When I try to change the preferences in the Mail program for Macintosh (System 10.4), I get the following message: Writing your preferences to disk has failed. Your preferences may not have been saved. The permissions on ~/Library/Preferences may be wrong or your disk may be full. What can I do about it? Charles Relle (mrelle@btinternet.com)

SOURCE: E MAILS FAIL TO GO

Dear Geoff, There can be multiple reasons for this. When you reply and error shows up it can be:

a) Your internet speed is slow and your email client has not been able to send your message.
b) Check the email address you're sending the email too. Recipient email address can be full.
c) Check your email settings to ensure that your outgoing and incoming mail servers are working.
d) If you are still facing problems maybe you can make new email address on relatively more user friendly websites like Yahoo, Hotmail or Expedia.com.

If thats helpful kindly press solved.

SOURCE: copying e.mail messages on a CD

If you make a backup copy you can put it on a disk/CD to restore afterwards if needed. If you just want to move them to a different area but still look at them due to space, you can change where the store is located. Or have you tried setting up personal folders and moving emails to the folders to organize? You could archive by month for example.

I assume you already did the typical Microsoft backup procedure:

Do you have a full version of Outlook? You could try exporting from Express to Outlook.

Is that what you need?

I have always been using Nero burn software with my LG GSA-2166D DVD RW. Now I bought Nero Multimedia Suite 10. No any writing process has been successful. I have since yesterday spoiled 10 DVD's....


speed of source data is too slow = the hard disk cannot deliver the data fast enough and the burning process stops; this is a sign of a severely fragmented file system and very charged background processes: defragment your hard disk, stop using other programs when burning a disk and use 8X as a recording speed.
 Track Following Error = the laser head in the burner is no longer capable of following the track it has itself burned - the lens is dirty, clean it.

Mac os x 10.4 tiger system preferences won't launch ? in place of icon in dock


Try this:

• Open a new Finder window and select Library from your Home Folder
• Select the Preferences folder.
• Locate and remove to the Trash,
com.apple.preferences.plist
• Now click on the back arrow in the upper left corner of your
window- this will take you back to the Library window.
• Now locate and remove the folder entitled "Caches"

-Close all windows and then click on the blue Apple menu icon and select from the drop down menu, Logout<username>.

• this will take you to the main login window. Simply log back in and before you attempt to launch System Preferences, run Disk Utility first:

font.f1 {font: 13.0px Myriad Pro} -RUN DISK UTILITY FIRST-

Go to Finder Menu bar
• Click Go > Utilities > Disk Utility and open up Disk Utility app.
• Click on Macintosh HD volume (or on the name you have changed
this volume to.)
• Select "Repair Disk Permissions"
**Let Disk Utilities run this repair permissions until completion
(This is not often a necessary step, but in the many of the hands-on software and Mac OS X troubleshooting I have done on Macs, I almost always run it just because it does repair alot of the permissions on files which can sometimes affect how certain applications, files and folders work. It also improves your Mac's performance a bit too:)

Once Disk Utility is complete and there are no errors in red in the completion summary (if there are errors listed in red, re-run DU to see if those error will clear- if they don't reply back to this post right away and let me know what the exact error message is), quit Disk Utility.

• Relaunch System Preferences.

Let me know if this helps resolve the issue.

How to scan to email


dear customer,
these are some of the ways to do it.. hope its useful..
VistaScan - Scan to Email

VistaScan's direct email link requires either a MAPI (Microsoft Exchange compatible system) or VIM (Lotus cc:Mail system) messaging program - these are commonly used on corporate networks and aren't installed on normal consumer PCs - home and small business users can scan-to-email via PageManager or by attaching images as described below.

vsemailsetup.gif
VistaScan 3.1 scan-to-email preferences for the commercial MAPI and VIM messaging systems - to reduce the size of file attachments the JPEG file format is recommended.
MAPI programs include Microsoft Outlook 97 and 98 (which can also be used with normal Internet mail accounts) and the latest Netscape Messenger client.

Outlook 98 is a commercial software package (not included with Windows), with support for Internet mail systems, Exchange Server or Lotus cc:Mail messaging servers. outlook98.gif
VistaScan 3.1 application used with Microsoft Outlook 98 - scan-to-email is selected as the destination for the image When VistaScan is used with either a MAPI (Exchange) or VIM (ccMail) mail system it will detect the presence of the software via the Windows registry and automatically launch the client and a new message window, with the single file attached - the message must then be written and sent before the scanner driver can be used again.


