Applications :: Remove Unread Message Count From Imap Folder?
Sep 16, 2010
I set up my gmail account in Mail and love it. My question is regarding the IMAP folders. In the attached image you'll see that one of the IMAP accounts has over 400 messages, but I only have 18 in my inbox itself.
Is there a way to hide or remove the unread message count from the IMAP folder in the drawer?
I am currently using a Gmail IMAP setup in Mail.app. Everything is working great, and with a Gmail Labs feature called Advanced IMAP Settings, I have hidden all of the main Gmail folders, like All Mail and Starred. I've already integrated folders like Sent and Trash with Mail.app's mailboxes.
Because of these, the [Gmail] folder in my account is completely empty. I now wish to remove it from the sidebar, since I don't need it there. How can I accomplish this?
I‚Äôm using Thunderbird 31.0 beta on OSX 10.9.3 and when I move a message from my IMAP inbox to my local folders, the message at first appears to be moved.¬†
1) It disappears from the inbox folder display and
2) It is copied into my local folder¬†
However, if I look in the IMAP trash folder the message is not there. When I go back to the IMAP inbox folder, the message reappears there. (It will also reappear if I simply refresh the IMAP inbox folder after moving the message).¬†
If I delete the message from my IMAP inbox folder, it is correctly moved from my IMAP inbox folder to the IMAP trash folder, which is how I have my server settings delete options configured. Changing the server settings delete options doesn't affect the problem when moving messages.¬†
Additionally, my local mail folders are configured as maildir, not mbox. (Not sure it that's relevant info..)¬†
Another user on the same IMAP server mentioned that they don't see this behavior with 24.6.0. I haven't tried to downgrade my Thunderbird version yet. I'd like to get confirmation that I have to, before I go through the process.¬†
The desktop icon for Mail shows I have unread mail. When I open mail, new messages appear to enter my Inbox. That is, Mail Activity shows a progress bar indicating 1, 2, 3 etc of 10 new messages are being brought into my Inbox. The unread mail tally increments but I cannot see any messages at all.
For some reason, soon after migrating from MobileMe to iCloud, the indicator showing how many unread messages I have disappeared.¬† The strange thing is the count DOES show for my other email accounts (POP server accounts through Road Runner)....it's the IMAP iCloud email account that shows NO count indicator at all.¬†
I have an iMac running the latest version of Lion.
The unread email count indicator DOES appear on my MacBookPro and my MacMini at work.....it's just the iMac at home that has this issue.¬†
How do you make the unread email count reappear?¬†
On my dock the message icon is showing 1 unread message. I click and it comes up saying I have an unread message from a number I have no knowledge of. I click on this and it just opens up the messages app on the last received message. I do not have a text from the number and question so can't view or delete it.
The title basically says it all. This is my first post, and I am pretty much a mac noob. I noticed that I was getting lowish on space, and noticed that the folder for my IMAP gmail account was taking up a lot more space then I thought it should. I've got a screen shot, but don't know how to post it at the moment. (I lack a free hosting account =
How do I get ‚Äúcharacter count" in my Mac‚Äôs Yosemite message application? My iPhone & Mac are connected so I can send text messages using the Mac. I need character count when I‚Äôm sending an SMS to a phone that can‚Äôt handle more than 160 characters per message.

