Mail.App eMail Settings for OS X Mavericks

Having recently experinced several issues with the Mail App using outllook.com eMail accounts, I became frustrated after attempting the many different types of server settings suggestions foating around online, none of which seemed to fix the problem, in fact one particular server setting suggestion for the "Incoming server" (s.outlook.com) caused the Mail App to crashj on several ocassions.
Prior to installing this update, it is rocommened to back up your date.
1) Open the Mail App then select Mail--Preferences--then once the box opens, select the Blue @ icon for account information.
2) Select the last oprion
"Add other mail account"
3) Select the IMAP option and input your details, Name, email address and password.
4) INCOMING MAIL SERVER is
imap-mail.outlook.com
5) The 2 boxes, (Enable this account & Use only this server should both be ticked.
7) OUTGIONG SERVER
smtp.live.com
Port : 993
Use SSL : Ticked
Authentication : password
Use IDLE command if the server supports it : Ticked
All other boxes should be ticked.
I have several outllook email account, both outllook.com & outlook.com.au, and they all work pefectly now.

I have exactly the same settings done automatically but sometimes I just don't recieve the email. While my iPhone have recieved it a few hours earlier, my Mac with Mavericks haven't. I, sometimes, have to put the account offline and then back online in order to get new mail. Doesn't happen always but still does and it's quite boring.

  • The email message cannot be sent. Make sure the outgoing email settings for the server are configured properly

    i have an issue when loading a workflow. it gives me a following error "The email message cannot be sent. Make sure the outgoing email settings for the server are configured properly". it doesnt send me any alerts and worlflow fails at the end
    with the above error message.

    Hi,
    I agree with Bistesh. But after Outgoing e-mail settings are configured properly, if the issue still exists,
    It may result from your Anti-Virus. Please refer to the following steps:
    Open MCAfee Console and go to Access Protection window.
    Click Anti-Virus Standard Protection and edit “prevent mass mailing 
    worms from sending emails” rule.
    Now we need to know which processes are being blocked therefore we need to check the MCAfee Log located at
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\McAfee\DesktopProtection\AccessProtectionLog.txt
    you may find entries of DtExec , DtExecUI and DatabaseMail90, now these processes need to be entered in the exclusion list of selected rule .
    Reset the IIS And SharePoint Timer service to check if this works for you.

  • Why am I unable to edit messages in Mail App 7.0 on iMAC in Mavericks

    Why am I unable to edit messages in Mail App 7.0 on iMAC in Mavericks?

    Back up all data.
    Launch the Font Book application and validate all fonts. You must select the fonts in order to validate them. See the built-in help and this support article for instructions. If Font Book finds any issues, resolve them.
    From the application's menu bar, select
    File ▹ Restore Standard Fonts...
    You'll be prompted to confirm, and then to enter your administrator login password.
    Boot in safe mode to rebuild the font caches. Boot again as usual and test.
    Note: If FileVault is enabled on some models, or if a firmware password is set, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can’t boot in safe mode. In that case, ask for instructions.
    Also note that if you deactivate or remove any built-in fonts, for instance by using a third-party font manager, the system may become unstable.

    I also forgot to note that this problem also persists with the new iBooks application. I cannot get past the 'Get Started' screen or access the iBooks Store. Again, all top bar menus are unresponsive.

  • Constantly "checking for mail" and email settings freeze

    Since yesterday I've noticed that my mail app isn't showing any new emails and when I go in to it the "checking for mail" is continously running at the bottom and the internet spinning disc is spinning away.  I've tried switching it off and back on again (using the red slide bar) and new emails appear the first time it's restarted but only that once.
    I've got three POP3, a hotmail and Gmail account set up so thought I could try and disable them one by one to see which if any was causing the problem, but in settings going to the Mail, Contacts, Calendar option just freezes the screen.
    Have tried syncing with iTunes and a full reboot (home and power button together) but still no success. Also tried the suggestion made elsewhere about clearing the cache, closing all the open apps and doing a full reboot - unfortunately still without any joy.
    Internet and everything else seems to be working fine. Any other thoughts?

    I've experienced this a few times. The problem was some kind of deadlock related to my Yahoo mailbox. The workaround for me was to log into my Yahoo account via the web, create a folder, move my Inbox content to that folder, delete and re-add my Yahoo account on the iPhone client, check email (nothing to download), then via the web move all my inbox messages back from the temporary folder to the inbox. On the next reload of my Yahoo email Inbox all messages were displayed and the "Checking for Mail" hang resolved. A client issue perhaps.
    I seem to recall that this Checking for Mail condition would also block the ability to download email from other non-Yahoo email accounts.
    This may or may not be the same as your issue.

  • Email settings for Notes app

    Hello all, having a small issue with the Notes app and was wondering if anyone here had any info to share. When creating a new Note, it is automatically being emailed to one of the accounts that was setup using MobileMe. The problem here is that it is forcing one of those accounts to be selected and I cannot seem to find a setting that would only email a Note when the user wanted. Basically I can't find a way to shut off the auto-emailing feature...any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Notes can be associated with an email account (via Settings > Notes > Default Account). The option will only appear if you have one or more email account notes set up to be displayed in the Notes app and not in the Mail app - selecting an email account in Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars allows you to set whether the notes for it are 'on' (Notes app) or 'off' (Mail app)
    But they shouldn't be automatically emailed to your Inbox, they should just appear in a Notes folder on your email account

  • New SSL email settings for Apple Mail help please

    I too received the Verizon email settings notification but when I turn on ssl and change the server ports for incoming and outgoing mail to the correct ports...I get a connection error... the mail server "incoming.verizon.net" is not responding. When I change back to the original settings, it connects just fine. Anybody else having issues with Apple Mail on a mobile device I.e. iPad, iPhone?
    Solved!
    Go to Solution.

