Customer Question
I received a message...

I received a message from Apple that said someone tried to change my password ***** sign on with I Tunes and that is why I can

Technician's Assistant: When did you last change your password ***** Apple ID?

May, 2018

Technician's Assistant: Did you try resetting through Apple's online account reset tool?

I don't know because a comcast technician was here and he was just having me do whatever he said to do.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

No, except that all of a sudden this afternoon, none of my e-mails are going through, and I'm getting a message on all of them that I need to try a different server on them. I have no idea what's going on with that, and now this password ***** too.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
