copy on the server" checked and mail.app has "Delete from server" unchecked. Other than this, the gmail account functions perfectly in both apps.
I just got my MBA 11.6" with 64gb storage. I loaded up my Gmail account into the Mail app and it started downloading thousands of old emails. Is that taking up any considerable amount of space? I mean the text files probably aint so big but all the attachments etc.
I've set up my Hotmail account with POP and Httpmail. Everything looks good up until the point it gets my mail and this is where things goes wrong. It DOESNT get mail. T_T no mail shows up whatsoever on the bottom left it says getting mail. 1xxx out of 1xxx and the bar goes to full but no mail shows up.
Ever since I upgraded to Leopard over a year ago, my Mail.app has been pretty buggy. my mail.app is currently set up to connect to my university IMAP server with SSL and password authentication. Before I upgraded from Tiger to Leopard, mail would always retrieve any new mail on the IMAP server every minute and any time I press get mail. Ever since I upgraded however, the get mail function hasn't worked exactly as it should.
Sometimes get mail would work, sometimes it won't, and sometimes it takes a long time for my computer to automatically retrieve new e-mails. The weird thing is, connection doctor shows no connection abnormality, and if get mail doesn't work, I can get it to work again if I quit and reopen mail, which is always a pain. Mail on my iPhone works perfectly (syncs to my MBP), and I have already tried deleting mail.app, reinstalling from my Leopard DVD and basically resetting all settings.
It's on the top of my list right now. I tried closing it and restarting it and it still have a high memory count. It's higher then my firefox which has 30 tabs opened. Anyone know of it's designed this way? or I have too many RSS feeds? I only have 5 RSS with 1 Gmail IMAP account on it.
I have problem with mail application. I cannot get Gmail to work with it, I don't know why. I tried and nothing, I remove it and try again and same thing. It's written: The Gmail IMAP server [URL] is not responding. Try checking the network connection, and that the server name is correct. Otherwise, the server might be temporarily unavailable. If you continue, you might not be able to receive messages. I have already hotmail, and it works without problem. I even enable IMAP server at the gmail when I go through website directly. I am using MAC OS X. Mail application is is 4.2 version.
My mail.app just began not working this morning. It opens, it begins to load messages, i click on "All Mail" (using gmail imap), and then eventually I get the "wheel of death"... spins and spins i force quit eventually, reopen and same thing. How do i fix my mail.app?
