Software :: Spyware Alert Pop - Up (Firefox Is Attempting To Connect To Server)

It started yesterday,and I am worried my computer has been hacked. For some background it is a 20" iMac running OSX 10.4. What is happening is when we start up Safari, mail, Firefox,etc we get a Network spyware alert box that pops up, and says the following for example when starting firefox: Firefox is attempting to connect to a server with the internet address numbers due to not being sure if these should be kept secret).Then it says [URL] on port 80. Fire fox is not authorized to make this connection. Do you want to allow the connection,or block it? Program location:/applications/ It then has radio buttons with the following options:

O Apply until quits
O Apply today
O Apply once
O Apply always

On the right of those radio buttons are two boxes withthe following options:

Apply to all ports
Apply to all internet addresses

I am worried we may have been hacked,but I have no idea. I click on block when I get these pop-ups,and sometimes it will allow the program to work just fine,and sometimes not. Have we been hacked? What can I do to fix this? We do have a Allume netblockade program,but it has been on the computer for years,and only now has this problem come up.

MacBook Aluminum :: Pop Up Message - Bluetooth Device Attempting To Pair
While using my 13" Aluminum MacBook, I keep getting a pop-up message stating that a bluetooth device is attempting to pair with my computer, and is prompting for a password. The only bluetooth device that I use is a LogiTech wireless mouse, which I was not using when this occurred.

OS X Leopard :: Wont Connect To Gmail Account / Saying POP Server Rejected Password
I began to have some problems with my Gmail account that I have never had before. Oftentimes when I open Mail, a box pops up saying the POP server is rejecting the password to my Gmail account and asks me to enter it. I am entering the correct password (I am still able to log on through the Gmail website), but it keeps getting rejected. I checked my Keychain, and there are no errors with the passwords I have there. I have tried deleting my Gmail account from the Mail app and then adding it again. The incredibly confusing part is that about half the times it works without a hitch, and my second email account I have set up on Mail isn't having any problems at all. Incidentally, I am also having problems with the Mail application on my Ipod Touch. I'm not getting any messages that my password is being rejected, but it hasn't updated the emails since early last week even when connected to the Internet.

IMac PPC :: Email Pop-up Box Keeps Coming Up The POP Server "" Rejecting Password?
I am having trouble with our email account. A pop-up box keeps coming up: the POP server "" rejected the password for user I've reset the password and it's still not working. SBC/ATT says it's an Apple issue, not their issue... that Apple mail is not recognizing the account or something like that. I've also tried adjusting to "recieve mail manually" instead of automatically (on all of our apple products) - still not working. Continual pop-up box rejecting password, no mail coming in to that account either.

OS X Leopard :: Cannot Connect To Local Server In Safari And Firefox
I am having a strange problem: I have Web sharing enabled, I can ping the name set for my local server in the Sharing panel (which is il-mostruo.local), however, if I try to connect to it using Safari or FireFox, I get the error message: Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at il-mostruo.local. I can also change the name to whatever I want, always the same picture: ping works, http connection doesn't. This has been functioning until very recently, as a matter of fact, I have been using web sharing for the better part of 5 years that way.

The only thing that happened between the functioning and not functioning part is that I connected to a WLAN via router and OSX kept complaining that my local server name was already in use on the network and counted up the names (i.e. il-mostruo-2.local, il-mostruo-3.local), but even those "new" names still worked as the name for the local server in http. However, at one point in this WLAN setup, the http access ceased to work. Restart would most likely fix but so far, I have been out of luck; restarted about a bazillion times for good measure, and still no http access.

Applications :: Little Snitch - Restore Alert Panel Pop Ups?
One of the features I mostly like about Little Snitch is the Alert Panel pop ups, which give me full control of what type of access is given to which applications. Here is the alert panel: I found that some users dislike it, and even some discussions were started on how to get rid of it. That's not my case today. My Little Snitch was working perfectly until I decided to upgrade my Macbook HD to a higher storage. I went to an authorized Mac store, which replaced the new HD into place and advised me to go back home and boot the MacBook with the installation disk pressing C.

