Mail doesn't work properly on my brand new MacPro

I receive mails with hours delay - if at all. Reading the Support Communities apparently it is not only me. I have hotmail, Gmail, exchange, ICloud mailadresses, same problem with all of them.
I downloaded airmail - no problems!!!!
Can anyone help me?? Please!
best regards

Back up all data.
Select all your mailboxes, and then select
Mailbox ▹ Export Mailbox...
from the Mail menu bar. Export the mailboxes to the Desktop folder.
Make a note of the settings for all your Mail accounts – everything you'd need to reconstruct the settings from scratch.
Quit Mail. Then select
 ▹ Force Quit...
from the menu bar. A small window will open with a list of running applications. Mail may appear in that list, even though you quit it. If so, select it and press return. Close the window.
In the Finder, hold down the option key and select
Go ▹ Library
from the menu bar. Move the following items from the folder that opens to the Desktop:
Application Support/AddressBook/MailRecents-v4.abcdmr
Containers/com.apple.mail
Containers/com.apple.MailServiceAgent
Mail
Note: you are not moving the Mail application. You’re moving a folder named “Mail.”
Launch Mail. It will behave as if you were setting it up for the first time. Go through the setup process with one of your accounts, using the information you noted earlier. Test. Same problem?
If there’s no improvement, quit Mail again and put back the items you moved to the Desktop, replacing any newer ones that may have been created in their place. You don’t need to replace the items you moved to the Trash.
If the issue is resolved, recreate the rest of your Mail settings, then import the mailboxes you exported:
File ▹ Import Mailbox...
This step should not be necessary with IMAP or Exchange mailboxes, because they synchronize automatically with the server. Nevertheless, if the mailboxes are very large, importing them may spare you the need for a long download.
Test. If Mail is still working, delete the items on the Desktop and close the Finder window.

  • Since updating to Mavericks, Mail doesn't work properly.  It just stops working (no error messages--it just won't check for new mail) and I must shut it down and reopen it to get it working again.  Any suggestions?

    Try to force quit the mail app
    Double tap the home button. When you see the app previews on the screen scroll sideways if needed to get the preview in question on the screen. Flick that preview up and off the screen to close the app. Single tap the home button or home screen preview to exit the mode.
    Failing that, go into the settings, mail, contacts and calendars and remove your account info then put it back in and see if that works

  • My Apple Mail doesn't work properly on a specific wifi network.

    When I'm on a friend's wifi network with my Macbook, Apple Mail doesn't refresh and get new mail. However, all the other internet functionality works just fine on the laptop.
    This is specifically the only wifi network that doesn't let my Apple Mail connect to Gmail. Apple mail works properly on any other wifi network.
    Are there specific network settings I need to check on the wireless router?

    Hello hi_team,
    And welcome to Apple Discussions!
    It's possible that your friends ISP (or perhaps even his router) is blocking the port that your email account is using to receive mail on. This port number depends on what type of account it is, whether that be IMAP, POP3, SMTP, SecurePOP3, etc. See this article for a list of common port numbers used with these different email account types.
    http://www.emailaddressmanager.com/tips/mail-servers.html
    Other than that I don't have too many other suggestions, but I'm sure somebody else will.

  • I upgraded to FF 4.0 and now my "Share" mail doesn't work. Gives me a new blank FF window.

    I use gmail (or it may be google apps mail (?)) but I don't think that part is the problem: It just doesn't work anymore since the upgrade to 4.0. (BTW, The FF window I get after clicking on "Share" and then "Gmail" is the new style with FF in the upper left corner with a drop down menu.)

    In March when I upgraded to Lion and iCloud I also experienced a similar problem (cluster of problems) which was solved by a password reset (conforming to new requirements) for my Apple ID. I'm glad to see that many nice people contributed and your primary problem is fixed.  My comment is on your Quicken problem.
    Your data inside Quicken 2004 is on borrowed time.  In the process of researching personal budgeting apps I found many reports on the web that indicate Intuit as a company is scaling down Quicken (desktop) development and its future attention to the Mac platform will be minimal.
    Did you know that Intuit is behind Mint.com?  You may be hesitant to put your financial data "in the cloud" and I may be being sheepish, but.. bbaaaa, bbaaaaa, the cloud is where it's going.  I know first-hand want a pain in the arse it is to customize an app to your liking.  I spent several hours on Mint.com setting up categories and tagging transactions.  It's tedious. I didn't look because I wasn't a Quicken user, but perhaps Intuit was nice enough to provide a data conversion path for Mint.com.  It is worth a look.
    My second suggestion is to scour the web for a hack solution.  You can't be the only person who is facing this problem.  Quicken was very popular.  I just bet someone has posted directions or some code for exporting the Quicken 2004 data and manipulating it for something else.
    Good Luck.

