Mail seems to stumble over incompatible bundles, at least on my system. I had to manually move Mail plugins installed in /Library/Mail/Bundles and ~/Library/Mail/Bundles out of the way to get Mail back up and running.

I had this problem and needed to clean out anything that had index in the name from this path: ~/Library/Mail/V2/MailData/ Now it seems to be coming back to life again.

I doubt you'll reach a limit. HFS+ which stores the file limits you to 2.1 billion files in a folder so you could have a lot of emails stored to archive. When you go to archive them, that one file holding billions of messages could grow to a size of 8 EB (and one exabyte is one million terabytes) so there's really little chance Mail app will prevent you ...

It is not possible by default, but you can download a plugin for the Mail app. The plugin is called TruePreview. It is said that it supports OS X Mountain Lion and below, but I had it working on my Mavericks machine. Anyway, here's the method: Quit the Mail app Download TruePreview (scroll down for latest versions) and run the installer Launch Mail.app ...

What's happening is that your iPhone is only fetching new data from the server only every so often, like every hour. To fix this, go into Settings->Mail, Contacts, Calendars->Fetch New Data and make sure that "Push" is enabled. Some mail services don't support Push, so the "Fetch" schedule below would be used. Scroll down and select "Every 15 Minutes" under ...

You could use a Mail Rule to redirect them to a specific folder, that will stop the notification, if your prefs are set accordingly. This is an example from my gateway notifications, which I don't need dinging & notifying every hour... Stop evaluating as the last step if you want no further action, otherwise the next rules will be applied, down the ...

Yes. I searched the dictionary for Mail.app and it's been removed. I would love to find the code and put it back. This just creates more misery for people dealing with non-technicals who 'don't get it'.

The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) defines that in a proper RFC, the RFC 6154. There you will find a list of special use mailbox denominations: \All This mailbox presents all messages in the user's message store. Implementations MAY omit some messages, such as, perhaps, those in \Trash and \Junk. When this special use is ...

I have seen this issue quite a few times and none of the solutions seemed to work very long. The issue kept on returning. I do think I found a cause - although I only test 4-5 times. It seems to be an issue that keychain access is open - strangely enough :) Close keychain down and mail works fine again without deleting anything

It happened to me as well in El Capitan Beta 4. A simple reboot solved the problem. Since you also tried that, i'd suggest empty caches (using cleanmymac or similars) reset PRAM at startup

I found a fix, Use this extension for Mac Mail: http://universalmailer.github.io/UniversalMailer/download.html It is available under the MIT license, you have to pay for the ad free version, but there are these other benefits to using it.

I had the same issue. My workaround is to open a new viewer window in full screen, which allows me access to my other messages in the preview pane, and ability to copy attachments, text back and forth to the full screen window through swiping with my fingers. Works pretty well.

Stars on Gmail are flags on Mail app. You can go ahead and remove the flags if you wish; the Flagged folder is a smart folder and removing the flags or stars will empty it. Or you can just leave them there, it depends on what you used Stars for. I wouldn't delete them though; while usually items in folders are just tags in Gmail, I'm not sure if deleting ...

I'm also seeking the same functionality, I can't believe that Apple just won't consider that many people archive message by default, no longer deleting. Please @Apple let us choose archive by default in OS X mail.app. As an interim solution, I use BetterTouchTool and setup a gesture to map to a keyboard shortcut key that I setup in OS X settings in ...

As forcer obliquely mentioned SMTP is for sending mail. And one of the most popular programs to do that is called "Sendmail." Not that you need to know that, but hey... Anyway to be able to send and receive email you need both an SMTP server and an incoming mail server that speaks either POP or IMAP. I won't go into Exchange here as it is Microsoft's own ...

Mail app has a weird tendency to mix SMTP servers, which may be the cause of your issue. Open Mail.app, go to Preferences > Accounts and select one of your accounts. Look for the "Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP):" dropdown; click on it and then on "Edit SMTP server list". Delete all SMTP servers that don't correspond to the accounts that you're trying to ...

There is a way to do this. Right Click on the Conversation in the Inbox Preview, Select "Forward As Attachment" this will separate each message, Send to yourself, and you will be able to open each message and print or save.

Short answer message: URLs are persistent, but Mail needs to be restarted so that its message ID database gets updated and the URLs are properly resolved.

While appreciate this isn't the answer you likely want, it would be much better to implement groups on the server and address all the students as a single address. This is how a lot of universities and colleges I've worked with have achieved this. Modules/classes have a name/code, and this forms the basis for the email address, e.g. cs101@myuni.ac.uk It ...

It's possible if you move (drag & drop) the Mail from the inbox to the mail drafts folder. There you can edit the mail by doupble-klicking, change the subject or text, close it and move it again to the inbox. Unfortunately the time-stamp is adapted as well.

Although Sorting by reply status is not possible, you can certainly Filter by reply status. Using Smart Folders you can collect all replied to messages in one 'folder' and unreplied to in another. These folders just gather the messages, they do not move them from their original folders unless you delete them. But this can help you keep mail sorted. Then ...

It appears that you may be in the United Kingdom, and it appears that there is an issue with how you need to set up email accounts within Apple Mail for .co.uk domains.

Did someone help you set up your phone? One way this could happen is that someone used their Apple ID to download apps on your phone. It could also happen if you restored, updated or migrated your phone on someone else's computer. The easiest way to solve it is by deleting and downloading them again with your Apple ID. The problem is, at least with ...

I have found Mac apps do not always work well with Google 2-step authentication. I recommend creating application specific passwords within Google authentication for Mail and Calendar.
