In Australia there is a very clever scam going on at the moment. When your email stops working, you may get a call from someone claiming they are from ‘Apple Support.’ It may be a polite greeting like ‘Hello this is Mary from Apple Support and we’ve noticed you’ve had a problem with your Gmail on your Apple Computer. This is a problem we are working to fix. Are you at your computer now…’ etc. This happened to a relative of mine and it was soooo convincing that I could not initially convince them that it was not Apple! To verify it we asked for a case number from the person, then rang Apple support, to find there was no such case number.

Over the past couple of months our family has discovered a strange little problem. Our emails have been getting mixed up! My daughters have been sending emails, but the replies have been coming to me. I have been sending emails, and they have appeared as coming from my wife. And in the worst case, some emails have been sent from a separate ical calendar that I don’t even check.

I have finally figured out what is happening, and I can’t believe I didn’t notice it earlier. Read on for what’s causing the problem and how to fix it!

inbox

Google Inbox has become my preferred email app for my iPhone. I have been using it alongside Apple Mail for about a year but in the last couple of months I have completely ditched the Apple Mail app in favour of Google Inbox.  It’s just lovely to use, where do I start?

calendar

I have been keeping an eye on three iOS apps that Google have been playing with over the last few years,  and they have all come to age at the same time.  I’m not sure if the timing is coincidence or some kind of subversive move by Google but Google have nailed these three wonderful iOS apps all in the last few months: Calendar, Inbox, and Google Play.

mail

 

Have you ever had the problem in the mail app on the iPhone that when you start to type a person’s name all their past (obsolete) email addresses come up! Even after you have deleted someone from  your  ‘Contacts’ they can appear in the ‘To’ field of Mail app when you are writing a new email.  This is because the mail app remembers  the email address of anyone that you have sent an email to . This is very handy if you have someone  that you want to send an email to who is not in your contacts.  But it can get annoying when someone’s old disused email address keeps appearing instead of the new one.

I have already written about how to solve this  problem on the desktop version of mail app in OS X  here.

How do you solve the problem on the iPhone though?  Here’s how.

mail

Today I discovered a whole pile of messages in my “On my Mac: Outbox”  and no matter what I tried I couldn’t get them to send.   I use gmail as my mail server.  The emails looked like they were sending – there was no error message – but they didn’t actually send. They were still in the outbox.  When people started to complain about my slow email replies, I looked and discovered all the emails over the past three days were just sitting there in my outbox!
