  • Apple Mail IMAP - No. repeat Sync

    10.11.5 OS

    I have a problem that Apple Mail will only synchronize to an IMAP on Apple Mail opening account, then it will not sync list ("refresh") the message. If I close Apple Mail and restart and then I get new messages but still once it will not sync again. In the activity window and the system log, there is no error (at least that I can find).

    I have 2 Gmail accounts in addition to IMAP (which is a GroupWise server). Both the synchronization of GMAIL accounts and update without any problem. Also, can I use AirMail beta and it can be correctly synchronized with the IMAP account.

    Best,

    Steven

    Add a folder in the Mail with the name of the account. This will identify the folder that contains the records to the appropriate account.

    Remove the problem account in mail. This will bring you to system preferences > Internet accounts. Uncheck the Mail for this account.

    Go to the user library mail > V3

    Look in the folders and select the folder for the account.  You display the contents of the folders to find the folder with the name of the account. It is easy to find gmail. They will look like this:

    You will see the files named as follows:

    AosIMAP-xxx

    C7AA1753-CDA7-4C5D-9505-05B73B565A50 /.

    C9A984AA-A145-4988-8279-B93445951DAB /.

    MailData

    Once you identify the account, drag this folder to the trash.

    In MailData, delete the three files including the envelope in the name.

    Open Mail.

    Mail will be re-index your messages.

    When Mail is opened, go to System Preferences > accounts Internet and check Mail for this account.

    Your messages and the file should upload to the server.

    Once completely downloaded all new items should synchronize.

    I try to send a Word document to me by e-mail. He asks me to configure the pop3 account information. Where would I be able to find this info? (I'll use my gmail account)

    He asks for a default mail client? This may work, but if not, just start a new message, and then attach the document.

  • How to set the junk e-mail folder in Mail ios9?

    In other computers and devices, all my IMAP accounts have folder 'Spam' set for managing junk e-mail.

    And ios devices continue to create a folder called "Junk," and you really can't tell ios9 this folder to use for spam?

    Really? version 9 of the software lack of settings from IMAP account base?

    Is there something magic that could be done in IMAP-path or any other object server to guide ios9 side?

    The answer: you can't.

    You can set drafts, sent, trash and Archives, but you cannot set undesirable.

    Simple design flaw, the time for your comments.

  • Mac OS Sierra mail IMAP account attachments

    Hello

    Since I upgraded to Sierra, IMAP e-mail account set up on mac mail does not work how it should. For some weird reason, number of mails in my Inbox attachments disappeared and I can't find them. I can see the attachment on my IOS mail, but not Sierra mail. Can you please help?

    Thank you

    Hi krmshn,

    I understand that after upgrading to Mac OS Sierra, you can't view attachments you receive via your IMAP e-mail account. I know it's important to have access to all your files, so I'm happy to help you.

    It is possible that during the upgrade, your IMAP mailbox has been corrupted and prevents you to view these attachments. To resolve this problem, we will rebuild your mailbox.

    To rebuild your mailbox:

    1. Open mail
    2. Select the mailbox in the sidebar to the left
    3. Use the Mail menu bar and choose BALL > rebuild. This will take some time depending on the number and size of messages in the Inbox mailbox.

    Thank you for using communities Support from Apple. See you soon!

  • No folder "Sent" for e-mail in Windows Live Mail IMAP accounts

    Looks like some other people have this problem, but could not find a clear solution. Basically, I just installed Windows Live Mail and I am trying to Setup IMAP accounts. I had a POP account that worked well and my IMAP accounts send and receive emails fine. The problem is that there is no other folders outside the Inbox for my IMAP accounts. When I go to IMAP folder, I can turn on the drafts, junk, sent, and trash. But these files are placed in the Inbox folder and after sending an email, I still haven't the email placed in the "sent" folder. What happens here? I cannot figure out how move the drafts, junk, sent, and trash folders so that they are side by side with the Inbox and not less.

    solved the problem. No matter who has the same problem, how fix it you is by selecting any e-mail account you want to change, go to properties, then IMAP. Once you're done IMAP your folder "Inbox" root and check off "check for new messages in all folders. Then also check 'special folders Store on the IMAP server. The most important step is to make sure that all the names that you can change are correct and match the names of the folders under your e-mail account. By example, if by default to send it says "Sent items" move to "sent". Do this for every file and it will automatically correct the problem.

  • How does the pencil of Apple Mail.

    How works Apple pencil in mail. You can write your message on the fly. I don't see to be able to write. There is no brand of tilde on the keyboard as in the notes.

    It's pretty cool, actually. As far as I know, you can use the pencil in response to emails and attachments. Find an email where you received a JPG or PDF file (or send to yourself) and then while you look at e-mail hold the pencil on the attachment. The pop-up window should appear which gives you all the regular options (as Message, Mail, save attachments, etc.) and the choice should be "markup and answer. Then the attachment opens a window of markup where you can draw on it, add a signature, etc. with the pencil.

    Right now to find all the features in applications which are unlocked using the pencil is kind of cool, although I wish there was a comprehensive document to Apple about it somewhere which simply lists / explain so that we can get the most out of our new pencils.

    Hello

    WCC does not support servers Auth based e-mail, but as a workaround, some you can set the address of the SMTP server of the University Complutense of MADRID (option config.cfg "MailServer = xxxxxx") to localhost and use sendmail from the server host (if Linux/UNIX) or SMTPServer (if Windows) abilities to interface with the SMTP server - the scale of the field located in the MX records.

  • Apple Mail & IMAP Bell of intermittent problems of connection and synchronization

    I had Bell (Canada) mail for years and has implemented the server IMAP end of 2015 but just 2-3 weeks ago I started having problems with my iPhone and Macbook, mailboxes remaining in harmony.

    If I delete a message or move it to a folder, it may or may not do on the other device, or on the Web page of @bell.net for mail. He will sometimes move but leave the message as 'read' in the Inbox on other devices.

    Also I see mail on the Macbook sometimes happen and then moments later disappear but still be on the phone.

    I am also getting intermittent messages:

    don't arrive on iPhone6 - mail. The imap.bell.net mail server is not responding. Check that you entered the correct email account information in Mail.

    on Macbook using Mac Mail - Server returned the error: connections to the imap.bell.net on the default ports server has expired.

    These messages may appear for a few minutes, and then it checks mail very well. Very random and intermittent.

    Crazy. I spoke with tech support several times in recent weeks, nothing helps. All the settings are correct and updated test / verified several times. Anyone else having this problem? They seem not to be aware of this...

    Thank you!

  • Question about Apple Mail IMAP

    I have converted e-mail accounts on two computers (mine and my wife's) POP IMAP. We have two email addresses that are the same on both computers. We now see that delete or move an e-mail message from a computer also done the same thing, automatically, on the other computer. It's embarrassing, because some of us can delete or move one message before the other saw it.

    Is there a way to isolate incoming messages on both computers to avoid this problem?

    Yes, do not use the IMAP protocol.

    Accounts IMAP synchronize the changes on the server, and will sync exchange for each client using the account. If you want to manage the same account separately, use rather pop.
