Finally used Dosdudes Catalina Patch to install the latest version of OSX on my MacBook Pro (15-inch, Late 2008), which was a cinch. However after a reboot, one of my email accounts Exchange decided it wanted me to re enter a password. Unfortunately upon opening System Preferences I was presented with the error: “There was an error in internet accounts preferences” and the pane closed itself.
Googling the error I found an extensive Apple support list, and one of the answers directed me to the article MacOs Catalina: There was an error in internet accounts preferences from TelnetPort25. A rather longwinded hacking of a SQLite file.
I quickly convinced myself that this surely wasn’t necessary and went looking in the account preferences of mail. I found that a password was not present in Server Settings, upon clicking save an alert appeared telling me Mail “could not verify connection”, back to Settings app I went and low a behold I was able to sign in into Exchange as normal. No more “There was an error in internet accounts preferences”. Done.
