Question about Apple iMac G4 Desktop

1 Answer

We're using a MAC in a condo rental. I don't think my e-mails are being RECEIVED although they're marked as SENT. I have sent out a few to test this asking recipients to just return with a YES if they receive them. No response.

If you are using Apple's Mail app, go into Mail's preferences, click on Accounts, select your provider in the left-side list, and be certain that your Outgoing Mail Server setting (SMTP) is set properly, i.e. set to the ISP that you are actually using to connect to the internet. If you recently moved, more than likely the SMTP setting is still using your previous providers SMTP address. Good Luck :)

Is my yahoo mail account corrupted? Recent mail sent from my account are not opening. Also same as YahooMessenger mail sent to me!


Your yahoo mail is not corrupt. You can send mail.... try sending a test mail to another account...NOT YAHOO, ex: hotmail or your friend. Have them confirm they received the email and can open it.

If they can open it, then it's something on yahoo side. Try this and let's see what happens,

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?

Retrieve a sent email


Depends if you are using the mail client .. if you are .. you can just go to the sent folder.

If you used a web browser to send your mail, just log into your account and go to sent mail as well.

Mails sent do not reach their destination. It appears in the Outlook sent as sent.


To check the exact reason - we have to follow few steps one by one as follows.

Due to following reasons mails may not reach their destinations,

Other End Problems
1. Email address typed is wrong or does not exist.
2. There is problem with the email address - like inbox capacity is full, incoming mail server is down.
3. Recipient received the email not in inbox rather in bulk/junk box - so tell him/her to check junk/bulk box.
4. Your email address is blocked by them (recipients).

Your End problem
-------------------------
5. You have not clicked the option "Server Authentication" or other configuration problem you made.
6. There is virus problem in your computer creating malfunction for outgoing emails.
7. Your outgoing server problem.

So I am guiding how to check all points one by one tactfully to detect exact reason.

First verify the email address you typed - then you send email to the same email address from your different email.
Try to use same mail server (your end) for checking as some time few black listed mail servers are there.
You request the recipient to check the bulk/junk box - or send email waiting few hours.
Tell the recipient whether your email is blocked or the domain of your email address (as yahoo.com is domain of email lina@yahoo.com).

Now this is the very important point out of the all points - please consult with your mail server admin and check whether you have checked the Server Authentication Required option in mail client software like Outlook Express.
You please configure the same email in different computer (virus free) - try the same.
Wait few ours and send to other email addresses - and check.

I think you may easily rectify the problem.
Happy Computing.
I think I have been able to answer to solve the problem. Many Many thanks for using Fixya.

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.

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 am having receiving problem


I am not sure exactly if what I did solved the problem.
The main thing was I deleted messages from my in, sent, spam & finally emptied trash. But it didn't seem to have made a change yesterday.
Today I received a message from yoy (Fixya), I then tested it and it seems to be working fine.

Maybe a routine night job by Yahoo permenantly removed my deleted messages and created space.
If this is possible please let me know.

Emails not reaching destination although they are in 'sent box'


Hello,
This can be due to your destination server's security settings that are set to reject incoming Yahoo emails, that were largely used by spammers in the past years.
What you can do is call the person you are trying to reach by email, and ask him if there was any security settings set by his company or ISP.
Frequently companies are using "blacklists" in order to block junk mail. You are then in a "false positive" situation that is hard to solve. Try to send from another email adress to see if that still happens.
Hope this helps
