How to delete e.mail out of recycle bin


Deleted emails do not go to the Recycle bin. They're moved to a folder called 'Trash' or 'Deleted Items'. So, if you want to delete the emails completely, you can delete all emails that are listed in these folders. In order to do that, you'll just have to login to your email, click on the folder named 'Trash' or 'Deleted Emails'. That will show you a list of all the emails that you've deleted recently. Select all emails and click on delete to remove them permanently.

If you use an email client like MS Outlook, you can just right click on the 'Deleted items' folder and select the option 'Empty Deleted Items folder'.

How to Speed up a Slow Mac


Apple Mac computers can also become slow and sluggish with time and use. So here I will show you four methods to speed up your old-slow-mac.

Method 1: Free up hard drive space
You might have stored many huge video files, thousands of photos and music tracks on our Mac computer. The popularity of using solid-state drives (SSDs) of Mac computers means considerably less capacity than traditional hard drives.

1. Find the large media files on your Mac, delete the unused videos, apps, photos, etc. Or you can move all of them to an external hard drive, and remove them from your Mac.

2. Empty your trash cans, say the user account's main trash can and the iPhoto/iMovie/Mail trash can.

3. Remove junk files from your old Mac, MacClean is the way to go. It helps removing Internet junk, user junk, system junk and application junk on your hard drive.http://www.imobie.com/macclean/

Method 2. Free up more RAM

Most Macs ship with between 4GB and 16GB of RAM. If your Mac has only 4GB or 8GB RAM, the system might be running low when launching programs or loading document.
Step 1. Open up Terminal: ~/Applications/Utilities.
Step 2. Enter the command: Purge, and tap the enter tab.
Step 3. Give your Mac a minute or two to complete the process.
Open up Activity Monitor to see the before and after results, you'll find the Free size increases in System Memory.

Method 3. Kill Unwanted login items

Step 1. Open up System Preferences, and click the Users & Groups.
Step 2. Click the Login Items tab, and you'll see a list of apps that open every time you turn on Mac.
Step 3. Select the login items you want to kill, and click the "-" button to remove them.

Method 4. Clean up your desktop

1. Delete the files you don't need any more, and empty the Trash.
2. Classified the files on your mac, and move them to some folders.
3.Name the folder so that you can easily find the one you need. Why Is My Mac So Slow and How to Fix It

I'm having this problem in my nokia e5 : My memory


If the phone notifies you if the phone memory is getting low. To free phone memory you have the following options:
  • Move data that you want to keep to an alternative memory (mass memory or memory card, if available) or to a compatible computer.
  • Remove data you no longer need.
Use File Manager or the respective application in your phone to remove data or to move data to alternative memory as described in the user guide. Typically you first mark files to be removed or moved and then you select the corresponding option (Delete orMove to folder).

Use Nokia Ovi Suite to move data to a compatible computer.
In order to free phone memory, you could remove or move the following:
  • Messages from Inbox, Drafts and Sent folders in Messaging
  • Retrieved e-mail messages from the phone memory
  • Saved Web pages. Clear the web browser cache to free some phone memory (e.g. select Options > Clear privacy data >Cache).
  • Saved images, videos, or sound files (in Gallery, Photos,Videos or Music player)
  • Contact information (in Contacts)
  • Calendar notes (in Calendar)
  • Downloaded application packages
  • If there are applications which are not needed any more, uninstall them with Application Manager
  • Any other data that you no longer need
If you are deleting multiple items and any of the following notes are shown: Not enough memory to perform operation. Delete some data first or Memory low. Delete some data, try deleting items one by one (starting from the smallest item). After deleting data, restart (power off/on) your phone.
Tips: Use the memory card or mass memory instead of phone memory in the Camera or other applicable applications in case the selection is available (e.g. via Options > Settings >Memory in use).

I hope this helps!!

I have 3 mail accounts on my Outlook. two are working fine but my AOL account has a funny glitch all of a sudden. if i try to delete an email from my inbox it just puts a line through it but leaves it...


Hi,

With the AOL account you have setup, it will not delete the email until you choose Edit>Purge>Purge Marked Items.

You can chage Outlook Settings so that you only see "undeleted" items by going to View>Current View>Hide Messages Marked for Deletion

You will however, from time to time, Purge the deleted items as advised above otherwise performance may deteriorate.

Hope that helps, Pls rate the solution

Cannot delete files from Maxtor Hard Drive on Mac


Hi Simon Is there a problem deleting or is it that you just don't know how to do it?
If it's the former you need to supply a bit more info. If it's the latter then it's very easy.
Highlight the file you want to delete, right-click and select move to trash (second item down).
This moves the file to the trash but doesn't delete it.
Next you can right-click on the trash icon in the dock and choose Empty trash or go to the finder menu and select empty trash from there. After that your files should have been deleted from the maxtor.
Simple eh?

Accdentally lost my mail kept in the trash


If you are using outlook express, it has a setting to permenently remove all messages in the deleted items box. If you want to use your deleted items until you select it for final deletion do this.open up your email program->TOOLS->OPTIONS->MAINTENANCE-> REMOVE THE CHECK MARK FROM THE FIRST BOX->APPLY->OK
Now if you are talking about your desktop you can right click on the trash can, open, and highlight the item you put in there by mistake, then right click again and click on restore. And that file will return to the place it came from.
Hope this answered you question.
Please leave a rating, thank you
