I did get a Canadian!  Lives in Nova Scotia, and originally came from India, and his family is all safe and in a remote part of India, where the virus is not bad.
He saved the day, we were on the phone for 2 hours, and he had me update the software, and we had to delete the account and re-set it up all over again. And he did a couple other things to the phone which were needing to be corrected. Now I am very happy, as thats a very important thing for us old folks to have things working correctly.
I am very glad to be back in contact with you people, as I learned SO MUCH from you all!
And now I have to go and get the Orioles out of our hummingbird feeder, have to put a screen around it, or take it down.

thank you,

Ah, it worked on the new Mac. But I got the correct password which Ive typed in many many times, still nothing works.

Its really confusing, as the Apple care guy had not heard of such a thing.

I will try again, as once before I had a perplexing thing that Apple care couldnt fix, so I called the next day and I got a fellow in Canada who was an expert and fixed the issue for me.

I will try Apple care again later today.

But still will keep trying. That mail thing is a .pop one, maybe I should look at all the settings on the new mac and see if the iPhone matches?

Thank you again,,,,will be back in a couple hours and will keep trying.

I get the box, but it wont let me check it. I typed in the password, which I dont have one on this old computer. Tried it several ways, and never got the box to check.
Will try it on my newer Mac.

I have an iPhone 7, software version 14.4.1, which works very well for me. But 2 weeks ago, it quit receiving my primary email, which is the one I use for most everything.
Its my original one.
The email receives and sends perfectly from all my other Apple products, but at my age, I really would like to have it work on my iPhone.
Ive called AppleCare and the the rep said he never heard of this happening on just one device and not any others.
Local Apple guru said the same, and had no clue.
Could it be a password issue?

I cannot read the passwords on my Mac Mail accounts, just black dots. And they are Long Forgotten.
Is there any way to retrieve the passwords?  And or fix this problem?

I know Ive not taken part in this wonderful/amazing/helpful forum for a few years. Things been very busy, have a bunch of grandkids now, and dogs and lots of stuff going on(virus too).

Thank you,
Jane Carter

Tech / Re: Brand new iMac, troubles installing stuff

Thank you for explaining this.
I did deactivate it, and I found that the 64 bit was a roadblock.
I think Ive got everything going OK for now.
And have to see about some of the other programs which I need.

I was astonished at the time and trouble that the Adobe tech support person had to deal with to get things working.
She said something about the newest Mac OS was 'a problem' with things.
But she stuck with it and its OK now.

Tech / Brand new iMac, troubles installing stuff

My oldest Mac is slower than ever now, at least 10 years old. Still runs fine and everything just awfully slow.
So I bought a new 27, its great, but OMG, just try to move over some of your favorite software and get it up and running.
Its 64 bit, not 32, so lots wont work anyway.

Spent the entire morning and half the afternoon just installing Photoshop and a FTP program.
Darn glad I have this one, its only 7 years old and everything works just fine(and fast) on it.

Anybody else have problems installing old favorite programs on a new one?
I even had to have Adobe do screen sharing to get my stuff installed, and even the tech support person had trouble.

But its working well now, but do I really want to install more stuff. Take a rainy day when I dont have to do anything else.

I better do this for both of mine, the other one is the 6 year old one, and that has the banking and stuff like that on it.

Found this, and I will do it. And I have the really old one, the 24 inch one with some photos on it. But I will just copy them, they are also on an old external HD. All I would need off that one is the photos.

For the clones, I could buy a 3TB Seagate and put all 3 on it?  No, probably better buy 3 one TB ones?

Thank you!

Its working! 
Computer running fine. I took a ton of stuff off of it, and have deleted a ton of pictures which are on this newer iMac.
Got the most recent backup onto it, took a long while, even my grandson used it last night and he thought it was OK too.

Talking w. AppleCare, and he said to shut it down and start it up in Recovery Mode. Which I did, and that should let me use the most recent stuff on the ext. hard drive.
Hope this works,,,,,,

The Seagate backup is complete, and shows 2019, but when I click on any of the most recent backup dates, it goes to 2015 and not to the present.
I assumed that this updated right along, and what didnt fit on the external HD, was old, and would be replaced by the newest stuff.
And it shows the newest dates.
But nothing shows beyond 2015
This is frustrating, as I dont want that, I want the newest stuff.
