Since posing my question I have discovered i am able to access my gmail by using personal hotspot on my iPhone. This problem began when I changed my modem. I do not understand why my email works fine on my iPhone and my iPad and not on my my IMAC???

Okay, please go to and download and install Teamviewer and Run it. Let me know the ID and Password ***** shows you.

Id must be 9 digit. The one you provided is 8 digit only

There is some unknown error that prevents us connecting. So please try another method. Please click here and click on I Agree button and download Screen Connect Client program and Run it. Then I will able to connect to your system. Because of it is a Java based program it may show you an error related to unknown publisher or unverified publisher. If so let me know and I will provide steps to overcome that error.

its telling me i have to run Java runtime.. what's that all about?

Please feel free to contact me if you need any assistance on this.

Click on OK to allow JAVA Runtime

That screenconnect client program is based on JAVA and that's why you are getting that message. If you can't open it, please hold down the CTRL key on your keyboard and click on the downloaded file and select open from the menu.
