Is there any way that Mail can be set up to check Yahoo Mail's Spam folder when retrieving emails form the Inbox?I have set my 8 year old daughter an email address up in yahoo. She keeps missing one of her friends emails as it keeps being filtered into Spam.
Info: MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4), 13 inch 2.4Ghz Core i5 4 GB RM
When i use Outlook on my windows comp (or bootcmap partition) i can view my spam mail folder. Sometimes mail i want, end up in there, so its quite handy. Is there anyways i can activate this feature in Mac OSX mail? Or do i have to use entourage?
I have a new mailbox folder that has added itself to my Mac Mail. It does not exist on my server, only in Mac Mail and on my iPhone. I've attempted to delete it manually both while in Mac Mail and through the system library (~/Library/Mail/SmartMailboxes.plist) as I was told it could be a corrupted file. I have Mac-keeper but it is showing no viruses. How can I delete this thing?
When I open Mail it syncs all the messages like it should and then I go thrrough and delete all the junk emails and inbox emails that arent important. They go to the Trash folder and when I click "erase them permanently" they disappear, but then the Trash folder starts filling up with more emails and adds up to 400 every 10 seconds until around 2000. No matter how many times I select them all and click delete it just fills up again.
How can one delete emails from the "all mail" folder? It seems that every single e-mail is stored in that folder perhaps forever?? I am fairly new to the Mac World. I like to keep my mail folders clean but find that by now I have well over 7000 emails stored in tat "all mail" folder. I can delete those mails "temporarily" but they come back after powering up again.
When I sent an email from my Gmail account in Mail.app on my MacBook, it shows up in the Sent folder. When I send it from [URL] on a public computer or from my iPhone or iPad, it shows up in the Gmail mailbox in Mail.app (which is its own mailbox and not part of the Inbox section of Mail.app).
This makes it difficult when I'm trying to find a recently sent email because I don't use any one machine more than the other. I divide my emailing time between all my devices and I love how simply it works. Is there a way to get all sent Gmail emails to show up in the Sent folder under the Mailboxes section in the top-left corner of the Mail.app window?
I'd like to encrypt my Mail folder in my Library. Is this possible? I'm not worried about other users on my mac, but if it is stolen, I'd like to know my emails cannot be accessed. I have TrueCrypt which I've used for files that I have created. It is quick and easy. But I'm not sure if this is compatible with an application like Mail which has a default file system. I've also hear that there may be issues later with mail if you try and search for emails once you've encrypted the folder.
I accidentally deleted a mail and was trying to locate it on my Mac.I thought mails are saved locally, but can't fined [Mail] folder in HD>Library nor can't even locate [Library] folder on HD>Users>my name.I'm using iMac (intel) + OS X Lion + iCloud.
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.
Folders I created in mail just went south on me. That is I finally got the ability to get all mail again but seem to have lost the folders I created. I had stored some messages in them too. It just makes one curious as to where they went, Anyone know anything about this?
I checked my mail folder in library and the RSS subfolder is 4.32GB. It seems to me that Mail doesnt delete the previous RSS articles (although I have deleted them from inside the mail) hence the massive size of the folder. I tried deleting the folder, but then all the RSS feeds were gone when I launched Mail again. Is there anyway to reduce the size of this folder and delete the old articles without having to delete all the RSS feeds (and the folder itself?
Is there a way to move the Apple Mail folder someplace else? I have a bunch of archived mail (mbox) on an external drive and I want to access them but I don't know how unless I drag them to my Library folder.
On my laptop, in Mail, I have two folders under each reminders (notes and todos) called "on my mac" and "mobileme". On my imac, I only have the one folder (just named notes and todos). When I add a note from the imac, I get it on the laptop. When I add something from the laptop, it goes into the mobileme folder and the imac can't see it. I have notes set to sync automatically with mobileme on both machines. I want to eliminate the extra folders on the laptop (like the imac) and sync both folders automatically.
I'm fairly new to Apple Mail and what not. So I'm going to refer to what I used to do on my PC to handle some important email's that I received. This was while I was using the built in Windows Mail program. What I want to do and use to do is. While in the mail program I created an "Important" folder for the mail program and I would move important emails that I did not want lingering in my inbox and that I didn't want to delete or anything. Is there some way to create folders in Apple Mail to save some important emails like this? I have 3 email accounts in Apple Mail [Gmail, MobileMe, & Comcast POP].