Then, after installation, I chose to restore my files from the last Time Machine backup. However, after doing this it seemed that many applications including Little Snitch started to operate differently... as if I would be running them for the first time. So in addition to the automatic Time Machine restore, I went to a manual restore of applications and library items. When I tried to overwrite the files of Little Snitch on the Library folder, I was asked my Administrator password. Then after typing it, I received the message that I did not have sufficient administrator preferences................

OS X Leopard :: Spinning Beach Ball When Attempting To Connect To WD Backup?
I've been backing up using TM and a MyBookWorldEdition(MBWE) NAS drive for several months. Something has happened... I can i) no longer connect to WD-Backup via finder as a Registered User(WD_Backup/pwd backup) and 2) when I tell TM to use WD-Backup as the backup drive I get the spinning beach ball forever.

Everything else works perfectly I can access MBWE from finder via afp with no issues. Itunes accesses MBWE with no issues. It is just WD_Backup that is not working properly. Guessing it is a corrupted file but not sure how to access and delete. Disk utility does not recognize MBWE so can't do a Repair Permissions either. Any ideas on how I can resolve?

Is there any add-on you all use that may help? I know some things are going to get through no matter what. So I just thought I'd see what others experiences' were.

Software :: Firefox And Password Manager Pop Up For New Site
Love this feature (because I'm all about convenience). But the first time I logged on to a specific new site, password manager popped up asking if I wanted it to remember my log on information. Instead of hitting "remember", I accidentally hit "never remember". It's driving me nuts because its the one site I visit every day, and can't figure out how to un-do it other than re-register under a new name, which would be too much of a hassle since it's my stock brokerage site.

Just wondering if the Mac Mini Server with Snow Leopard Server could manage the following:

OS X Leopard :: Recurring Exclamation Alert About IMAP Server For AOL?
In Apple's mail I have both my gmail account and aol account. Although Mail does successfully retrieve my AOL messages, I get a recurring exclamation alert (inside the triangle symbol). When I click on it, it say that the IMAP server for AOL wishes to alert you to the following: 1 (1032) that mail is not currently available.

I've checked my preferences and the incoming server is listed as [URL] and that seems to be correct.

Have any other AOL users with MAIL been getting this same recurring alert. Some times when it refreshes the exclamation alert will go away and at other times it will appear. But it seems that all my incoming mail is being retrieved.

OS X Leopard :: Mail On POP Server But Not On Mac
When I hit send/receive, I don't get any new mail. The only mail I see is from May 13-14. I deleted & re-created my mailbox twice, no good. When I click on the POP mail and select "get account info" I see all my mail there (up to today). For some reason, my mac is not pulling or displaying mail that is on the server. I made sure my passwords were fine and even checked mail directly on the Cox server. No problems with the account.

OS X Leopard :: Email Not Moving From POP Server To Inbox
Since June 6th all incoming E-mails do not show up in "in box". When I hit "get mail" it indicates the number of messages coming in (ie. 88 messages) but amount of data as 0Kb. After searching I have found in the messages on the POP server in the Get Account Info box but they will not download in to the inbox. I'm sure it's something simple but I can't figure out how to get them to move to the inbox like they were before.

Snow Leopard :: Downloading Emails From POP Server?
I have configured my yahoo plus email account via POP with my Mac Mail and all settings seem correct with no errors. It will then start downloading my emails off the server and into my Mail.The problem is when it reaches 1326 messages inbox, it will simply stop downloading them leaving 12325 messages on the server un-downloaded. Then when it tries to download these messages in the 'Mail Activity' it will display 'Incoming Messages: 12325' with a fully downloaded bar which will flash up the disappear without any action being performed.If I click on 'Get Account Info' it says 'Checking Sizes' and all the messages will appear which are to be downloaded but it won't.

I have tried (all failed):

Triple checking account details
Removing and re-adding account
Marking all as read as I go along
Moving the downloaded emails to a separate mail box

OS X :: The Hotmail POP Server Pop3 Rejected The Password?
Every few minutes, my Mail rejects my Hotmail password and says "The Hotmail POP serverrejected the password for user ______". I looked it up on google and apparently hotmail may be set up to reject passwords or deny POP access if the polling rate is too fast... I'm not sure what's going on. I click "remember password in keychain" every time but it pops up every hour at least.

