You said you had to change your Apple ID email associated with your account. I just want to make sure you signed out of the old one and signed in with the new email address under "Settings > Messages > Send & Receive" on both devices. After you do this, uncheck Settings > Messages > iMessage, wait 15 minutes and check it again.

I'm assuming you are talking about the default Apple messaging app - iMessages. In iMessages, you (as a sender) can set your iMessage Read Receipt to ON/OFF. If it's set to ON on YOUR phone, when a person sends you an iMessage text and you read it, they will get a READ indicator on their phone. Conversely, if you send a text to a person who has set their ...

The files that Messages saves have an ichat file extension. But from the command line you can inspect them to see they are actually binary plist files: $ file transcript.ichat transcript.ichat: Apple binary property list Turns out, you can easily convert binary plist files into human-readable XML documents: $ plutil -convert xml1 transcript.ichat Now, ...

I'm not sure it will even attempt to distribute messages to all possible destinations once one has definitely received it. I had a similar issue last year when my phone would be out of range for iMessage for most of the day, but my Mac at home was happily picking them up - I didn't see any of them til I got home :( See How to tell Messages "I'm ...

SMS Handoff is not a feature on Mavericks, it needs Yosemite to function [Thanks to @tubedogg for the confirmation] To enable it you would start from your iPhone… Settings > Messages > Text Message Forwarding - then add your computer from the list by switching on. That will send a code to the computer, which you then enter on your phone to confirm the ...

On my iPhone I just unchecked the email address and then turned iMessage off then back on and it picked up my cell number versus the dang email address

No. The messages will only pull through from the point iMessage is turned on. Only in a situation where iMessage is turned on but the computer is unable to receive them (sleep, offline, etc) will it backload messages.

Open the Messages app on your Mac and choose Messages menu > Preferences. Click on the Accounts tab, then click on your Apple ID on the left. Choose Sign Out on the right. Note that by doing this, you can no longer send iMessages from your Mac.

Go to messages (if you can't find it anywhere just hit command+space bar and search for messages). When messages opens up hit Messages again. It's a the top of the left of your screen next to the Apple logo. Hit preferences, and hit Accounts. You should see that you are signed in. Just hit your account and hit sign out. That should work.

It's an option similar to one I've previously searched in vain for - short answer is there is no granular control over whether or not to send as SMS. The safest option is likely to be to simply disable 'Send as SMS' altogether. Settings > Messages

The only workaround I've found is to use accessibility zoom; old man style. The problem persists in Yosemite 10.10.3 with the new Emoji picker.

Check "Text Message forwarding" under phone Settings > Messages > Text. This must be on (and your iOS device and OS X machine must be on the same network) for text messaging from Messages on OS X to work. (It's possible this was disabled disabled for his Mac after a reboot.)

Not sure for txt, but if that happens for iMessage, then reselecting the 'correct' number from the To: someone header above the text area [even if it looked right to you in the first place] can make it have a rethink. The area would show as red before, blue or green after 'fixing'. If 'no fix' is required then there is no colouration to that part until ...

OK, I figured it out, but it's not straightforward. I figured it had to be stored in a .plist file somewhere, so I searched all the .plist files in ~/Library/Preferences for ones that contained the Apple ID I used for iMessages. These were the ones: com.apple.ids.service.com.apple.madrid.plist com.apple.ids.service.com.apple.private.alloy.sms.plist ...

I'm not going to ask why your husband does not want a separate account but if it's just for keeping billing iTunes purchases under your then that can be done now with Apple's family settings. Making an Apple ID is free and he can use his existing email. Remember he can access a lot of your personal info even if you disable the iMessaging. I know married ...

As mentioned in one of the comments already, within Messages go to Preferences > Accounts and highlight the iMessage account. There either untick the box for Enable this account or sign out of iMessage, which will effectively disable the account.

Assuming the version of OS X is 10.10 (Yosemite): Go to System Preferences and click Internet Accounts. Choose an appropriate account, and deselect Messages from the list of selected applications.

You need to disassociate your Apple ID from iMessage on his iPhone. You can do this by following the steps outlined below. Don't worry, iMessage/FaceTime account settings are separate to iTunes account settings (so you can choose to have different Apple IDs for each) Open the Settings app Scroll down to and tap 'Messages' Scroll down to and tap 'Send & ...

I found an answer to this via google. This Applescript will send the iMessage: tell application "Messages" send "Text of Message" to buddy "+61mobilenumber" of service "E:*icloud email address*" end tell I saved that as an app, then set a recurring iCal event that will open the app at the time I set every day. Voila! Beautiful.

The messages app on the Mac has it's own preferences. Check if you're iMessage account is set up there and has a password set – perhaps you deleted it through keychain. If that doesn't help remove it with the minus and re-add the account.

Read means the user that you sent the message to actually opened up the iMessage app. If it says delivered, they most likely didn't look at the message although it was sent through. You can change it though in Settings to make it that you don't send a read receipt when you read a message.

It will send an email telling her iMessage has been enabled on a device. But there's no grant/deny option, it's just an informational email.
