Wanted. Mac guru to assist me (PC user (28 years) in my business, but very new to Mac and not a total idiot) to:

• set up my emails on my iMac - for the last 6 months I have used Outlook on my iMac but I am now fed up with it and want to use the Mac email program because everybody tells me that it is better - but nobody tells me how. My emails come from four sources - an external provider for my work stuff (I can make sure my domain provider is available), Bigpond, Hotmail and Gmail for my various personal stuff. I want all of them to come into iMac. I have all the passwords.

• show me how to sort files to folders in Finder - I have imported a number of folders and documents from my PC but I just need to be walked through the steps to make and manage folders in an iMac. On a PC it would be easy but .... Managing is the important thing - Finder is, no doubt the best but it ****** me off and is the single thing that might make me revert to a PC. So I must be missing something.

• make my iMac synch perfectly (at the very least - email, calendar and address book) with my iPad (a month old but hardly used) and my iPhone (6 months old and, compared to my old BlackBerrys, wonderful). Steve Jobs said it can be done. Yes I have iCloud.

• sort out some formatting issues with the address book - some, but not all of the imported Outlook contacts have the phone numbers formatted in US rather than Aust format.

• probably some other stuff which I will think of.

Not rocket science. But I want to get an idea of what you are doing when you do it so I can learn - so 40% a tutorial.

Assume 3 hours.

let me know
I also have all the knowledge required to work on a Mac for a switching from PC user. :) Please check my reviews for my help with people operating on macs, and feel free to ask any other questions prior to assigning the task!
Hey there!

I can definitely help you with this! Worked at the Apple Store's Genius Bar for around 2 years, and in an area named personal setup where I helped people who were new to mac set everything up! I also held workshops, so I'm very good at teaching and providing tutorials. :)
I am familiar with everything you want to do.

I've owned and used a Mac since 2010 (making the move from PC which I'd used since early 2000's). I've also used iPhone's since , and I also use an iPad 2.

I've got plenty of experience with giving people tutorials (the old folks always seem to need help with their PC).

I have also set up and migrated content from an iPhone 3 to a 4 for a guy on Airtasker..

Bid includes Airtasker fees and my Pro 5 Star status. :)
I could help you do this. I worked in software for some time on PCs with some Mac experience.
