You should be able to reconfigure your password by doing that through System Preferences > Internet Accounts and select your Google account there. If you recently changed your Google password, a Google login popup should appear.

Here's one approach I found that appeared to work: For each flagged email that won't sync Mark it as "red" flagged in the Flagged folder (it should show in the Flagged folder even though it doesn't have a flag next to it) A red flag appears next to the message Clear the flag on the message The number of messages in the Flagged box should be reduced by ...

You are most likely not sending the message twice, but are seeing the sent message in mail, and then again from the server. If you uncheck the "store messages on the server" box under mailbox behaviors, you will only be saving the sent messages to mail.

I recently tested Mail in a new User account to find all the files that are modified after adding an account to Mail. These following files contain account info. I can't say with certainty that you will need to reset all files in order to reset your account. Remember to log out/in and empty the trash before resetting. Make sure you have backup if needed. ...

I found the answer on MacStories; it's also on SuperUser. Colliding menubar command names can be specified via their nesting tree, using ->. Thus the shortcut name in my original question becomes Message->Archive.

First, make sure this person is in your Contacts, including the email address you want to mark as not being spam. This is important because Mail checks there when determining what's spam. Then, go to the Mail --> Preferences, Junk Mail tab, and make sure the following options are checked: Enable Junk Mail Filtering Choose Mark as junk mail, but leave ...

My was crashing when I added Google Accounts, and the reason was, in one of the Google Accounts, I had created Mail Labels with slashes in their names i.e "/label_name/" and this was confusing the the Mail App to think it is a file path on the file system. I renamed my email labels, removing the slashes, and it stopped crashing!

You can actually restore mail messages directly inside Mail. Make the Mail application active, then enter Time Machine via the menulet. Works similar to file recovery in Finder.

The Mail.app stores all Messages in your User Directory: ~/Library/Mail/ Depending on your OS Version there is a Subfolder, f.e. "V3" for 10.11 and "V2" for 10.10., containing Subfolders for each Mailbox. The Library Folder is usually hidden, but you can access it in the Finder from the Menu "Go to" > "Go to Folder" (or CMD+SHIFT+G) and typing in the ...

The URL you state is by and large correct, but the details can differ based on your exact configuration. On my machine (which runs El Capitan, uses V3 in the mail path, and for a Gmail account where the IMAP Path Prefix is set to [Gmail]), the messages for the inbox are stored in the path you stated but messages for other standard folders are in the path ...

Mine are in a similar location, although the final folder name is slightly different than where you were looking. /Users/{user name}/Library/Mail/V{number}/IMAP-{email address}/[Gmail].mbox/ In the above, the curly braces denote variable strings based on your own situation, but the square braces around 'Gmail' are literal.

I'm not able to reproduce the error as follows on iOS 9.3.1 and an iPad Air 2: print this page from Safari and save as PDF print another page as above Compress both on OS X using finder and mail them to myself. I even added a screen image (PNG file) to test a mixed zip archive - and all attachments render properly on iOS after a one time "tap to ...

Are you using an IMAP account? If so, remove the account and add it again so it downloads your mailbox entirely from the server. Did you find the mailbox tree in your Mail.app trash or in you OS X trash?

Rebuild does not show up in the activity window, even when it is doing things in the background. I've experienced this first hand in the past. So, give it some time. However, rebuilding I think only helps rebuild the index file based on the messages stored on your computer. It does not compare notes with the server, I believe. Honestly, I would just ...

Whatever opens MAILTO:// links is set from within the Mail.app itself Go to Mail > Preferences > General and the top pop-up menu lets you set any installed application that the OS recognizes as being able to respond to those links as the default email application. There used to be hacks that let a web browser with a webmail client open respond to mailto ...

Notwithstanding any sneaky Terminal commands I know not about, OS X will always have the need to open some app upon clicking an e-mail link. Literally any app of your liking will do. Such an app might be an app you don't mind being opened. Like… the Finder! Open Mail Preferences and go to the first tab, General. Choose the pop-up menu for Default email ...

This is not necessarily meant to be a complete answer and is too much as a comment. Because the Mail AppleScript Dictionary lacks some verbs, e.g. send again, one therefore needs to workaround any shortcomings. The code below could be incorporated into your script. It uses System Events to manipulate menu commands to send composed messages from the ...

So apparently I had to disable rootless system integrity protection just to move the workflow file between folders. I still hope someone finds a better way of installing services in the mail app in el capitian, because having to do multiple reboots and disabling low level security features seems excessive when I'm just trying to pull data from two basic ...

I just added a new account and I needed to restart the Mail.app to have the From field show up in the New Message window:

Another way to do this is to utilize the "Contacts" software to set up the Email, as is explained under "Help" for "Contacts", and then under "Show Topics" and then under “Composing” and then under "Create Groups" and then under "Email a Group"... For me, the first option worked, but the second one did not work (names of all the Members of the group were ...

The Plugins MailHub and Mail Act-On have such options: MailHub MailHub is a 'smart' plug-in for Apple Mail that revolutionises email management. It learns as you work, suggesting likely filing locations to take the pain out of keeping your mail organized. It also allows you to set reminders on emails, so you can follow-up later.

I have found that following the steps in this article worked (MacOS Yosemite, Mail 8.2). Basically in the account settings, add all your aliases as a comma separated list to the Email Address field:

You should actually go to "Mail" app, then "Preferences", then "Accounts", then "Advanced". Not "System Preferences"

If accounts are inside a global Inbox, open the Inbox reveal arrow Right Click the individual account Inbox > Get Account Info Select the Messages on Server tab Wait for it to load, then you can select & delete any/all messages on the server

My hypothesis is that what you observe is happening because you are setting your IMAP account not to have all the message for offline consumption, but only headers. If you had it set to full messages, you would be decreasing your space even more, because the IMAP metadata needs to be kept in a database, apart from the full messages.

This discussion talks about a similar problem, but even worse: the user isn't able to put in their password. A few suggestions from that thread: reboot upgrade to OSX Capitan (the problem seems assocaited with Yosemite) relaunch Mail if relaunching doesn't work, try: quit Mail open Preferences->Internet Accounts - hopefully you won't need to log into ...

Yes it is possible to get access to a user's e-mails. This assumes the e-mails are stored on a server and the user gives you access. This will be the case for those using IMAP based e-mail accounts and for those using GMail. You will not easily be able to access e-mails uniquely stored within Mail.app's stores. See How can I access emails in Apple Mail ...
