I updated a friend's Mac A1342 from Lion v10.6.8 to El Capitan then to Sierra v10.12.3. You can't update 10.6.8 to Sierra direct as minimum requirement is version 10.7.

Mac was a bit slow after the update as photoanalysisd and other daemons are running in the background. I also decided to upgrade the RAM from 2 x 1GB to 2 x 2GB, so I shut it down, when I switched it back on that is the time the progress/loading bar is stuck to 100%.

When setting up new POP account on Outlook 2016, testing it makes sending and receiving shows the error 0x80004005.
Computer is joined to a local domain, and email being setup is a POP account provided by a different mail hosting server.

Solution: On HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Cryptography\Protect\Providers\df9d8cd0-1501-11d1-8c7a-00c04fc297eb,

create or set a new registry DWORD value, named ProtectionPolicy, set the value 1

Disabling notification (receiving email) didn't work.

This article how to setup Draytek Vigor 2760 with iiNet FTTN/VDSL2 NBN plan.

iiNet supplied modem Technicolor TG789vac is blocking port 443 so OWA and Exchange ActiveSync for mobile clients are not working. Port blocking is enabled by default on iiNet so disable it via Toolbox or by ringing them.

I had to install the previous modem Draytek Vigor2760 back. NBN in client's premise is Fibre to the Node, so we are using the old phone line socket that was originally used when the client had the ADSL.

Screenshots below came up from an information combined from the following links:

Make sure you have the latest firmware for Vigor2760. At the time of writing, I am using the firmware Vigor2760_v3.8.2.2_VECTOR2.zip from http://www.i-lan.net.au/downloads/Vigor2760/Firmware/V3.8.2.2/Vigor2760_v3.8.2.2_VECTOR2.zip
