You're missing the point. You can't select a folder to use for those classifications if you can't see it in the first place.

You can add HTML img tags (linking to your social images) by manually editing your Mail.app email signature files. These will NOT show as an attachment on the recipient's email. Of course these will only work if the recipient's email client loads remote images. Signature Location The .mailsignature files will be in one of two locations depending on whether ...

You can add HTML img tags (linking to your tracking pixel) by manually editing your Mail.app email signature files. Of course these will only work if the recipient's email client loads remote images. Signature Location The .mailsignature files will be in one of two locations depending on whether or not the email using the signature is an iCloud account. ...

Don't know what your current settings are, But for future safety, in mail → preferences → accounts → mailbox behaviours, keep trash mails for a month. In case they were deleted by an inadvertent action. If there were a backup, ~/Library/Mail/Vx (where x is a number) would have the mails. You can try though. You can also ask your IT department(if any) to ...

The first option, System Preferences → iCloud → Mail, controls whether the iCloud Mail account is available in the Mail app. Unchecking this option will remove the account from Mail, along with all the associated email. This won’t permanently delete the mail: it will still be accessible on iCloud.com, and in Mail if you switch the option back on. ...

Beta software are supposed to be for testing purposes. Specifically BetaOS is released publicly for tech enthusiasts only and that's absolutely not recommended to install on anyone's primary machine. It seems like Apple is trying to force use of firewall which is creating trouble for Internet related apps (Chrome, Mail, Safari). You can investigate with ...

A regular AppleScript saves properties and global variables (including variables in either run handler) in the script itself (the script file is modified). This is how persistent properties have been implemented, but now this can run into accessibility permissions issues, since modifying an application will cause the system to see it as a different one - ...

Have a look at your "Mail" app. Then Preferences, General, Default mail app. Set it to Google Chrome.

I have solved this problem by removing my Google account in Mail and making my Google Gmail address a normal (IMAP) account. Since then no more pop-ups.

I always compose my mails then save them as draft which lets the processing of links happen. Have you verified you’ve given the software time to process what you type? This is the simple way described here: Create hyperlink on Mail.app/Notes.app on iOS Your adding an alternate text needs something more complex and since Mail does not support markdown or ...

I found this answer on Apple Community website useful. It also works to my situation. I think the reason is the Mail app does not support 2-step authentication well. So don't use the Gmail portal to connect your Gmail, but generate an app password from Google website and manually set up your Gmail using the normal email portal in the Mail app.

Outlook is (for comparison purposes) a glorified IMAP server. EG it keeps everything on the server and Outlook is just viewing and changing data on the server. So what you need to do is to tell Outlook to stop looking on the server for changes, which it does every few seconds. Fortunately there has been an option in Outlook for a long time to allow you to ...

You can turn it off in System Pref -> Notifications. Some settings let you hide it from desktop while keeping it in Notification Centre for future DND is another remedy. Another way is to temporarily uncheck all the services you use with the account in System Pref -> Internet accounts, select account and uncheck all in "Use with"

If you have any services or other apps that send or receive e-mail on your Mac through the Mail.app, the latter may be opened every time the service tries to send an e-mail, even if you quit Mail.app (CMD + Q). Seeing that no other solution fixed your problem, I guess depending on what you are doing, this might bring unexpected windows into the foreground ...

I believe I've figured this out. This is the well known Gcal spam, but in my case, at least, and I assume @derpymcderpson's case, the Google calendar is linked to Calendar.app (formerly iCal). That means that an email alarm from Calendar when the Gcal spam is added sends an email from your primary email account using Apple Mail (or, more specifically, ...

UserHeaders For Apple's Mail.app, you can use the default UserHeaders to provide a dictionary of key value pairs to insert into the headers of outgoing e-mails. To set the Disposition-Notification-To header to email@address the following command can be used: defaults write ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.mail/Data/Library/Preferences/com.apple.mail.plist ...

Harder way! If you know the contents of the mail search for it in ~/Library/Mail, and go to path like ~/Library/Mail/V6/<some-key>/INBOX.mbox/key/Data/2/5/Messages/52377.emlx V6 may be different for other versions of macOS or Mail. For partial emails, remote content might be needed to download first.

Actually that functionality is beyond simple. Drag the email from the Mail.app window to the desktop. When you reach the desktop the pointer then contains acircular green "+" Drop the email there and you now have a single message as an .eml file

Apple Mail has this functionality. It is as simple as File > Save As > choose raw source for .eml format.

A theoretical solution... I find my Mac Mail signatures are stored in the folder at ~/Library/Mail/V6/MailData/Signatures. You may be able to copy the contents of the folder at this location from one computer to another. Hit ⇧⌘G (or Go > Go to Folder... in the Finder) and enter ~/Library/Mail/V6/MailData on the computer that has the signatures you wish to ...

Tons of mails in a draft state is how things worked before IMAP and mail sync on iOS got better at handling this. Especially with gmail, this was a routine thing - dozens of drafts saved (littered) along the way. I think you are fine if you know you have a secure password, aren’t seeing actual mails sent and can delete the mails. Extra bonus on the multi ...

Try to enable less secure app access in https://myaccount.google.com (If you have several gmail account, check if this page is connected to the right account). In my case it was OFF, I could download the mail, but could not send them.

At the top of the Mail app, there is a toolbar as shown below. As shown above, there are buttons to increase and decrease the size of the font. If these buttons do not appear on your mail viewer you can edit the toolbar by going to the View menu item and selecting 'Customize the Toolbar'. When you click on this you get the panel shown below. The red line ...

Sure. Have Apple mail client use IMAP protocol to leave a copy on the server and just don’t delete on iOS. Next time your machine deletes things off the server, the next IMAP sync will clean up things on the iPhone automagically.

This is definitely something they should have implemented by now since large umbers of people are now using their smart phones as their primary email reader. Currently, this is how I'd do it: In iOS Mail tap on the Search field at top of screen Type [SPAM] in the search field The screen will show results under various headings Swipe up until you see the ...

You can set a mailbox rule, that when a message is both in trash, and is a Meeting request, move it to the inbox (or a folder/area of your choice). Screenshot is OSX which I imply that you are using. This would be possible on Windows too with a similar approach.
