Microsoft finally fix their problem with ‘Missing inbox’s’ with the 14.5.1 update
Mac Office 2011 version 14.5.0 was released on May 12th, 2015, however, most users are reporting serious issues after installing the update – so we strongly urge you to avoid doing so. After updating, many users reported an issue with Outlook – the program will open normally, but the main window never appears and cannot be forced to appear.
OS X Yosemite may occasionally cause some programs to crash when you open, save-as, or first save a file. These crashes are rare but happen when an application, such as Dropbox, uses Yosemite’s official Finder integration — and if that program crashes because of this interaction, unsaved changes may be lost.
To fix this issue, Apple has released OS X Update 10.10.1. This update is available for free in the Mac App Store. Details on how to update your Mac are available on Apple’s support site.
The new Outlook for Mac is available to Office 365 commercial customers and Office 365 Home, Office 365 Personal and Office 365 University subscribers.
Some great new features, primarily for iPhone users – but stop & think before you upgrade. Mac OS 10.8 & 10.9 are mature & stable, if your computer works why are you upgrading?
We have found some applications are no longer compatible with Yosemite OS 10.10 Do you know of the bugs, have you tested it with your applications?
There are always some problems with major OS changes. We recommend you wait until Apple release at least the 1st if not the 2nd patch (i.e.: 10.10.1 or 2).
We will let you know when it is sensible to upgrade – realistically this won’t be for 2 to 3 months. Once 10.10.2 comes out we will be happy to plan your business upgrade to minimise downtime and costs
Some users are experiencing problems post upgrade. Lync starts to launch then fails – preference problem.
Do the following:
- Make sure you have all Mac for Office updates and are running the very latest updates
- Go into System Settings, Language & Region
- Change the language from "English-Primary" (or whatever the language is set to) to "English-US"
- Go back into Settings, Language & Region
- Change the language back to "English-Primary"
- Open Lync and you should be able to log in just fine this time
Late Thursday 10th July Apple issued a security message saying it has blocked old versions of Adobe's Flash Player plug-in for Safari, as a recent flaw has been found that could potentially allow hackers to steal browser data — including cookies — on Macs, PCs, and Linux machines prompting Adobe to issue a patch and urge users to upgrade their system as soon as possible.
Therefore Apple has taken action against this vulnerability by restricting plug-in access through its Safari Web browser.
If you have the out of date plugin you'll get a message saying, "Blocked plug-in," "Flash Security Alert" or "Flash out-of-date" when attempting to access Flash content in Safari. Clicking on the alert takes you to Adobe, where the latest version of the plug-in can be downloaded and installed.
According to Adobe, the flaw can be found in Flash Player for Mac version 188.8.131.52 and earlier. After an exploit was demonstrated by a Google engineer Adobe advised Mac users to update to version 184.108.40.206. Aside from OS X, Windows and Linux builds of Flash were also affected by the bug.
The flaw relies on specially-crafted SWF files that consist entirely of alphanumeric characters, which will be executed by Flash Player even though they are not valid Flash files. Those malicious files can take advantage of the special privileges granted to embedded objects on a web page, making cross-domain requests on behalf of a user and capturing returned data.
