MacBook Pro :: Sending Large Attachment - Mail Frozen

Nov 17, 2008

Yesterday I tried to send a Quicktime movie that I made with iMovie as an attachment to an email. I knew something was wrong when it kept "sending" for hours. I could not get it to stop, no matter what I tried. I used Force Quit on Mail: no effect on the spinning circles. I shut the computer down and then restarted. Signed into Mail--> still had spinning circles. I took the mailboxes offline and then put them back online: spinning circles remained.

I deleted all of the outgoing messages several times, but whenever I came back, they reappeared. I shut off my computer overnight. This morning the spinning circles are gone, and a static circle remains, and I am unable to send or receive email. What can I do? I have four Mac mail accounts and they all have important information in them. How can I unfreeze my mail? BTW, the gmail accounts that go to the mac account are ok--it is just the "@mac.com" accounts that are frozen. I cannot find this in a search.

Applications :: Mail Crash With Large Attachment - Finder Super Slow

Apr 22, 2007

I'm happily using my new 24" iMac, but I've run across a little problem this evening. I was trying to send a 225mb file as a mail attachment through my Gmail account using Mail. When I go to send the file, Mail crashes and disappears. This happened a couple times, so I logged directly into Gmail and sent the file through the web browser. Now the system is hung up 'sending' in the Gmail browser, and Finder has become very sluggish (slow response to clicks, errors printing, etc). Can the iMac and/or Mail handle sending files of this size?

IMac (Intel) :: Stuck In Recovery Mode

Sep 5, 2014

So I recently erased my 2007 iMac through recovery mode. That process went fine. But when I went to go install the latest version of the mac OS (still through recovery mode) it comes back with a window reading basically that process I just did failed. I did this process many times, it doesn't work, and now at the moment I have iMac sitting in recovery mode and I can't do anything on it. Should I bring it into a store?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Stuck In Recovery Mode - Cannot Erase Hard Drive

Mar 28, 2012

I tried reformatting while running Snow Leopard, but the option was grayed out and the install disc made the computer hang at the white bootup screen. I figured I'd just upgrade to Lion and do a clean install (not an option). 

After upgrading to Lion, I booted into recovery to erase the hard drive. I did it and it took less than ten seconds (bad sign). 

Now I can't get past recovery and the hard drive is still full.

Am having lots of Mail issues today, but besides not being able to receive messages, the ones I have gotten with attachments, when you pull down the "save" attachment button, the font is a bunch the letter A in a box. Any way to change to the default font. Have tried changing the font in the preferences, but it doesn't seem to change that area. Cannot read what the attachments even are.

OS X :: How Can I Open E-mail Attachment File From A Trusted Source?

Oct 31, 2009

I received an e-mail attachment file from a trusted source, type .xfdl. Tried to open but was denied the reason was "this type of file may contain spam or a virus". I know the file has already been read by several individuals who said no spam or virus detected.

When I get an attachment like a word doc, some really small file, I have no problem to download/view it. But in the same mail, if there's one bigger file, powerpoint/zip etc, no matter how many times I tried to save it, view it, download it, I just have no way to do it. I am using Mac OS x.

OS X :: Setting Leopard Mail Save Attachment Button To Ask Location?

May 20, 2009

I recently upgraded from Tiger to Leopard Mail, and the save attachment button has new behavior -- used to be it would always ask which directory to save attachments to; now it automatically saves them in the download folder in the dock, and I have to drag them individually to the right folder. I can't find an option to change to the old "always ask" behavior.

Intel Mac :: Mail Not Working After Attempt To Send Large File?

Jun 21, 2012

So the other day I tried to send a large file through the Mail app to a friend. I realized after clikcing send that the file was indeed too large to send since my Mail froze in the attempt of sending it. I used force quit to get out of Mail and opened it again, and then clicked the x button when it started to send again. But then the message was still in my outbox and in my drafts, and Mail would try to update my inbox and drafts but just continue loading. I went to my outbox to delete the message, and when I did a notification popped up that said "The message could not be moved to the mailbox "Trash—On My Mac". The operation couldn't be completed. File exists". Now whenever I open Mail it's the same story, where it attempts to send the message, and then everything's trying to load but never does.(I went to iCloud recently to send a message, and the only remnant of this action was a draft of the message without the file, which I deleted.)

OS X Yosemite :: Importing Large MBox File From 10.6.8 Mail Fails

Dec 8, 2014

I have several local .mbox files created with the Apple Mail client from 10.6.8 saved "on my Mac"  after doing a clean install of Yosemite I am having trouble getting them to import.  One is ~5GB the other is ~2.5 GB.  a smaller one (66MB) with 300 items fails to fully import (gets only ~170 items). 

Is there a  better way to force the new mail client to read these or is there another mail program that can read these?  These are important emails.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Email As Attachment Grayed Out In Word

Apr 12, 2012

My email attachment in word was grayed out. I am very concerned that google chrome somehow changed my settings. I did not opt for google chrome or gmail to be my default email --- not ever! Yet when I opened up my email preferences, gmail was chosen. I had to shut down after I rechose Mail as my primary email. I found this link at Office: Mac. [URL]. Now everything is working again.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Possible To Attach File (Embedded In Message) To Mail?

Apr 19, 2012

Is there a way that Mail can work like MS Entourage or Outlook and more professionally attach files to the message? For example when I attach a picture or audio file its always embedded into the message at the bottom or top of the email. Outlook and Entourage do not work that way.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Mac Storing Copies Of Every Email Attachment On Hard Drive?

Mar 8, 2012

I am putting this under OS questions because I assume it is an OS thing. The computer is a Mac Mini, I also have a Mac Pro workstation. I am consolidating all photos on to one external drive I plan to duplicate and remove to a safe deposit box, returning it occasionally to update it. My wife tends to store stuff on the stystem drive of our home mac mini (which is only 120gb) so I did a search of "Macintosh HD" looking for anything with ".jp" in the filename.

I soon realized most of these were in a folder that could be generically described as "USER>>Library>>Mail>>IMAP-(Account)>>GMAIL>>" with several layers more depending on when it was sent. It seems every email is being physically stored on hard drive, including attachments. This has turned into many GB of stuff, and explains some of our system drive congestion. How do I stop this? Note that I do not want to stop iCal from syncing my Gmail calandars, I just don't need mail stored on HDD, as it stays in Gmail server forever anyway.

Note also that we both sign in as same user, and I use gmail and it does NOT do it for my account, only hers, so I assume when I set up system it asked for an email and I put in hers. She uses browser based mailing, so I don't see why this is happening, unless mail just updates anyway. This is cluttering up my system drive unnecessarrily, and seems an odd feature. How do I safely eliminate files that are there (not just pics but anything else that is unnecessary) and how do I keep it from doing it again in the future?

OS X :: 64bit Mode Snow Leopard - Computer Always Boot Into 64-bit Mode If This Is Done Once?

Aug 28, 2009

I did a bit of reading on the internet, and it looks like most computers will not boot into 32-bit mode by default with 10.6. It appears that if while booting the user holds the 6 and 4 keys, the computer will boot into 64-bit mode.

Does anyone know anything about this? Will the computer always boot into 64-bit mode if this is done once? Will it even make a difference? Will the average user want to do this?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Time Machine Fails To Backup After Recovery

Mar 17, 2012

Just receovered from a disk crash. TM brings everything back on my new HD. The problem is that when I try to backup again, I get an error message saying to check TM's preferences. One problem may be that it seems that TM wants to back up the full HD rather than doing an incremental one.
