    Turn off iPod?

    Hrmph. Well, when I try to demonstrate not being able to put it to sleep (trusting what you say, that it doesn't turn off), it always works predictably... Really, it happens often..., honest. The screen will not shut off after I hold down pause, so I keep holding down different buttons until it...

    Turn off iPod?

    I read that you can turn off your iPod by holding the pause button down for a few seconds. This does not turn my iPod nano off. So, I just poke each of the buttons over and over until the screen turns off. But, I don't think it turns off then either, because I usually find the iPod battery dead...

    Close safari?

    The user guide says that you can close an application by clicking the home icon (they then have a square following that, in line with the text). There is an icon in the safari toolbar that looks like overlapping squares, but it does not close safari. What must I do?

    group songs by album?

    Aha! Thanks. Yes, I'm using itunes. I have a 1GB ipod from 5 years ago I think. I had "Songs" selected in the ipod. Selecting "Albums" does what I was looking for. My teacher is wrong, there are stupid questions.

    group songs by album?

    Okay, I've had this ipod thingy for years now. It can't be that other people have the same trouble I do. So, help? If I import songs and then drag them onto my ipod, the result is a jumble of songs sorted by song title. Is there a way to have them grouped by artist/album/track number instead?

    What mailboxes does Mail use for keep messages on server

    Arggh... apparently using BCC doesn't always work in Thunderbird now, in case this is of interest to anyone else. I just sent a very important email and got no BCC of the email!!! I can't ever lose email, this sucks.

    What mailboxes does Mail use for keep messages on server

    I think it's the corresponding folder, for messages that have been sorted on the mail server. So, for example mail in the imap folder "RolexViagraEnlargment" will stay in that folder on the imap server. In other words, what folder mail goes into would be setup on your imap server. For me...

    email client suggestions

    I think I will try Thunderbird again after all. But, I will uncheck copy to sent folder and Bcc: myself as some suggested in this thread about the bug: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=218625&postdays=0&postorder=asc&postsperpage=15&start=0

    email client suggestions

    Probably. It's not unable to connect at all, it hangs when trying to copy a message, according to the activity window. It then says an activity couldn't be completed while offline, so it's undoing the action so it can be retried when the account is online again. Connection doctor says connection...

    email client suggestions

    Thanks. I did use Thunderbird on mac, until I discovered the bug. So I can't use it. It's critical that I don't lose email. As for gmail, I want to reduce the amount to which my person information is data mined, so I won't use gmail and I generally reject email sent to me from gmail.

    email client suggestions

    With Mail stuck in a loop which I haven't figured out yet how to break out of, I will need to have an email client this next week when I travel. I can install one of the clients I use on linux. But I'm interested in other suggestions. I need an email client that works with IMAP that doesn't...

    Exporting mail from Mail.app?

    This doesn't work unfortunately, as soon as I reconnect it goes back to trying to copy a message. Most likely where it's trying to copy to is a folder on my imap server. I'm guessing it's the Trash that it's still trying to copy those messages I deleted to. I would certainly like that to be...

    mail.app stuck talking to imap server

    I did delete the message from the pop account already (actually I say that in my very long post). That allowed fetchmail to get beyond that one email. And mail works fine from evolution in linux. It's only in Mail, where it started after trying to delete those messages. While fetchmail was...

    Exporting mail from Mail.app?

    It's the version in leopard. I tried dragging the mailboxes from inside Mail, to my desktop, but it doesn't seem to work.

    Exporting mail from Mail.app?

    Well, they have already been deleted. And, I can read email from linux. Through out the day I go back and forth reading email from linux or macos. The problem happened at the same time that I got multiple copies of the same email, because fetchmail on linux went bonkers with one particular...

    Exporting mail from Mail.app?

    Mail is stuck in a loop. I think it's trying to copy email to the Trash on my imap server and it times out, then it tries again and again and again and finally crashes and I get the option to quit or relaunch or reset and relaunch. Trying all of those after it starts again, the same thing...

    mail.app stuck talking to imap server

    Mail.app appears to be stuck in a loop talking to my imap server running on linux. In the activity window, it shows "Copying message" and "synchronizing with server". Then it presents a prompt saying the connection timed out and it tries again, a few times, then Mail.app crashes. If I start it...

    Leopard on a G4 Powerbook??

    My experience was that I first upgraded with archive and install, and it hung with the spinning ball from the village in the tv british show the prisoner, of death, after booting. So, I did a clean install and that worked. But, it might have been the same problem I had later, which is that DiVX...

    Leopard on a G4 Powerbook??

    I have a 1.5ghz G4 powerbook that I have installed leopard on, and it runs. There was no special version of leopard for PPC at the store. I don't have garageband or ilife.