  • I upgraded to the firefox 10 last night and now my aol mail doesn't work properly - i get an error message that it cannot load mail, i have to revert back to an basic version. what should i do to fix this?

    Uh-oh! Mail’s having trouble loading. Sorry for the delay! Click here to try again.
    If mail continues to get hung up, click here to sign into the Basic version. Basic delivers a great mail experience on slower Internet connections, such as dial-up.

  • Sending in Mail doesn't work, Entourage does, Why?

    Sending emails in Apple's Mail doesn't work, yet Microsoft Entourage does, Why?
    This is the conversation I've been having with my server tech, and they can't find the reason why I can send mail in Microsoft Entourage no problem, yet Apple Mail receives but not able to send any email what so ever..
    Very frustrating.

    I'm having a heck of a time trying to SEND emails on the SilverSpiritHomeServices.com system.
    I'm using a Mac.
    I can do it in Microsoft Entourage, yet I can't do it in Mac Mail (this is the program I need to be able to use).
    Receiving email it works fine, just sending it only works in Entourage.

    Hello,
    That definitely seems odd. Since it works fine with Entourage, that would indicate the server is working properly. Additionally, I've tested the SMTP server from here (on a Mac) and am able to connect. I do not have a valid user to send email with, but I can try it if you want to provide me with the one you are trying, temporarily.
    As always, if you have any other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. Have a great day, and thanks for choosing Rackspace Managed Hosting!

    If you use your ISP’s own email service (instead of a third-party such as Gmail), sometimes it may not work if you roam to another Internet access point, such as a cafe with wireless Internet. Check with your email provider that the settings they give you will work if you plan to roam."

    Your server only supports CRAM-MD5 and PLAIN authentication. You will need to use plain text authentication. I have never configured mac mail so I do not know how to configure this, you may want to speak with someone a apple support if you have trouble.

  • Microsoft Outlook doesn't work properly since I updated to Mavericks?!

    Hello.. so yeah ever since I updated to Mavericks, Outlook from Microsoft Office 2011 doesn's work properly. It won't pop up with a window to either reply, forward or write a new e-mail and it gets annoying because I need it for work. So it's totally useless. I don't want to be deleting and installing MO again because my friend did it for me and I don't know all the registration details to prove it's legit or something and I don't want stuff deleted. Sooo.... can anyone help? I don't know how to get it to work, so frustrating!

    What Apple wants from his customers?
    1) I've paid my iPhone 4S 900 euros;
    2) I'm used to buy music and apps from iTunes store;
    3) my iCloud space costs 32 euros per year
    and, like me, millions of customers around the world!
    and Apple does not allow me (and many others) to use the internet traffic for which I (we) pay my (our) provider, that's not among those that directly sell iPhone??? Is this your idea of a really unblocked device as you falsely declsre from the pages of Apple online store ?!? Shame on you!
    If I had know that the 7.1 led to this I'd never updated my iPhone. No one (Apple and the sites that live because of her) told about this issue in their enthusiastic comments on the new, updated version, of iOS. Shame on you!
    This would claim a class action against such a behaviour!
    I'm disgusted
    thank you

  • Wifi driver doesn't work properly

    HI,I've installed W8.1 instead of W7 but Wifi Dosen't work as a reight Way The Wi-Fi works for then depends on the work and then worked for againe
    this affects my Job if  i download anything,it stop loading continuesly.
    I've tried W8 and the same problem but it works  truely with w7.
    what should i do for making it works  truely with W8.1.
    Sorry length of e-mail.

    vn7571g_user,
    Sorry to hear that you are not having the best possible experience with your new notebook. I'd like to try and address a few of your concerns that you have listed and see if there are some things we can resolve for you.
    1. Wifi doesn't work properly:
    I see that you have posted in a couple other threads (1st, 2nd) regarding wireless issues with this notebook. We can gladly check this unit at the repair depot for you if you are not keen on changing the card out, PM me the following information and I will see what I can do for you:
    SNID or serial number
    Contact name
    Contact number
    Email address
    Shipping address
    Purchase date
    2. Wifi doesn't work after switching on and off 'Airplane mode'
    If you have already tried to install/update the drivers, it could be a Windows issue. You can attempt a refresh to see if that helps resolve it.
    3. Trackpad response is terrible
    This notebook uses a precision touchpad possibly, but since it uses Synaptics drivers you have a couple options:
    You can change the way that the touchpad works.
    It says Windows 7, but you can see if you have this option in the touchpad settings and see if it helps you out.
    4. Speakers jar
    Do you have the same issue without the Dolby turned on?
    5. Num-Lock is 'Off' after every sleep session
    Here is a Microsoft article that discusses this feature. You can follow the steps that they list if you would like.
    6. Keyboard-backlight setting is 'On' after every sleep session
    The backlit keyboard is working as designed. Here is an article with some FAQ about the backlit keyboard to help customers understand its functionality a bit more.
    A couple final thoughts:
    Did the issue(s) you are having occur before or after Windows updates, sometime a bad installation of an update can cause all sorts of things to happen.
    Worst case, you can always try to restore to factory defaults and test all these things before applying updates or installing any applications or programs.

