MacBook Pro :: Sending Mail With Google Account - Application Specific Password Required

Aug 24, 2014

I have problems sending mail to people (not everybody) since Google obliged me to change my password on my Google account (attempt breaking-in apparently).

It took me a long time to re-configure everything, I choose the "double" protection from Google (with sms), and my Mac asked me this morning to give several times my Apple ID password, for iMessage, Face Time, etc...)

Now it's not possible to send a mail to my office. It is when I send it via website of Google, NOT when I use "Mail" on my Mac.

This is the message (partly in dutch) :  Application-specific password required. Learn more at [URL] .....

OS X :: Gmail Application - Mail Sending Out As Other Account

Nov 6, 2010

Well I've noticed lately when sending out emails, I select one of my accounts that I use online(specifically craigslist) but when I get a reply, they are going to another inbox from my other(private) account. I don't want this account exposed, especially to the likes of craigslist as that's a big time spam magnet and for potential scammers. What's going on with the Mail application? I checked my settings and all my account information is correct. This has just started happening recently so it must have been an update or something? I checked my "sent" folder and it's showing as the mail has gone out through the right email account but I got a response showing it was sent to my private account.

OS X :: Want To Set Up An Account In Apple Mail That Only Is Used For Sending Out Messages?

Sep 22, 2009

I want to set up an account in Apple Mail that only is used for sending out messages (SMTP). The mailbox exists, but I want it POP-ed by another method.I figured out how to suppress fetching email automatically (Preferences > Accounts > Advanced), but that still fetches whenever I click the "Get Mail" button.Can I configure a mailbox that's simply unable to check mail, but can send it?

Can other people using Gmail through their Mac desktop mail tell me if its sending? It appears I can receive but I cannot send. Maybe I did something wrong? Although I haven't touched the settings.

Applications :: Mail App Always Ask For Sending Account Address?

Aug 10, 2010

I'm having this problem for a while now and did not find any topics about it on the net. If it is handled some other place already, the link, or way to find it would be nice.

I'm using with 5 different accounts at work. Different accounts are supposed to be for different groups of receivers. When sending mails I unfortunately tend forget to check if the right sending address (account) is chosen. Mail automatically chooses the one from which the last mail was send. And so it ends up that people receive mails from the wrong address and are getting confused by that.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mac Mail Not Sending From Correct Account

Apr 9, 2012

I constantly use Mail to send and receive emails on my MacBook.On it I have three email 'accounts' - my address (for formal emails to work, banks etc.), my "junk" address (for spam, gaming etc.) and my "home" address (for personal emails and everything else).When typing an email, if I choose to send it from a different account than the one I originally selected, I can just change it in the 'From' pop-down menu (under the 'To', 'Cc', 'Bcc' and 'Subject' fields).Recently though, for some reason when I want to send an email from my "home" address, it sends it from my "junk"one instead, even if I am sending it 'From' my "home" address.It still has my "home" address' signature, and not every time it does send from my "junk" one instead - rather it seems to send from both as it feels up to.This bothers me quite a bit, especially when I send an important email using my "home" address but it sends from my "junk" - both confusing and annoying me and the recipients.This only just started happening to me this past week.

Applications :: Mac Mail Sending Extra Emails From Gmail Account?

Mar 6, 2010

When I send 1 email to 1 recipient from my gmail account on mac mail, the mail activity monitor on the bottom left indicates that I am sending 2, 3 or as many as 5 emails. It takes a long time to send when this happens. It only happens when I send from the gmail account and never from my other accounts. I have no "extra" mail in my sent folder. Is someone else sending email from my computer?

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).

Software :: Step By Step Guide Required For Converting POP Gmail Account To IMAP, With Mail?

Jul 16, 2008

I've been using Apple Mail with POP Gmail for a few years now with problems. Generally I ignore the Gmail side of things and only ever access through Mail at home, and also use a Blackberry to send and receive emails.

At the moment Gmail pushes mail to my Blackberry and also holds it in the Inbox at Gmail until my Apple Mail app on my iMac downloads it, whereupon it's all moved to All at Gmail. This works fine, but is a problem when I use Mail on my Powerbook - once it downloads the new mail, Gmail moves it to All mail and when I get home and fire up my iMac's Mail, those emails won't appear there. Annoying. So, I need to go IMAP.

My problem is that as I have never bothered with tagging or sorting things on the Gmail side of things, and have done all my ordering through Apple Mail with custom folders and rules, I get the impression all that work goes out the window and I have to start over in terms of organising again, and that in fact any rules I want to set that I want to be duplicated across devices have to be done on the Gmail webpage. Is there any way whatsoever of somehow exporting my Apple Mail rules over to Gmail so that when I change to IMAP it somehow keeps things as they are as best as possible?

OS X :: Required Software Regarding Google Chrome And Firefox

Dec 15, 2010

I read Chrome is supposed to be basic and less resource hungry so I downloaded it and installed it. It is very fast but I have two issues with it. The first is how it does not warn you if you are going to close multiple tabs (I've heard the PC version just added the feature a week ago but who knows?). The bigger issue is that Chrome is ungodly resource hungry or I just do not know how to read a shows at any given moment that at least 6 Google Chrome processes are running and they take up substantial memory. Below is a pic of the activity monitor (there are 4 more Google processes lower down which I couldnt photo).

OS X :: MacBook Not Connecting To WiFi - Password Required

Mar 13, 2010

Let me preemptively state that I know very little about computers. This problem is most likely easy to fix, but I wouldn't know where to start. We have wireless internet here in my house, and my MacBook will not connect to it. It's a Netgear router, and my Mac tells me I need a password to connect to it. We don't have a password set on our router. So, every time it tries to connect, it says that an error occurred. How do I get rid of this password thing? I just want to use the WiFi!

OS X :: Mail Rejecting Password For Gmail Account

Jul 30, 2010

All of a sudden, Mail has begun rejecting my password for my Gmail Account. Yesterday the password was fine and had been fine for about 10 or 11 months, until tonight. This is the box I see when I try to get mail: Mail is rejecting every single password that I use. I'm 100% positive that I'm entering the correct password. Is it possible that Gmail is down or doing maintenance which is causing this problem?

ICloud :: Forgot Password For Account In Apple Mail?

Mar 31, 2012

I don't know why but a recently I've been asked to enter my icloud password related to my iCloud e-Mail address. stupidly, I've forgot what my password is. is there a chance to reset it somehow? 

To explain the situation a bit better and what I've tried already, here a short discription of the situation: 

- I do have a appleID that is called the related password is appleID_Password1.

with this combination I also conduct my purchases in iTunes and the AppStore. But to rule this possibility already out: It doesn't let me access my iCloud eMail account in Apple Mail. Funny enough, though, when visiting this is the combination with which I log onto iCloud incl it's mail service within the web browser. 

- the iCloud eMail address for whose password I am looking is called something like I have implemented it into my Apple Mail program running on Mac OS X Lion. Since setting up the account i've never ever been asked to enter my password. But now, out of a sudden, I was. And, of course, I couldn't remember it anymore. Hence, I don't receive any eMails sent to anymore on my mac. 

Can somebody tell me how to fix it, if it is not the password for my appleID??

ICloud :: Account In Mail Starts Asking Password Every Couple Of Minutes

Mar 12, 2012

The past couple of days, for no apparent reason, my iCloud mail account starts acting strangely. Everytime Mail tries to connect to a server called "" and pops up the message that my password is rejected for my user name. This started happening without me doing anything to my settings. Strangely enough, on my iPhone and my newly acquired iPad2 this issue does not appear. Has something changed on the servers ?
