Messages of the Sierra and the problems of continuity iMessage

I took these communities to try to resolve a problem which, for me, is as old as the first day iMessage became available for Mac.

I can't emphasize how incredibly boring, it is completely out of sync how both are. The problems are always the same:

(1) never are conversations in the issue of order/same on both devices. For example, for a conversation that has been exploited to iMessage on my iPhone, when I open my Mac, it appears in the notifications, like new. All the answers are there.

(2) a conversation that has been deleted from the iPhone suddenly appears on the opening on my Mac... seriously?

(3) the conversations that are deleted on my iPhone does not disappear in the Messages and vice versa.

To sum it all, pretty much the case is that both apps, while they expected to work simultaneously with fluidity to do what they want when they want.

This has been a problem since iMessage became available on Mac OS for the first time (think it was Mavericks). I've been waiting for Apple to fix this with each software update to make OSX or iOS. But guess what...?

My Mac running OS Sierra and my iPhone 6 s more running iOS 10.0.1. Everything that could be activated in so that they can work together has been activated and triple checked. I would really like to know if anyone has a way to fix this or if there is other people are having the same problem.



An excellent explanation of exactly how iMessages works on iPhone and Mac.

It does the same thing, if you add in an iPad or and iPod Touch.

iMessages are pushed, the Treaty is called, for devices that have been associated with (by adding the Apple ID on an iPhone).

This means that it is not as Mail where are read from the server and in the case of a POP account you can choose to let the "message" on the server if other devices can read.

IMAP accounts will be synchronized as you say but POP will be more like the Messages app with iMessages.

The iMessages which is addressed to you are marked by the number of devices is in the opportunity to see it.

He pushes the devices until they respond (Accept) once this device has accepted it is removed from signage and only devices that did not have a chance on seeing.

There is a time limit on how long the iMessages is pushed to a device (such that being away from your Mac turned off everything on vacation or phone that died or was out of range of the carrier)

Once the device have the iMessages it is removed from the server.

A simpler view is that the iMessages is "copied" and sent to each device and that each device can not see the other "versions" and that each "copy" is deleted from the server that happens on the device.

The news to "read" your comments, you might see comes that of the device, it was intended to (i.e. addressing a number only the iPhone to another end may, so together, to send the reply 'read').

Same thing with sent.  This is why you get a response, when he showed even "Delivered" as someone can answer from a connected device.

This means that the 'Sync' is really only show on all devices and nothing do you on one device will be the effect of the other.

It is not broken, even if this isn't what you think that told you about the device.

  • TB stopped to retrieve new messages and try to "reconfigure" my account to correct the problem, now, I lost my old messages.

    [15/04/14 edit #3] I posted the troubleshooting information and make a backup of profiles with MozBackup, so my problem is the presence of two inboxes, both to receive messages, and my not be sure we can safely be removed nor how to remove safely.
    [14/04/14 edit #2] Help of you bird taught me where my 'profiles' are stored but I found that I had no backup of their. However, I find now that I have TWO inboxes - had not noticed this before oddity. Fortunately, one of them contains again all my old posts! The Inbox that has still all my old messages is listed as a subfolder under "Local Folders" and the Inbox I thought was that my only Inbox is listed as a subfolder under the folder albums whose name is my email address. Two inboxes are now recover my new mail. Does this mean that I have somehow created two accounts? If so, how can I get rid of the account that uses the Inbox that has all my old messages inside? I don't want to get rid of the wrong account, but I suspect that the "right" should be listed under my email address, not covered by 'Local Folders'. If anyone understands this mess I created, I'd appreciate some tips so that I don't make things worse. At least, I have now learned what it is I need to back up.
    [14/04/14 Edition #1] This is a major update of the problem I described earlier (see below). I disabled the part Mail shield of my antivirus software Avast free and discovered that TB was again able to recover my email. Then I re-enabled Avast to see if it blocked again TB. He did not. So, apparently simply light shield mail out of Avast and back again seems to have solved the problem. However, there's now the consequences of my having tried to "reset" TB which is described below, namely the loss of a very large number of emails that have been stored in my Inbox. So the problem is I would like to get help is how to recover these apparently lost emails. If they stay on my hard drive, should TB to store and what specific files I look for? I do not have a backup of some of my drive hard (but), but I need to know how to identify them, where to look and how to get back to my Inbox without deleting its current content. I would really like to also retain their original, if possible dates. I'm under 64-bit Windows 8.1. [end edit on 14-04-14]

