Software :: Mail Going Absolutely Nuts Sending Old Reminders

Jun 27, 2010

Today I had installed Netflix's Silverlight app to watch some movies on my 27" iMac running 10.5.8. Last night I had installed Developer tools. Today, after a restart my date/time was set to a date in 2000. On opening date/time it then showed the correct date. Later I started the computer up and Mail with iCal is sending out hundreds (up to 240 now) of old reminder emails (the system date is showing as today). I Force Quit Mail and it immediately starts up again. I got rid of my Mail and iCal prefs, restarted and immediately it starts up again. First the iCal reminder box pops up, then it launches Mail and then there it goes. Force Quit mail and it comes right back to life line in a horror movie. How can I kill this gosh darn thing. I am running a permission repair with Disk Utilities and it is finding many many permissions to fix. When it is done I will restart.

Applications :: Notes Won't Delete In Mail / Keep Reappearing In Reminders?

Jul 21, 2009

So I've recently migrated back to Mail after a long hiatus and set up my Gmail account with IMAP. I like Mail 3.0, but one bug could be a deal breaker for me:I don't like the notes feature and don't plan to use it. However, there are four mystery notes that keep reappearing in my Reminders. I don't remember creating them, and whenever I delete them they reappear about 5 minutes later. They are all blank and always have the same timestamp, too. I've tried junking them, I've tried deleting the Notes mailbox itself, even deleting it on google's end.

OS X Mavericks :: Unable To Allow Apple Mail To Create Reminders?

Jul 2, 2014

I just upgraded to MacOSx 10.9.3 (Mavericks) from Mountain Lion. Apple Mail can no longer create a reminder by dragging an email into the reminders icon on the bottom app bar. This was a great function. Was it discontinued in Mavericks, or is this a flaw that I can fix by changing a setting somehow?

Applications :: Sending Mail From Apple Mail To Outlook Express

Nov 2, 2010

If I send a msg from Apple Mail to i.e. Outlook Express. The same msg shows up with "clean" text formating. That will say, no formatting at all. See this screen: [URL:...] I have just gotten back to the Mac now from 10-11 months in hell with Windows-stuf, so I am really eager to get this fixed. In Apple Mail the same message looks this: [URL:...] I dont want to change to Entourage, so excellent if you can help me out with this.

OS X :: Mac Strips 'From' Field When Sending Mail?

Oct 28, 2010

I have a peculiar problem to which I have been unable to find a solution, despite searching far and wide on the Internet.

I access my company's microsoft exchange server email account through on my mac. In setting up this account, everything was detected easlity and I can send and receive mail without any issue, except one:

When I send an email, my name, in the From field, gets stripped as it gets sent. If I keep the mail as draft, I can see my email address in the From field, but when I finally send the email, that field gets stripped and is now blank.

So now, when I go back and look into my "sent" folder, the from field is blank.

This does not happen when I send email, via the same exchange account, from my iphone or ipad, only does this. This also does not happen when I send email through my yahoo or gmail account via

MacBook Air :: Menus Absolutely Opaque Because Of OS Revisions?

Jan 29, 2009

Anyone else noticed on their air that menus are completely opaque. I know more recent OS revisions toned down the translucency slightly, but this is absolutely totally opaque. It is also not affected by whether or not the menu *bar* is translucent. Nor does it seem to be just a 10.5.6 thing - a Macbook sitting next to it with the same OS revision still has noticeably translucent menus. Is this just me or is it general? I could find elsewhere was people either complaining about *less* translucent menus in particular OS updates, which this isn't, or people misunderstanding and thinking the OP meant the menu *bar*, which I don't.

OS X :: Absolutely Perplexed - Strong Airport Signal But No Internet

Nov 10, 2010

here's the run down: today I moved into a new place with two roommates. They have a wifi internet connection set up (modem + dlink router). I have been given all of the info regarding log ins and passwords. My Airport is telling me I have perfect reception and that I have a very strong signal. Yet, there is no internet (when I open Safari it tells me I am not connected to the internet). I've had this problem before, but it is usually resolved by restarting the modem or the router, by restarting my computer, etc. And here's the kicker: I am using, right now as I type, someone else's wifi connection... yet I accessed it with the same password. It's a very basic password (12345). I thought maybe this was our unit's connection, but I actually unplugged the modem and continued to use the internet with this connection. The problem is that this connection is very slow and rather useless. I'm actually able to use 3-4 of these with the same password (12345). One of them is called 'dlink,' the name of our router. But our connection is supposedly under 'Nicks,' my roommate's name).

OS X :: Use Mac Mail For Sending Only

May 13, 2010

Is there a way to set up e-mail accounts in my Mac mail that allow me to "send only" from them? For example, I have a couple e-mail accounts that I only use for commercial / e-commerce communication (airline tickets, eBay transactions, etc), but am otherwise not interested in setting up as an inbox because they simply flood with spam. Is there a way to set up Mail so that I can choose to send a message as (rather than; WITHOUT adding an inbox for this account?

