Still Here

TBT:   We seem to have successfully migrated the old 2011 Mac Mini to the "new" 2018 one.  Except for emails.  They just don't want to move.  We have asked a Mac Help Forum for assistance and advice.  They have been really helpful with other problems, so I expect a good response.

We don't want to leave the old Mac Mini (it still works for posting and I am using it here now) until we solve the email problem on the new Mac Mini.

It actually does still work for most things like email and blogger.  It's just that other apps are failing as they become unsupported on 32-bit and High Sierra.  The new one is 64 bit Catalina.  

We may be getting a grip on the email problem.  When that is solved, we should be back online fully.

If the email migration doesn't work, we will still have them on this old Mac Mini and can play around trying migration things later.  Actually, if the new Mac Mini receives new emails, we will probably start using it and keep the old one as archive.  It costs nothing to keep it plugged in on a separate card table across the computer room.

Meanwhile, if we are still offline tomorrow, HAPPY NEW YEAR'S DAY TO ALL OUR FRIENDS, and hoping 2021 will be better than 2020!

We are going through something similar...We have El Capitain...The new confuster comes next week. Thank Cod we also have Windows 10 on the work computer.
On this New Year, we wish that you have a superb January, a dazzling February, a Peaceful March, an anxiety-free April, a sensational May, and joy that keeps going from June to November, and then round off with an upbeat December.

You would think that all migration from Mac to Mac would go right on over. Mine have through the years. I wish there wasn't;t so much trouble to go through there. I like the idea of just letting it be an archive though...the old one.

Many years ago, after the 3rd I think issue loosing many mails and contacts, we decided to keep our email in Gmail. Best thing we ever did. Then again being troglodytes we never got the whole apple thing. Oh Cheap too MOL
