Thanks for this. You helped me too. Although I had already set up Junk Mail and mail was finding its way into that folder, the Erase Junk Mail option was greyed out. I was having to select all the Junk Mail and right-click/delete it. I followed your instruction and found that Enable Junk Mail Filtering was actually un-ticked. Ticking it again resolved the ...

Got this working in OS X 10.10, Yosemite: Close Mail.app. Go to ~/Library/Mail/V2/MailData/. Edit VIPSenders.plist and remove all the senders. Save the file. Select the file and press Command + i to see information about the file. Check Locked under general info. Reopen Mail.app.

Unsure if you've resolved the issue but I've just had the same problem and fixed it. Select the trash folder in your new email account. Click 'Mailbox' from the toolbar and 'Use this mailbox as', then click on trash. Solved it straight away :)

I found the source of those repetitive crashes : a rule that tried moving email in a directory that does not exist anymore. Under 10.10.2 Mail would simply not do anything. Under 10.10.3 Mail 8.2 crashed and corrupt the mail index. Simply fixing the rules did solve my problem.

I know this one is a little old -- so here is an update of sorts. I had a hard time getting that answer's shell script to work correctly. I had installed Markdown via brew. On the shell script "Pass input:" set to "as arguments". I had success with this variation on the shell script: /usr/local/bin/markdown <( echo "$1" ) | /usr/bin/textutil -stdin ...

I also had extremely slow mail using Yosemite until I did this: From the Mail menu, click Preferences > Accounts > Mailbox Behaviors Drafts: Store draft messages on the server > leave unchecked Sent: Store sent messages on the server > leave unchecked Junk: Store junk messages on the server > checked Delete junk messages when > Never Trash: Move ...

The alternatives are described as Plain Text or Rich Text - however I am reliably informed that 'Rich Text' is, in fact HTML. (Thanks to @TomGewecke for correcting me on that in comments) Swap permanently in Prefs > Composing, or as a one-off in Format Menu, last item, or Cmd ⌘ Shift ⇧ T To prevent replying in HTML to an HTML mail, also uncheck ...

For the mailbox in question, in the Mail.app, go to Mailbox (top menu), and then select Rebuild. You may need to relaunch the app for the older messages to be downloaded.

Yosemite mail is horrible, if you have a large inbox it just kills an older machine. I have a 3ghz mini with 16gb of ram and it STILL crawls. I am on day 3 of it saying "incoming messages" and slowly the count grows larger and larger. Two apps is all I ask for, Safari and Mail, really people FIX IT. On my 2009 27" imac I had to restore from time machine ...

It appears this issue was fixed in 10.10.3 . I have been having the same issue for 6 months and was unable to fix it despite trying all of things that I had read. After I installed the Yosemite 10.10.3 update everything is working fine. Hopefully other people can download the update and it will start working for them as well.

Yes - this can be caused by three things. iCloud being messed up (and trying to sync your internet accounts) and corruption on the Mail settings and corruption in general in your user settings. To troubleshoot this: A. Write down your add/remove procedure and don't deviate from it. My guess is it should be: Quit Mail and make sure it doesn't launch when ...

I would start with making a smart mailbox to see if this is seen as a recipient. Here's what my attempt looked like: From there you can widen the search to Entire message if needed. Since it's not really "To:" you, the normal search keys in the Mail search like from:xyz or to:xyz won't be of use.

Have your tried the Developer Preview of Office 2016 for Mac? I have been using it for several mail merges and thus far, I have not run into any issues.

you can use Labels and Databases http://cristallight.com/LabelsAndDatabases/mailmerge.aspx

You need to configure these as 2 separate accounts in Mail. For some reason, to get it to work you will need to add the alias as an IMAP account rather than the standard Gmail account. When you authenticate for the alias, you will need to use the actual/original email address, not the alias email, in the authentication settings. I've been using this ...

This only works to effectively "hide" the previous recipient from the previous recipients list on your phone. Apple still keeps a file with all your previous recipients in iCloud. When you completely "Erase all Content and Settings" and set up as a new phone, then sign in to iCloud all the previous recipients are restored. In other words you have to do ...

What I did was , composed a new email , went back to my inbox and dragged and dropped the required emails into my composed email . I think it worked

This AskDifferent question sounds like a very similar request, shows this About.com article. From the above answer: If you want to apply the reply-to all the time there's a hack you can do this via Terminal: defaults write com.apple.mail UserHeaders '{"Reply-To" = "reply-to@address"; }'

Start new email. On the left you see a pull down arrow. It will open the option of Reply to:

In Mail, under the View menu, you can choose which fields to show or hide, including Reply To.

Mailmate allows extensive tagging (IMAP compatible). A very good mail client, btw.

Depending on how simple you need your notes, flags might cover what you need. Apple Mail allows you to put a colored flag on your mail by right-clicking it (you can add it to the menu bar as well). As soon as you start flagging mails there will be a view besides/under your inbox which organizes them by the different flags.

This is not a answer...but to show the result of a test It confirms a problem with using a dash with spell checker in Mail.app and Notes ect... on my MBA with 10.9.5 The result is sporadic, sometimes if the word before dash is correct it will ignore the word after dash, sometimes not. Interestingly if I enable check Grammar with Spelling it will work ...

I suspect that your answer here will be mail rules, and AppleScript. Rather than relying on parsing out the raw messages, you can create a rule to filter on the bad status messages and then run an AppleScript, and another on the Ok. To learn about AppleScript and the Mail dictionary: enter Introduction to Scripting Mail Mail rules are set in Preferences on ...

I just switched to Thunderbird as my email client works like Mac Mail should work. Set up time for all 5 of my emails was 20 mins. Everything syncs up across all devices.

Yes, I'm having the same issue after upgrading to 10.10.2 (Yosemite) a couple days ago. COMMAND-CLICK is another work-around as well.

Don't save drafts !!! Drafts are auto saved by OS.

I tend to believe this answer is incorrect, or at least not fully correct. The problematic Outlook settings have been known for years. However, the OP stated that the problem started after upgrading to iOS 8.0.2, which implies it worked before, without any settings changed on the senders' side. I am experiencing a similar issue. iOS 8 devices cannot ...