    Hi,
    What’s Exchange Version? Sometimes, after Installing Exchange 2010 SP 1, Searching via OWA or Outlook Online Mode may Fail. If so, please try the following solution:
    Download the script
    Repair-ExchangeSearchSymlinks.ps1 from the Script Center.
    Copy the Repair-ExchangeSearchSymlinks.ps1 script to the Scripts directory on the Mailbox server (default installation is C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\v14\Scripts).
    On the afflicted Mailbox server, open the Exchange Management Shell by right-clicking the shortcut and selecting “Run as Administrator”.
    Within the Exchange Management Shell, navigate to the Exchange Scripts directory.
    Within the Exchange Management Shell, run the following script: .\Repair-ExchangeSearchSymlinks.ps1
    Within the Exchange Management Shell, run the following script (without the symbols [] and substitute the database name(s) for any databases you wish to reset: .\ResetSearchIndex.ps1 [-force] <dbname> [<dbname>]...
    You will receive an Event ID 109 when the rebuilding of the index starts for each database and an Event ID 110 for each database when the index rebuild has completed.
    After receiving Event ID 110 for each database, test to make sure search functions correctly with both OWA and Outlook operating in Online Mode.

  • Mail has stopped working properly

    Ever since the upgrade, my Mail will not work properly. It doesn't always show messages, but when it does it doesn't always show recent ones. I've just had to send a very important email but it is not showing in Sent Mail or Drafts, and I have no idea whether it has gone or not. And this email simply has to go.

    Quit Mail. Force quit if necessary.
    Back up all data before proceeding.
    Triple-click anywhere in the line below on this page to select it:
    ~/Library/Mail/V2/MailData
    Copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C. In the Finder, select
              Go ▹ Go to Folder
    from the menu bar. Paste into the box that opens by pressing command-V, then press return.
    A folder window will open. Inside it there should be files with names as follows:
              Envelope Index
              ExternalUpdates.storedata
    Move those files to the Desktop, leaving the window open. Other files in the folder may have longer names that begin as above. Move those files, if any, to the Trash.
    Relaunch Mail. It should prompt you to re-import your messages. You may get a warning that the index is damaged and that Mail has to quit. Click OK. Typically, the process takes a few minutes, but it may take hours if you have gigantic mailboxes. In that case, you may be able to speed things up by temporarily adding your home folder to the Privacy list in the Spotlight preference pane. Remove it when Mail has finished importing.
    Test. If Mail now works as expected, you can delete the files you moved to the Desktop. Otherwise, post your results.

  • I have just updated my mcbook to OS X Mountain Lion and Mail hasn't worked properly ever since, it keeps asking me for my password. What should I do with this, anyone could fix this?

    Sorry, if I sound silly on this next question, or string of questions, but:
    What does EFI stand for?
    Is it an acronym for something?
    I thought that my MacPro is 64bit? Well that is as far as I remember the salesman telling me, back when I did the B.T.O spec.
    I am running 64bit apps [in full 64bit mode] as far as I understand. Like the CS suiite.
    If I look at "About Photoshop…" it says — Version 12.1 x64
    Doesn't that mean that it is running 64bit apps?
    Or are you saysing that the "entire operating system" / "bios" or whatever it is called in Mac language, is not actually capable of running as 64bit?
    I need to find my box, that came with the MacPro, ans just have a look at the info that is detailed on it. As as far as I can remember there was even a big "64bit" flashy thing, somewhere on the outside of the box.
    But in the meantime, if you can perhaps help with the earlier questions.
    And perhaps one more …
    Where woudl I find the info / persons that I could investigate that "Hack", as I may need to investigate that a little. If anything just to be better informed, for the future. At the end of the day, if I have to scrub the entire Mac to the beginging, and reload everything, so be it, at least it will be a learning curve in the process.
    I have all the legal software installers etc, so all that it will cost me is time, if it does "kill" the operating system …
