For about 10 years my colleagues and I have used iChat, then Messages to exchange images for work (we use
AIM). A year or so (maybe longer) we could no longer transfer images back and forth. The recipient never got an alert that a file is trying to be sent to them, but on my end Messages claims it has been sent.
However, looking in
Console I see errors when trying to send the image:
2/4/16 3:46:05.000 PM kernel: Sandbox: com.apple.messag(95477) deny(1) file-read-data /Users/nnhubbard/Library/Messages/Attachments/54/04/784F9421-C5B4-4CB8-B3F8-2426F4D783AB/longo.jpg 2/4/16 3:46:05.622 PM com.apple.messages.TranscriptRenderingService: [Warning] Transfer: unable to create image for longo.jpg
This is a very frustrating problem that a number of us have, and we have all done research to try to fix the issue.
** Strangely we CAN transfer .zip files. **
Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this and what these error might mean?
