I receive emails on my mac and some I forward to friends,but their unable to open them youtube etc and ask I send again but when I try I cannot open either. Please Help

Hi Richard. Thers a good chance you have mail preferences setup to compose new emails in "plain text". And/Or, "Use the same message format as the original message", meaning if you reply to someone who sent you an email that is in Rich Text Format, then your reply will be in Rich Text Format but, if they send you an email in Plain Text Format, then your reply, and possibly any forwarding will be sent in Plain Text also.

For website addresses to be "clickable links" in mail, you need to ensure all emails you send, forward, or reply are in Rich Text Format.
go to Mail... Preferences... then select the Composing tab and ensure Message Format is set to "Rich Text".
Further below in the same tab you will see "Responding" and a tick box for Use the same message format as the original message (Respond using Rich or Plain Text).
If you always want to respond or forward in Rich Text only and every time, then deselect that option.
All links should work and be clickable from then onwards.

You can highlight a non working website link in the email body, right click, then select "Link" then "Add Link" to make it clickable but, you will receive a notification about converting this message to rich text format?"

Basically, the links will not be clickable if you are setup to compose new emails in Plain Text. Nor will any replies or forwards you send that are changing to Plain Text to match the format received by you from others.
Always end, reply and forward in Rich Text Format

Hope that helps.

Have you changed mail set up i am having trouble sending & receiving mail a friend sent 4emails not getting through i sent one and i did not get notice of it been sent

Open Mail, in the left hand corner click mail, then preferences. In the Accounts window you can either erase or add a new account, with the + or - buttons on the bottom left. Check with your email provider to get the settings for the mail account and you're good to go.

I need to have my account credited. I am a member of Pogo and when I entered my password, it came back as invalid.

Sorry, this isn't a computer problem. You will have to get in touch with someone at Pogo to help reset your password.

This is a question from a friend of mine who recently was given a used imac. Any ideas what he can try doing? when I plug it in and turn it on I get a grey screen with a little icon in the middle (looks...

What your friend is seeing, is an indicator that the Mac 333 Mhz, is not able to boot up to recognizable Mac OS volume. This means that Mac OS volume is either damaged or has some how been corrupted.

Apple advises the only fixes for such an issue with this class of their "legacy computer" series is to back up the data on the hard drive if possible and reinstall the Mac OS version is was operating with, or simply go a step further and upgrade to the highest version of the Mac OS X family of operating systems, that this iMac G3 qualifies for.

Here is a link from Apple support for resolving this issue for this legacy mode;
Macintosh starts up to Grey Screen

If your friend is interested in knowing what is the highest version of Mac OS X he can install on his iMac 333,, it would be Mac OS X 10.3 Panther.

This version is the highest upgrade for the iMac 333 because Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger will only work with Macs that have a built-in Firewire port.

Here is the technical specifications link from Apple for this model:
Technical Specifications - iMac 333 Ghz (1999)

This should help.

We are using mac os x 10.3.9, using mail we can see our sent mail but can't open it. The message says we have to take the account online to view. We have tried a rebuild and that deleted all the existing...

Connection Doctor would help here, but unfortunately Apple did not add this feature until 10.4. :-(
If I understand your problem correctly, you can send mail successfully, but trying later to access those messages in your Sent mailbox results in this error message. If you are using an IMAP account, you may need to visit Preferences / Accounts / Mailbox Behaviors and uncheck the box for "Store sent messages on the server." If you are using a POP account, it's possible the mailbox (or a Mail preference file) is simply corrupt and will need to be deleted and recreated. Unfortunately, the Panther and Tiger mail systems are known to be susceptible to certain types of corruption.

I have a Apple PowerMac G4 with around 384MB-512MB of ram. currently when i power it up it comes up with a flashing folder with a question mark. my problem is that after i put in my OSXTiger

My kernal panics we RAM related, if possible, make sure they are seated properly. The ? means it can't find a bootable start up drive. If you have another mac, join it by firewire and start up the new mac, holding down the letter "T" key. then see if you can start up from that disk (now in "Target mode" using System Prefferences -> Start up disk. Then run Disk Repair from Utilities -> Disk Utility. This might help. Otherwise it might be a logic board problem.

No Pogo for Mac OS x 10.3.9

If the maintainers of the Pogo site have imposed a minimum OS release requirement on their service, and you can't meet it, that's all she wrote I'm not sure what sort of help you expect. Complain to the site operators that their limitations have cost them your business. If they ignore you, you're out of luck
