OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mail "Looses" HTML Formatting Apparently Randomly

Apr 17, 2012

I use Mac OS X Mail and generally have very few issues. However, I ocassionally receive emails which I know are formatted as HTML, but they nevertheless show up as text... and sort of jumbled text at that (i.e., with URL links expanded inline and other issues that cause the email to be difficult to read). It doesn't happen extremely often, but it does happen often enough to be annoying. I have Mail sync'ed to several accounts: one POP3, and two IMAP as I recall. It has happened with emails retrieved from each service at one time or another. 

As I understand it, an HTML email usually also contains a text version within the content... and each mail client has to recognize a given email as either HTML or text (or RTF). Indeed, I can view the raw source for the email in Mail, and I see in the payload of the email statements such as "This is a multi-part message in MIME format" followed by sections denoted as Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8" Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64 and later as Content-Type: text/html; charset="utf-8" Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64. It just seems that Mail occassionally ignores the text/html section. 

Is there a way to force Mail to switch display of a given message to HTML or to text? I see options to select "Text Encoding" under the Message menu bar option, various stylistic choices under the Format header, and even the View Raw Source option under View | Message menu bar option. This last option (View | Message) also has some options regarding display "alternatives" (plaintext, best, next, etc) but all are greyed-out. Perhaps this is the issue and Mail is simply not understanding the HTML due to a slight mistake in the format of the content and it thinks it is only displayable as plain text?

Software :: Formatting Text In Mail Signature

Oct 8, 2010

I want to create a colourful signature in Mac Mail but I can't figure out how to use different fonts and colours within the same signature. All I have managed to do is change the default font for all my email messages. Could someone please explain where the font formatting controls are for signatures?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can't Login To Mac After Formatting Disc

May 6, 2012

Last week I decided to delete everything on my disc and install Lion on clear disc. But before that I created an Time Machine disc and copied everything to it. I did the installation proces. Everything's worked fine until I turned my MBP off and on again. It has asked me for a password (to log in). It was (and still is) very strange because on this computer I had only one password and it's incorrect! I can't log in, I can't change settings! Every time if I want to use my computer I have to use Snow Leopard's installation disc and reset password. But it's even stranger. After I do this (every time!) the password is still incorrect (if I for example want to change settings or reboot my MacBook).

May 18, 2012

I have loaded windows 7 and parallels. I want to load MS office so I can send properly formatted excel and doc files to my client.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: "MediaKit Reports Block Size Error" When Formatting Drive?

Jun 12, 2012

I got a new 2TB hard drive, and I'm trying to format it as HFS+ journaled case sensitive encrypted, each time I try I get the following error: "MediaKit reports block size error, usually caused by not being a multiple of 512." This is a brand new drive, it has a GUID partition map with one partition, that was created by Disk Utility, and the disk passed a full hardware scan from Drive Genius. Normally when I get an error I can google it, but this particular error only gives me links to RAID problems, and I'm not doing anything with RAID. What determines the block size? I did not get an option to set it anywhere that I could see. How do I fix this error and get my drive encrypted?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mail Application Doesn't Keep Data Of Yahoo Mail Account

Apr 13, 2012

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).

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Remove Mail From Gmail When Archiving Locally On Apple Mail?

Jun 21, 2012

I have been using Gmail for about 7 months, now. I am using it in conjunction with a MacBook Pro (15 inch, mid-2010, i5, 2.53 GHz, running OS 10.7.4 and the current version of Mail) and an iPhone 4S (iOS 5.1.1 with the pre-installed Mail app). I, rarely, use Gmail's web interface and prefer to view and manage my mail using my devices.

I, recently, discovered a Gmail behavior that I wasn't aware of. Whenever I deleted an email from my Inbox on my MacBook, it wouldn't, actually, delete from Gmail. Instead, a copy of the mail would remain in Gmail's "All Mail" folder. It seems that Gmail and I have different ideas about deleting. When I delete, it means that I would, actually, like to get rid of it, not hide it somewhere else. After sorting through the, almost, 3000 emails in the "All Mail" folder and re-deleting everything that I thought I had already deleted (a pain, to be sure), I found the solution to my problem.In Apple Mail, I checked both Trash options in my account preferences then selected Gmail's "Trash" folder and used the "Use This Mailbox For" option to map it to Mail's trash (similarly, I mapped the trash folder on my iPhone to Gmail's trash folder). Now, everything I delete is going to the same place (and actually getting deleted).

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 :: Mail Disappears From Inbox In Apple Mail OSX 10.7.3

Apr 23, 2012

Moved to my new Mac Book Pro from Linux 3 days ago. My first Apple computer.Wonderful machine and OS. Set up my G Mail account on Apple Mail with the wizard and was receiving e mails no problem.Today all of the mail from both my inbox and sent mail disappeared. I did notice that both my incoming mails and sent mails end up accessible in the folder G Mail/All Mail-- the messages from both inbox and sent mail that disappeared from their respective boxes are in there. In reviewing my various mail settings I notice that Apple Mail set the account up as IMAP rather than POP. I also noticed that there was no way to change this i.e. edit the account. I am not that well versed on differences between POP and IMAP. I also tried rebuilding the inbox after I noticed that the contents disappeared and it made no difference. It is essential that I keep copies of everything on my local machine as well as the server.

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.
