Software :: Created New Email Account - Cannot Receive Messages

Sep 4, 2009

I created a new account on my iMac so that she can use my iMac. I deactivated her email account in Mail in my account and activated it in Mail in her account. (Using 10.5.7 and Mail 3.6). She can send mail but not receive mail. If she sends me an email from her account, I can get it when I log in to Mail in my account. However, when I send an email to her, it is sent - but nothing shows up when Check Mail is clicked on her Mail. (If I reactivate her account in my Mail and click Check Mail, I can receive the messages that should have been sent to her account - but I don't want this to happen!).

May 27, 2012

A freshly created account under 10.7.4. is a Admin account by default. The checkbox "Allow user to administer this computer" is grayed out. I end up with an Admin account and there is no way to convert this account into a Standard account. Facts: 10.7.4 - clean install on a current iMac i5 Freshly created account uses name of a deleted older account (my name)Repaired permissions several times (disk utility and "resetpassword utility" via terminal and safe boot)The older account had been relocated to a external disc for security reasons. There the access rights got corrupted so that I wanted to freshly create a new account and copy all files from a  backup. how to create a new account for me?

OS X :: Not Receive Commercial Email From Apple - Changed Email Address?

Oct 26, 2010

Through the years I've clicked this, over and over: "If you prefer not to receive commercial email from Apple, or if you've changed your email address, please click here." I'm trying to detect a pattern. I suspect that every time our family buys a new apple product we are hit with advertisements. I recently bought a new iPod Touch. I wonder if this is why the offer from apple to leave me alone fails, over and over.

OS X Technologies :: Can Receive Email But Not Send Email

Jul 2, 2012

I cannot send mail. This has been an occasional problem. I'd send and a pop-up would offer me choice: Cancel, ~Trash, or Save as Draft. I'd save and successfully send as a draft. The last few days I've had to the saved draft and send in  Eudora. Today I spent some time on this. At first it looked all right in Mail/Preferences/Accounts, name--then it persistently included (Offline), but Mail menu bar/ Window showed Take All Accounts Online dimmed and Take All Accounts Offline as the active option. At this time I could receive but not send mail. I have edited the smtp server list a number of times. No show of offline there. When I'm done (Offline) again pops up on theOutgoing Mail Server (SMTP). I deleted the account and recreated it and could not send. The (Offline) did not appear after the name. Early 2006 iMac, OS 10.6.8   The settings are OK, the same as in Eudora.

Applications :: Cannot Receive Instant Messages With MSN For Mac

Oct 26, 2009

I downloaded MSN for mac, months ago and everything was working fine. Now, I am having problems receiving instant messages from some of my msn contacts. It seems to happen with people with email addresses ending in [URL]. I send them a message and it says "so and so is typing a message" but nothing gets through, my chat window remains blank. I do not understand what is wrong as it is happening with people I used to speak with before and there were no problems, except they just cant contact me through msn now. They are not receiving any error messages and can get all my messages fine. I am using microsoft messenger for mac V7.0.2 and its on a Macbook Pro using OSX 10.5.6.

I do not have and do not use a .mac address, I use my [URL] address for everything

It wouldn't normally annoy me, but I have to use msn to speak with clients from overseas, and its already cost me project time and people also thought I was ignoring them. It has also botched up a date

Applications :: Won't Receive Messages From MobileMe To Outlook

Nov 22, 2009

I have a MobileMe account and would like to receive incoming mail on both my laptop's Mac Mail and my work's Windows-based desktop. I thought I had achieved this when I set up my outlook to receive messages from the mobileme server, but now my Mail inbox shows up as empty.

I don't know the in's and out's of email protocols so I was just hoping someone could give me some basic instructions on how to correct the situation so that both locations have access to the email messages on the mobileme server.

Applications :: Cannot Send / Receive Messages With Certain IChat Users

Apr 30, 2009

So I'm a new Mac user, on a macbook and I really like it, but all of a sudden yesterday, I can't receive or send messages to one of my buddies on iChat. On another computer it will work, but not with iChat. My buddy will send me a message, and the red "1" will come up on the icon on the dock, but when I click on it, nothing comes up. Even further, when I click on this specific buddie's name, I will not be able to send a message, because no chat box will appear. When I have my computer show all things that are open, nothing will show up from that buddy, so...when I spoke to my AppleCare help, they said that it wasn't their fault or an app issue, that it was the other computer or the AIM server that had the problem. Is there anything I can do to pull up my chats with my friend?

My iPhone 5c is receiving the same messages that I've already read on my Macbook Pro and I would like to stop connecting my phone number to the computer. Is there a way to fix this? I am using IOS 1.7.2 if this problem has anything to do with my phone and that has any relevance. 

Edit: I would not like to turn iMessage off on my phone, as I use it because a lot of the area I live in does not have service while we have wifi.

OS X Technologies :: Add Account Privileges To A Newly Created File?

Jun 11, 2012

I have multipe accounts on my Mac.  Two of them need to share certain files, but not with everyone else so I can't use the Shared folder.  When I create a new text file with AppleScript it has default ownership to the account that created it, but I need to give read & write privilages to it to the other account as well.  I can do this manually, but there are lots of files sometimes.  One trick I've found is to reset privilages from the next higher folder.  This saves time, but sometimes I forget.  Also when I do this it causes Time Machine to think all the files in that folder have been updated.  If the folder is large it may cause Time Machine to purge a old backup version.  What I'd like to do is find some AppleScript code I can use to add user "A" with read & write access to the permissions of a new file at the time my AppleScript creates that file.
