OS X Mavericks :: Changing Contact Email To Phone?

Jun 28, 2014

I have a friend where I have a single convo with and a group convo with via iMessages. There were times where his messages were sent from his number, and other times from his email address. As you may know, on the Mac it keeps it in the same window. However, on the iPhone it'll separate it. So he unchecked his email on his iPhone. So now everything will be in one window with him on my iPhone, as well as the 3rd friend.  

But now on my Mac. I can not use the group convo to send him a message. I still receive messages from him in the window that I've had opened for the last year. But I can not use my Mac to send a message to the 2 of them, because he won't receive the message.  

With that being said, on the single convo. I was able to click his name and a little window pops open. I was able to select his phone number. It automatically switched over so my messages are now being sent to his phone number. It even displayed "iMessages sent to *phone number*". 

However, on the group message. I select his name and the little window only shows the fact that his email address is no longer registered with iMessages and asks me if I want to remove it. No matter what I do, I can not see his phone number as a selection. Nor can I permanently remove his email address from the group convo. It will disappear, but once I click out of the window then back, his email re-appears.  

I've tried quitting Messages, rebooting the Mac but I can not change his contact info in the group's convo. I don't want to delete that message just to start a new one. Unless I really have to

OS X Mavericks :: Get Messages To Show Contact Names Instead Of Phone Numbers In Notifications?

Jun 22, 2014

Originally, notifications from Messages.app would show the contact name sending the message. I'm not sure what caused it to stop, but now all notifications show up as the phone number of the contact. In the actual app, the names look fine. Is there some way to get contact names to show up again?

OS X :: Address Book Contact Info Changes After Sending Email To Contact

Dec 12, 2009

I have a contact for my mom which used to be her first name and last name which I later changed to just "Mom" in the first name box after getting an iPhone. At the same time I started syncing with MobileMe and have been having this problem for about 2 years. Every time I send her an email it changes her name from just Mom to Mom and then adds her last name back into the last name field.

MacBook Pro :: Syncing The Contact Information From Samsung Evergreen A667 Cell Phone

Nov 11, 2010

My previous phone literally broke and I didn't back up my contacts. So I'm retyping them. I don't want to make that mistake twice.

I plugged in the phone to my MBP but I have no idea what to do.

My phone prompts me to choose Media Player, PC Studio, or Mass Storage. I don't have Media Player. So which do I pick and then what to do on the MBP?

OS X :: Different Contact Email Default When Using Different Mail Accounts

Feb 16, 2009

I've come across a strange problem that I'm not sure if Mac Mail will be able to deal with natively. Basically, I have several contacts in my address book that have 2 addresses; work and home. I also have 2 mail accounts set up; my work account and my home account. I've run into a few problems at work when I'm sending email to colleagues as it was auto-selecting their personal addresses when I typed in their names. I managed to fix that but now when I send mail from my personal account, the auto-select chooses their work email first so I have to scroll down to choose their personal account.

Is there a way of getting mail to understand that if I'm sending mail from my personal account, then "home" addresses should show up first in auto-complete but if I'm sending from my work account, then "work" addresses should show up first? I understand this is probably a bit of a long shot without a third party tool but thought it best to ask!

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Reset The AppleID's Primary Email Contact Address?

Mar 24, 2012

Upon the strong suggestion by the Apple website that I change my primary email address to match my AppleID, I did. However, there are no options to configure this email account, which exists nowhere in the universe. I tried sending mail to this new email address/AppleID account from my work account, only to have it bounce back as undeliverable. On the appleid.apple.com site, there are no options to reset the AppleID's primary email address. My AppleID is now connected to an email address that doesn't exist, I can't configure, etc. etc.

OS X Mavericks :: Can't Upload Contact Archive To ICloud

Nov 30, 2014

Through a mistake I deleted all my Contact info from my 2010 i7 iMac (Yosemite) and iCloud. 

Because my 2 iPads and 2 iPhones are connected to iCloud all the Contact info is gone, zero. 

I have a recent Contact Archive of that info and would like to upload it to my iMac or iCloud.

When I attempt to do this on my iMac using the 'Import' feature the address info shows for a second and disappears.

I have checked Permissions using Disk Utility. 

Can I use Time Machine in any way to solve this?

I do have one iPad that has the original Contact info still on it, can that be useful in restoring to iCloud or my iMac?

OS X Mavericks :: Why Does Mail Try To Contact A Server No Longer In Use

Jun 27, 2014

I briefly tried to set up Mail to contact the university mail server there, but gave up. So I deleted the account in Mail. 

Now, I randomly get messages telling me that Mail is unable to validate the authenticity of NEU's smtp certificate. Every time, I say, 'why are you TRYING to contact NEU's smtp system? I'm not trying to send a message through that mail system! I don't even have an account there anymore!' but of course my computer doesn't know English, and even if it did, it wouldn't know why it does the things it does, so that's a double dose of not getting a response.

OS X Mavericks :: Sync Up Apple Contact Book And Exchange Contacts?

Jun 25, 2014

I have a bunch of contacts in my Apple Contact book but am using Outlook for Mac 2011 for email, contact management, and calendar.  I have read that you have to sync your Apple contact book to your exchange account rather than directly to the Outlook for Mac 2011 programs so you don't create duplicates (contacts coming from the Apple address book AND the Exchange server).  However, I can't find anything that tells me how to sync the Apple Contacts with my Exchange account.  I figure at that point once synced, my exchange account will push the new contacts from the Apple Contact book back into Outlook for Mac 2011 making everything whole.

I installed gmail on my verizon blackberry curve. I have gmail set to automatically receive my school email, (penn state university). The problem is, it take a long time to receive on my phone, it does not push it immediately. Additionally, gmail doesn't check it very often, I usually need to go into the settings and hit the "check mail now" button. Is this normal? I thought I would be able to get my emails immediately.
