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.

The smart mailboxes aren't real mailboxes—they're just filters stored in Mail preferences. You can't find the location of the smart mailbox because it's not actually stored separately on disk.

After trying all sorts of things with Keychain and other devices I finally figured out what is causing this. The offending 'account' was in the SMTP list. You can find this by going to 'Preferences' in the Mail app, select the 'Accounts' tab, click on the dropdown for 'Outgoing Mail Server' and there you can 'Edit SMTP Server list'.

I use Gmail for Work along with Mac Mail and how I got around this was by opening: Preferences > Accounts Then in the Email Address field I put a comma after the address that was there and then added the other address I wanted to be able to reply from. For me I added 4 different ones just by separating with a space and comma like this: me@gmail.com, ...

If you want to be able to reply with a specific FROM email address, you need to set up this email account in Apple Mail. When the new email account has been set up, you'll under the new email account's 'Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP)' setting have the server to use when replying - and by having this new account, you'll be able to choose it from the drop-down ...

Was the me@mtk.org account added separately to Mail or the Mac? If not, you'll need to disable forwarding of the me@mtk.org account to the me@gmail account and add the me@mtk.org account to Mail or the Mac.

I know this is a 4 month old question, but I wanted to add that if you're using your own domain with Gmail (and you've configured your aliases in Gmail settings) then there is another solution. Simple open the account in Apple Mail, and in the email address box add as many addresses as you want separated with a comma. e.g. email1@email.com,email2@email.com ...

I also couldn't export the entire mailbox - only 200mb were exported. After I did a Mailbox Rebuild (see Mailbox > Rebuild in the Menubar), all mails (1.25GB) were exported.

I would strongly suggest looking into the app SpamSieve, which functions in tandem with Apple Mail by assigning more stringent rules for sorting and which has a more advanced learning algorithm than that which is built in to Apple Mail. I've found SpamSieve to be pretty much flawless and am really glad it exists. It's kind of expensive, though; so you might ...

XQuartz, which is the OS X X-server implementation doesn't support native Aqua apps like Mail.app, just regular unix X-server apps - xterm, etc, so I don't think this will work for you. However, OS X does come with VNC built in, if you want to share screens from Windows. It's under Sharing in System Preferences, check the box for 'Screen Sharing'. See this: ...

The easiest (albeit slightly lengthy) way to do this is to create a custom service, like so: Create a new Automator Service. Have it take no input in Mail and put the following code into a "Run JavaScript" action: mail = Application('Mail') mail.includeStandardAdditions = true for (i in mail.selection()) { mail.selection()[i].delete() } Save the ...

There are two ways to do that. The easy way is to use the "List view". As long you use the preview window it will mark email as read as soon it shows in the preview window. The more complicated is to move the cursor upward then delete, now it wont mark the unread as read because it will move to next read (assuming it is above the just deleted). Try it, ...

To uninstall try with AppCleaner, it's free in the AppStore. Apple Mail is a system app so, in AppCleaner, try double click on the checkbox and then proceed to Delete the app. For Reinstall. Apparently you'll need to do a reinstallation of OSX. According to this Apple page, a reinstallation wont affect your files, can't tell for myself, I've never done ...

Open Help in Mail and search for can't send or can't receive. Walk through the steps to troubleshoot this. Last resort - open Window > Connection Doctor and dig into the specific error messages for each non green light account.

Sounds frustrating. I had a similar problem recently where they moved my account to a new server. Unfortunately I did have to just remove the account and re add one, which turned out alright after I fixed my rules and copied my ssignatures I would suggest disconnecting from the cloud, removing the broken account, then reconnecting to the cloud to see if it ...

Buscar has the gist correct, though I would add a step: backup your ~/Library/Mail folder (OPTION-Drag it to the desktop) then delete the account. One that is done add it back. If your old mail has vanished when the new account has been established just import the backed up mailboxes sitting on the Desktop.

This seems to be a known bug which has been around since (if Google is anything to go by) at least OS X 10.8 (!) and is still not fixed. That's modern Apple for you. None of these worked for me (e.g. the "Rebuild" option is greyed out, for starters!) but maybe they'll help you. Mail.app inbox becomes blank after a few minutes of use

In your IMAP folders, do you still have the junk folder inside the GMAIL folder ? If so, you should select it, and the choose "use as -> junk" in the mailbox folder.

May be relevant: An interface error appears to have crept into 10.10.4 The small dot on the Preview pane used to stop at top when dragged up. Now it disappears under top of split window. Solution?: carefully drag split window down from top again!...thought all my mail had gone!

Add your Yahoo! email as IMAP and upload your mail manually from the old —presumably POP— storage on your Mail.app. I haven't tried it myself but in recent OS X versions adding accounts is straightforward. If this is not the case and you have to configure it manually, Yahoo! offers relevant information to that effect here.

Do you have a Google "App password" set up? If not, you need one. This thread has a lot of information about how to do that: How to setup Gmail SMTP server for OSX Mail with 2-step-verification and App-specific password? If that is not the problem, it may be that the Yosemite upgrade broke it. I posted a detailed list on the apple forum of steps I took ...

I don't think closing the window "messes up" anything. Either your Apple ID is created, or it's not! Check if you can login using your Apple ID in related services like iTunes Store. If you can't login, then there was an error on Apple's side and you can repeat the process again. On the other hand, if you can login, then your Apple ID is already created and ...

When you click with the mouse button on an item directly above or below the currently selected one, Mail behaves the same way as it would with the down and up arrows on the keyboard. When you hit the down or up key to select the next item in the list, Mail is programmed so that it remembers your "working direction". Which means when you move the selection ...

Ok, so it seem like that by going into "Disk Utility" and doing the sequence "Verify Disk Permissions"->"Repair Disk Permission" did the trick.
