Mac Mail app problem

Recently, I bought my first Apple computer. Instantly, I wanted to add my Gmail and Hotmail e-mails to the e-mail account, as I have on my iPhone. The problem is that my Hotmail email is my Apple ID, when I try to add the Hotmail account in the mail application I get a tat to say notification that the e-mail account already exists. When I enable messaging in iCloud parameters I keep on getting notification that he could not my mail and I should change my settings/iCloud mail preferences. Any help?


I contacted Apple support, and we have found a solution to this problem. We had to disable the e-mail in iCloud and add account screen e-mail account hotmail but scroll down and select 'Add account' - the logo with the sign @. hope this helps someone who has this problem.

  • Victory 8.1 Mail App problem

    I got the mail app works with 3 email accounts: Hotmail (I guess that obvious), GMAIL and my ISP account (POP3 through Outlook.Com).  This worked well for a few days, but crashed yesterday.

    I got an 'X' in the lower right of the slab of the app and it made me go to the "store" to fix the app.  After a while she completed her repairs and I restarted the computer ("when in doubt - reboot").

    Now the ISP account disappeared and I get the message that the login or password is invalid.  The 'Needs attention' GMAIL account  When I try to access the GMAIL account, it gives me a message account already exists.  I can't "remove" account.  The HOTMAIL account seems to work OK in the messaging application.

    All three accounts are available in FIREFOX.

    My thought was to remove the Mail app and reinstall, but before I do I would like some advice for how to proceed.

  • Problems listening to MIDI files in

    My parents recently moved from a Windows 7 PC to an iMac.

    My mother is part of the singing group and is sent to the MIDI files of different parts of song to practice at home.

    In the past, she has been able to open files directly from noon in his e-mail on the PC application.

    Now that she has moved to a Mac (under El Capitan), MIDI in e-mail files appear as playable "audio" files, but only show with 'Error' and cannot be read. I was able to reproduce this problem on my Mac. Here is how to see the MIDI file:

    Is there something that can be done so that my mom can listen MIDI from Mail files without having to open them in Garageband?

  • Comcast mail will not work on PORT 995 problem once again!

    OK, so this problem has arisen in the last days.

    I can't send or receive mail from Comcast in

    At first, it was the 995 problem, but now it just says:

    The server returned the error: the attempt to send data to the server "" failed.

    After three calls to Comcast, told me it's because, because "Apple changed something in the application.

    Is not the thing the more ridiculous than you already heard? I have not updated anything either and to my knowledge, Apple is just change your app on your hard drive.

    Twice before, Comcast, once they have admitted that the problem was theirs, has been able to fix it. But not now.

    Yes I can get mail on the web, but it's stupid, and I need to use the POP email... I work online all day.

    They suggested one of the ports be changed from 587 to 465 but that doesn't work anymore. I use SSL with PW auth.

    I have set up scores of Mac for people and this isn't a problem with, but a Comcast server problem that they will NOT admit.

    Anyone having this problem and what to do? I have about 50 other emails configured, are not those of the areas will on the same PIPE and using the VERY SAME SETTINGS to SEND?

    Have you tried the settings for IMAP e-mail? Or is your requirement such that you need POP? - xfinity-email.

  • Problems using Mac Mail with Hotmail address

    I had ZERO problems with Mail and my Hotmail e-mail address for years until Sunday evening. I thought that maybe the Hotmail servers are down and cannot send e-mail that he requested my password, but it says that it was not correct. (but it was) Today I open mail and get the same message and my iPhone was not able to receive mail. After deleting and adding the Hotmail account on my iPhone, it works and receiving mail. On my Mac, it's another story. I removed it without any problems, but when I went back to add an account, it says the account already exists. My Hotmail account is not listed in my internet accounts and not showing is not on my mail. I tried setting up with a fake account and manually enter server information and it STILL says that the account already exists. Is it possible for me to again access my Hotmail on my Mac mail? Thank you!

    After digging around some more to the forums I found my resolution. I had to remove my iCloud account (which uses my hotmail email address) then add my Hotmail email, then add my iCloud account again.

  • How UNSYNC Mac Mail and Gmail, so the messages are only 'read' on each device?


    I use Mac Mail and Gmail with my own domain through Google Apps.

