After OS X Yosemite update to version 10.10.4 Mac owners are faced with errors in the Mail. Some users may encounter problems when using Exchange accounts and Gmail, as well as a number of other service providers email. Errors are observed in the beta version of OS X 10.11 El Capitan.
Usually the problem manifests itself in the inability to log into the mailbox; in addition, the application may not check email, not to send letters or just not start. MacDigger offers a solution that will help, if you constantly have errors when you login, check mail, and when sending and receiving electronic correspondence.
How to solve problems with mail in OS X Yosemite:
Step 1: Launch the Mail app, open the menu “Mail” and open “Settings”.
Step 2: Click the tab “accounts”, select the account where the problems arise, and go to the tab “Extensions”.
Step 3: navigate to “Automatically detect and manage account settings”, then follow these steps:
- If it’s not ticked, tick it and restart the Mail application.
- If the checkbox is checked – uncheck it, restart the Mail app, go back into the settings window and check the box, and then restart the application.
Step 4: Repeat the steps for other Mail accounts.
Of course, restarting the app and “check” rather tedious, but this method works and can solve problems with standard mail on a Mac: automatically detect the account settings will rebuild the server settings as needed.
If you followed the steps above and continue to see errors in the mail app, try to use the “Box” –> “Rebuild”.
Problems with the Mail app not arise at all Mac users who upgraded the operating system to the latest version. It is unclear what is the cause of the failure; maybe it’s the outdated account settings. Could change the port number or address of the mail server since the last refresh settings and automatic configuration corrects this error.
