It is most certainly a bug that needs to be addressed in future versions of OS X. I have the same problem and have found out the following curiosities: When I added a rule to change the color of encrypted emails to give at least a visual indication in the list view, it worked fine, so there's really no reason not to show the lock icon. The moment I added ...

I had same issue, the culprit was the iPhone's email client with its default preview feature. A preview fools the IMAP to believe it's read. Solution: to switch it off (go to settings -> email -> set preview to none.

Solved it by creating an app password for my gmail account and used it. After this I had to restart Mail.app and now it's possible to choose gmail-Account at from-list.

You could just go into Mail/Preferences/Outgoing Mail settings and verify the SMTP settings. Gmail uses smtp.gmail.com on port 465

In Mail.app 9.3 (and possibly earler versions—I've never tried) this can now be done fairly easily—more or less, anyway: In the mailbox list, beside "Smart Mailboxes", click "Show" then click "+" to create a new smart mailbox. For "Important", select messages that match all of the criteria "Message is in mailbox Inbox" and "Message is in mailbox ...

I am wondering if you take the actual mail files out of your ~/Library folder (drop them on the desktop) and then re-create your mail account(s), username, passwords, servers and the like you should then be able to import those files sitting on your desktop into the new accounts you just recreated. It certainly won't answer the question what happened but ...

Check that the account is set to the Home folder you think it ought to be... System Prefs > Users & Groups > [unlock] > Right click your account & select Advanced... Make sure the Home directory is as it should be. Don't change anything else. Add a comment if that doesn't fix it.

This problem is reported so often that it is likely there are multiple causes. But after many months of putting up with this exact issue, here is what worked for me: Mail => Preferences => General => Check for new messages The default setting is Automatically Change this to Every 5 minutes I imagine anything will work except "Automatically". My guess ...

Unfortunately Apple Support is a little vague on "Check for new messages" in Mail (El Capitan): General preferences. When Mail gets new messages from the mail server. By default, the option is set to Automatically (Mail varies how often it gets messages, based on whether your Mac is plugged into an electrical outlet). An IMAP account may get ...

More than likely, your Mac synced with your iPad and got data from iCloud. Go to Settings -> iCloud, and see if Mail is turned on. If so, and you do not want these to sync together, turn it off. Then, you can simply delete the accounts from the Mail app on your Mac. In regard to your question about other "surprises," while you're in Settings on your iPad, ...

I'm not sure if that is possible without additional software, but it definitely works if you use the tool Shortcat. With Shortcat, you can do a lot of things by keyboard that usually require a mouse. I bought a license almost three years ago to support the project, but apparently you can still use it for free, because it has not officially left beta yet.

I had the same issue and I managed to solve it by simply editing the Aliases for my account. What I did: in the Mail > Preferences > Accounts > select account, than in the Alias dropdown select Edit Aliases and than I've added a new alias, practically my email address: Full name: myemailaddress@whatever.com Alias: myemailaddress@whatever.com This solved ...

Mail in OS X El Capitan doesn't have this problem. Mark as Read & Mark as Unread affect all of the devices linked to your IMAP account.

You should be able to reconfigure your password by doing that through System Preferences > Internet Accounts and select your Google account there. If you recently changed your Google password, a Google login popup should appear.

Here's one approach I found that appeared to work: For each flagged email that won't sync Mark it as "red" flagged in the Flagged folder (it should show in the Flagged folder even though it doesn't have a flag next to it) A red flag appears next to the message Clear the flag on the message The number of messages in the Flagged box should be reduced by ...

You are most likely not sending the message twice, but are seeing the sent message in mail, and then again from the server. If you uncheck the "store messages on the server" box under mailbox behaviors, you will only be saving the sent messages to mail.

I recently tested Mail in a new User account to find all the files that are modified after adding an account to Mail. These following files contain account info. I can't say with certainty that you will need to reset all files in order to reset your account. Remember to log out/in and empty the trash before resetting. Make sure you have backup if needed. ...

I found the answer on MacStories; it's also on SuperUser. Colliding menubar command names can be specified via their nesting tree, using ->. Thus the shortcut name in my original question becomes Message->Archive.

Then, go to the Mail --> Preferences, Junk Mail tab, and make sure the following options are checked: Enable Junk Mail Filtering Choose Mark as junk mail, but leave ...

My was crashing when I added Google Accounts, and the reason was, in one of the Google Accounts, I had created Mail Labels with slashes in their names i.e "/label_name/" and this was confusing the the Mail App to think it is a file path on the file system. I renamed my email labels, removing the slashes, and it stopped crashing!

You can actually restore mail messages directly inside Mail. Make the Mail application active, then enter Time Machine via the menulet. Works similar to file recovery in Finder.
