OS X Yosemite :: Turn Off Automatic Adding Of Email Address Into Contacts App

Dec 1, 2014

I am running Yosemite 10.10.1 and I use the built in Mail, Calendar and Contact applications.  What I would like to understand is if there is a way to disable the function that automatically adds email address into my contact.app without me specifically doing this function myself?

OS X :: Address Book Disappeared While Adding New Contacts

Jan 20, 2010

I was in the middle of adding new contacts and two very strange things happened.

1) After adding the second to last contact, I clicked on "All" to start dragging contacts into a new group and there were all these blank address cards in amongst my regular addresses - as if I had accidentally held down apple N and created a whole bunch of new cards inadvertently - but I had not done this - I was adding people one by one - all morning and it had been going just fine.

2) I still had a couple contacts to add so I thought, well I'll just fill in one of these blank cards - don't know where they came from, maybe I did something, so I better just use them - BIG MISTAKE - poof! Address Book is now gone - completely empty and in Mail, all my address history is also gone.

I clicked undo till I couldn't und anymore and although it said 'undoing new entry', undoing x, undoing y - nothing was really changing - everything was still gone.

Apple freak BF then fiddled and fiddled and after half and hour found the meta data files with all kinds of gobbledy gook numbers and letters in the prefix but can't get them back into Address Book to open...

Why has this happened - it felt like some sort of viral attack but I though macs don't get those - what other weird stuff is going on in there and can I prevent this weirdness from corrupting other programs - mail? calendar? Is that possible or silly? And of course most importantly can I get my addresses back?

OS X Yosemite :: (10.10.1) How To Remove Email Address Once Been Used

Dec 6, 2014

Once upon a time, I hit "reply all" to an email sent by a friend. This email had 97 addressees, and now they're in my Mail program. Only about eight of them are people I know. When I sent individual emails to crowdfund recently, I accidentally sent to some of these people, and my friend thought I'd hacked his account. I'd like to see them gone. 

In older versions of the OS, I was able to remove email addresses I no longer wanted; now, if I can, I don't know how. There are other addresses I'd like to remove, too.

MacBook Pro :: Why Does The Automatic Graphics Switching Turn Itself Back On

Jun 21, 2012

I have a late-2010 Macbook Pro 15" and have been having issues with gaming.  Specifically, the games will freeze the system requiring a reboot.  After reading further, I learned about the "Automatic Graphics Switching" mode under "Energy Saver" in the System Preferences screen.  Upon disabling this setting, and locking the preferences, the games are still freezing.   

I have not re-enabled this setting but when I check the settings again it is enabled.  Seemingly, the OS is changing the "Automatic Graphics Switching" on its own.

MobileMe :: Turn Off Or Disable An Automatic Reply To A Sender?

Jun 25, 2012

A long time ago, while in Mail I set up an auto reply to be sent to senders when I am away from my laptop.  Ever since, I have tried to find a way to disable it and CANNOT!Now that I'm receiving product order confirmations from Amazon vendors, my computer (my Mail application) send out an auto message saying the I'm away and will answer them as soon as I can.  Well, this feature has caused Amazon to freeze all emails between me and vendors because my auto message has exceeded their limits on email traffic between vender and buyer. How, PLEASE, can I stop, disable, get rid of, this auto message from ever going out again.  Friends have told me that this auto message of mine is annoying.  I detest it, but I cannot disable it from where I sit.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Email Address Requires Host Name In Address Field

May 5, 2012

I'm trying to setup mail on Lion Sever (7.3). The only way I can get it to accept incoming mail is to specify the whole FQDN of the server in the address.For example the domain name is example.com and I have a user set up called john. Sending mail to john@server.example.com works.

But sending mail to john@example.com (which is what I want) returns an error:
554 554 5.7.1 <john@example.com>: Relay access denied (state 13).

For internal DNS, I have:
example.com - primary zonemail.expample.com - alias server.example.comserver.example.com - [URL] - alias server.example.comMX record [URL]

I see references here to problems in mail on 7.3 but not this specific problem.

OS X :: Adding RAM - Computer Did Not Turn On

Jul 29, 2009

I have a 2.4 GHZ intel core duo 24" iMac. I just ordered some upgraded memory from a place called ' memory upgrade.pro'. I've tried the support line to no avail. The specs on what I ordered is this: 4GB memory 2x 2GB MB413G/A PC2-6400 DDR2 800MHz SO-DIMM. However, when I installed it - my computer did not turn on. The data written on the new memory stick itself reads: 2GB 2rX8 PC2-6400s-666-12-FO. I was hoping some a lot smarter than me can tell me if A. I got what I ordered or B. I ordered the wrong thing or C.

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.