    I had the same problem setting up the new ports and SSL on an ipad. Restarting the ipad did not help. Turns out that the settings app needs to be turned off before incoming will work. For those that aren't familiar, double click the home button. All active apps will appear in a row across the bottom of the display. Press and hold any active app icon until they all start dancing and have a small red circle in the upper left corner with a minus sign in it. Release and then tap the app(s) you want to close.  

  • New email settings for Mac Mail & 3rd party...

    Anyone have instructions for new email port settings for users who are:
    -Using Mac Mail
    -Using third mail email service provider (i.e., not sending and receiving through a Verizon address)
    Thanks,
    Pardon me while I rant (I'm hoping a Verizon employee reads this)...
    I use my third party email account exclusively. It's listed on my verizon account page. So, does verizon do the logical thing and send announcements to my third party email address (?) - of course not, they send them to the verizon address which I have never once used in years.
    New port settings for some email users...
    I got a phone call from an automated Verizon attendant telling me to check the following for new port settings for some email users:
    http://www22.verizon.com/ResidentialHelp/HighSpeed/Email/Setup+And+Use/QuestionsOne/124333.htm
    I guess Verizon hasn't heard that there are millions of people using Mac computers, with Mac Mail as their email clients. And, some of these users are using obscure third party email service providers with names like 'Google'. On the above linked page, there are no instructions for these users.
    I tried to use the online live support feature to get a clarification about using the new port settings. A polite gentleman with a long Indian name told me he couldn't help me and gave me an 800 number to call. After calling the 800 number, a nice lady in the Philippines (on a terrible voice connection) told me she couldn't help me - she transferred me to another department where I waited and waited and waited. I finally had to hang up.
    I'm beginning to think that Verizon is a division of the United States Postal Service. Come to think of it, I get much better service from the USPS than I get from Verizon.

    Are you using the Mac Mail client or Verizon's netmail?

  • Mail app stopped working after upgrade to Mavericks

    Dear All,
    I have updated from Mountain Lion (Macbook Pro 3,1, 256SSD) to Mavericks, and mail app stopped working.
    That means - when I click the icon - the app does not work.
    I can see that it downloads mail - as when I click it I receive notifcation that it has downloaded some mail, however I cannot open window. Sometimes I manage to open it, but it is totally unresponsive - I cannot change or click anything in it.
    I have tried repairing disk permissions but without any success.
    Moreover if I run mail app and try to click "new message" from the top bar, the window that appears is somewhat mixed with my wallpaper backround (I can see fragments of it).
    Please help me, as I had there a few gigs of precious mails that I don't want to lose...
    Thank you in advance!
    Olek

    Do a backup.
    Take notes of all account information or take screen shots. You may need to set the accounts up again. Quit Mail.
    Copy the line below.
    ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.mail
    Select Go/Go To Folder from the Finder menu bar. Paste the line into the window. You won’t see it.
    Move the folder com.apple.mail to your desktop. You must move the entire folder, not just the contents.
    Relaunch Mail and test. If the problem is solved, recreate any required Mail settings and import any emails you want to save from the folder on the desktop. If the problem remains, return the folder to where you got it replacing the one that is there. 
    Information learned from Linc Davis.
    If you prefer to make your user library permanently visible, use the Terminal command found below.
    Show User Library Directory in Mac OS X 10.7 Lion & 10.8 Mountain Lion
    You might want to bookmark the command. I had to use it again after every update. I have also been informed that if you drag the user library to Finder it will remain visible.

  • Automatically create iCal entry with an email alarm from a Mail.app email?

    Hi..
    Hope you can help?
    I want to set up iCal/Mail.app so that it automatically creates a new iCal entry in a specific calendar when an email is received that contains a date in the body of the message...
    Is there a way of doing this with Automator?
    This reason I am asking is that I am trying to put a link on my online store where people can click for a gift reminder email that will be sent to them on a date they specify in the body of their email.
    The link could pop-up a new email window pre-filled with Subject: 'Gift Reminder' and addressed to '[email protected]' They would be instructed to enter a single date in the text area and press Send...
    Then, when Mail.app receives the email, it would move it to a Folder called 'Gift Reminders' and automatically set up a new iCal entry that has an alarm to email the sender on that date with an email containing the Subject 'The Gift Reminder you Requested' etc and some different text in the body... It would be great if this could be set up to repeat annually also as the gift reminder is primarily for birthday gifts...
    Id there an Automator script / plug-in or way of making this happen??
    Any help greatly appreciated, though my knowledge of scripts / Automator etc is quite limited I am willing to try out any suggestions!
    Thanks,
    Jon.

    Tried a restart which showed 2183 emails unable to move which is kind of bonkers and had to quit Mail> restart and moving emails from search now appears to be working. Apple owes me about 500 hours of my life so far with Mavericks!
