I know macs are awesome for the drag and drop, but on firefox on a web based email it is still better to hit "browse" and then find your file that way when attaching to emails.

When i click onto outlook to select emails, the list of emails comes up, but when i try to select to open any of them nothing happens. Then after about 5 seconds, the whole page goes blank?


Are you talking about outlook mail online? There hasn't been a version of outlook that runs natively on the Mac for over a decade.

If it's the web version, the first thing to try is another browser. If you're using safari, try chrome or firefox.

Tip

Mac OS X


Print Screen in Mac OS X
Unlike Windows, there is no print screen button on the Apple keyboard. Depending on what you want to capture, you can choose one of the following methods to simulate a print screen.
Capture the entire screen
Press [Command] + [Shift] + [3] and release.
Click any part of the screen with your mouse.
The screen capture is stored on your desktop in .PNG format.

Capture an application
Open the application you want to capture on screen.
Press [Command] + [Shift] + [4] and release.
The cursor will change to a +.
Press the [Spacebar]
The cursor will change to a camera.
Use the mouse (camera) to select the application.
Check your desktop for the picture.

Capture a portion of the screen
Press [Command] + [Shift] + [4] and release.
The cursor will change to a +.
Drag your mouse (+) to select the area you want to capture .
Check your desktop for the picture.

TIP: To copy the image on your clipboard instead of automatically saving it on the desktop, hold the [Ctrl] key along with [Command] + [Shift] + [4].

Show Hidden Files in Mac OS X
Open the Terminal application. You can find it under Applications -> Utilities. Type defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles Yes. Launch the Finder to see the hidden files. They are pre-fixed with a dot(.). Please be careful while changing anything in these files. The OS X uses them to manage the Mac.

Useful shortcuts
Use [Command] + [Space] to open the Spotlight search bar.
Use [Command] + [Option] + [Del] (Delete) to empty trash.
Use [Command] + [Q] to quit an application.
Use [Command] + [Option] + [Ctrl] + [8] to invert the colors on your Mac.

Dock Tips
Add an already open application to the dock: Press [Ctrl] + mouse click. From the context menu, select “Keep in Dock”
Add a closed application to the dock: Drag it from the Finder to the Dock. From the context menu, select “Keep in Dock”
Remove an application: Drag the item off the dock and it will disappear in the cloud of smoke From the context menu, select “Keep in Dock”
Resizing an application: Place the cursor over the vertical separator bar and right click the mouse.



Automator Basics
The Apple Automator application allows Mac OS users to automate the repetitive computer tasks by creating a workflow. A workflow is a series of actions that will be executed one after the other when executed. An action is the simplest unit of the Automator like Copy to Clipboard By combining actions from different applications in the drag and drop interface of the Automator, you can create your own applications and plug ins. Here is how it works.
  1. Open Automator.app from the Applications folder.
  2. You will see 4 panes: Library, Action and Help on the left; the workflow canvas on the right.
  3. You can search for actions by typing in the edit box located on the top left corner of the application.
Create a plug in for sending mail from the Finder

  1. Press [Command] + [N] to create a new workflow.
  2. Select Finder in the Library list.
  3. Select Get Selected Finder items.
  4. Drag it to the workflow canvas on the right.
  5. Now select Mail application in the Library List.
  6. Select Get New Mail.
  7. Drag it to the right window, below the Get Selected Finder Items box.
  8. Select the Add Attachment to Front Message from the Action pane and drop it as the last action on the workflow.
  9. You have just completed your workflow.
  10. Click the Run button on the top left corner of the screen.
  11. The Mail app will pop up. Close it and go back to the Automator application
  12. Open File > Save as a Plug-in. Type a name for the Automator plug-in.
  13. Open the Finder window and click on a file that you would like to send as an email attachment.
  14. From the context menu([Ctrl] + click), select Automator and then choose the workflow you just created.
  15. If you have your mail account set-up, you just need to type in the details of who you want to send the message to. You can now send attachments directly from your Finder window.

How to view full screen browser


In short, it's not built in to Safari. You can either install a plug-in for Safari or try a different web browser such as Firefox or Camino.

Some plugins that may help:
  1. Saft (http://haoli.dnsalias.com/Saft/index.html) adds a new preference pane in Safari called Saft, and two extra menu items under Safari menu, just above the "Preferences...", called "Full Screen" and "Max Screen".
  2. Megazoomer (http://ianhenderson.org/megazoomer.html) will install for any program (not just Safari for web browsing) and allows you to put any window full screen.
Other browsers to use instead of safari include:
  1. Firefox (http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/internet_utilities/mozillafirefox.html)
  2. Camino (http://caminobrowser.org/)
I believe both of those browsers allow for full screen functions.

Why wont my email messages on tagged open when i click on them


Are you using OS X Mail? Single-Clicking email messages will not open them in a new window, but will open them in the integrated viewer, which I believe is hidden by default. Try either showing the integrated message viewer (Click and drag up the grey bar with a dot in the middle, at the bottom of the screen), or double click the message.
Hope that helped!

I have a clip art image of desktop and want to transfer to an e-mail i'm sending. thanks


With Mac OS X Mail, this is really quite simple - all you have to do is either:
  • Click and drag the image from the desktop into the message writing window.
  • Or, click 'attach' and find the image you want. Click 'Choose File', and it will appear in your message - drag it around to wherever you want it.
Hope that helped!

I keep getting junk mail from same address. How do I block if I own a MAC? I don't seem to be able to permanently block an email address.


This depends on what mail client you are using. In Mac OS X Mail, you need to define a rule:
  1. Open up mail and go Mail -> Preferences
  2. Click on the 'Rules' tab
  3. Click 'Add Rule'
  4. Using the editor, make it so that if the email is From the spam address (Which you put in the box), that email message is deleted.
  5. Press OK. Mail may ask you if you want to apply that rule to email messages already in your mailboxes - press yes if you want them automatically deleted.
There are similar steps if you are using a different mail client - if you are, let me know and I'll try to guide you through the steps.
Hope that helps, good luck!

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.

Here is the easiest solution if you're using the "mail" application on your mac.
Put the files you want to send on your desktop, then open the message that you are trying to send while still being able to see your desktop with the files you want to attach.. now drag those files onto the open message. that should work.
If you're not using mail.. message me back. also If this doesn't work, tell me what are the file extensions your using as well as file sizes and the email client you're using.
hope that helps
