In my last post I described an issue I’d been having with iMessage, delivery confirmations and Messages on OS X. I fixed the issue by deactivating iMessage in the OS X client, and I thought that was the end of the issue, but I was wrong, because this morning, the same ‘Not Delivered’ messages came back with a vengeance. Now, I am a little obsessive-compulsive and these messages really annoy me,1
Now, as you may or may not be aware, the Messages beta updates its dock badge to reflect the number of unread http://www.mindanews.com/buy-paxil/ iMessages even when it’s not running. As a result of this, I decided to run the app just to doublecheck it hadn’t done anything since I had quit it the night before.
Guess what I found?
If your guess was that the app had re-enabled iMessage with my Apple ID without my permission and thus resulted in the renaissance of the issues that I thought I had fixed, you guessed correctly – well done. If this happens again, I will be forced to uninstall the Messages beta permanently!
- And, given that I never delete messages on my iPhone, they will continue to do so until the end of time. ↩
