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.

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; \
rm -Rf ~/Library/Caches/Metadata/Safari; \
rm -Rf ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.Safari; \
rm -Rf ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.WebKit.PluginProcess; \
rm -Rf ~/Library/Cookies/Cookies.binarycookies; \
rm -Rf ~/Library/Preferences/Apple\ -\ Safari\ -\ Safari\ Extensions\ Gallery; \
rm -Rf ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Safari.LSSharedFileList.plist; \
rm -Rf ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Safari.RSS.plist; \
rm -Rf ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Safari.plist; \
rm -Rf ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.WebFoundation.plist; \

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 ?

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.

We have some IOS app developers who have made a app for IOS (IPA package). They have send the IPA file to me, and they have signed it with their own developer certificate - and say that we must sign it with our own, before we can deploy it.

We are using Intune with SCCM (hybrid) and SCCM I know very well how to deploy and stuff. But do any have some input how we should do this ?. It must be noticed, the App must not be on "app store". It is a local company app that we want to deploy to company phones etc, so outside App store

Can any give some input on this ?

Another note. I tried to put the Ipa on a phone through apple configurator 2. It install, but afterwards the icon stay "grey" - and when trying to click on it, the error comes that the application cannot be installed.  Must the app not work through apple configurationer with manual installation ? - or has this also something to do with the developer signing etc ?

Hi, I am a member of a website that has a number of AVI videos. I only use IPad Pro and do not own a pc/laptop.

I do not have access to ITunes. Is there a way I can watch these AVI movies directly from the website on my Ipad. I tried using VLC and input the http address but it does not seem to work.

Appreciate any assistance.

Hello!

I have some problems with Macs at my job. People use Apple Mail to send their emails. OS X El Capitan 10.11.6

Everyhing worked fine until last week. If she wrote a email and put her cursor back in a sentence, the letters are writing at the end of it.

She cannot put her letters where she want, they always go at the end of the sentence even if she place the cursor everywhere in it.

Do you have an idea of what is the problem? I did the command trick to put the encoding to UTF-8 as default. It works 2 days and the problem came back.

Thanks!

I have someone using an Iphone 7.  She has an Icloud calendar.  She had sent herself an invitation to her work email using Outlook. (connected to an Exchange server)  I don't use an Iphone so I am unsure of what it should be doing.   At first she said she couldn't sync back and forth.  Now she is saying she used to be able to but it just quit, but that the problem is with Outlook and not her phone..  She said she has a way to read it now.  Here's what she emailed me:
"Outlook isn’t letting me join it – it doesn’t work. It’s not my phone-  it’s our computer/server that has the issue. We somehow get it to be “Fixed” for a while- and then it just stops working all of a sudden. "
What she is said in a previous email is this:
This is how I “join” the calendar (see below) – officially (so it gives me updates as I make them) – but this stopped working so I tried to redo it and now it won’t work.
I also found a way to get a read only copy which is what I’m using now, but that way won’t update and so it’s just an old read-only version and isn’t helpful.

So I am a little out of the loop on this.  I can't tell her something won't work since she has told me it has before.

Any help would be appreciated.

hi Mac folks

as you might have known that, for some reasons, macOS HS has removed Translation Widget from its Dashboard, and one of the workaround methods is to copy the widget from previous OSX or macOS to the HS installation's /Library/Widgets folder.

I did that, copied the Translation.wdgt from my Mac Pro running El Capitan to MacBook Air running High Sierra.

But, it doesn't work as expected: as shown in the screenshot below, the copied widget can be added into the Dashboard, but it doesn't work at all because the language fields can't be switched or selected.  the fields just show <b>nothing</b>.

Screen-Shot-2018-02-28-at-11.31.12.png
do you have any idea what to do now? thanks.

kind regards.
