My dear wife has been having some trouble with iPhoto lately. I try not to mess with her system much because how she does things and how I do things are leagues apart. But when she asks for help what can I do?
So what she had was photos that seemed to be disappearing and Events that started out with photos in them and then turned up empty. This actually happened earlier this month too although I don't remember what that resolution was.
Well, today I took a closer look and it was clear that there was something seriously amiss with her iPhoto library. So I did some digging and found a couple of ways to address the problem. None of which was I pleased with but, as I say, what can you do?
If you're interested here's what I did. And it turns out well. At least in the short term.
I've just posted a description on what I did to get the server relay mail through Gmail. As my ISP blocks all Port 25 traffic I had to use a different host, I chose Gmail because the firstname.lastname@example.org email is hosted there, to handle outgoing email.
