Has anyone experienced slow backups with Time Machine?  Right now, I have 1.11GB to backup and it says 4 hrs (only backed up 60MB).  I am on a GB network and we are backing up to a NAS.  I copied my VM (80GB) to the network (same destination NAS) in about 10 minutes a few days ago so it's not network speed, disk speed, etc.

The user received a legitimate email with a return address using their text mail address. However they didn't send the email, they only received it.  The sending address is their phone number @ mms.att.net
The user has an iPhone, an iPad and an iMac.  The email was received on the iPhone and iPad, but not on the iMac.  

Is there a way to see the header on an email received on an iPhone or iPad?

They have since called AT&T and made sure that they don't share their phone number account with anybody else.
ATT told them that they also share a satellite TV account with another person, but that this other person is the only control for the shared account.

The user changed their iCloud password, and confirmed that they have 2-factor authentication turned on.

My guess is that their phone number is embedded in the Mac Messages app on some computer somewhere, and that when a file was 'shared' the Messages app sent the file using a wrong phone number.

Naturally, they don't want people sending out email using their AT&T phone number

Any idea how this return address appeared?

Thanks.

My client's Iphone won't sync to Outlook whenever I add a contact to the IPhone.  It does sync when I add a contact to Outlook.  It also syncs whenever I edit a contact on the IPhone or in Outlook.  So, the only problem we're having is when we add a contact to the IPhone, it won't sync to Outlook.  We're using Outlook 2016 with Exchange 2010.  

It used to work, but now doesn't.  The only change he has made is he updated the iOS to 12.1.  Please let me know if you have any ideas on this.  I've researched this thoroughly, but can't find any solutions.  Thanks, Barbara

I'd be grateful to learn whether Outlook 2016 searches emails held on the server, which will in my case be Icloud. I currently use POP3/PST and want to migrate to IMAP/OST. My PST is about 10GB, and I plan to keep about 5GB of that locally cached on my Win 7 machine. My questions are: 1) Will Outlook 'instant search' only the locally cached emails, or will it also build a search index of emails held on the server and thereby quickly search those server-held emails as well 2) if 'yes', will 'instant search' of server-held emails be slower than that of locally cached emails. 3) Generally, does the search experience of IMAP/OST feel any slower than of POP3/PST?

Using iOS - Ipod.

Found some interesting podcasts with big libraries - hundreds of episodes.

So far, only way to download them all would be to...click each one and select download.

Need top find an iOS podcast app that allows me to bulk download all podcasts.

I know Podbean allows this.  But, it is super buggy and crashes all the time.

Any others?

Thanks!

iCloud keeps popping up and asking me to sign in several times a day. Most of the time I ignore it, but when I do sign in I get the message, that I have to enter my Apple ID code (2-step verification), and I do. Then it says I have to repair iCloud for Windows to use iCloud with Outlook. I have to open Programs and Features, select iCloud, and then Change, iCloud-error.JPG, and Repair. I do all that, and reinstall iCloud for WindowsiCloud-error_2.JPG but nothing happens. Now, I do not use Outlook on a regular basis anymore. Is there some way to stop iCloud from popping up and making me sign in and then trying to get me to reinstall it every hour of every single day? I can just delete the pop-up but it is annoying.

Thank you.

I have to write up a set of instructions for  users  across the country to back up their email, and if need be import it back into MacMail.  We are migrating from Rackspace to Office 365.  Some people have used pop settings, so I want them to be able to import their current mail back into their new office 365 account when they put their new settings in MacMail.  They have no mail on the server, of course since its POP.  Or if there are any issues with the migration for my imap users, they will have a back up.  I have found some youtube videos and some website explaining what to do, but  they aren't the best.  I'm wondering if an expert on here knows of some great instructions for doing this.  I want to be able to easily tell them how to import that file back in.  Any  help would be appreciated.  Thank you in advance for your help.

me.com email account in Outlook.

After getting a new iPhone and changing the password of the Apple ID the icloud sync in Outlook not longer works and when it prompts for the password,
 imap.email.me.com or smtp the new password does not work. No setting in outlook changed in that time period. 993 and 587 and etc are all the same. It's a bit like a cert or other verification is needed.

PS: I've read most of the post on EE so far and found nothing that helps to date.

I would like to find a way where I can screen share from MacBook to 22x iMacs.
We are running a medical imaging course and it would be beneficial for the delegates to see the slides and content that is being shown by the presenter on a MacBook on the podium up close on the iMacs which each delegate will have in front of them. They will be using software on them later in the day.

I know I could use the native OSX screen sharing software but I wonder if it has limitations when trying to share to 22x iMacs simultaneously?

I presume to maintain performance that an ethernet/switch setup is best rather than attempting a Wi-Fi router.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Is it possible to share iTunes Library between PC & Android phone?

A brief search yielded shows information about using Android but I don't see any literature on using Android phones other than Apple Music subscriptions.

Is this a recent change or has it always taken an Apple mobile device to play your library from a mobile device?

Hi Guys,
I have a client with a Mac Book Pro with OSX 10.13. We discovered his Safari home page is set to http: slash slash search dot jimbrie dot com. It added some extensions as well.
I ran the attached code to reset Safari which took care of the extensions but cannot change the home page.
mv ~/Library/Safari ~/Desktop/Safari-`date +%Y%m%d%H%M%S`; \
rm -Rf ~/Library/Caches/Apple\ -\ Safari\ -\ Safari\ Extensions\ Gallery; \

Open in new window


I have followed several websites that tell you to go into various Library folders and manually delete suspicious files. I have found nothing suspicious in the designated library folders. I even ran Malwarebytes for Mac but no luck. In addition, I cannot find any suspicious the Applications folder that matches known malware pertaining to jimbrie dot com.

Any suggestions for changing the homepage from http: slash slash search dot jimbrie dot com ?

What's the best way to update Mac mini "Core 2 Duo" 2.4 (Mid-2010) from 10.6.8 to either El Capitan or Sierra or at least something newer than 10.6.8. We do not mind doing fresh install. We have other El Capitan Mac which we could use to create an installation image. Can we just install El Capitan and will it automatically activate and not ask for licence serial number? Will drivers still be available?

Regards,
Tom

Which is the best software for unlocking my iPhone?

Mac OSX question

I have a large library of digital media. Most of it is kept "offline" but the library software I use (Plex) uses media files to build the library and so I need to use placeholder files.

Using 30 second "this file is archived" videos I can easily catalog offline movies in Plex. I "rsync" the directory structure without files and then "do cp" a placeholder into each movie directory and rename using the parent folder name.

For TV shows this isn't practical as there can be hundreds of episodes per show. I would like to know if there is a way to duplicate the folder/file structure of a tv show, with many episodes under a single folder, using the same placeholder file.

To reiterate, the ultimate goal is to take a placeholder file eg. "placeholder720p.mkv" and use this file to recreate the source directory with the same filenames. So in the end I will have a folder that looks identical to the source, but consists of this placeholder file duplicated over and over. Also, there are non-alphanumeric characters and spaces in the filenames to be duplicated.
