Apple Mail rules run automatically only the first time they're set. After that rules will only run manually. Going into Preferences and unchecking 'Active' will deactivate the rule and will never run it.

Your data will remain but you won't be able to add more data until you reduce it back to below 5GB, i.e. If you have a 6GB backup, it will be unable to backup until you repay or you reduce your backup size below 6GB.

I just had this problem on OS 10.10 (Yosemite). Here's how I solved it: Select the inbox. Left-click "Account Info" Select "Messages on Server" tab. Wait until the size of all of your mailboxes is calculated. Select the Archive mailbox and click "Show Messages" button. The archive now appears in the mailboxes bar.

With Exchange I had to add the account using the address I wanted to use (which broke Autodiscover) and then could specify the actual user account when Autodiscover failed. Ridiculous that you can't edit something once added.

OK. I'll try to answer both questions and if you need a follow on question to get progress that's fine as well. Don't su between users to test things that are broken. It's far better to let OS X allow fast user switching and get a real, honest terminal open for the new user to test All you should need to do is have the user used to set up homebrew allow ...

The problem was: every time when I sent a message from my new account, it somehow ended up being sent from my other old gmail account..and if person replied to supposedly my new gmail account, it still ...

Your Mail accounts are saved in your keychain. Take a look if they are there (with password ect..), you might see multiple entry (2) for each account. One is for sending (IMAP) one is for receiving (SMTP) If you have problems try restoring the Disk permissions in the Disk utility.

To Show individual files: sudo chflags nohidden Mail.app/ To Hide individual files: sudo chflags hidden Mail.app/ Depending upon the file, you may not need to use sudo, but it won't hurt in any case (other than ...

The best idea is to pay for (or set up) server side junk mail filtering. That allows all the clients to only spend time downloading non-junk. Have a look at Mail Route (10 percent off link from the podcast where I heard about it sponsoring most recently) - http://mailroute.net/thetalkshow.html You probably will spend more on the service than the cost to ...

"Smart" formatting (for lack of a better phrase) is added after the page is rendered and is not affected by CSS. Short of disabling the functionality completely, as shown in the other answer, you cannot affect it. The reason the color works is because the colored text is part of the page being rendered - you are declaring during rendering that it should be ...

You have to add the following meta tag in the head of the mail : <meta content="telephone=no" name="format-detection"> But beware : While this solves the branding/style issue, it also removes functionality that users may be accustomed to (and may prevent subscribers from being able to call you!).

Try going into the Mailbox menu and clicking "Rebuild". This will rebuild your mailbox and hopefully fix the problem. Note: This process may take some time depending on the number of messages in your mailbox

Also make sure the Mail & Messages is not unchecked in the Spotlight preferences pane. There are 3-rd party utilities that will delete your spotlight index (I use Onyx) forcing the Mac to rebuild it from scratch. I would try that after verifying the above item is checked off.

You can go for a re-index of the whole drive. Check out this help page at Apple: Re-index folder or drive Also looking in there might show that the mail folder has been hidden for privacy.

I use the Mail client under OSX 10.10.3 and tend to let the system run for long stretches. The other day, I determined that I wasn't receiving messages, and the situation deteriorated to where sent messages were sitting in the Outbox. Solution was to Restart the Mac.

Finder will re-create the folder, and this should ...

Open your Mail app preferences. Make sure you are using following setting. This way your Sent email is always going to be from the currently selected email account. Open one of the Sent mail folders. In there add the "From" to double check.

If you press cmd + tab, select the app (arrow or mouse) and then press 1 or arrow up it opens the window(s) in a preview style. Pretty handy if you have a app with lots of windows. You can click on the desired window to open. This also seems to work if you have minimised the window with the green button. Tested in Yosemite

If you close the window and with the red X then it is closed. If you minimise the window the it should open. So try minimising it instead. Also, when you closed the window and the application still is running then there sometimes is a keyboard shortcut to reopen the window. Remember that you need to be 'focusing' on the application to be able to do keyboard ...

This is a feature of using Mail.app in Full Screen Mode. To disable this behaviour, use Mail.app in non-Full Screen Mode. You can do this with the menu item: View > Exit Full Screen.

Check Preferences - Accounts - Mailbox behaviors that you don't have options 'Delete [Sent, Junk, Deleted] messages - when quitting mail' Also, how many messages do you have? If there are many (like around 10k and above), then I think this is inevitable that you have such app closing time. Probably in this case it is better to reorganize your mails. ...

Can you add the wrong account anyway and then use Mail's connection doctor to inspect the traffic and then determine what error you have specifically? Unless there's a console log listing the error, you're going to have a hard time knowing which error is happening when.
