I replaced my hard drive to a bigger one and then had to re install my operating system.  How do I get all my emails that are on the cloud or my phone onto my computer?  It's like i have 2 different emails. On my computer everything is blank and on the cloud and my iPhone I have all my emails.  Help

    You just need to set up your email account in Mail with the correct settings. Chances are, you will want to use IMAP so that if you delete an email on your Mac it is also deleted on your iPhone - they stay in sync. POP downloads the email but when you delete an email it doesn't delete it from the server. There are a fair amount of settings that need to be correct in order to get it set up.

     

    Remove your current email account via Mail > Preferences > Accounts > select it in the list > hit the - button. Then you can add a new one with the + button.

     

    Good luck!
