    Installed el capitan.
    1. Mail lost all mailboxes and all mails older than one year.
    2. iPhoto is not supported by el capitan, required software not available in mac-store.
    3. F9 and F10 keys do not function
    Disappointing - any suggestions?

    Hopefully you have a back up of the emails and can add them back. Perhaps they were stored on your mac and not on the email server?

    iPhoto works with El Capitan - I use it a lot for all my old photos. Still prefer iPhoto to Photos

    iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2009)
    3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
    It was running perfectly on 10.6.8 until el capitan took over

    The photos were stored on the mac, but I have everything backed up on external hard drive.
    I tried to bring up iPhoto but Capitan said it needs to be upgraded which is not available in the macshop.
    Now I am tempted to re-load the 10.6.8 and live with it although it won't be supported after a while

    If you want to keep using iPhoto - just copy the app from your back up and put it in the applications folder.

    Or you can use photos to convert the iphoto library to the newer app - Photos

    Both iPhoto and Aperture work fine with 10.11.4. I still use them regularly (hate Photos). I think there was an update last year to make them compatible with 10.10 and 10.11. I just checked in the App Store and iPhoto and Aperture are still available under my "Purchased" tab.
