  1. I am stumped with a Mac that has a “Ghost” file that is preventing me to connect to any server. Even random numbers in the server address cause this error message to pop up that is can’t find this particular file. How do I make this Mac running High Sierra forget this old path?

    Airport Extreme slowing down my connection

    Did you double check that you are not creating a double NAT on the network when you connect the Airport Express?

    Mac Server Share - permissions

    I am suffering the same thing after upgrading to 5.4. Users connected to the server end up with Finder crashing and having to hard reboot their machines! One thing I found was that connecting via Bonjour was causing the majority of the problems.
  4. I was able to reach the developer Feingeist via Twitter. After I send them some crash reports and gave them the account I was able to install it and activate it without trouble. The new business model is that you can use it 30X per month. Above that you have to purchase a license at $5 per month. Mailbutler does include some other very neat features. But still it pisses me off that a Plugin that I bought was broken with a upgrade of OSX and now we are forced to buy a new version...
  5. Sendlater plugin for Mail has disappeared and been replaced with Mailbutler. This app offers some great features and I am happy to pay for software but this is outrageous! If you have more than one email account you need to upgrade to a pro version of more than $5 per month per email account with a minimum of 10 accounts! Sorry for not knowing the exact price as it will only show you after you install and create an account and doesn't reveal it on their website. But ++$50 per month to add some features to my Apple Mail ??? I have searched for alternatives but so far have come up empty handed.

    Going back to Mavericks

    Its not Yosemite. You need at least 4GB of memory for 10.9 or 10.10 Most likely your HD is going south....

    OSX 10.10 Yosemite Server 4.0 problems

    I figured it out; reset the keychain. Accept the new certificate issued when you login.
  8. After the disappointment that I cant manage the servers running the previous versions of OSX server from my upgraded desktop. I upgraded my office server to 10.10 Yosemite with OSX Server 4.0 I am still not able to connect. I can remote desktop into the server without a problem (both are on the same LAN with the server on .local). But the Server app is not able to connect. Actions taken so far: Update software on desktop to 10.10 and Server 4.0 Update software on server to 10.10 and Server 4.0 Verified connection by pinging IP and .local Verified to connect to the drive and screen sharing via local network Rebooted router + switch Rebooted desktop + server If you manage OSX servers for clients, keep a system on 10.9 around so you can still keep your business running. Upgrading the server needs to be done on site with display, keyboard and mouse connected. Does any one else experience the problem of not being able to connect to the server despite being up-to-date on both sides?

    Persistent pop-ups in Safari and Chrome

    Thanks, Looking trough the list of recommendations of "The Safe Mac" I think I did all of that. Not a fan of installing Sophos / Alvast and MacScan as would have to uninstall it again from every machine. I will give "Adware Medic" a try the next one I encounter. Usually these issues are fairly easily resolved by resetting or deleting a certain file. But this one took me over an hour of sifting trough the entire system. Only to be resolved by a blunt method of deleting and reinstalling the browsers. Hoping to find a more effective solution by identifying the file causing the trouble. Smiles across the wires, Rogier
  10. Hi, I recently I have encountered a number of Macs that are in trouble with Safari and Chrome. The problem is a very persistent pop-up claiming that the computer is infected etc etc etc Many of them leading to the Mac keeper site (I always end up uninstalling that crap) Non of this worked: Reset Safari Uninstall Flash Remove all Extensions Remove all Website Data Remove all internet plugins I spend quite a bit of time in the system and user library removing all possible .plist, cashes and other files that could possible be related to this problem but had no luck. What did work was: Opening the package content of Safari Downloaded and installed combo update 10.9.5 Delete Chrome and all the related data in the User Library Reinstall Chrome I wander if there is a more effective way to cure this problem, I have the feeling this might be jus the beginning.... Looking forward to your replies, Rogier

    iCloud keeps forgetting password....

    Does the question come from the Mail.app or from iCloud? In Mavericks the best way to reset passwords is via: System Preferences > iCloud System Preferences > Internet Accounts In Mail.app: Preferences > Accounts > Outgoing Mail servers: Remove any iCloud or old .mac, .Me smtp settings. Keychain: Search for any keys that are related to the account with trouble. Remove any redundant key's. Keychain First Aid > Repair Keychain Hope this helps, Rogier

    Multiple .Me accounts in Apple Mail

    Yeah I know, I only need to enable the Mail for the other .Me accounts. Creating multiple users is what I ended up doing but not really the solution I am looking for...

    Multiple .Me accounts in Apple Mail

    Ok. Well I tried that on various occasions but it doesn't work. It wil ask for a incoming mail account. I have tried to skip it and let iCloud take care of it to no avail. Then I copied the server addresses as known from the set-up for this 2nd account from an other laptop. This failed as well....

    Multiple .Me accounts in Apple Mail

    Thanks for your input. But I am talking about adding to Apple Mail in OS X 10.7 and not on a iOS device. Still looking for a solution :-) Rogier
  15. Hi, Today I was asked to set-up Apple mail. Easy enough. However it turned out the the person had multiple iCould accounts and wanted the various .Me email accounts in Apple Mail. Easy enough to do account No1 though the iCloud preference pane. But what to do with the other .Me accounts? I tried to add them as iMap accounts but that did not work... Any one solved this problem? Looking forward to your suggestions. Rogier
