Hello! I am IT Miro and I will assist you on this question.

To confirm, you use Mac Mail or another e-mail program to access your e-mails?

I confirm that I use Mac mail
Thanks for the information!

Since there could be several possible causes of the problem, I would like to start remote desktop assistance to your computer so that I can see the problem myself and help you solve it.

Let me know if you would like that.

What does this involve?
It involves me connecting you to your Mac computer remotely so that I can see the problem the same way you are seeing it. That will allow me to solve the problem for you.

There is a chat window available so we can chat as well. You can see everything I will be doing on the computer.

Let me know if you would like to proceed.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I am uncomfortable with the idea of giving you access rights to my computer

I plan to focus only on the problem. The problem is most likely in the incorrect e-mail settings which I need to check and fix.

So, should we proceed with the remote desktop assistance?

how long will it take?

Depends on the problem, but it is a lot faster than providing the text instructions.

In order for me to connect to your computer, you need to download a remote desktop connection program and start it.

We can use TeamViewer. Here is how to start it:

1. Go to

2. Just below the green Download button, click on the Join Remote Control Session link

3. TeamViewer file will automatically start downloading. Once done, locate the file and double-click it in order to start it. The file is named TeamViewerQS

4. When started, you should see a blue window that contains numbers - ID and Password ***** type those numbers here so that I can connect
