One "partial" solution is to use your "home" Internet Service Provider's "Web Mail" service.

For example, try 'webmail.verizon.net' or 'webmail.roadrunner.com'.

You'll be able to access all the "new" E-mail that arrives while you are "away" from your "home" computer, but none of the E-mail that was stored on your "home" computer _before_ you went away.

The other solution is to use the "Remote Desktop Protocol" to "logically" connect your Mac's keyboard & mouse & screen, over the Internet, to your "home" computer, rather than using the "physically-connected" keyboard & mouse & screen.

You would have to:
1. leave your "home" computer powered-on all the time that you're away;
2. either connect your home-computer directly to your cable-modem or DSL-modem, or to use "port-forwarding" on any router that is "between" your home computer(s) and your modem, to direct all "Remote Desktop" connection-attempts to one specific computer on your home network.
3. be "security-conscious" -- exposing your computer to "accept" a Remote Desktop connection means that any computer-hacker will try to login with your ID & password to your computer, over the Internet.
4. have a "Remote Desktop Protocol" client piece of software on your Mac.

I have Mac computers in my home. So does this mean that I cannot use your web site for solutions?


Hi Erna - Fixya does not send emails asking you download anything.

The Fixya website should work just fine on your Mac using your favorite web browser. If you have any additional questions, please leave a comment and I will be more than happy to help you troubleshoot further.

Hope that helps!

This can be caused my many different problems, my best guess as the pc was on while away is that you may have a virus. If you have anti virus do a complete scan with updated virus definitions. Also check that your hard disk is not full. If you need detailed instructions or these suggestions did not clear the problem please post back.

Please rate this solution if it has helped you.

That message means it is not reading a drive. Most likely the HDD. I would suggest you replace the HDD. That is likely the problem.

Setting an automatic vacation response
Going on vacation? No access to the Internet? No problem! Use Gmail's vacation responder to let people know you won't be able to get back to them right away. You can set up a vacation response in your Gmail settings that will automatically reply to anyone who emails you. While the vacation responder is enabled, Gmail will send a response to anyone who contacts you.* If that person contacts you again after four days and your vacation responder is still enabled, Gmail will send another vacation response to remind the person that you're away from your email.
Here's how to let people know you can't respond right away:
  1. Sign in to Gmail.
  2. Click Settings along the top of any Gmail page.
  3. From the General tab, select Vacation responder on in the Vacation responder: section.
  4. Enter the subject and body of your message in the Subject: and Message: fields.
    • If you've enabled a personalized signature in your settings, Gmail will automatically append it to the bottom of your vacation response.
  5. Check the box next to Only send a response to people in my Contacts if you don't want everyone who emails you to know that you're away from your mail.
  6. Click Save Changes.
While the vacation responder is enabled, you'll see a banner across the top of any Gmail page, displaying the subject of your vacation response. To stop Gmail from automatically sending the response, click end now within the banner. Or, if you'd like to edit the response, click vacation settings.
  • Keep in mind that your vacation response will start over each time you edit it -- if someone receives your initial vacation response, and then emails you again after you've edited the subject or body of the message, he or she will receive the edited response, too.
* Messages classified as spam and messages addressed to a mailing list you subscribe to will not receive a vacation response.
