I found a solution to my problem. So for future readers: Mail is caching (Bug?) the storage space in Mail. So after deleting a few thousands E-Mails, the space is still taken. The solution: Insert a few E-Mails back in archive. After importing a few E-Mails again, Apple is updating the cache. Guide: Deleting every E-Mail in archive ...

Had the same problem: one random email would freeze and crash Apple mail even if I scrolled over it without opening it. What finally worked was this: highlight a different message. Then hold down "Control" and click on the bad email — this allows you to "box in" the selected email without actually selecting it. You can then click delete and the email will ...

I just had this problem on OS 10.10 (Yosemite). Here's how I solved it: Select the inbox. Left-click "Account Info" Select "Messages on Server" tab. Wait until the size of all of your mailboxes is calculated. Select the Archive mailbox and click "Show Messages" button. The archive now appears in the mailboxes bar.

IOS 8.x does not prompt for resolution options when using the front facing camera, only the rear facing camera. The front facing camera will usually max out resolution with a file size in KB.

Ok, I still don't know what's going on with the .mbox thing. I suspect that's a mutt/mail config issue of some sort. BUT...

I had this problem, too, and about the same time Safari started acting up by not loading pages. I found that the problem was the Avast Anti-Virus Software that I had installed on my machine. Once it was removed, the problem was solved: no more Safari issues and no more Outlook issues, specifically Error -3253.

I had this same issue but with my signature and here is that I did. I manually saved the image to my computer, then dragged it into the email signature field and it went through just fine and was not faded. I don't know why it does this but I reproduced it a number of times.

OK. I'll try to answer both questions and if you need a follow on question to get progress that's fine as well. Don't su between users to test things that are broken. It's far better to let OS X allow fast user switching and get a real, honest terminal open for the new user to test All you should need to do is have the user used to set up homebrew allow ...

I have 6 gmail accounts and when created the last one, I mistakenly mixed it up with another account's gmail server (they all have the same name 'Gmail' lol). The problem was: every time when I sent a message from my new account, it somehow ended up being sent from my other old gmail account..and if person replied to supposedly my new gmail account, it still ...

On your 5s, go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars. Tap the email account, and make sure the Mail slider is on. If the email account does not appear there, you have two options: Add it using the email and password.

Your setup isn't clear: if these are home servers, isn't there a router routing all mail requests to one of your servers? Still, to (partially) provide an answer to your question, in your situation, you shouldn't worry about losing email: according to RFC 2821, section 4.5.4.1 about Sending Strategy: Retries continue until the message is transmitted ...

The two best tools for shifting email from one server to another would have to be imapsync and offlineimap. Of these offlineimap probably has the best instructions and assistance. You could either transfer the emails directly or, with a little setup, download them to your Mac and then back up to the new server.

It is possible that the mail was sent from a disposable e-mail address. If that's the case then mail sending will be failed.

The error is on their end, not yours, and that is where the response is coming from. The best you can do is contact the intended recipient via another method and have them check their email account.

From the Apple Watch user box (https://manuals.info.apple.com/MANUALS/1000/MA1708/en_US/apple_watch_user_guide.pdf): "Choose which mailbox appears on Apple Watch. Open the Apple Watch app on iPhone, tap My Watch, then go to Mail > Include Mail. You can specify only one mailbox, although if you don’t choose a mailbox, you’ll see content from all inboxes."

Your Mail accounts are saved in your keychain. Take a look if they are there (with password ect..), you might see multiple entry (2) for each account. One is for sending (IMAP) one is for receiving (SMTP) If you have problems try restoring the Disk permissions in the Disk utility.

The automatic domain selection in Mail based on the address is not possible but.... There is a setting in Mail, send from the account of the selected mail box. Means, if you create or reply to emails while in the Mailbox of the University it will use that account. However, if you create reply from your other account it will use that one. So all you ...

When using IMAP mail accounts you have to do nothing: this is already a "sync" method. Only POP is not synced. See other answer. Lex

Easy: winmail.dat is just a compressed item. There are numerous little apps, that let you "open" them by using it: I use TNEF's ENOUGH (appstore) but there is also winmail.dat reader on the appstore.

The sender is using the proprietary email client Microsoft Outlook. The entire message is sent in a proprietary format to preserve Rich Text Formatting, according to Microsoft. A Google search for Winmail.dat will reveal several work arounds to deal with these kinds of files. The simplest, but most annoying, is to ask the sender to resend the email in ...

It was likely sent from a Windows PC using some variety of MS Exchange. There is a fix but it has to take place on the Exchange server. And while it is a simple configuration change most Exchange admins don't see the need unless prodded from above. You may have to get one of the utilities that decode a winmail.dat files. I thought I saw one the other day ...

instead of going into All Inboxes; go into the Exchange or yahoo email box for example; the from: will be the one you want when you create new emails.

The best idea is to pay for (or set up) server side junk mail filtering. That allows all the clients to only spend time downloading non-junk. Have a look at Mail Route (10 percent off link from the podcast where I heard about it sponsoring most recently) - http://mailroute.net/thetalkshow.html You probably will spend more on the service than the cost to ...

I successfully changed the name others see when I email them (from my iPad Air 2) by putting the name I want them to see into Contacts and making sure to give that name the email address I want it to have. I don't understand why it works but it does! This may only work on the iPad (possibly just the iPad Air 2), so if you want to change your 'from name' ...

I went to the free memory section, and saw that I had only 400MB free (of 16G). So I deleted a few apps, pics, videos etc, and then I could easily send email. Again, not sure that this will work for everybody. If your email settings were right, and everything was working right (you did not change any passwords or servers etc.), this fix may work for you.

Try going into the Mailbox menu and clicking "Rebuild". This will rebuild your mailbox and hopefully fix the problem. Note: This process may take some time depending on the number of messages in your mailbox

OS X 10.10.3, email 8.2 seem to have fixed the problem. If I go to the header of an email having attachments, I'm offered an iconized menu that allows me to save attachments to the folder of my choice. That seems to work.

I was able to option click the message, this selects it without opening it, then you can just delete it from the option-click-menu that will appear. Worked like a charm after trying 10 different hacks that didn't work (including the one above).

You may want to play with standard MacOS X tool - Automator. Not a big expert myself :), but I know it helps in exactly this type of tasks. Here are couple of useful basic tutorials on Automator: http://www.macosxautomation.com/automator/learn.html https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z56PBanBSx4

You might want to consider using a scripting language to do this. I've created a simple JavaScript for Automation program that can do the job (it can also be fairly easily replicated in AppleScript): finder = Application('Finder') finder.includeStandardAdditions = true file = finder.chooseFile() path = String(file).replace(' ', '%20') You could then use ...

I have a solution that may not be for everyone as it involves Outlook on a permanently on PC. I use IMAP on my phone, the mail account in Outlook is always on and many rules in place, since the PC syncs every minute or so the rules are applied by Outlook. I get the occasional one that lands on the phone prior to the PC so does not get action-ed, apart from ...
