Applications :: Mail Growl, Imap And Spam?

Aug 29, 2008

I just switched my settings in Mail so that I'm now checking my Gmail accounts using IMAP rather than POP. This has gone smoothly save for one thing: Growl now notifies me of every piece of Spam that comes into the Spam folder on the server. Is there any way to adjust this?

Likewise, Growl also notifies me about anything new message on the server, whether it's an e-mail I have sent (added to the server-side Sent Messages folder) and also takes to notifiying me two, three, or even more times for a single message (because it comes into the All Mail folder on the server and then into my client-side mailbox in Mail)

Applications :: Why Doesn't Growl Mail Work ALL The Time

Jul 10, 2010

I have 10.6.4 with the latest version of Mail and GrowlMail. Sometimes, it decides to show me the notifications and sometimes it doesn't.

I've already checked to see if I enabled the settings correctly in Syst.Pre/Growl and Mail preference as well.

Applications :: Mail From Gmail / Spam In Sent Mail?

Feb 28, 2010

Don't know if this was addressed yet, but "Spam" mail from my gmail (spam folder - duh!) keeps popping up in my "Sent Mail" folder in Mac mail. I found this post online, but am not tech savvy enough to know what they're talking about.


Okay. I know what's going on there. You are correct this is spam that does not originate from you. The issue is that it is not your gmail address that is being forged, but your other address that forwards to gmail. You have also configured your forwarding server as a valid mail originator for your address in SPF. So the mail looks completely legitimate to gmail: it arrives at gmail from a server that you have configured as a valid server to send from your email address, therefore gmail thinks it really is from your email address.

If you control your own domain and you use gmail's smtp server for outgoing mail, you should remove the SPF entry that marks the forwarding server (URL) as a valid originator for your domain. Then gmail will be able to figure out that this is forged. This will likely cause gmail to put this stuff properly in Spam and to avoid showing you the images.(URL)

I'm on Leopard's and I have two POP accounts and an IMAP account. I want to know how to eliminate the split between the IMAP server's email and the "On my mac" email.

Applications :: To Do On IMAP?

Nov 2, 2009

I'm running 4.1 on a 10.6.1 MBP. I've got it pointing to an IMAP server. All is well.

I try to point my 3.6 on a 10.5.8 G5 PM at the same server and it can't find the To Do items. In fact it's doing something very odd.

It finds the Notes just fine but what's it doing with the To Dos?

Applications :: Using Mail And Gmail IMAP?

Sep 29, 2010

I had a question. Is there a way to use Gmail's IMAP with Apple Mail and configure it so that when the message is deleted on Gmail, It is not deleted in Apple Mail. I have wanted to convert to IMAP for a while but was always concerned with the possibility of Gmail servers accidentally deleting all of my emails and then would in turn delete all of them on my computer and I would have no backup copies of my emails anymore. I like to archive my emails but I like the performance of receiving emails thru IMAP over POP.

Applications :: Changing From POP To IMAP Mail?

Mar 30, 2009

It seems I have to change from using POP to IMAP but I'm not quite sure how.

I use on my macbook. I have about 4 different email accounts, (2 for different employers, 1 for freelance work, and 1 personal) plus I'm in a couple of high traffic newsgroups.

All gets downloaded to via POP access.

The newsgroup and junk emails get filtered out into their respective folders.

Other mail is filtered into other folders. Some gets to my inbox.

I want the non-newsgroup / junk mail to auto-sync with my iphone.

That means :

Appearing in the same folder in my iPhone and on my laptop

Reading mail on one device will mark it as read on the other.

Email sent from one device will appear in the sent folder on the other.

So it seems I need to change from POP to iMAP, but I'm not quite sure how to set it all up to deal with my 4 accounts and various folders. In I have about 30 rules for filtering.

Do i need 4 different IMAP accounts?

Applications :: Understanding Apple's Mail And IMAP?

Dec 22, 2010

I've always struggled with Mail. I blame my confusion from going from Pop to IMAP. POP was simpler. Mail sat on server. When you used a POP connection mail moved from server to your computer. Imap is harder. Anyone have a good description (or link) on how imap works?

Here are my questions:
1. If you don't have a .mac account is there an easy way to keep Apple's Mail synched up on two machines? Is it as easy as keeping your mail folders (library) and apple mail plist file (preferences) synched up using a synch program?

2. When you open mail, with imap accounts it automatically goes to your account servers and seems to synch up the online version to what is on your computer. Launch Mail and in the activity window all sorts of things happen such as "synchronizing with server". This is before you tell Mail to "get mail". I'm wondering if the "get mail" is what puts a copy of emails on your computer or does just opening Mail with imap accounts do this?

3. If I had my choice, and mostly I do just use Google Mail online. However I want to have electronic copies of my emails for the day that the online cloud evaporates. Any easy way to accomplish this? I know there is something called G-Mail backup, but I wonder about it's functionality if I ever really had to rely on it. As of right now I'm using Mail for this purpose. Maybe Mail is the easiest way?

Applications :: How To Sent Items In GMail And Mail/IMAP

Jul 2, 2008

but I end up with sent items in my label/folders at least when I reply. So, for example, if I label an email "important" it ends up in an "important" folder. But if I reply, then the sent item also shows up in that folder within Mail. I know that this results from Gmail's use of labels rather than folders. It's not a problem in the Gmail/webmail interface because of the threaded display. But what I'd like to do is set a filter within gmail that basically strips any sent mail of all other labels so that when working within Mail I don't get the sent items showing up in the inbox or labels/folders.

I searched the Mail help menu and it says that you can control which folders you can subscribe to by going into the "Get Account Info..." menu. However, when I got to the "Subscriptions" tab, none of the folders load. It's just an empty list.

I have my Apple Mail configured for use with my Gmail IMAP account but I have a problem. From the Apple Mail app, I can not see messages that were sent while in the web version of Gmail. To me, if I have it configured via IMAP, anything I do on my phone, I should see on my mac. Anything I do on my mac, I should see anywhere from the web app. Am I doing something wrong? Can YOU see messages you sent through the web portal, on your Apple Mail app?

Applications :: Mail Client Won't Do IMAP For Gmail Or MobileMe

I'm a lurker around here who's normally able to find the answers I need on the forum, but this one keeps stumping me and whatever search terms I'm using hasn't helped.

So I moved my email account from a GoDaddy hosted account to a Google Apps email account. After doing so, I added the mail account to my iPad and my iPhone, but when I tried to add it to my Mail Client, it kept telling me it couldn't connect to, despite my ability to ping it.

I tried to setup my mobileme account to see if it was isolated, but mobileme, is having the exact same problem.

Applications :: How To Configure Hotmail With Imap Settings In Mail 4.2

Jun 12, 2010

just got a macbook pro and wanted to configure my hotmail accounts to be read in mail 4.2 in such a way any change I did in the webmail could be seen in mail and viceversa. When configuring it automatically (letting mail figure out all my account details) that didn�t happen; I was told that I need to set the account type to Imap for this sync to happen.

When I configure a new account in Mail 4.2 the account type (pop) appears automatically, and there�s no chance I can change it, not even afterwards when going to the account menu.
