Question about Apple iMac G4 Desktop

IMac very unstable on 10.4.11

My iMac has become very unstable since upgrading to 10.4.11. For example, an opened email will often close and mail quit without warning. Safari will also quit erratically, for no obvious reason. Also, I cannot sometimes open downloads and repair devices such as disc utility will not open, so I cannot do much fault tracing. Your advice would be much appreciated.

    WOW, five days of despairing struggle, over in a flash [well almost a flash!]. I used the installer disk for Tiger and the major problem disappeared. After using disk utility etc., I am facing up to reinstalling printer et al. but at least emails and applications are opening and life is back to what passes for normal for me.  
            I have a sneaky feeling that i may be back to fixya.com, if disaster strikes.

The disk utility program is the key. You need to run the app to repair disk permissions. You may have to start up from the installer disk for Tiger to get access to the program.

How do I put my email address (already on my ipad) on to my applemac main computer?


I believe you will need to manually set up your email program on your apple main computer by entering the correct email settings.
Under the Mail menu select the drop down listing called Accounts.
Select the mail service you wish to use, for example Gmail.
Double click on the mail service icon and it will open into a screen where you enter all of your settings include your email address. If you have not used your apple mac computer before for email, you will also have to fill in information on the web address of your mail server, you password, etc.

If you wish to ready you email on both you desktop mac and your ipad, I recommend you select the IMAP protocol (not POP) for email service which let's you see your email on either device whether you have already looked at a message or not.

Why does my new iMac not recognize my gmail account?


John you may need to go into your "settings" on your iMac and configure your gmail account there.

look for the Settings icon on your workspace
click and look for Mail
Open mail and you should see Accounts and further down a choice to "add account"
Then choose which mail application you want to use, Google mail, yahoo, etc.
open google or gmail and type in your info.
These settings should get you started to use your gmail.

Give it a try.

Copystar CS-C3225 color copier scanner. The Scan to Email quit working. It says Unable to find SMTP server. A Windows box and an iMac print to this. We updated the driver on the iMac for this and n


Updating a driver would not affect the mail server settings. could be a firewall issue but i doubt it. is the smtp server on your lan or are you using a hosted mail solution? the only things that matter there are the ip address of the smtp server, authentication, ssl (or not), port numbers, default from address, dns settings, and message size. the mail function is totally independent from you computers operation unless an on site server or workstation is hosting the smtp server.

Why can't I open email on my iMac but can open it with my Windows laptop?


Hi Michael
Email on your iMac is accessed through Apple Mail application.
OR... Using a Browser to access the Email Server.
Try Opening
MAIL / Preferences / Accounts / Account Information.

There may be incorrect info in here.
Best to write the settings down on paper OR
CMD SHIFT 4 This takes a snapshot of a "cursor selected area" and saves it to the desktop. (Cmd Sh 3 does whole screen)
Check both Incoming & Outgoing Settings
If necessary (e.g. corrupt settings) you can Delete the email account & start clean
Add a New Account. A new Account will pre test the connection and put tick marks ? to indicate a good connection.
You can get the correct settings from your Win Laptop
Good Luck

SUDDENLY LOST MOST OF MY EMAIL CONTACTS ON BOTH MY COMPUTERS


Hi, it seems like you are using IMAP protocol for your mail settings. The good thing about IMAP is that you can see the same emails listing for your imac, and your macbook. The bad thing about IMAP is that when you accidentaly delete emails on whatever computer, the others won't see them either.
Please check in Mail's trash folders for all your computers, and check if the mails were not simply moved to another folder

Hi, just to clarify you are trying to consolidate all of your email to the Mail.app program on your Mac, correct? It's not too tough and I'll let you know a secret. Yahoo normally doesnt allow you to do this without being part of their pay program but they launched "IMAP" support for all free clients. 
The first thing you need to do is open your Mail program (The one on your dock at the bottom of the screen). Then click Mail>Preferences> Then click the + sign in the bottom left hand corner.
Put in your name, your yahoo email account (Example AKeech@yahoo.ca) and password. Uncheck Automatically setup my account and click next.
Click the drop down box that says POP and choose IMAP. Replace the info under incoming mail server with imap.next.mail.yahoo.com. Click next.
Check the SSL box and click next again.
Under description put yahoo Replace the information in Outgoing email server with smtp.next.mail.yahoo.com. Put in your email address (remember the @yahoo) and password one more time and click continue. Click continue again, confirm your information and click create.
Your done and your email is good to go.
