Question about Apple safari

1 Answer

My computer is an IMac and my browser is Safari.As we all know, e-mail messages are sent out as FROM "the user" and received as TO "the user". 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?

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.

Why am i not receiving emails which i know have been sent nothing received since 11th february


Is your mailbox full? Are your senders getting messages that the mail could not be delivered because your mailbox is full? If so, you must delete some of your previously received or sent mail to make space for incoming mail.

If that doesn't do it, reply with more infornation. Who is your provider (Comcast, Gmail, Yahoo, etc.)? Do you use a mail client or a web browser to receive your mail? Windows, Mac, Android phone, iPhone, something else?

How to connect facebook to my safari browser and get gmail delivered to my mail


Safari is the chosen browser it sounds like and Chrome is your preference for which search engine will be used. Breathe. This is a preference change that is a couple of straightforward clicks from being exactly how you want it.

1. Close everything so we limit confusion if thats ok.
2. Click on Safari at the bottom of your screen to open your Safari browser.
3. Once open, click on the word Safari at the top of your computer screen next to the picture of the apple in the top left corner. Thats the menu bar and what we want. Don't over think it and try to find something in the actual browser window.
4. When you single click Safari a list will appear with About Safari at the top. We want to select (click) the third one down that says preferences.
5. This will cause a large square box to appear in the middle of your screen. It has General centered at the top.
6. Get excited because your almost done.
7. Just below General in the first 2 square boxes are your "preferences" for your browser and search engine. They should say google or chrome for your search engine based on your question. Click the box and change the preference to Safari or whatever you would like to use.
8. You did it. Dance a jig and be a wildcat. Change those whenever you want.

If you have more problems then ask again. 40fb01b8-8524-45fc-83da-3bef201284a0.png a0d46401-fdaa-4b2d-a144-7fe9fc93d17b.png

When i send an email, people receive from a different email


Not so weird.
Imagine you are using Microsoft Outlook on one computer. To use Outlook to send and receive e-mail you must give it an E-mail address. Image that you and your wife use a single user account on the computer. For the computer there is only one user. Then you configure Outlook by creating an account (you must supply your e-mail address.) Someday or other your wife wants to use Outlook to receive and send E-mail. She must add a second account to Outlook.
I have no idea what you do not to read each other's email but when you want to send an E-mail Outlook has too use one of the two accounts (the outgoing mail server of one of the two addresses) to send the E-mail. Apparently your wife's account is the default one and all outgoing messages go through it. Before you press the send button, open the account list and select the one to use for sending.

On the following screen capture see the arrowhead. Open that menu. You will see all the accounts managed by Outlook listed there. One of them is marked as the default one.
You may not be using Outlook but that should not matter, Your E-mail client may behave similarly.

I have received a mail with attachment and when i am trying to download the attachment it is not downloadble and the message will vanish


Is it an expected E-mail? if it is try to open it on different browser like IE, Firefox, Opera, Safari. Maybe try the Latest Browsers, maybe there are technical issue on your current browser. But if that is not a expected e-mail, i suggest not to open it, because there are lots of unknown e-mail with attachment that once you downloaded will automatically vanished but without your notice virus already spread on your computer.
For more info on how to fix your problem you can message me on my BLOGSITE Hope it Helps

On my imac the admin account shows safari fine, however when I add new user accounts, safari is not available. it shows a grey question mark. when I click on it it vanishes. how do I get safari...


Thanks for the clarification.

The best advice I can give is to either reinstall Safari for that user or install a seperate browser such as firefox for this account. The odd thing is that it isnt in the applications folder, because that would imply it doesnt exist, but as you say it works for the administrator?

Try logging on as the user, installing safari or an alternative browser and adding it to the dock for ease of access and let me know how you get on with that. If it doesnt work, I will think of another way to sort your issue :D
