The smart mailboxes aren't real mailboxes—they're just filters stored in Mail preferences. You can't find the location of the smart mailbox because it's not actually stored separately on disk.

Yes, you can send a text message to your friend using your Amazon Fire, to their iPad, but only if they have an iPhone as well. If they do, then your message will either go SMS (Short Message Service), which is basically what you know as a text message, or MMS (Multimedia Message Service), which is what gets sent when you send a photo to a friend with a ...

No, you will have to have a device running either OSX or iOS for it to work, eg a MacBook, iMac, iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad to name a few. iMessage works on these platforms only. Other messages will either be sent as SMS or emails, depending on the client you are sending from and other unknown variables.

Yes, there's no problem in sending emails like that from OS X. First, you'll need to configure postfix to relay emails. Once you've done that, you'll need to create the script that sends the email. I'm not sure what method you're using to send email on the Linux system, but something very similar should work on OS X, for example, using mailx. Assuming ...

The only solution is to call Apple Support. Just go to the Apple ID support page and enter the information as it affects you. (I think going to "Apple ID" -> "Disabled Apple ID" would suit you best). I recommend calling telephone support, but you can also email them like suggested. Either way, it would be best to have a device connected to that ID.

I use Gmail for Work along with Mac Mail and how I got around this was by opening: Preferences > Accounts Then in the Email Address field I put a comma after the address that was there and then added the other address I wanted to be able to reply from. For me I added 4 different ones just by separating with a space and comma like this: me@gmail.com, ...

If you want to be able to reply with a specific FROM email address, you need to set up this email account in Apple Mail. When the new email account has been set up, you'll under the new email account's 'Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP)' setting have the server to use when replying - and by having this new account, you'll be able to choose it from the drop-down ...

Was the me@mtk.org account added separately to Mail or the Mac? If not, you'll need to disable forwarding of the me@mtk.org account to the me@gmail account and add the me@mtk.org account to Mail or the Mac.

The history of your calls and messages will be stored in your device but in an encrypted manner which even apple doesn't share or record them in iCloud. So FaceTime and iMessage are safe. But if you give your Apple ID and password to someone else, than can have a hand over the messages. So you can protect them by enabling Two step Verification for your ...

I also couldn't export the entire mailbox - only 200mb were exported. After I did a Mailbox Rebuild (see Mailbox > Rebuild in the Menubar), all mails (1.25GB) were exported.

Press and hold anywhere on the text area. A contextual menu will appear. If there is no text on the message, the option to the right will say "Insert Photo or Video". If there is text, the options will be "Select", "Select all", "Paste" and an arrow. Clicking the arrow will show "Insert Photo or Video" Click on it and select the Photo or Video you ...

I would strongly suggest looking into the app SpamSieve, which functions in tandem with Apple Mail by assigning more stringent rules for sorting and which has a more advanced learning algorithm than that which is built in to Apple Mail. I've found SpamSieve to be pretty much flawless and am really glad it exists. It's kind of expensive, though; so you might ...

Tho I have never had to do this before but I just checked and it seems that Dropbox allows you to rename files. So if you have a file attachment in email you can save an "image" file in an email to Dropbox and once there you can rename it. A bit of a kludge but Dropbox accounts are free...

OK, I have found the answer in my case. I did as follow. In addition to the advice provided by akjblue, go/reset: Apple>System Preferences>Sound>Sound Effects and check "Play user interface" = ON. Also go . . .>Sound Effects>Output and select Internal Speakers. It may be necessary to cycle these settings off and on again to make the settings "stick".

Make sure that the option "Play sounds for other mail actions" is checked in Mail preferences under the General tab. When activated, you should hear the "swoosh" sound when sending an email.

The easiest (albeit slightly lengthy) way to do this is to create a custom service, like so: Create a new Automator Service. Have it take no input in Mail and put the following code into a "Run JavaScript" action: mail = Application('Mail') mail.includeStandardAdditions = true for (i in mail.selection()) { mail.selection()[i].delete() } Save the ...

There are two ways to do that. The easy way is to use the "List view". As long you use the preview window it will mark email as read as soon it shows in the preview window. The more complicated is to move the cursor upward then delete, now it wont mark the unread as read because it will move to next read (assuming it is above the just deleted). Try it, ...

Open Help in Mail and search for can't send or can't receive. Walk through the steps to troubleshoot this. Last resort - open Window > Connection Doctor and dig into the specific error messages for each non green light account.

Sounds frustrating. I had a similar problem recently where they moved my account to a new server. Unfortunately I did have to just remove the account and re add one, which turned out alright after I fixed my rules and copied my ssignatures I would suggest disconnecting from the cloud, removing the broken account, then reconnecting to the cloud to see if it ...

Buscar has the gist correct, though I would add a step: backup your ~/Library/Mail folder (OPTION-Drag it to the desktop) then delete the account. One that is done add it back. If your old mail has vanished when the new account has been established just import the backed up mailboxes sitting on the Desktop.

This seems to be a known bug which has been around since (if Google is anything to go by) at least OS X 10.8 (!) and is still not fixed. That's modern Apple for you. None of these worked for me (e.g. the "Rebuild" option is greyed out, for starters!) but maybe they'll help you. Mail.app inbox becomes blank after a few minutes of use

Click on the A in the right upper corner inside the new mail message you wish to compose. That will bring up the text mark-up option, including colors. So far I haven't seen an option in Yosemite to set this as default.

Add your Yahoo! email as IMAP and upload your mail manually from the old —presumably POP— storage on your Mail.app. I haven't tried it myself but in recent OS X versions adding accounts is straightforward. If this is not the case and you have to configure it manually, Yahoo! offers relevant information to that effect here.

Do you have a Google "App password" set up? If not, you need one. This thread has a lot of information about how to do that: How to setup Gmail SMTP server for OSX Mail with 2-step-verification and App-specific password? If that is not the problem, it may be that the Yosemite upgrade broke it. I posted a detailed list on the apple forum of steps I took ...

From comments… As it would appear that many people across the net are struggling & failing to get set properties to {visible messages:msgList} to work at all, it might be simpler in the long run to just pop up a count of unread/unflagged messages & optionally sort by flagged then unread for easy discovery in the Mail window. I added in a 'sort by ...
