The last two articles proposed are really dear to my heart and feelings on how the web has to grow to be a better version of ourselves… and the last one is one of the most intelligent and greatly written post on the topics I’ve ever read.

macOS ‘Sierra’: how-to set a POP3 email account in Mail.app

Did you notice? On macOS 10.12 ‘Sierra’, when you try to add a new email account with Mail.app using the guided procedure it seems that you can only have an IMAP one…

Of course you can still have a POP3 account but, like it’s in Apple style in those last years, you have to use a gimnik to achieve the result [if you’re not going Apple-way-of-doing-things be prepared to this].

So let’s see how to do this. Open Mail.app and go to its Preferences, here point to the Account section and try adding a new account… make sure to give a wrong password on pourpose when asked:

Sierra add email account 01(My System is set with Italian, so forgive me the language)

After some work behind the scenes, the procedure will say that something is wrong and will ask some more details for this brand new account we’re setting up. As you can see in the following screenshot some more fields to fill will appear, along with a courtain asking the “Account type” we want to set up: IMAP or POP3

Sierra add email account 02That’s it… all we have to do now is to put the correct valule for the POP3 incoming email server and the correct password!
Hope this can be of help to someone…

I support Stories of Apple. You should too…

It’s a know fact my long time friendship with Nicola D’Agostino. It’s also known that we share a certain number of passion and interests, among with the software and the hardware made in Cupertino, California. And lots of times here, on Twitter and around the web I’ve talked about some cool content on his project Stories of Apple

Storie di Apple - logo

Today I’d like to spend some more words on this project, inviting you to support this historiographical job that he’s making since 2007 (in this form). Staring with a 2$/month contribute you can sponsor his work thanks to the crowdfunding site  Patreon.
With this money we can support his job maintaining 2 websites, 1 Instagram account, a rich Tumblr profile and some exclusive content over Patreon website itself…

If I get enough support by readers on Patreon, I will be able to write more original stuff and even try my hand at some more ambitious projects, like regular columns and videos.

Over the Patreon platform you will be able to check the level of support you’re more comfortable: starting with the Vice President level (2$ per month) up to  iCEO (15$ or more per month) 😀 … each with his own level of benefits and ‘power’ in the future of the project.
As in any of his actions, very politely and humbly Nicola has decided to undertake this financing road to better realize this enormous job of documenting Apple (and computing) history over the decades, avoiding the worst form of monetization available today (banners, targeted ads, hidden referral links and so on). He respects his readers, but he’s in a position to ask for help to go on…

I have decided to support Stories Of Apple and this take on web content publications by Nicola, and I’ve started as a Vice President… if we ‘all’ join in we can contribute to enrich the Web with a little and shiny diamond…