Wondering if anyone else was having any weird issues with their iCloud and unread count in the Mail app on their mac running lion? I can't seem to get rid of a phantom unread message. My iCloud account is fairly new so I don't have that many messages to go through so I know there is not an unread message any where.
ok, so I have a server that is hosting my email addresses, i have setup imap to use on all 3 of my devices.¬†
My macbook pro, my ipad 2 and my iphone 4s.¬†On my ipad, I go into the account to look for sent messages, and I have 3 sent message folders under the inbox,. sent. sent messages and sent with a paper airplane.¬†
Now I am trying to get everything to sync together, so that when I write an email on any device, it is saved in the sent mail folder, and I can see it on any device I choose. Currently I am sending email on my ipad and it is not saving in the folders, any of them.¬†
in the sent message folder, i am seeing messages sent from me from last friday, although i have sent messages already from this account.¬†
in my second account though, the heirachy is different when i go into the account under the inbox i have 1 folder sent messages, then i have the sent messages with the paper airplane next to it.¬†
when i go into the sent messages folder i see that a message that i wrote on my macbook pro this morning, is saved in this sent messages folder, as it other things i have sent through my mackbook pro¬†in the sent messages with the paper airplane i have stuff only sent from friday and before.¬†¬†
For some reason an IMAP account was previously added, which I want to delete (Mail keeps trying to send / receive from this IMAP account, which isn't set up, and stops Mail working)
However, when I try and delete it by going to Mail -> Preferences, then selecting the IMAP account and pressing the '-' button - it won't delete it! It just stays there in the left hand column. How to I delete it?
I purchased a new MacBook Pro 17" with OS X Lion (10.7.2) preinstalled back in January of this year (2012).¬† I migrated my user accounts from my old MacBook Pro 15" (2008) running OS X Snow Leopard.¬† Almost right away I started having issues of all sorts, including Admin accounts that wouldn't allow me admin priveledges, hidden user groups, apps that wouldn't run, multiple obscure error messages and a host of other issues.¬† After scouring forums like this one I used Disk Utility and not only discovered innumerable permission errors but also disk errors like these:¬†
Invalid volume file count (It should be 1656658 instead of 1656636) Invalid volume directory count (It should be 345764 instead of 345743) Invalid volume free block count
And now, this morning, after a month or two of all that... and after installing the Java Security Upgrade last night, I can't get into my accounts at all.¬† On first boot-up it hung for 20 minutes before I shut it down.¬† After running Disk Utility from Recovery Drive and repairing the drive I rebooted and got the log-in screen.¬† I clicked on my user icon, typed the correct password, was shown they white/grey screen for a few flickering seconds then was brought back to the log-in screen.¬† I rebooted to the Recovery Disk, ran Disk Utility, saw all the same errors again, repaired the disk, rebooted and got the same problems with logging in again.¬†
I've repeated this cycle five times today, as both a normal boot-up and in "Safe Mode" all with the same results.¬† I've repaired the disk using Disk Utility from Recovery Disk as well as accessing the disk in Target Mode, and always there are the same errors needing to be repaired.¬†
I don't buy that I'm dealing with a hardware issue.¬† My antivirus and security software are all up-to-date.¬† What the heck is going on?¬† Why do I keep having these disk problems?¬† Why can't I access my accounts anymore?¬† Why does it keep hanging during boot-up?¬† Why am I about to throw the machine out my bedroom window?

My wife's macbook pro started shutting down by itself randomly, so i performed Disk Utility Verify Disk and found these errors:¬†Invalid volume file count(It should be 800651 instead of 800653)Invalid volume directory count(It should be 191005 instead of 191003)The volume Macintosh HD needs to be repaired.¬†Error: Filesystem verify or repair failed.¬†As i do not have the Mac OS Leopard disks physically with me, I target-disk started her mac on my mac, and use my mac to run Disk Utility on her hard-disk, and repaired the disk without problems.¬†
However, this is the 3rd or 4th time this has happened. After the 1st time, i figured something is causing it, so i checked this forum, and found that for some, the Blackberry Messenger app causes programs, so i promptly uninstalled it fully (including associated system files) and this problem didnt come back for a while.¬†Or could this be a sign the hard disk is physically failing soon? It is out of warranty now. We have regular Time-machine backups. We are actually kinda waiting out until the new line of macbook pro's come out..

