After loading Mavericks it appears one of my mail folders, a key folder holding tax data has become completely borked. As you can see from the attached image I have duplicate home folders. I have already tried to rebuild this folder with no luck. Any other ideas?

No backups I assume? Are you using IMAP or POP3? – napcae Oct 28 '13 at 10:32
I have backups, but I assumed I could merge them. is that not possible? – chrishough Oct 28 '13 at 11:00
Previously, the only way to get even your own current mail folders / boxes back into Mail was to Import, one by one. Then Move the emails into the appropriate folders/mailboxes. Perhaps that still works. – Zo219 Nov 10 '13 at 5:38

Rule of thumb, use Time Capsule = Problem Solved.

I ended up migrated to => Away from Google.
