Question about Apple safari

1 Answer

My computer has "decided" to "change my name"

As we all know, e-mail messages are sent out as FROM "you" and received as TO"you". For some weeks now, my e-mail messages are identified by a completely different name, which happens to be a real name from a distribution list of a friend who habitually includes that list when sending out her most recent "Ya gotta see this" message.  A strange wrinkle is that recipients of my mail get my true name, and when I print out a copy of a message I have sent, the phony name that appeared on the screen now appears as my own name.  So I am the only one who knows what my computer has done to me.  I cannot find anyplace where I can delete this name and replace it with my own.  Any suggestions?

    In response to sammacjunkie --- and I hope this is where I make such a response --- I work on a Mac with Safari as my browser and Comcast.net as my e-mail provider.  Comcast customer support assures me that the problem is not with them but with Safari.


    Thanks for the response.  Edwin

    I don't know that the underlying problem was solved, but its manifestation was fixed.  The Mac tech support person asked me if the offending name was in my address book, which it was.  I removed it and my "from and to" are now correct.  What caused the connection I doubt I will ever know!  Thanks for your comment

How to change the text color of email addresses and URLs in my emails, received and sent


you probably cannot change the font color in e-mails received as the service only gets what is sent ( just like a fax )
however in sending e-mails , open new e-mail message or replying or forwarding existing messages
highlight the word/s or passage/s that you want to change the color of , go to the capital A in the tool bar, click on the drop down arrow then select the color that you want
all of that which was highlighted will now be that selected color

My email does not go thrugh


Verify the email address that it is going to. Try sending another test message but cc yourself in it see if you receive it. If the mail is received by you but not them than it is an issue on their mail server. If it not received by either it is an issue with your mail server.

Non receipt of some emails sent from a colleague in Australia.


Hello,
Check to make sure that your spam filter or junk e-mail box is not intercepting your missing messages. There are times when certain keywords in subject lines are earmarked as junk mail or spam simply because spammers happen to be using these same words. 
Also, be sure that you are not downloading mail from any other source other than your single computer. If so, be sure that the other machine or device is not downloading and then deleting your messages. 
Another possibility to check is to make sure no one else is downloading your e-mail. To be sure of this, change your password.
And lastly, there is always the chance that the messages are not being sent correctly. Several cases come to mind...I had a client who mentioned a similar problem that seemed to have sprung up overnight. In the end, the culprit ended up being the sender's auto-fill function was auto-filling a similar name, but incorrect e-mail address. Hence, it appeared that the sender was sending to the correct person, but since he did not check the actual outgoing e-mail address, some of the messages did not go out. They got sent to a third party. 
Anyway, hope this helps! If so, please take a moment to give this response a positive rating. Thanks!

I can not receive e-mails with attachments


It might be happening if there are some limitations/restrictions imposed as a part of the standard policies/procedures. for e.g.

Maximum message size of an email including all attachments is 20 megabytes. Incoming messages larger than that limit will be rejected, and error message returned to the sender.

Note that other email providers may have a lower attachment size limit, so attachments smaller than 20MB sent may still be rejected by the remote destination. Additionally, downloading large attachments will take a long time for recipients on slower internet connections.

We are using Microsoft Exchange as the email system. Preferred personal accounts are hotmail, gmail, yahoo....Gmail gives max attachment size approx. 10MB so is quite useful to transfer some bulky files....thks....do let me know if you have more queries....hv a nice day!!!

Warm Regards

You probably just need to clear your previous recipient list in Mail.

In Mail, open the Window > Previous Recepients and remove all listed entries.

If the issue persists, open Address Book, find the name, and delete it.
