So it seems I may have just stumbled upon the cause myself; in addition to my active e-mail accounts, I also had two disabled IMAP accounts (no SMTP details) that I've been migrating from recently. It turns out that while these were listed in Mail they were not listed under Internet Accounts, contrary to what Mail would say when I tried to remove them. ...

I have had the same problem on my new MacAir running 10.11.3, for both yahoo & Gmail. For me it was solved by simply un-ticking & then re-ticking the mail option for both accounts -> Internet Accounts -> System Preferences. Both accounts then appeared in the Mail app and emails very quickly started to sync.

I use RCDefaultApp to tweak this type of setting and many other. Note that while this is an older app nonetheless it still works with OS X 10.11.x too. It's a Preferences Pane style app and it's freeware. You can read more about it and see screenshots at the web site (linked above).

Automatically execute html in an email. I'm not familiar with Smart Mailbox and what language it uses but below is a VBA script for Outlook that searches for the text "Click" which is a href to a URL, extracts the URL and executes it in Internet Explorer as a weblink. The code is very messy with very little documentation but it uses the Split Array ...

The Activity window doesn't offer any method for correcting problems anymore, but its status messages will alert you when something is going wrong with your mail service, and usually help you figure out what it is. If the Activity window shows problems with one or more of your Mail accounts, you'll want to try the two additional troubleshooting aids ...

The quickest way to run through the potential problems is to follow these steps: Check the keychain to find any entries that match your email accounts, then delete all of them. Reboot. Try to connect again, entering your passwords again. Check email again and see if the error reoccurs. If the error happens again, delete your email accounts using the ...

Mail can perform Boolean searches, but only in message contents, not in headers (such as Subject, From, or Date). When using Boolean operators, always use uppercase — AND, OR, and NOT — so Mail doesn’t search for the actual words and, or, and not. You can use a minus sign (-) as a shortcut for AND NOT, so, if you type Jack -Jill in the Search field, you’ll ...

To start with, you can try this Applescript: set interval to 7 set target to (current date) - interval set oldCount to 0 tell application "Mail" set box to mailbox named "INBOX" of account named "Your_mailbox_here" set maxMessages to count of messages in box repeat with index from 1 to maxMessages set currentMessage to message index in ...

Steve, I did as you instructed and sent an email to myself with the attachment. When it gets sent, the attachment is visible as like a normal attachment, but when I receive it back, its back to being an open document. Attachment Tamer is the only one that has worked for me so far, but Adam has not updated for El Capitan unfortunately.

I am looking for this also. This answer claims: "AppleScript doesn't offer any means of getting a list of replies to a message. My workaround is to get the message id of the message being replied to and search it in the sent messages." TimeToReply.com also provides a similar service, but they have locked out new users pending product updates (unfortunately, ...

I don't think it is directly possible. However, you can right-click on the attachment and select "Save to Downloads folder".

Its very simple. Just open mail, you can see file drop down menu(at the top left). There will be your preferences.

Not that I know of. However, depending on your email provider, you may be able to set up server-side rules, which wouldn't appear in Mail.app and would be applied before your Mail.app rules.

On my installation, Mail hanged whenever I tried to view the inbox. Deleting ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.mail/ or ~/Library/Mail/ didn't help, but when I moved a single message from my inbox to another mailbox in Gmail's web interface, Mail stopped hanging. When I moved the message back to the inbox, Mail started hanging again. I don't know what about ...

I had a similar problem, with a twist. I have some Comcast accounts, and found that they had recently upgraded from POP3 to IMAP. So I had to delete these on my various devices, and re-add them. For some reason, on one of my devices (Macbook Pro, El Capitan), iCloud did not propagate these new accounts, but when I tried to add them manually, I got this ...

Rebuild the Mailbox Try rebuilding the affected mailbox: Select the Inbox or affected mailbox. Select Mail.app > Mailbox (menu) > Rebuild Rebuilding the mailbox will cause Mail.app to read all the messages again from the server. Rebuilding often fixes problems and restores missing or malformed messages. From Apple's support document Mail: Rebuild ...

You could also do this with Mail rules. The gmail method is better in that the forwarding happens when Mail isn't running, but you can set up a rule as follows: The rules section is just in Mail preferences. You might try redirect instead of forward and see which "mom" prefers. I also added a bonus action of marking the message read - you can explore ...

There is an easy way to do that right in Gmail. In the settings tab, go to settings and first add a forwarding address under Forwarding and POP/IMAP. Enter the desired forwarding address and confirm it by entering the confirmation code or clicking on the confirmation link. Then go to the Filters and Blocked Addresses tab in settings. On the bottom of the ...

The folders that should not be there are empty, correct? Select the Drafts-Home-Drafts mailbox, in menu point Mailbox, choose "use this mailbox as" and select "Drafts". Do such also for the mailboxes under Drafts-Home that you want gone, i.e. "Drafts-Home-Deleted Messages" to Deleted Messages, and so on. Then do it for "Drafts-Home". Just deleting them might ...

*facepalm* Turned out that the password for this account had been changed on the server. Changing it back again, has fixed the issue.

When I upgraded to El Capitan the new mail.app took it upon itself to create email accounts for my configured SMTP servers. I use gmail and leave my primary home Mac on POP, as a kind of backup. Mail remains on the server and a copy remains on my Mac. It works for me and the volume of email I get. But here mail.app had turned the SMTP servers into an IMAP ...

In my case the following approach has fixed this issue, for the time being at least: (Using Mail.app version 9.2) Go to Mail > Preferences and select the 'Composing' tab. In the section of preferences relating to 'Responding' and change the settings so that they are the opposite of what you normally use. Save the changes. I then quit Mail. (In my case I ...

Have you tried just dragging the folders to rearrange them in the order you want? This works for me under Yosemite & Mail 8.2. Give it a try!

In the Window menu, there is the Connection Doctor, which has a checkbox, showing the toggle to enable / disable logging. You can also see at a glance in the menubar of the main Mail window, if it is enabled:

The only way I have found this to work is to copy (drag) the attachment to the Desktop and rename it from "Attachment" to "Attachment.eml" and drag it back in again. I've never had people tell me they cannot open the "Attachment.eml".

Actually, the Accounts tab of Mail preferences has no hint of "Subscriptions" or delegation, and the gear icon at the bottom of the left pane in the GUI is now missing under Yosemite and El Capitan. The referral to the Account Info window under Yosemite in the link above is erroneous under 10.10.5.

Mail.app uses the user component of your e-mail address as the Exchange username by default. To get through the configuration you can try entering an invalid e-mail address that consists of your valid username and domain, e.g. <exchange_username>@<domain>. You can then fix your e-mail address manually by editing two fields in ...