Is it possible to delete message in the server using Mail configured using IMAP?¬†
Currently when I delete the message in Mail, the server still keep a copy of it, which means it is not deleted on the server. I know that POP can do this but I still want the option of being able to access it from other computers. ¬†
My server has only a small size, so I hope that I can just delete it from my Mail instead of having to log in to the server and delete it again.¬†
I have somehow ended up with two Gmail inbox lists after setting my Gmail account up in Mail. Hopefully the picture below can help, but I would like to know how to remove this second folder in the sidebar, just to make a bit of room and clean things up.
I have my Gmail account setup with IMAP in Mail 3.0 (Leopard), with about half a dozen labels that of course appear as folders in Mail's sidebar. Labels that I create myself appear as normal folders and look quite nice and neat, but Gmail has it's own "[Google Mail]" folder (which has a white folder icon rather than the default blue?) which contains my All Mail and Starred folders. Ideally I would like both the All Mail and Starred folders to appear in my mailbox section along with drafts, junk, ect. - but I know that this is probably not possible. But I'd be happy to settle for just removing the [Google Mail] folder and having All Mail and Starred appear as normal folders. Dragging them out of the [GM] folder gives me the following error; "The IMAP command "RENAME" (to All Mail) failed with server error: Folder name "All Mail" is not allowed. (Failure). So obviously it's trying to move the All Mail folder on the Gmail server itself, which Gmail doesn't like. I've also tried changing the IMAP path prefix in account setting to [Google Mail], which put All Mail and Starred as normal folders but then removed all my other folders and screwed with my messages - I was forced to revert to my old setting and re-download all my messages again. All 7500+ of them. Does anybody know of any hacks or plugins or workarounds that could help me out here? I know it's silly and OCD-ish, but it really bugs me having this [Google Mail] folder in my sidebar.
I want my desktop to simply be the icons. Reason being, i am using Kobhens theme, and would like to have the name be in the icon, and not repeated below. Any way of making the name transparent or anything else?
We updated our computer to a new system over the weekend (emac to a new iMac). Since then the number of unread messages shows up on the mail icon only all messages have been read. How do I get rid of the number icon? We had this problem once before when we upgraded our system but I don't remember how we got rid of it.
I've been fooling around with Automator for a few hours trying to look for little ways it can handle my repetitive stuff. I've figured out some pretty neat tricks, but I also have a slew of unwanted folder actions and services in my context menus and for the life of my I can't figure out how to get rid of them. The folder actions are especially problematic since they mess with my files automatically. Googling it isn't turning up anything nor can I seem to find anything in Apple's help documents. Is this some kind of huge joke being played on me here or something? Has no one ever wanted to disable their automator tasks before or something?
I use IMAP email so that all folders are based on a server, rather than on my computer (learnt the hard way when my computer crashed and I lost everything).¬† Today when I went to save an email in a folder on entourage, entourage crashed and when I reloaded the app the folder had gone.¬† I tried again with another email and another folder and the same thing happened.¬† When I log on to my email account using the providers webmail service I can see that the folder is still there, it just won't show up in entourage.

It is possible to use the IMAP INBOX folder for sent emails in Mail.app?†I configured Thunderbird on my Linux Machine like that, it is very useful to have this conversational view! Is it somehow possible to do that on MAC too?

I am migrating my mail and archive folders from Mail to iCloud.¬† I moved 20+ folders and over 8k messages with no problem by dragging and dropping the folder from 'On my mac' section to 'iCloud' section in Mail.¬† The last two folders were the largest with over 1.5k in each folder.¬† Over 1200 of the messages in each went in to iCloud without a hitch. Then I got this error:¬†
The IMAP command ‚ÄúAPPEND‚ÄĚ (to [mail box name]) failed with server error: Message contains NUL characters.¬†
There are 149 messages left in one folder and 203 in another folder.¬† Try as I might, it will not work.¬† I tried Rebuild mailbox option in menu and exported to Mail and mbox format and then re-importing.¬† Still does not work.¬†
Is there any way to get unread messages that have been auto-moved into the Junk folder to be counted in the Dock icon unread count? I keep Mail hidden and like to see just from the Dock when I get mail, and sometimes "junk" mail can be real mail from a new sender, a company, etc. I've tried the neat little menu extra Manila Mail, but it doesn't work there either (I'm guessing it just gets the unread count from the same place that Mail's Dock icon does).
I used the geek tool command for unread mail listed on the bottom of this page [URL] -with-geektool and when I used it it just says "no message, no subject hope thats ok" even though I do have unread emails.
