Hi, I just bought a 24" 2.8ghz iMac. I'v been playing around a bit and installing some apps when i'v uncovered a few problems 1. Mail - I can receive mail but i cant send it. However, i can send it online through .mac website. Sometimes it just wont send. Other times i get an error message: This message could not be delivered and will remain in your Outbox until it can be delivered. The attempt to read data from the server "smtp.mac.com" failed. I'v tried resetting the accounts but it still wont receive. Any ideas? 2. Parallels. I downloaded it today and installed windows and set it up. However, there are 2 problems. a) windows wont let me register my copy of xp. It does not think its real. It is real, it is from my old pc. I have the serial on the side of the tower but it wont accept it. b) i tried to play halo on it, but it comes up with this error: I have tried reinstalling DirectX but it hasnt solved it. I have changed the hardware acceleration around and it hasnt solved it. I dont know what to do 3. BootCamp. I tried this before parallels. It installed correctly, i got the mac windows drivers however when i put them in, windows said i needed to update the windows installer. I cant get on the internet until the drivers are installed, though. What should i do? I need windows for a few programs that wont install using crossover.
