I have a problem with my signatures too, and perhaps, this may help. My problem was, that on my Mac, my Apple ID (my mail address) was used not only for login but also as mail address and alias for the iCloud mail account. And I can't change it. After deactivating the iCloud mail account, I was able to use the signatures of my normal mail account again.

(I know this post is really old, but in case someone with the same problem reads it, this is what I did.) I'm not sure if this is the same problem, but when I read an email (gmail account) on my iPhone and then signed into my gmail account on my PC, the email would not show up in my inbox. It would show up in All Mail, but I couldn't even move it to my Inbox....

There is a mail filter rules system called 'sieve' which allows you to go as crazy as you want. Usually this is implemented on the mail server side, and either configured there, or from the mail client using a plugin. While technically not a correct answer, this would be your best bet. An Apple Mail for OSX plugin exists called SpamSieve which is as the ...

Figured it out; if I go to "View," there's a "sort by" option. Thanks for bearing with me!

Just above the rows of emails there is a dropdown that says "Sort by"... This can sort by date, flags, mailbox, etc. At the bottom of this list, you can choose to have oldest or newest messages at the top. Check to make sure you have newest selected.

Archived mail keeps reappearing in Inbox … Smells of a database inconsistency. I rebuilt the mail database by deleting the Envelope Index files from /Users//Library/Mail/V3/MailData/ Critically: did you quit Mail – and allow time for completion of that quit – before those deletions? Some of the many articles about Envelope Index lack that ...

Had the same issue, and for me it helped rebuilding the inbox. Select the Inbox then go to the Mailbox menu and then select Rebuild in the bottom of the menu. If the option Rebuild are disabled, make sure you are in Mailbox view so you can have the folder selected. To get the Mailbox view click Mailboxes in the Favorites bar, or choose View > Show Mailbox ...

First i would try and isolate the problem. Is Mail.app taking the same amount of memory on a new user account, im talking about a OS user account (Create a new test user in System preferences -> Users and Groups -> +) In case it does i would look at "/Library/Application Support/Apple/Mail" and compare to a known good system (which only should contain ...

I've been looking for an answer to this as well. Here's how i resolved it. I found the file that stores the username in ~/Library/Accounts/Accounts3.sqlite. I used the sqlitebrowser app from http://sqlitebrowser.org/ to open it. Drag and drop Accounts3.sqlite to the dock icon to open the file. Click the Browse Data tab. Change the Table to ZACCOUNT. I ...

For the version of Mail.app included in El Capitan (checked 10.11.5), there is a very nice button dropdown close by: The setting is maintained across emails and restarts.

I am answering my own question. I know it is possible to transfer user data from one mac to another by using the migration assistant. In my case this does not apply because I only want to copy my complex Mail setup and no other data and config. After some experiments I found the following to be working: On your destination Mac in SystemPreferences/Sharing ...

It is possible that you set up a "rule" in your Mail.app that automatically deletes VIP emails. Inside the mail app, hit Command+, to open Preferences then go to the Rules tab, and press the "Edit" button with each created rule selected. Here's an example rule you might have created (accidentally or purposefully) that could auto-delete VIP emails: Be ...

One way is try to "rename it" add .jpg If the file is not corrupted it will work.

Go to Preferences > Rules. See if any rule is deleting VIP messages. If any rules rules are deleting VIP messages, Just delete Them.

Well, this seems to have cured itself. I left the machine asleep for 3 days while I was away, and when I got back, the window was no longer phantom, but normal, and I was able to send the email. One thing suggestive of the cause is the SMTP server that had been associated with the from address of the email. This had incorrect credentials. The Inbox for ...

I too, lost my VIP folder, did some research and found a solution that worked. Locate an email (any email) from someone you'd like to mark as VIP in Apple Mail. Hover over that person's name in the from field — it doesn't actually say "from" but it should be obvious what I'm referring to — the name above the "to" field. A gray outline of a star should ...

I haven't used the client side mail filters for while, but I don't think it's a bug. As a alternative workaround you can use server side gmail filter. So, incoming email messages, like mailing lists are already sorted on the server before they show up in Mail. It is so much faster than sorting them locally.

Go to Mail -> Preferences -> Viewing and un-tick "Include related messages" in the View conversations section.

Currently this isn't possible with the built-in Mail rule set in Yosemite. As mentioned by user3439894, you have to rely on a third-party utility. Here’s a screenshot from Mail Act-on site. You can build your own rule using the additional third-party rule set e.g. Add CC Recipient. So people we see that you have added them to Cc list.

When you attach a folder to a email in Mail, even thought it looks like an individual folder in the email, both in the composed email and then the sent email, nonetheless the contents of the folder when sent, is zipped into a single .zip archive that is base64 encoded for transport. It is the .zip file that's received by others and there should not be a ...
