It's an old post and I couldn't find any other information in Google about this so I thought I should write it here. I would make a list of those emails you want to delete and then create vcards or some sort of method to create duplicate emails in address book. Then assign them to a group. Basically create a new folder and create put all contacts in this ...

I had a couple of e-mail accounts still set up in Mail which no longer existed on my mail server. I disabled these in System Preferences > Internet Accounts, and since then (which is admittedly only three minutes), I haven’t been able to reproduce the bug.

The list of accounts is stored in the property list located at: ~/Library/Mail/V2/MailData/Accounts.plist The account data itself is stored in ~/Library/Mail/V2/<account-type>-<email-address>. This entire folder can be deleted for the account you wish to remove.

How about using opensnoop to try to work out what Mail is doing? opensnoop is one of the tools that make up the Dtrace toolkit. It is part of the OS. sudo opensnoop | grep Mail That command should show you what files Mail is opening. That might point you in the right direction to what it is doing.

Usually that is done in Mail-View-Sort by: select your choice (see if sort by unread is checked) If your selection does not stick (remain) the try repairing the permissions using the Disk utility.

Yes it does, just open Mail.app, then open the Preferences window from the menu bar. Select the Viewing tab and then choose "Use Classic Layout". I've tested this with OS X Yosemite.

The answer to your question is : No. Here is a screen of my Yosemite's Mail.app Did you tried restarting it ?

I had the same exact issue. I started using the application specific password generated by Google before I had the issues. When you set up your account in Apple mail, you are asked to enter the application specific password. I had no issues receiving gmail after that, but also could not send gmail through Apple mail. I had to go into the advanced settings ...

As stated before, all this means is your outgoing server credentials are incorrect in the Mail App. In order to check the outgoing server's credentials go to Mail menu > Preferences > Accounts > find your Gmail account. Click on your gmail account then under "outgoing server" check what server is chosen by default then click "edit smtp server list" at ...

I also don't like the view of Apple Mail because it's very confusing with more than one account with these accumulated top-folders for Inbox, Sent, Drafts... I go for Airmail app since more than a year which completely separates the accounts and you can switch view between the single accounts and all accounts. Even in the all accounts view you can easily ...

I have also gotten this error recently and the fix is simple. I am not exactly sure where, but somewhere in the mail app (probably in the preferences) there is a setting to change which outgoing mailbox it uses. When it happened to me it was set to an "offline" mailbox and all I had to do was change it to an "online" one. Restarting the mail app may be ...

The challenge is that Gmail uses "Labels" to attach to messages, and messages can have zero or more than one label, while IMAP puts messages in folders (Inbox, Trash, etc) and every message is in one, and only one folder. Thus, when Mail.app tells the Gmail server to delete a message from the Inbox the Gmail server can not relibely tell if it should just ...

Take a look at MailTags from http://indev.ca/MailTags.html - it'll show Gmail Labels in a separate column.

Not sure if anyone ever answered this. I came here looking for a solution which was ever so simple. In the Signatures 'section' of preferences uncheck the box that says to have the 'signature' above quoted text. That's it! Cheers!!

Same issue, and on two different machines. One is a MBP (mid 2010) the other is an iMac (early 2013). I am getting mail from an Exchange server. I find that closing and reopening mail will temporarily solve the problem. I also find that switching mailboxes and switching back works.

Assuming you already have the AOL mail installed on your system, go to Apple Mail (open it)- preferences Select the Default mail reader to AOL. The cmd i is standard Safari keyboard shortcut to open your default email (AOL) and to send the current webpage- nothing to do with AOL setting it up.

I am having this problem when pulling mail in from a Gmail account. It was not happening yesterday, but is happening today. If I quit and restart Mail, the read messages are updated.

You can't do it by addressee. By default it will reply from the email address you were sent the email to. Otherwise, you could try Prefs > Composing > Send new messages from... Account of selected mailbox, for an on-the-fly solution.

You can implement a mail merge using AppleScript. Gianugo Rabellino shared his initial AppleScript for creating such messages in Poor man’s mail merge in Apple Mail. The comments on Rabellino's post suggest improvements and other approaches. Bryan Klein's Applescript for Simple “Apple Mail” Merge Feature builds on the AppleScript and provides a copy to ...

In Mail, click on the Window menu then Previous Recipients. To locate people not in your address book, click on the empty column header all the way to the left (to the left of Name).

Not sure if you still have this problem, but this confused me too. I have been using Sparrow during Mavericks. After upgrade to Yosemite I decide to give the native mail.app a try. It looks good, but I was confused that it seem when adding multiple email accounts, it will show the structures, like folders, labels, etc in separate, but has a together inbox, ...

Mail will be stored in ~/Library/Mail. Gmail and Yahoo typically use IMAP, which means the messages are held on their server until you delete them. Doubtful that this is what is eating up a big chunk of your drive space; my Mail folder weighs in at just under 9GB for nine accounts, one of which has messages going back 8+ years. There are a few options in ...

When utilizing an IMAP account, you may see a delay in marking read when connected to the mail server, as it issues the mark read command to the server first and waits for a response before doing so locally.

Open Mail preference and uncheck the Use Classic box in the View tab. Now you will see the list of all messages without any preview. Next one is bit hidden (do not know why) On the right side of the mail window you will see a thicker vertical border line.

You can set up distinctive signatures, and link different ones to each account [in Mail/Preferences/Signatures]. At one point I had an account that was being forwarded to me, but didn't have the capability to send outgoing emails. Kept getting errors when I would inadvertently just try to reply from that account. So I made a sig for it that was 36 pt ...

It looks like you might not have actually "trusted" it, but rather made "exception" for it as detailed here: https://blog.httpwatch.com/2013/12/12/five-tips-for-using-self-signed-ssl-certificates-with-ios/ If you did import the certificate, then the above website shows how to remove the "profile" that contains the certificate.

The fix is to login to the google account affected, and then go to https://www.google.com/settings/security/lesssecureapps and select "Enable" for the question "Access for less secure apps." Apparently this results from a change Google made several months ago to improve security, which is indeed becoming more and more important as Google accounts are tied ...

Here is a 2 step process to do that. Part I First create a Smart Folder in Mail. There you will sort all emails specific to a selected account.

DockStar solved the issue for me. It now has an update to support both Mavericks and Yosemite when it comes out. I only tested in on Mavericks though, works great. The great thing for me was that I have exactly 4 inboxes, so I can add a badge for all of them.

Google uses Labels instead of folders, so in Apple's mail the messages with a given label will appear in a folder with that given labels name (assuming the Show in IMAP option is selected in Gmail's Labels setting for any given label). If this doesn't work for you you may want to try out http://mailplaneapp.com for your gmail/os x needs.

I can confirm that the IOS 8 Mail app (and on IOS 7) searches all IMAP mailboxes on all 5 of my mail accounts on different servers when I use the search box via the "All Mailboxes" list item in IOS Mail.

Inky mail does the similar work to GMail's: sorts messages into cathegories. However, it uses its own algorithm, not reusing GMail's existing tab sorting (so might be less intelligent, but works with any mail).

you can also do custom vibration, which I found was great. under sounds --> new mail--> vibration-->custom--> create new vibration. Just tap it gently once only and remove our finger.
