SOURCE: on my imac the admin account shows safari fine,

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

SOURCE: cant print using Dell A920 printer on my imac

So clearly the Macintosh sees and recognizes the printer. WIll it let you queue a document to the printer? After you do, you will see an extra icon on the Dock that represents the printer queue. Open it up and see what is happening to the printer job. If it disappears, it was sent to the printer and the Mac thinks it was printer successfully; if it isn't printed then you have either a bad printer or a bad printer driver. If it stays in the queue and goes to "hold" state, look in the log to see what the error was -- the Mac is unable to negotiate with the printer to get your file printed.

On a mac where do I find the incoming mail server info to set up Mail for the first time


It depends on your mail account, but a search enginge can help you. For example, if you have a gmail address search online for "gmail incoming mail server" or if you are using charter search "charter incoming mail server" and one of the results should be able to tell you what words to put in the incoming mail server box.

It is usually something like "pop.mailserver.com" or something similar

It takes forever to get into my yahoo mail, then when I do it shows my emails for a quick second then dissapears!


The first thing you may try is to access your Yahoo! Mail in a different computer, to see if the same problem will occur.

If your Yahoo Mail work correctly on different computer, then the problem has something to do with your computer. Most likely, it's the internet browser. If the problem is within your computer, you may try to clear the cookies, cache, internet files, and/or browsing history of your browser. Here's how:

* For Internet Explorer:

1. Run Internet Explorer and click on 'Tools' menu.
2. Go to Internet Options and locate the Browsing History section.
3. Click the 'Delete' button and delete the Temporary Internet Files, Cookies and History.
4. Close the Internet Explorer and re-open it.
5. Access your e-mail.

* For Mozilla Firefox:

1. Run Firefox and hit 'Tools' menu.
2. Go to 'Clear Recent History' and click the drop-down arrow for 'Time range to clear'.
3. Select 'Everything' and then click the line beside details.
4. Check browsing & download history, form & search history, cookies, cache.
5. Click "Clear Now" button.
6. Close and re-open Firefox.
7. Access your e-mail.

* For Safari:

1. Open the Safari.
2. Click the Safari menu (right beside the Apple icon) and select "Empty Cache".
3. When asked "Are you sure you want to empty the cache?", click "Empty".
4. Click the Safari menu (right beside the Apple icon) then go to "Preferences".
5. From the security dialog box, click "Bookmarks".
6. Click on "Show Cookies" button and then hit "Remove All" button.
7. Select "Done".
8. Access your email.

Thank you and good luck!

it maybe because it might be a little problem. the mail incoming is currently not sending mail to the server, which mail recieves messages from. in order to solve the problem. you need to fix the settings. what is your mail provider?

IPhone sync with Outlook Calendar - Appointment time put on iPhone 1 hr later.


This solution pertains only to the one hour time difference people notice upon syncing to MS outlook.

In iPhone, there are two areas where you have an option to change your time settings.

1. When you go to 'settings', then to 'general', you can set up time and date, and also 12-24 hour format. Please note that changing the time here DOES NOT correct the problem, despite iPhone displaying correct date, time and time zone. Many people in this thread have stated that the problem persisted despite them setting appropriate time zone.

2. When you go to 'settings', then to 'mail, contacts and calendars' row (NOT the 'General' row) - you get an option to change your time zone at the very bottom of all the choices. You will see that wrong time zone is selected here - likely cause of the problem. Correct this choice and the one hour discrepancy between appointments in outlook and iPhone disappears.


Additional problem solutions - in the solution No. 2, if you set 'Time Zome Support' to 'ON', then all your appointments in the calendar will be displayed in the time zone of your HOME address. In other words, for example, if you are a person in central time zone, your appointments will be displayed ALWAYS in central time zone format - they will NOT change automatically when you travel from central time zone to eastern time zone. On the other hand, if you set the time zone support to 'OFF', then all your outlook appointment display times will change and adjust according to any time zone you travel to - This is often an inconvenience since most of us would like to remember our appointments as they were made in our home time zone, regardless of what time zone we traveled to.

Please note that the above solution pertains to only display of appoint times in outlook - This solution does NOT relate to the time displayed by iPhone and how that displayed time adjusts when you travel to different time zone away from your home time zone. This second issue is addressed below -

You can get your iPhone to display the current time in two ways -

1. Either always show the time in your home time zone, regardless of where you are (i.e., a person from Texas central time zone can set up to see the time always in central time, even if he/she travels to another time zone). This display setup is good for people who always think of time in their home time zone and then do mental conversions to reach at the local time zone time.

2. On the other hand, you can get iPhone to do this for you and change displayed clock time automatically to the local time zone that you have traveled to, away from your home time zone. Please note that enabling this capability in iPhone has no bearing on how the appointments are displayed in MS outlook.

Go to 'Settings'. Go to 'General' tab. then click on 'date and time'. Pick the 'set automatically' option to 'ON'. Now, the iPhone will automatically adjust displayed time to show the current time in which ever time zone you travel to.

If you set the 'set automatically' option to 'OFF', then you can select your home time zone. Then, the iPhone will always display time in your home city time zone and will NOT change even if you travel to a different time zone.

So, in summary, there are two places you need to adjust the time zones in iPhone - to do two separate tasks, first task of displaying appointments always in your home time zone upon syncing with outlook thereby avoiding the one hour skip; Second task of getting iPhone to display either your home time zone clock, or getting it to adjust current time to reflect the time in new time zone you travel to.

Hope this helps.
