In the Menu Bar, go to Mailbox after selecting the sub-mailbox, one of your Sent folders, for instance, and then choose "Use This Mailbox For…". You can lump the redundancies together this way, but it's true that you will not be able to completely customize all the boxes.

The Mailboxes that are created by Mail app can not be modfied. Only Mailboxes that you created can be modified. Thus: Inbox, Draft, Sent, Junk, Trash, Archive and "on My Mac mailboxes" can not be modified.

You don't have to have them all in IMAP when you create the sub folders and sort emails into them. Instead of creating those sub folders under "ON MY MAC", you can create them under "ICLOUD". As long as your computers and devices are iCloud enabled, they all share the folders in ICLOUD. Just bring mouse over ICLOUD and you will see "Show" shows up on the ...

Do you see these strange attachments in some version of Outlook? In my own testing it seems to be that if there is anything after an attachment then Outlook interprets it as another unnamed attachment and generates an ATT0001.txt file (I'm assuming different versions of Exchange or Outlook might result in different names for the attachments). If you make ...

First, all your emails are still in your web version of MSN. You need to switch the MSN to IMAP type and it is called Outlook (the web version) of Outlook, not the office version. In your Mac Mail set up following: Choose Account Type: IMAP. Input the following as the Incoming Mail Server: imap-mail.outlook.com. Choose to Use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) ...

Don't set the 2 factor app-specific password you generate in Google on the Preferences → Account screen first. Go to the outgoing mail server settings first, set it there and come back to the main account setting and rekey that password. Surprisingly, this stupid gymnastics with the setting worked for me!

You are probably replying to the message from inside your gmail inbox which will use the gmail account as the sending authority since the email was sent to this account in the first place. The error therefor isn't with the mail.app it is with the way that your emails are sent to you. If you want to change the address in which you send your email from just ...

I tried your request: I selected 50 emails, then choose Print under File Tab. It took some time to generate the print files, but then it showed me print preview for 50 emails. Without proceeding (do not want to waist my toner), I see there is no problem in printing 50 emails all at once.

I've been able to fix the issue: In fact, it was the fault of OS X Server. In the server app, under the calendar tab, there is a checkbox "activate invitations via e-mail". The problem disappeared when I unchecked it!

If you've just set up Mail, it will attempt to download all the mail that it can find from your mail server. This can't be configured in Mail, only in the mail server/provider's settings.

Mail.app uses more than one approach to junk mail. Some spam gets reported by other users. You can forward your junk mail to spam@icloud.com and it gets added to Apple's filtering system. Mail servers sometimes mark messages as spam. When a tool like spam assassin has marked an incoming message as junk, Mail.app respects that and passes it to the junk ...

I fixed the problem downloading the OS X Mavericks 10.9.4 Update (Combo) from the Apple website and installing it again. Either the App Store version was broken or something went wrong during the installation.

The only work around I have found to add subfolders to the Archive mailbox is to add a new Mailbox (In Sidebar for the IMAP Account, Right click / New Mailbox…) Choose the account and for the name box enter: Archive/"Name of the New Folder" (without quotes) Remember the slash! This will create a new subfolder within the Archive! :) Anyone know any ...

A contrario to Outlook included with Office for Mac Pro 2011 it seems there's no option to "download only headers"... How ever I've seen in older version (or for POP accounts only) you could skip message that are greater than a determined size... (BigMessageWarningSize) I'd therefore suggest you to try another client or find an "unknown" setting you'd ...

Okay, so I've found a solution using AppleScript, it's a fairly big script but it's not actually all that complicated; it simply loops through the mailboxes of every count, skipping any specified in a list, and looks for read, undeleted messages older than the specified number of days. on run arguments # Don't run if Mail isn't open if application ...

I think @Buscar웃 is right, you need to fetch your mail before you know how much mail is in your inbox. I think you can use your Terminal for that, and with the combination of 'GeekBench' it might even look pretty. A common mailclient for OS X terminal is mail, it is already installed, but unfortunately I have no clue on how to configure it correctly. ...

In order for system to know the unread account of the "other" email account it has to access it! So you can not go around that. Showing the last accessed count has little use, it could be days old.

Also see ...

Before you delete it, see if you can repair Mail. In Mail, go to Window → Connection Doctor and let it verify your connections to see if all works there. Next step is to rebuild your Mail database.

Testing on MacBook Air with 10.9.4 and mail 7.3: To expand the preview window (right side) in the conversation view, there should be (I have it) a "see more from ..." in the first email (at the bottom of it, in blue font) of the conversation list. Clicking on it shows full conversation for each email in the conversation group.

I had the same problem and I discovered that under Preferences>Accounts>Mailbox Behaviors you can disable the "store junk messages on server" setting for each account and that seems to hide the junk mail that was apparently not visible in previous versions of Mail.
