Try quitting your AOL application, and also try turning your computer off for awhile. Maybe AOL will reconfigure itself. Or call the AOL helpline-800-827-6364

Why can't I send or forward e-mails?

A question that has many specific answers depending on your mail server. They are the ones who set the rules, and each one is a little different. I will try to walk you through the General steps, but you will need to fill in the specific information that your email provider requires.

I am attaching an image that will help you visualize along with the steps. The image starts at Step 2. Warning, some of the specifics have changed in Yosemite vs some of the older operating systems ( I am using Yosemite ) My information is obfuscated to protect myself.

A. Mail App Open
1. Click on Menu Bar: Mail: Drag down to Preferences and let go. B.1. Prefferences Dialog
2. select Accounts
3. Click on the Dropdown "Outgoing Mail Server SMTP" lis
B.2 Dropdown List
4. Select "Edit SMTP Server List..."
C. SMTP Info Pane Account info Tab
5. Select email account you are having an issue with 6. Description is optional, but helpful for most people Name it accordingly 7. Server name. Will probably be something like "" or 8. Select on the "Advanced" Tab D. SMTP Info Pane Advanced Tab
9. You need a Port Number. You can have the system Choose for you, as there are typical port numbers 25 for Non SSL and 465 for SSL are a couple of them (there are others) If your email server wants a non-typical port number uncheck the "Automatically detect..." (may be different on older OS's)
for example, my work email requires a 26, this is atypical.

10. Authentication. Many email services require it. Usually these days it is "Password" (Not shown) in this case, it is probably your email address and the account password. (but not necessarily) sometimes it is formed as instead of

Sorry for keeping this so General, however, not any other way to do it without your specific information. Which you do NOT want to offer on the open web any way, hence my information obfuscated in the attached image.

Best of Luck!

How do i get steam to work?

well, the first thing you do, with a computer glitch, is try restarting the computer. if it worked in the past, and it ceased working, could be that you will have to do a restore/time machine.

if steam has never worked, it could be that your firewall is blocking the connection to steam server.

i am actually not a mac person, im a pc tech. the only real reason im getting involved is because i am impressed by your use of a video clip.

i just see too many people fail to get any help, because their questions are lacking in specifics, so, i wanted to give you props for trying to be thorough.

steam is only compatible with osx 10.58, 10.6X and 10.7 (all); however, it likely wouldnt have installed, or would give a specific message, if this were the case.

if we dont find a mac expert with an answer any time soon, you could always email steam support, in the meantime. i hate to do this, but, its just in case no one else has a faster, specific solution.

I have a panasonic pv-gs32 minidv camcorder and trying to figure out how to connect it to my new 27 in imac to create movies. do i need to download to dvd first or can I import video directly from camera?

You can import directly to your imac using usb or firewire. Connect the camera using either of the interfaces and then open up imovie in your applications folder. Once open go to the file menu and then down to import from camera and then your can import from the window that comes up. If you need any more information you can get video tutorials from the help menu. Hope this helps.