    TB suddenly stopped downloading my mail today. When I click Get Mail, I can see the screen very fast succession of messages; first the message "connected...". «, then «check...» ", then"download 1 of 10... ". ", and finally,"No message to download"after downloading absolutely none of them. I also noticed that my list of mailboxes not the entry of first showed my e-mail address as account name. Find that something important must have been changed in the setup of my account, I went through all the settings but didn't see any problem. Finally, I decided to try to restore my account even. Who did place my email address again back at the top of the list of mailboxes mailbox as my work account name, but he also created an even more serious problem. There is now no messages in my Inbox, I guess because I have created a new account using the same name as the old, whereas before there were thousands of messages I had saved for many years (since it is a business). Then when I click Get Mail, TB downloaded 383 messages that have not yet been removed from the server, which then gives all today (another loss since their initial dates were important). But after that he finished all the download, by clicking Get Mail still retrieves all messages past the time he stopped to recover earlier today. These new messages remain on the server - but now there are 14 of them instead of 10. The same succession of messages TB appears at the bottom of the screen, but now it says "Download 1 of 14..." but always downloads none and ends by, "no message to download. This sequence of messages will repeat as many times I want to pick up the mail but she can still count how many is NOT download. Two questions: (1) are the thousands of messages that have been stored in my Inbox always stored somewhere on my computer and is it possible to recover? (2) how can I get TB to begin to recover my current email again? I guess it's obvious that these are important issues for me and I am completely puzzled. Thanks in advance.

    I managed to recreate the same question.

    It's what, in my view, has occurred.

    The account that puts e-mails in local folders is set up as a global Inbox account.

    The account which has its own mail, mailbox is a classic e-mail account.

    When you created the global account to the Inbox, you have not restarted Thunderbird before you download, so the same e-mail is downloaded in the two accounts.

    E-mails currently in the global Inbox - Local folders Inbox is not deleted if you delete the account. but do not immediately.

    Please look under "Tools" > "account settings".
    You see two accounts with the same name using the same email address? I noticed you have account 2 and account 5 using different servers, but maybe the same e-mail address?

    Select the 'server' settings account 2 and click the button "Advanced".
    A small window opens, which is selected?

    • "Inbox for this account of servers.


    • "Inbox for the account of different" and "records the.

    Please also check account 5.

    One of these accounts will say "Inbox for the account of different" and "records the. This is the account that has emails in the Inbox folders and is configured as a Global account.

    Tell me which account is configured as global Inbox.

    In addition, I note that account 2 has more than one identity. You have two different email addresses that go to the same account?

    • In 'Tools' > 'Account settings' for account 2
    • Click on the button "manage identities".

    If you have two email addresses, and you want both emails go into this email account, then leave it alone. Click "close".

    If the two identities are the same (identical) email address, then there is no two, so you can delete the other. Select the second identity email address and click 'remove '. Then, click Close. If not sure leave it alone, but tell me what you have.

    Click OK

    Tell me what you have and if you have two email addresses the same as the identity of this email account and also if you have deleted the second email address.

  • Anyone having problems with messages of script with the new version of GMail and Yahoo Mail? All the others seem fine and no problems with other browsers. With the help of FF25

    Gmail and Yahoo mail are very slow to load. I get a message from the script almost whenever instruct me to continue or to stop the script. Everything I have shut down or restart the browser goes blank and hangs. So, I have to restart Firefox. I followed suggestions on the help pages for the slow e-mail accounts or issues. (cleared cache etc, reset etc.) nothing solves the problem. I only noticed the problem since the first update of FF25. Scripts to stop even on these pages is not acceptable, because you are directed to the pages who insist you must restart scripts. It's a nightmare! Gmail both Yahoomail are very slow to respond to clicks more.

    Your list of details of the system shows that you have a user.js file in the profile folder to initialize some preferences at each start of Firefox.

    The user.js file appears only if you or another software created, therefore, normally, he wouldn't be here.
    You can check its contents with a text editor if you do not create this file yourself.

    The user.js file is read whenever you launch Firefox and initializes the preferences to the value specified in this file, so set of preferences via user.js can be changed temporarily for the current session.

    You can rename or delete the prefs.js file and numbered possible prefs-# .js and the file user.js to reset all default prefs.

    You can use this button to go to the Firefox profile folder:

    • Help > troubleshooting information > profile directory: see file (Linux: open the directory;) Mac: View in the Finder)

    Note that the folder "Application Data" in XP/Win2K and the "AppData" folder in Windows Vista and Windows 7 and later versions are hidden folders.
