Mac OS X Mavericks is free and cool, but as some users have learned all too well since its launch, some of its features aren't quite where they should be. The biggest culprit is perhaps Mail.app, which still gives some users trouble when they want to check for new mail or move or delete messages. Apple fixed some of the issues with a patch last November, but for users who're still having trouble, MacRumors reports that Apple's published a manual workaround.
Every Monday, we'll show you how to do something new and simple with Apple's built-in command line application. You don't need any fancy software, or a knowledge of coding to do any of these. All you need is a keyboard to type 'em out!
The sky is the limit when it comes to interacting with your computer over the command line interface through the Terminal app. Sending email is no exception. In this week’s Terminal 101, we’ll show you how to send email to any recipient through the command line. You don’t even need an email account!
If you use Thunderbird, you’re probably used to getting by without the bells and whistles –– or price tags –– of other, flashier mail clients. Who needs ‘em anyway, even for important operations like migrating to a new Mac or Thunderbird installation? Even if you don’t use Time Machine to back up your Mac’s drive, it’s easy to back up and restore your Thunderbird messages.
You probably use Outlook for business, which makes it doubly important you save every message when moving to a new copy of Outlook on another Mac or after reinstalling OS X. Fortunately it’s easy to do even if you don’t use Time Machine or another method to back up your Mac’s drive.
Lion’s Mail brings many new features, but it still won’t magically back up and restore your messages when you move to a new Mac or reinstall OS X. But don’t worry. It’s easy to transfer mail to a new copy of Mail, even if you don’t use Time Machine or another method to back up your Mac’s drive.
If you've waited an entire minute for Outlook to open, or fought with Mail's screen-spanning interface, you might have longed for a better way. Light, flexible Sparrow could be your answer. Its interface looks sparse, with a Twitter-esque inbox window where you can double-click messages to open them in their own windows, or in a drawer that slides out to the right. And that's just the beginning of Sparrow's flexibility.
Following a report earlier this week that Japanese Apple Store locations had served as a means of communication for many in the beleaguered country after last week’s earthquake and tsunami comes word that Apple CEO Steve Jobs has pledged his company’s assistance with employees there.
Mail is an unruly little app. With this week's tips, we'll teach you how to grab it by the reigns and tame the default Mail app on your iOS device. Read on to find out how to keep image attachments from automatically downloading to your phone, read email more effectively with your two hands (yes, both!), and manage links sent to you in an email. We'll even show you how to handle email attachments.
Email is short for “electronic mail”--of course--but these, days that “e” might as well stand for “everyday” or even “essential” since that’s how much we use it. It’s absolutely our preferred form of communication and has been for years—it’s hard to remember the last time the mailman delivered an honest-to-goodness paper letter.
But even if it’s a given that we’re all constantly sending and receiving email, what’s less obvious is which of the Mac-friendly email clients is the best fit for each user’s situation. Maybe you need a client that can capably handle multiple accounts, or perhaps you need one that can fetch messages from your company’s Microsoft Exchange server. Maybe you want one that can meticulously sort all your incoming email instead of dumping it all straight into your inbox.
For many, the biggest disappointment of iOS 4.2.1 was the reality that the long-awaited AirPlay feature was essentially neutered -- video streaming to an Apple TV was only possible from Apple’s own apps. According to Steve Jobs, that may change next year.