MacBook Pro :: Sending Via Mail App

Apr 10, 2012

I'm using the standard Mail app on my Macbook Pro with Lion OS X.  I have 3 Hotmail accounts and at one point had all of them hooked up to the Mail app and receiving e-mails fine.The problem I've had is when trying to send an e-mail or reply to one via the Mail app. Even though I have 3 accounts and have got the 'Send messages from account of selected mailbox' selected in Preferences > Composing, it always used to send from only one of the 3. If I recall correctly it was the second account I had added that it always sent from.Recently I'd decided to try and sort this. I like to use one account for business e-mails and the other 2 for personal so when I recieve a business e-mail I really don't want it replied to from one of my personal e-mails. The simplest idea I had was to remove the 2 personal accounts (under Preferences > Accounts) and use the app purely for my business e-mails. However after removing them I now don't receive any e-mails for those accounts, but after testing a bit with a friend all e-mails are still being sent from an account no longer registered on the app.How can I sort this so I only have 1 account that I can send and recieve from??

MacBook Air :: Yay For Safari Adblock - Nuts And Suck Up

May 3, 2009

I have noticed from time to time Safari would go nuts and suck up 80-90% of the CPU and send the temps up and crank up the fan. I would then have to go on a witch hunt through the numerous tabs I had open and try and find the ad banner that's going nuts and close it (or just kill Safari). I started poking around and found [URL]

Software :: Sending Attachments In .Mail?

Mar 20, 2009

I am running 10.4.11 with the mail program that is installed which is 2.1.3.

My daughter in college has a MacBook Pro Intel running 10.5.x and uses the college mail program (site).

Every attachment that I send her that as a jpg, she says downloads to her desk top as a .acs ( I believe) which she can't open to view. If she goes to a windows computer with the same college e-mail site she can view them.

Question: what can be done to send/receive these so they can be viewed as jps's on her computer? Would send them as windows friendly attachments help?

I'm guessing that the e-mail site is probably set up for more windows friendly than Mac friendly.

OS X Mavericks :: (10.9.5) Mail Not Sending Attachments

Dec 3, 2014

Using Apple Mail on OS X 10.9.  

My workplace is an Apple environment. Shortly after some of the iMacs were upgraded to 10.9 we've had some trouble with Mail. The main issue is Mail is not sending the attached image or file. On one of the iMacs that sends a lot of email with attachments, I removed the email account and added it back. After doing this this account is able to send attachments (how long this fix will last I don't know), however, a particular email we tried to send did not send the attached files.  

After hearing about this issue I sent several test emails from this iMac and had mixed results. Sending just the attachments would work. Sending the attachments and text would only send the text. I have tried dragging the images from the Desktop into the message. I have used the attachment button and made sure Windows Friendly Attachments was checked. 

I hand-typed a paragraph of the original email and sent it with the attachments and that email worked. I think it could be something with copy and pasting the text or some kind of formatting in the text. I copied the original message and pasted it in both Text Edit and Microsoft Word (and used Edit>Clear Formatting) and from there into a new Mail Message, attached the two files and it didn't send again. 

One attachment is a .jpg another is a .pdf. The total size of both is 104kb (well within our sending limit). The body of the message is 3-4 paragraphs, maybe 100-200 words total. I don't think it is a size issue.  

This could possibly be two issues, or just one: Mail just not sending attachments (even though it seems to have been corrected after removing the email account and adding it back), an issue with formatting that is somehow keeping Mail from sending attachments, or a mixture of both. 

On a side note, I added the same email account to another computer using 10.7.5 and added the correct imap and smtp info and the same issues and results happen with this specific email. (Other than this one email issue in 10.7.5 the only complaints about emails not sending attachments is coming from 10.9 users) 

I'm at a loss right now of what to try next. Since some of the iMacs have upgraded to 10.9, Apple Mail has been giving us some issues.

PowerPC :: Would I Be Nuts To Switch From A Newer Desktop PC To My Old IBook G4

Oct 27, 2007

I had bought an iBook G4 back in July of 2005 and that ended up being my main machine for about a year. I had to switch back to Windows since so much software that I needed only ran on Windows and it just made more sense. Just this past February I replaced that machine since it was having some serious issues and wasn't worth the time or money to troubleshoot. The machine I have now has an Athlon64 x2 4200+, 1GB RAM, a 320GB hard disk, the standard DVD writer, and I installed a GeForce 7600GT 256MB video card in it. The iBook has a 1.2GHz G4, 1.25GB RAM, a 60GB hard disk, and a combo drive. I have a 160GB external hard disk and a DVD writer to hook up to it.

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

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?

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 :: Internet Go Slow When Uploading Something Or Sending An E-mail?

Oct 28, 2009

Alright, I'm wondering what makes my internet go slow when my dad is uploading something or sending an e-mail.According to I have a download speed of 2.1MB/s and upload of 0.03MB/s (megabytes not megabits).I just did a test while dad was uploading and got very similar results if not the same, except it said my ping was 4302 ms, compared to 26 ms I got from re-running the test after the upload was finished. I'm pretty sure the server was the same, I think I would have noticed if it wasn't.Does anyone know why it goes slow, I don't really understand it, although I imagine it has something to do with the high ping but I don't understand why or how it effects it.
