OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Show From Field (Sender) In Mail Message List

May 20, 2012

I've recently migrated to Lion and am finding the new layout of Mail frustrating as it shows my mail by the recipient rather than the sender. As the recipient is usually me, I have what appears to be a inbox of emails to myself but I have to open each email (or preview it) to reveal who actually sent it to me. Is there a way to have the sender (From field) showing in the list rather than the To field?

I need to have them sorted by Date so that the most recent messages are at the top. But when I choose View > Message Attributes the option to select "From" is already ticked but it is also greyed out.I have temporarily fixed this by using the classic view but I would really like to know how to do this in the new view?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Nickname Field Listed Into Field Of Apple Mail?

Apr 4, 2012

If you have a contact in Addressbook (AB) with a nickname, if you also use Apple Mail (AM) and create a new email and start to type the contact's email in the TO field, AM will finish your typing giving you a list of related possible email addresses to choose from. The problem is that in addition to the email addressk AM adds the contact's nickname as opposed to it's firstname/lastname or even business name. We need a preference for this, per contact. 

Example: In AB you have a contact: 

Name: Jon Doe
Company Doe Company
Nickname: The Doester
email: jon.doe@doecompany.com 

In AM you start to write an email: and type: "jon" and AM shows you a list of possible related emails one of which will be: "The Doester" [URL]Commentary: now if a casual email to a friend, this is OK. But what if this is a business oriented email and "The Doester" isn't appropriate? You can only stop the inclusion of "The Doester" by deleting it from the Nickname field in the AB. This is presumptuous on Apple's part, or a bug, that the Nickname should trump the first/lastname or company name. 

I don't exactly know the answser to this. If we could easily choose which name to append in front of the email address (firstname/lastname, company name or nickname) that would be cool. Or maybe no name gets added if it has to be: all or nothing from a programming point of view. But having nickname as the primary, if it exists, can be a problem in certain correspondence IMHO.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Japanese Font Won't Show Up In Asian Text List

I have a Japanese font that I was using in Pages on my iMac (uses Mac OS X v10.6.8). I installed it onto my new MacBook Pro (Mac OS X 10.7). But when using Microsoft Word, the font won't work. It's listed in the Latin Text Font list, but it doesn't show up in the Asian Text Font list. Is there a way to add the font so it'll be available in the Asian Text Font list?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: List Of What X-Spam Headers Apple Mail Will Look At / When Determining Junk Mail Status?

Apr 25, 2012

Apple Mail has a preference to 'Trust junk mail headers in messages' but I can not find a list of what those headers are.By trial and error I've learned the "X-Spam-Flag: YES" will work (exactly that, no extra info), but I'd like to know what other options there are... particularly if I can send a score/rating back and have it look at that.But I can't find a list of supported headers.The Internet is full of "common spam headers" and yet none of them actually seem to work and lots of people who can't get it working with spamassassin which is incredibly common.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: New Messages Show As Read As Soon As Touch The Inbox Or The Message

Apr 18, 2012

In old style view. Every time I touch a message, it turns to read even if I haven't double clicked to "open it". I presume this is because it is previewing but I don't want it to do this. Also, every time I click on "inbox" to look at my messages, the top message in the list automatically changes to read. Again, I haven't opened the email and in this case I haven't even touched it! Can I TURN OFF PREVIEW?  I've been looking around but can't seem to do this.

Mar 11, 2012

I had some email come to me and I didn't feel like reading it that moment ... so i waited an hour or so and then I returned to my mail account to actually open and read it. Strangely enough it was not there anymore. My qurestion is this,.. if an email is sent by someone, ....and it is not opened up,... can that sender (using a downloaded app of some sort) retract that email after giving it some thought ... so that the recipient doesn't have that email anymore?

Jun 5, 2014

I''m using Mac Mail for all my mail account (4 of them) and they all work perfectly except for one of my account that is connected through Exchange. The problem is that all the mails are showing my name instead of the sender's name. Every time is switch to another mailbox and comeback to this one (which is my professional mailbox), inbox shows sender's name for 2 minutes, until it refreshes itself.

Applications :: Multiple Email Sender Addresses In Apple Mail?

Oct 31, 2009

I have one IMAP email account and setup various email aliases. I used for each alias also a sender name. I tried to setup different sender email addresses and names in Apple Mail but did not succeed.

I was only able to add a comma separate list o email addresses to one account but not different sender names for each email address.

BTW, I also can't setup different accounts for each email address because they share the same IMAP Mail Server with the same account username and password.

ICloud On Mac :: Controlling Sender / Recipient Name That Appears On Mail Messages

Dec 11, 2014

My husband and I both use our one alias iCloud mail accounts. Both the alias and the main account were created in my name (not his) and yet his name appears as the sender and recipient on messages sent and received through the alias. I've rechecked settings in iCloud and his name is not anywhere. Why is this happening and how can I change it so that my name rather than his appears on messages?

OS X :: Mac Mail.app Strips 'From' Field When Sending Mail?

Oct 28, 2010

I have a peculiar problem to which I have been unable to find a solution, despite searching far and wide on the Internet.

I access my company's microsoft exchange server email account through mail.app on my mac. In setting up this account, everything was detected easlity and I can send and receive mail without any issue, except one:

When I send an email, my name, in the From field, gets stripped as it gets sent. If I keep the mail as draft, I can see my email address in the From field, but when I finally send the email, that field gets stripped and is now blank.

So now, when I go back and look into my "sent" folder, the from field is blank.

This does not happen when I send email, via the same exchange account, from my iphone or ipad, only mail.app does this. This also does not happen when I send email through my yahoo or gmail account via mail.app.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mac Mail Won't Show Error If Mail Is Too Large

May 10, 2012

We have an Exchange 2003 server and use Mac Mail as the imap/smtp email client.

All works fine but Mac Mail does not offer a warning if I try to send an email which exceeds the server sending limit of 10mb. If I use exactly the same email account on the same Mac but in Thunderbird, or MS Entourage I am presented with a warning when it tries to send the email, saying the the mail exceeds the mail limit.

But Mac Mail does not do this. It processes the email (just like the other apps) then it makes the whoosh (mail sending noise) and the email disappears!! its not been placed in the drafts or sent mail and I would have no way to know this mail had not been sent.

I take the minutes for a local operatic society.  At these meetings there are usually 6 or 7 people present.  I have their email addresses stored in my address book, but how do I set up a mailing list which contains all members names and email addresses so I can send just one email which will reach all of them?  I am sure this is an easy thing to do, but I just can't seem to fathom out how to do it.

I have looked in Library/application support, but can find no entry for Mail or Address book. I know that there must be a file somewhere with this data.

OS X Leopard :: No Reply To Field In Mail Rules

Nov 8, 2008

I'm trying to sent up an automatic response email in mail rules, the problem is when I filter the email I want to respond to, I don't get the option to send a response to the "Reply-To" field, I can only reply to the "From" field which is no good to me. The mails I receive are booking inquiries generated by an online form so the "From" field is always the same email address not the guest address which is in the "Reply-To" field.