    My account managers have personal emails (IE [email protected] & [email protected]) and they also have an email that they all use two ([email protected]) which is set up on both of their computers for if someone is sick, they know what the other is working on.

    The problem is that when one of them reads an email on the "[email protected] email, mark it as read on the enamel of the other person too.» Is there some way to do so a new message arrives and he scored only as read email when each person reads it?

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't think so. Google apps uses IMAP or ActiveSync, which are intended to reflect all changes across the mailbox is used. Looks like you're after more than one distribution from the list which will copy the email in each personal users box, as a list of all the staff, but as you have several accounts, which could become confusing.

    It might be worth looking at login via POP - if Google allows. POP basically just download all will send them on the sync server and custom changes (providing check you what are the options in the account settings). It is not guaranteed that POP is not generally pushed, so will check every 5 min or so - and if someone read and email deleted at this time, it will not download a copy.

    Alternative would be to set up rules that transmits an entrant copy each users mailbox and that filter in a subfolder, but this all duplicate and the habit of thinking whats been answered or deleted in the source mailbox.

    I hope that makes sense...

  • Mac Mail showing a plugin in/Users/USER/location when there is no user named USER account

    Thanks in advance for your comments. I'm hopelessly confused and I was afraid that my infected machine.

    I tried running Mac Mail a couple of times and it stopped on me. Then the third time it closes that I received an error message that a plugin has caused the problem. The path of the Plugin is listed as /Users/USER/Library/Mail/*/HockeySDK.framework/Versions/A/HockeySDK and the Plugin identifier is net.hockeyapp.sdk.mac.

    I searched using terminal, finder and the console for a user named 'USER' on my mac account. I see users root are my user name.

    I understand that it is possible to hide a user account, but have you tried the commands that should display all hidden user accounts and they have not revealed a user named USER account. To be clear, I have tried all the standard ways in the terminal to find a user account and cannot.

    Is someone can you please tell me if my Mac is infected with some hidden user account? Here are some of the comments of the 'details and System Configuration problem' as the form of question will allow me to answer:

    The identifier for the PlugIn: net.hockeyapp.sdk.mac

    PlugIn version: 3.2.0 (31)

    It seems to be a related e-mail folder.

    In my case, I get this report due to a persistent fall whenever I click on the "Get new mail" icon in the mail.

    I wonder if someone answers this question could enlighten us as well.

    I just upgraded to a new computer with 10.8.5 installed (that's as far as going to 10.8).

    If Apple continues in the direction to emulate a badly coded and difficult to see and use the PC, I don't see how it will benefit financially. I did not pay 4 X as much for a Mac just to fight with the same problems people have on much lower (used to be anyway) PCs.

  • crash at startup

    Suddenly, mid-afternoon Friday, my started crashing on my laptop whenever I start it (Mac Book Pro, 2010), and today when I turned on a mac mini it started doing the same thing.

    When I open the app it begins to get the mail, and before the finish mail synchronization with the server, it crashes. No matter if I try to interact with him or not (for example, try to view a message already downloaded), 10-45 seconds after its opening, it crashes. Have not been able to get it remains open since Friday, even for a minute.

    I'm under the last 10.11.4 El Capitan update on both. I updated the mac mini to this version of el cpitan, on April 23. Crash did not begin until today, April 30, so I don't think that it has nothing to do with the update.

    in the menu at the top of the screen bar.

    In the upper right corner of the Console window, there is a search box to filter. Enter the name of the application crashed or process. For example, if Safari has crashed, you would enter "Safari" (without the quotes).

I have just a few messages from Inbox of 2000 + (says the header to window).

    When I open the mail application, I can see the body of the message (body), as long as I select just a simple mail, non-conversation in the list. The problem starts when

    I click on some 'conversation' (blue triangle) mail: the mail body field appears empty, except the headers. Double click opens an empty window (just e-mail header fields are written). The second problem is, when I click again to all mail non-conversation - body is now empty (but it worked just a moment ago!).

    Smoking using mail app, but only until what I click on message "conversation."

    I have tried to box the letters a regeneration, the PRAM reset, removed the ~/Library/Mail/V3/MailData / envelope *, ExternalUpdates. * I don't have any mail extensions, the problem exists with and without web browser running, I don't have any antivirus running.
