I would say go to Mail -> Preferences -> Gmail -> Advanced. There is a box labeled "Automatically detect and maintain account settings". Uncheck it. You should now be able to edit the respective fields (including password.) However, this seems to be greyed out for me as well, so I'm not sure. I'm not sure if this will work, but try it. Go to Mail -> ...

So it seems I may have just stumbled upon the cause myself; in addition to my active e-mail accounts, I also had two disabled IMAP accounts (no SMTP details) that I've been migrating from recently. It turns out that while these were listed in Mail they were not listed under Internet Accounts, contrary to what Mail would say when I tried to remove them. ...

Since mobileMe (which handed out the @me.com addresses) was turned off some time ago, all you can now create are @icloud.com emails. If you had an AppleID which predates mobileMe (e.g. a dot Mac account) you would have three aliases: myname@mac.com myname@me.com myname@icloud.com So the short answer is, no it is not possible to create a new @me.com email ...

Mail can perform Boolean searches, but only in message contents, not in headers (such as Subject, From, or Date). When using Boolean operators, always use uppercase — AND, OR, and NOT — so Mail doesn’t search for the actual words and, or, and not. You can use a minus sign (-) as a shortcut for AND NOT, so, if you type Jack -Jill in the Search field, you’ll ...

I think I found the problem -- I've seen this problem happen across 3 different macs in my extended family. Today, in utter frustration, I started searching for a solution... Previous Recipient list was not the problem. It was Contacts. Do a Spotlight search on your email address (the actually address) and see if you have extra contacts show up with that ...

No. The large email will be uploaded to the server only once, regardless of how many recipients it has. The server will then take care of sending this large email to all its recipients.

The space used in your mailbox/server is independent from the number of receivers and also the data used to upload the file online.

Text messages that are blocked are not saved. So you cannot go in to see old text messages.

I am looking for this also. This answer claims: "AppleScript doesn't offer any means of getting a list of replies to a message. My workaround is to get the message id of the message being replied to and search it in the sent messages." TimeToReply.com also provides a similar service, but they have locked out new users pending product updates (unfortunately, ...

If you have been blocked the phone will ring once then go straight to voicemail or it will go straight to voicemail without ringing. A text message will show as delivered but the person will never see it. If it has a single green tick next to it it means you have been blocked.

When I upgraded to El Capitan the new mail.app took it upon itself to create email accounts for my configured SMTP servers. I use gmail and leave my primary home Mac on POP, as a kind of backup. Mail remains on the server and a copy remains on my Mac. It works for me and the volume of email I get. But here mail.app had turned the SMTP servers into an IMAP ...

In my case the following approach has fixed this issue, for the time being at least: (Using Mail.app version 9.2) Go to Mail > Preferences and select the 'Composing' tab. In the section of preferences relating to 'Responding' and change the settings so that they are the opposite of what you normally use. Save the changes. I then quit Mail. (In my case I ...

Have you tried just dragging the folders to rearrange them in the order you want? This works for me under Yosemite & Mail 8.2. Give it a try!

This is an old post but might be helpful for some. It turns out, as far as I can tell, that the alert emails originating from the Mac mail app are just following the instructions you have programmed on Google Calendar, much like pop up notifications work. That being said, as of now, there is no way to ignore than instruction from google calendar unless ...
