All my ac­count pref­er­ences are greyed out

Mac Format - - APPLETALK -

I have an iMac run­ning OS X 10.9.4. I can­not sync Cal­en­dar, Re­minders and Notes be­tween iCloud and the Mac. If I open the In­ter­net Ac­counts pane in Sys­tem Pref­er­ences, all op­tions are greyed out. Sim­i­larly the iCloud mail­box in Mail says it’s off­line and re­fuses to go on­line. If I click Edit Ac­count In­for­ma­tion the in­com­ing mail server is mail.ex­am­ and can’t be edited, yet if I in­put my lo­gin de­tails it ac­cepts them. If I go to the Sa­fari iCloud app all the apps are synced with my iPad, iPhone and iPod – but not the Mac… An­thony Leeds This is likely a pref­er­ence cor­rup­tion. Have a look at iCloud pref­er­ences. Are the check­boxes for each app greyed-out there as well? If they aren’t, try untick­ing Mail and tick­ing it again. That will force it to run the auto setup pro­ce­dure for your Mail ac­count again. If the boxes are greyed-out there as well, try sign­ing out of iCloud and sign­ing back in again. If this doesn’t help and the ‘-’ but­ton in In­ter­net Ac­counts pref­er­ences is greyed out, so you can’t even delete the iCloud ac­count, you may have to delete ~\Li­brary\Mail\V2\MailData\Ac­counts.plist. Re­boot and you should be able to recre­ate your iCloud ac­count in In­ter­net Ac­counts pref­er­ences.
