Apple's early computers ran on a variety of operating systems, including a Pascal version and one based on CP/M, before releasing its ProDOS with the advent of its 16-bit computer. With the release of the Lisa, which had its own OS, Apple and computing entered the graphical age; it was followed by the Macintosh, which offered a series of "System" operating systems. Other Mac operating systems included PowerPC until Apple acquired NeXT and folded it into the Mac OS. Current operating systems for Apple devices are Mac OS-X and iOS.

This is on MacBook Air with Sierra 10.12.6

The user filed saved mail "On My Mac" instead of in the Exchange Account.  There are several layers of folders.
Copying folders from "On My Mac" to the Exchange account is not reliable.  A lot of folders never get copied.

I know that I can re-create the folder structure in Exchange, and then manually move all the email one folder at a time, but that is a lot of work.

Is there a 3rd party program or some other method for moving all this mail?

Thanks.

A colleague indicated that he prefers iPhone over android phone because the iPhone is entirely encrypted and all apps download from the Apple store passes thru rigorous process prior being placed on the store.  On the other hand, android phone are not encrypted and you can download apps from anywhere, besides the store; in other words there is little control as to the google store apps as to security.  Finally all who developed apps for iPhone have to pay an anual fee to Apple where as to android no fee - insinuating at one point that a hacker can create an apps load it to google store and all can download it; thus being able to reach millions with ease.

Is there any accuracy to this persons comment? Please advice.

Which AntiVirus program would you recommend for a Mac?

I know that usually a Mac doesn't need one, but still if yes , which one would you recommend?

I am used to typing the first letter or two of a long folder name, then pressing the Tab key. I like tabbing through my options, then pressing Enter when the right one appears.

Can I do this on the Mac terminal?

Thanks

Several users within my organization have reported issues to me where there are file attachments within a Mac Outlook 2016 email but the file attachments are grayed out.

This happens even though the email with the attachment have downloaded into the user's Mac Outlook 2016 Inbox. The users then have to wait anywhere from a few seconds to several minutes for the file attachments to become available and are able to be downloaded (depending upon the speed of their internet connections).

Our organization uses Office 365 as its email provider.

Is there any way of changing this so that Mac Outlook 2016 will completely download the entire email (including all file attachments) so the users won't have to wait for the file attachments to finish downloading when opening the email?

I have 3 Macbook Pro's in the same location, along with 2 Windows PC's.
One of the Macbook Pro's ... just one ... is significantly slower at moving data ... meaning both for Upload/Download speeds over the internet,  as well as moving data files around internally with my LAN. By 'significantly' I mean it moves info about 10-15% of the speed of the other Mac's & PC's. (I measured with speedtest.net and a stopwatch!)
All Macs are configured about the same, HW & SW.

Can anyone offer any tips on how to troubleshoot this type of problem, before I give up and 'assume' that it is a HW (NIC) problem and toss the Mac in the Trash? (no warrantee left)

Hi all,

To put it as simply as i can (mostly so i can get my head around it) i have a few iMacs for users,  currently they're using Snow Leopard but we want to move over to an OS that's newer and supported.

I've got a test mac duel booting to both Snow Leopard and El Capitan, but want to give the user choice on boot up of what OS they can use, but here's the catch... I don't want them to hold down the option key because that's locked down to us (Admins).

In the past we used a piece of software called 'Bootpicker', which will boot up and give the user the choice of either Windows or Mac.

Is there an alternative to this that will give you a boot option for two different Apple OS's?

I had this question after viewing Macbook Air/Pro- Security- Keylogger.

I do a lot of online purchasing and never heard of 'keylogger' before, so it made me think there is some cause for concern.  The question is from 2012.  Is this still something I need to have such an elaborate defense setup on my macbook like the author of that post recommended?  Or has Apple done pretty well to combat such intrusions?  I have an antivirus.  Should that suffice?

I have the iPhone 5.  Apple are not providing iOS 11 to users like me.  The cynical me says it's because they want me to spend to upgrade to the latest shiny toy.  Is that the real reason?   I really can't believe that hey can't afford to support performance and functional updates for upto 10 years.  

Is Android any better?

I can not remember how long this problem has existed, but I did upgrade my cell phone from iPhone 6 to 7 a few months ago.

I enter a new contact into Contacts on my El Capitan MacBook, but it never shows up on my iPhone. I make sure to select the

"All iCloud"

choice on the left side, under "iCloud"

What could be wrong?

Thanks.

When I go into the monitor's onscreen menu, it shows my resolution as 3840x2160, 30Hz (connected via DisplayPort).
Next to that it shows 3840x2160, 60Hz (maximum).
Based on the information I've been reading, it looks like the Mac Mini can't do anything over 3840x2160, 30Hz so that makes sense.
However, when I go into SYSTEM PREFERENCES > DISPLAYS and choose "Scaled" for the resolution, I get only the following options:
- 2560x1440 (low resolution)
- 2304x1296 (low resolution)
- 1920x1080 <- this one is marked
- 1504x846
- 1280x720
I have an abundance of cables but nothing allows me to get this thing to 4K.  Dell doesn't support Apple's OS so they don't want anything to do with it but I've been reading online that THIS monitor is supposed to be one of the recommendations online for a budget 4K monitor.
Any help would really be appreciated.

Is there still a way to immediately delete a file of folder on the recent versions of Mac OS X (Sierra) ... without going into Terminal?
That is, without waiting for it to move file-by-file to the Trash, only having to repeat the same thing when Emptying the Trash?

I don't like how itunes 12.7 loses the apps tab on the sidebar so I can transfer apps to my ipod touch so I did some things to trash it and install 12.3 --- That worked just fine but this morning it automatically updated to 12.7.  Is there a way to prevent itunes from updating?

I have a client who has a iMac which currently still sits in oSX version 10.7.5.
I thought we could go into the iTunes App Store on this iMac and find the oSX version upgrades to upgrade it to a more current version of oSX.  But I Could not see it as an option to download in there.

Can anyone advise where I should be going to find the upgrades to manage this Apple Mac to be upgraded to a more current oSX version?

Thanks

Do Macs have or is there any way software available that will transfer a user's files from the Mac OS X Sierra OS directly to a Windows 10 OS on another computer?

Or do these files need to be manually copied from the Mac OS to the Windows 10 OS?