Sending images to Email Clients using Presto PageManager 4.0

Presto PageManager is a useful way to capture and archive scans before sending them to another program (eg image editor, word processor) or to print. A few email programs can be linked with PageManager, allowing an image to be "dropped" on a Application Button to automatically open a new message with the scan attached. Microsoft Outlook 98, Netscape Messenger (aka Netscape Mail), Lotus cc:Mail and Eudora Pro 3.0 can all be added as email applications - Outlook Express, Compuserve and AOL cannot be directly linked (these are limitations of the mail programs, not of PageManager!).
pmoutlookbutts.gif comm46butt.gif OutLook Express cannot link with PageManager - a new email won't be opened when selected. PageManager adds an Outlook Express button automatically. Outlook 98 will correctly open a new email and attach the scan(s). PageManager won't setup Outlook 98 automatically, it needs to be Registered as a new application. Netscape Mail will correctly open a new mail with attached scans when selected. The Application Button is setup automatically by PageManager.
Preparing Files for Email Clients

As many Internet email programs do not support Exchange or cc:Mail, the two commercial mail systems integrated with UMAX software, you may have to prepare your scans: the images to be sent need to be saved on your hard disk in a suitable file format, ready to be "attached" to an email.

In general it is better to send as small a file as possible by email, as the image has to be transferred to the Internet over a relatively slow modem link - most users prefer a compressed file format such as JPEG (.jpg). This compresses your scan to a fraction of the original size, although it does slightly reduce the quality of the images.

There are three ways you can save your scans to disk:

1. If you use the VistaScan program (Start, Programs, VistaScan 3.x, VistaScan) you have several choices in the "Scan To" box (Advanced mode).

vsscantofile.gif
Click on the Floppy Disk icon - this will then use the settings in the VistaScan preferences:

vsscanfileprefs.gif
For emailing scans we recommend the JPEG format - check where the scans will be saved (which directory). File names are created automatically - scan1.jpg, scan2.jpg etc.

2. If you normally scan your images in to PageManager you can export them to your hard disk - right-click on the thumbnail view and choose 'Save As...':
pmsavepic.gif
Choose a file location and select the "Save as type" file format.

3. If you are aquiring the VistaScan driver via any other application (eg Adobe PhotoDeluxe) then you should have options to save the images and to change their formats - please refer to the instructions for each application for for further advice.


Attaching images to an Email

All email client programs will allow you to combine file atachments and your text in to a single message for sending - although there are small differences in the way attachments are encoded you normally only need to customise options if sending to someone with an Apple Mac, which supports slightly different graphics file formats. Below are instructions for attaching files in some of the more common email programs:


America OnLine (AOL) (3.0I)

In the Email menu choose Compose Email (Ctrl+E):
aol.gif
At any time while you write and address your email you can click on the Attach icon on the left of the window - this then lets you select the files to be sent.

Compuserve (CIS) (4.0)

In the Compuserve program choose "Create New Mail" from the Mail menu:
cis.gif
During writing and addressing your mail message you can click on the button "Attach File:" - this lets you browse your computer to select the scans to be sent. To make finding the files easier, change the "Files of type" setting to "Graphics Files". Once the files are selected Compuserve shows a second window of encoding options - the default (Binary) will be suitable for almost all emails.

Microsoft Outlook Express

Outlook Express is one of the most common Internet mail clients, and is included with many Windows 98 systems and on ISP disks - this basic mail program also lets you attach files to your emails. Click on the Compose Message button:
outlookexpress.gif
While writing your email message you can click on the paper clip icon (shown above) or choose "File Attachment..." from the Insert menu.

Netscape Mail / Netscape Messenger (Communicator 4.6)

The most recent version of Netscape Mail can be linked to PageManager or the VistaScan driver, however many users want to attach scans in the normal way - click the New Msg button to open a Composition window:
comm46.gif
While writing your email message click on the Attach button and choose File... - locate and select your scans.

No synchronization when Outlook express is default mail program


Email synch is based on current MAPI preferences. The problem you have is that the VersaMail conduit assumes your mail client must be the MAPI default email client. You could adopt another profile in Outlook instead of OExpress which picks up the account you use in OE. This is the first instance of this problem I have ever heard of so I doubt if PalmOne would make a software change on this.

"Disk is unreadable" message when inserting a CF Card - Macintosh OS 9.x


Certain system software is needed to allow a Macintosh (running Macintosh OS 9.x or earlier) to access mounted compact flash cards. If this required software is not installed the computer will not be able to recognize the card and will display the following error: DO NOT press the "Initialize" button, as this will completely erase the card and destroy all images. Click the "Eject" button and then enable the necessary system software. The following Extensions or Control Panels need to be activated: File Exchange - Control Panel Foreign File Access - Extension The "Extensions Manager" Control Panel (found under the "Apple" menu) can be used to enable these items. After switching them "On" restart the computer to apply the changes. After restarting the computer insert the card and it will mount on the desktop like any removable disk.