OS X Server :: Unable To Conncet IMAP/POP On Mac 10.5.4
I just installed Mac OS X Server 10.5.4. I am trying to enable the Mail Service/Server. It shows the the SMTP Incoming and Outgoing is enabled in the Server Admin, but for IMAP and POP, they are not running/enabled.

I have went through and reconfigured it to enable IMAP and POP, but the services will not start.

The server can receive Mail just fine.

If I go to the webmail by typing in [URL] and try to log in, I get the following error message.

Intel Mac :: Outgoing Mail On POP Server
I have experienced problems with a POP outgoing server for some time on both my MacBook and IMac - incoming is OK. I have contacted the service provider and they say that all codes and log-in details are correct and that they can send from Webmail server ( and so can I). I can also use the outgoing server on my iPhone so it suggests that something is wrong in the settings on the iMac and MacBook - but they are correct and the same as the iPhone.I notice that this server shows 'offline' in th setting box - is this a clue?. I have not found anyway of making this server go on-line.

OS X :: Cannot Connect To FTP - No Login To Websites From Firefox
One day I could log in to any site using firefox, the next I couldn't log into anything. I type the password and username, when I click on "log in" nothing happens. It says "done" at the bottom left, but nothing has happened. Safari works fine. I would just get by, however after creating a website in IWeb I discovered anything FTP related will not work.

I have tried lots of different FTP clients such as (Transmit, cyber duck, firezilla, cross ftp) but nothing works. The passwords etc are all correct as they work on my mac at work. The only change I've made is installing little snitch, however nothing is restricted related with anything that would affect the current problem. I have tried usual suspects such as deleting cookie, erasing private data etc.

OS X Leopard :: Mail Pop Up - Enter Password On SMTP Server?
I was using my friends WiFi recently, and I think that did something to my mail server, and now, when I first open mail and try to send a message, a window of this pops up: Please enter the password for user "(my name)" on SMTP server "smtp.(my server)". (the things in ( )'s are just personal info, so i'm just not showing that part, it usually says my name and my server in those parentheses, if you couldn't tell.) Then I click Cancel and go to the outbox and try sending again, and it works. I've tried typing in my password, but I'm not sure if it's right or not, but it says it's not. It doesn't seem to require my password if I can just click cancel. How can I get rid of this message popping up?

Server V10.5 Leopard :: OS X - POP And IMAP Mail Settings On G4
I am trying to get mail service to run on OSX 10.5 Server installed on a G4 machine. Using Server Admin, under Mail>Settings it asks for Domain name (local Internet domain name) and Host name (Internet host name of this mail system). I am unsure exactly what they want. To me, Domain name would be (registered for years). Host name would be the name of the machine - taovaya. However, I've tried this and many other combination with no joy. When restarting mail, POP and IMAP say they are starting up, but eventually return to "stopped" state. Everything else in the Mail Overview tab starts up and says "running" as it should. (I do have Mailing Lists stopped; and Mail Clustering Off).

Applications :: Multiple Mail Accounts With Same Outgoing POP Server
I'm new mac fan who has bought a macbook pro and thrown BG & MS out of my life, almost. The transition has been a little tough. I am finding some Mac things so easy. And other so hard. Apple Mail is giving me fits. In outlook express, I have 3 email accounts for various levels of privacy. All using verizon's outgoing mail server to send email. So, same username, pw & settings & outgoing Pop are the same on all 3 accounts. No problem in Outlook Express.

Mail says you cannot have the same username & pw& pop in 2 separate accounts whether it is outgoing or incoming pops/servers. On 2 accounts I have started using their own pop to send mail out. I still cannot get 1 account to email out. For 2 accounts I use onlymyemail to filter spam and then I download it from their incoming pop. So, these 2 accounts must have the same username and password and pop to download the filtered email. It seems like this whole thing is reversed. This should be a MS problem, and Mail should allow the same usname & pw on all accounts.
