2 MACs - Can I use .mac to sync POP emails from MAIL when traveling

I use Yahoo Business (POP) email with the MAC MAIL software. I use a PowerBook G4 at home and just got a new iBook G4 for travel. I want to set up the travel computer and MAIL to receive and send mail while on the road. 2 Questions:
1) In a perfect world: I want to sync the emails (both sent and received) I worked with on the road with my home computer so I don't have to re-do the work I just did on the road. Can I use .mac to sync my mailbox folders before downloading the messages at home or will this corrupt the library file and make me rebuild my folders every time? I know I can set up the MAIL account to leave the received message on the server for my home computer to download, but this causes a lot more work!
2) If (1) is not possible, how can I capture the files I sent on the road to my home computer SENT folder? I save all sent messages at home.

Via the .Mac website, you can have .Mac check the POP account's incoming mail server to download received messages from the POP account to your .Mac account's Inbox mailbox.
In the interim, send a change of email address to all contacts providing your .Mac email address and start sending messages with your .Mac account.
When creating a .Mac account in Mail - Drafts, Sent, Trash and Junk messages are stored on the server by default along with received messages. If you want to keep all these mailboxes/messages synchronized with Mail on both Macs, make sure these settings for the account are the same with Mail on both Macs.

  • HT4623 Can I use Ituenes to sync my email addresses to my Iphone?

    Can I use Itunes to sync my email addresses from my PC to my Iphone?

    You should be able to import your contacts from AOL into either Outlook (if you have that) or Windows Contacts. You may also be able to import them to iCloud if you use that. Check to see if there is a help file on AOL that would assist you with that. I do not use AOL so I am unfamiliar with the way they store their address book. Maybe someone else that uses it can answer your question. You also might want to search the discussions and use the keywords AOL and address and see if that helps you.

  • When using Back to my Mac can I use a local printer to print from the remote Mac?

    When using Back to my Mac to access an iMac from a MacBookPro all with the latest OS updates may I use a local printer connected to the MacBook to print a document located on the iMac?  If so, how?  It looks like if I try to print it will all happen on the iMac.  Thanks.

    The problem is that when in screen sharing mode the print command is executed on the remote computer.
    I appreciate that, but it will still list the printer in your local location if things are set up properly and if it is you can print, if it isn't you can't, but you should be able to print it as a pdf, transfer the file to your local computer and print it from their.

  • Syncing 7 pushing POP email from my mac to iPhone with Mobile ME

    I was under the impression that the mobile sync function in iphone 2.0 would allow me to push my pop email in Mail, calenders, and contacts on my mac to my iphone. I soon realized that I would have to subscribe to Mobile to accomplish this. Though now I have subscribed to mobile me all I am able to do is push calenders and contacts from my mac and not my pop email from Mail. Am I correct in saying this is not possible? Why would Apple leave this function out of mobile sync? I was able to do this on my MotoQ with Microsoft active sync! Any help?

    The MobileMe sync function is for a MobileMe account only.
    I wasn't aware that ActiveSync allowed for syncing with non-Exchange accounts.
    You can have MobileMe check the incoming mail server for a POP account, or you can have your POP account forwarded to your MobileMe account or email address. The problem with this is when replying to or forwarding a message received from another account, the message will be sent from your MobileMe account.
    The Mail.app on your Mac includes a Reply To field for entering a different email address to appear as the email address to be used by a recipient when replying to a received message from another account, but the iPhone's Mail client does not include a Reply To field for the message header. With the Mail.app, I believe this muse be entered manually for each message.

  • I have a .mac email address, can i use this as a regular email address?

    I have a .mac email address which i set up for ichat (ages ago) how can i use this as a regular email address in an email client? Is there SMTP/POP details?

    With the introduction of iCloud, Apple has discontinued its "@mac.com" addresses support and has switched to Users using "@me.com" suffixes.  To utilize this you will need to setup an iCloud account with a new Apple ID. And Apple discontinued iChat and has switched to Messages.app, using Apple ID's.
    Hope this helps

  • My iPod touch has 2 Notes account: 'Gmail' and 'From my Mac'. Now I know where my 'Gmail' notes are synced on my mac but I've no idea where my 'From My Mac' notes are synced on my mac. Mine is a Mac Book Air using Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5

    My iPod touch has 2 Notes account: 'Gmail' and 'From my Mac'.
    Now I know where my 'Gmail' notes are synced on my mac but I've no idea where my 'From My Mac' notes are synced on my mac.
    Mine is a Mac Book Air using Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5.
    Any ideas?

    Go step by step and check.
    1. Start up in Safe Mode.
    2. Backup your computer.
    3. Empty Trash.
    4. Re-index Macintosh HD.
        This will take a while. Wait until it is finished.
        System Preferences > Spotlight > Privacy
    5.Try OmniDiskSweeper. This will show the storage size details of the items.
       Select Macintosh HD and click  “Sweep Selected Drive” at the bottom.
       Be careful. Delete only the files that can be safely  deleted. If you are not sure about any file, don’t touch it.

    Can I use Mac Dictate to convert voice memos to text?

    If by "Mac Dictate", you mean the built in speech-to-text feature, no, you can't use that to convert a voice memo, at least not easily. Speech-to-text is designed to work on live speech, not recordings. But, there's no harm in trying.

  • Downloaded mavericks for one mac can i use the same download to install on another mac

    I have downloaded for 12 hours initial installation on one mac for mavericks, and all installed successfully. Rather than download again for another mac, can I use the same download and copy on to the other mac..and if yes, where will I find it?

    All you need to do is go to System Preferences > App Store and uncheck the automatic install of updates box, then download the Mavericks installer, and copy to a flash drive.  You will need a flash drive of 8 G B or more since the installer is around 5.3 GB.  The installer will be in Finder > Applications.  You can then copy that flash drive installer to the Applications folders in all the Macs you have that are capable of running Mavericks, http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5842.
    When the installer runs, the last step in the installtion is for the installer to erase itself.  So makng a copy before the installer runs is essential if you want to avoid redownloading.
    Installing from the same installer does not cause problems for Macs on the same network.

    Using Time Machine, or any other such program, to transfer Adobe software from one machine to another works probably less than five percent of the time. Uninstall from your new machine. Run the cleaner tool (do a search for Cleaner Tool on this site if you don't know what it is). Then reinstall properly from original media or downloads.
