IMac (Intel) :: Mail Keeps Deleting New Email Accounts?

Jun 3, 2014

I am working in an office that has numerous old email accounts on the computer from past temp employees that we keep so that I can reference their communications.   Since updating to Mavericks, when I add or delete accounts from Mail, the changes are restored when I restart mail or reboot the computer.  How do I permenently delete or add a new account.  I have done this serveral times on other computers, but this one isn't responding as it should.  It was running Snow Leopard before the upgrade.

OS X :: Different Contact Email Default When Using Different Mail Accounts

Feb 16, 2009

I've come across a strange problem that I'm not sure if Mac Mail will be able to deal with natively. Basically, I have several contacts in my address book that have 2 addresses; work and home. I also have 2 mail accounts set up; my work account and my home account. I've run into a few problems at work when I'm sending email to colleagues as it was auto-selecting their personal addresses when I typed in their names. I managed to fix that but now when I send mail from my personal account, the auto-select chooses their work email first so I have to scroll down to choose their personal account.

Is there a way of getting mail to understand that if I'm sending mail from my personal account, then "home" addresses should show up first in auto-complete but if I'm sending from my work account, then "work" addresses should show up first? I understand this is probably a bit of a long shot without a third party tool but thought it best to ask!

Applications :: Three Email Accounts - Getting Organized In Mail

Apr 15, 2009

I've only really used Mail in a very basic way - for reading email from three email accounts, one work, two Gmail. I've never attempted to organize things in any way. However, I want to clean things up a bit now. I'm getting a lot of work emails - I'm a journalist - and I want to organise them based on which article they relate to. I presumed the easiest way to do this would be to create a folder (a 'Mailbox' I take it, Mailbox > New Mailbox) and drag the relevant emails to the corresponding folder. However, when I do this the emails no longer appear in my overall Inbox, so when I search the Inbox, they don't appear. I've had a quick look around the Preferences, but can't see a simply option for changing this. Am I going about this the right way organising using Mailboxes? Or is there a better way perhaps?

OS X Yosemite :: Apple Mail And Email Accounts Do Not Open?

Dec 7, 2014

I have recently found the problem that I open the Apple Mail app and nothing is functional. When I try to edit account settings it doesn't let me access those. I want to reinstall mail app or at least update its settings. I read in some blog that yosemite "guesses" and changes your prefered account settings so I wonder if that is the cause after I backed up my emails recently I had loads of messages asking for my passwords, which never happened in Mavericks.

OS X V10.4 :: Reinstall Mail And Recreate Email Accounts Without Losing Messages?

Feb 23, 2012

We're using Mail 2.1.3 on a Mac Mini (OS 10.4.11), and having problems with email accounts misbehaving in Mail.We've been checking 6 accounts (2 gmail, 1 yahoo, 3 from US Cable). Now I've tried to add 2 new gmail accounts (we're losing the USCable accounts in a few days), and started having problems. Even though the settings in both new gmail accounts are correct, they will not send email via the server, and give me the message:

"Cannot send message using the server" and it asks me to send the message using a different server.

Additionally, as I've been trying to troubleshoot this, my 2 formerly working gmail accounts have both started not working. Connection Doctor says the login for one failed, and the smtp for the other "could not connect". Though Connection Doctor says that connection and login to server succeeded for the 2 new gmail accounts, it does not even list the smtp attempts for the new accounts. I've tried deleting and recreating the new email accounts within this main user's version of Mail several times, no success.

All the email accounts are using the POP protocol, and we don't want to change to IMAP (we have multiple users checking the same accounts from different devices). I've verified the settings being correct 2 ways: Setting them up on a different machine (my MacBook running Mail 3.6, OS X 10.5.8) and on the same machine via a newly-made user on the Mac Mini. Both ways can send and receive mail just fine from these new email accounts.

I think something's hopelessly corrupted, and that I need to somehow reinstall the Mail program, or at least get rid of all the accounts and preferences or whatever needs to be deleted, and recreate all the email accounts again. How can I do this, without losing our many messages that we have filed in a number of folders?

Intel Mac :: Read 2 ICloud Email Accounts But Not Have Them Merged

May 30, 2012

I have an icloud account which I use for personal use. We recently bought an ipad for the family and set up an icloud to be used for family viewing. I added to my mac the new account (lets call it it '[url]...') but it seems to be moving all the [url]... mail into my personal one on my mac. Since this is suppose to be family, I was hoping to have the email stay with the [url]... so both my husband I could monitor it. However, since my mac is merging it, it is deleted from ipad we share.

Is there anyone to set the mail preferences on my mac so the email stays with the [url]... account? I have tried all the preferences but not finding a way to keep the mail at [url]....

Intel Mac :: During Gmail Upgrade, Standard User Accounts Changed To Mobileme Accounts?

Jun 28, 2012

I am not sure how it happened but after upgrading the gmail account, the user accounts were changed from standard users to Mobile Me users.  None of the users has ever had that type of account, and I am trying to figure out how to get it back to a standard user account.  When the user attempts to log in, it asks for the user name, but also the Mobile Me user name (which they do not have).  to make it worse, Mobile Me is no longer accpting new users, so I annot just add an account and log in using the new info.
