I had the same problem as you. I did some digging around and found a solution that used to work back in the OSX 10.8 days and stopped working with OSX 10.9. Oddly enough, it works again with OSX 10.10.1 and Mail 8.1 (1993). There are multiple parts to this - an AppleScript that you compile into an Application, a text file containing your random quotes, two ...

Uncheck (Mail->Preferences->Viewing) 'Use classic layout'.

In Yosemite (I'm on 10.10.1) I can do the following: Mail > Preferences… Viewing Tab Uncheck "Use classic layout" Uncheck To/CC label in message list Uncheck Contact photos in message list List Preview: None In my toggling of options, the message pane itself disappeared. However it was made available via a grab handle at the right edge of the screen. I ...

In mail preference, I clicked 'use classic' in view box. Then went to the email window, grabbed the line at the top of the preview of the mail message and pulled it down to the bottom to close the preview pane. Then you will have only two columns, the mailbox column and the email messages list.

Gmail works on a system of "labels", which is represented in IMAP (a protocol used by email clients to talk to email servers) with traditional folders. The "tabs" you are referring to show up as "category:social", etc. in the search bar in Gmail when you click on them. There is no representation in Gmail's IMAP server for these categories, therefore Mail ...

Never mind. Despite the fact that the compose window shows the .svg as an attachment, if you send the email to yourself, it renders properly when you receive it.

Well, you could reboot your maill to verify whether or not you have changed the password .

This is not exactly the same as the minimum font size setting that was previously available, but it can rectify the issue in most irritating cases. (Namely, email from outlook users) Mail.app has a CSS resource file that it loads in the Webkit view used to render messages. You can find it in the Mail.app bundle here: ...

Try to set your settings to the what you see below, this may fix your issue.

The Yosemite update appears to have fixed the problem. Now running OS X 10.10.1, with Mail version 8.1, the unread marks are updating instantly. UPDATE: I was too optimistic. It's better than it was, but there are still messages marked as unread that I have read.

I have used that way for creating an HTML signature in mail: Create a new signature with a preferred text Full close mail app Go to: Library ▸ Mail ▸ V2 ▸ MailData Open all files with .mailsignature extension until you find the text that you have writed in the first passage Copy that file in to your desktop Unlock it Put your HTML code Save and lock again ...

If you search using Spotlight (from the Home screen), you can use to: and from: qualifiers, as well as flag and unread status.

OK, the only settings i found that might cause that is in the Outlook web client. Try setting it to as shown in pic above. I assume the IMAP sync is doing something it should not. But you can try resenting the outgoing server for outlook in Mail app. type smtp.live.com Use this Apple tool to double check your email settings.

Have you tried quitting Mail, launching a Terminal and putting in defaults write com.apple.Mail MarkAsReadDelay 0

Everything I've read (granted most of it, quite old) indicates that you need to include the words "smtp server" before "addsmtp", even though it should be quite obvious from the context. There is also apparently a bug in the way AppleScript handles references to the new server. Remove from the first set smtp server to the end of the script, and replace ...

This helped in my case (same error message, IMAP-server, deleting messages always popped up this error): MAIL->PREFERENCES->"TROUBLED ACCOUNT"->MAILBOX BEHAVIOUR: removed the tick at "store deleted messages on server".

What you need to do is open your Hotmail, Gmail, or what ever mail account you have through Safari browser or MSN and all your folders will appear in them as usual. They do not appear in the regular app icon for mail on your iphone or ipad

There is no higher version than 8 for Apple's Mail app. Maybe is your auto configure talking about Microsoft Outlook version which is higher than 10.

There's a much easier and more effective way to do this: go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard tab and click the "Modifier Keys..." button. From there, you can set the Control key to behave like the Command key:

In Mavericks Mail: The shortcut for Flag is shift- cmd - L to assign the Urgent Flag. There is no Cmd-Opt-Ctrl-F in my Mail app. However, if you try to add that shortcut in keyboard shortcut it will alert you if that short cut is used by someone else and show you by whom.

Same deal - I had the same issue then resolved by creating a new message, closing the message out, then saving it as a Draft. Magically my draft folder appeared. Problem solved. Not a great user experience though!

As mentioned here as well, you could try to set the following in your Terminal: defaults write com.apple.Mail MarkAsReadDelay 0

Go To Mail -> Preferences -> Junk When junk mail arrives, say: Perform Custom actions Click on the Advanced button at the bottom, which just turned up to be active. Then say "Mark as read" in one of your actions: (I am sorry the second screenshot is german, i hope you get it though)

You can also try to decrease the delay threshold to zero. That worked for me. Perform the following on your Terminal: defaults write com.apple.Mail MarkAsReadDelay 0 But you should report this to apple as well since it definately looks like a bug.

Unfortunately this does not work out of the box. But there is a nice and free plugin called Herald which gives you this exact feature back, and many more on top. (See Version 4.0.8 (Mac OS X 10.9) by clicking on "Old Versions"). Please close your Mail.app before installing.

Not certain for Yosemite, but on Mavericks it's on the left of the window, level with where you choose the image size to send

When you remove an email account from the iOS mail app, it removes all the emails (and other data) from the device. There is no way to keep mail on the device from an account that was removed. If you leave the account(s) signed in to the device, you can set the mail app to only fetch new mail manually. This would allow you to have the mail on your device, ...

Maybe this is because you are connected to that Exchange server. You could try to disconnect from it by taking that account offline (Mailbox -> Online Status -> Take "YourAccountName" offline) and try to edit the account then. If that does not help, try to delete that account and create it again with the corrected credentials.

Yes THE Anonymous User .... I had to read again. just bcz of you.. There is more than one question. He doesn't have one problem. He seeks a better way for each sentence he puts there. The only thing I forgot to mention is the app. Numbers. You can import the entire address book to NUMBERS. You got to be in the situation to understand and help.:)

I would backup the local storage of all mail accounts (found in ~/Library/Application\ Support/Mail). Then I would delete that directory and remove all mail accounts from System Preferences > Internet Accounts. You can also go into Keychain Access and ensure that no relevant passwords are saved. Now you have a clean slate so you can confirm that the ...

I suggest just re-entering your password in the preferences pane (Command + ,). You should not lose any emails from that as this isn't reinstalling the account but simply refreshing it's access to your mail server. IMAP folders are saved online in most cases anyways, so you should have no problem there with a reinstall if needed. Best of luck!

Try linking/adding a mail account to your Mac through System Preferences -> Internet Accounts. See if that fixes it. (Which of course, it did. Might as well get the rep for it ;D )

To add Microsoft mail accounts to mail, you have to select 'Add other account...' from the internet accounts list. Then enter your hotmail email and password as normal.

Emails are stored in sub-directories located in ~/Library/Mail/V2 in .emlx format. This allows you to do a global plaintext search within a specific time machine backup folder. I wrote a shell script to search for text within all .emlx files in a specific time machine backup. Alternatively you can do a drive search in terminal (what my script automates). ...

Maybe this is a new setting but GMail has a setting under IMAP that you can limit the number of messages per folder - starting at 1000. GMail >> Settings >> IMAP Settings >> Folder Size Limits

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.
