OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mail 'check For New Messages' Despite It Being Set To 'manual'?

May 1, 2012

I want to only receive new email either once per hour or better still manually (once or twice during the day at a time chosen by me). That way I won't be bombarded with emails all day and can get on with my work. 

So, I set the 'check for new messages' to 'manually'. Nevertheless I get email coming in frequently. Possibly every time I send an email, it also checks for new incoming mail (I'm not sure but that's my hunch). 

How can I stop Mail from pulling in my new incoming email? Any answers to this? If I can't figure this out or it's not possible in Apple Mail, it might be time to switch (but I don't want to!)

Applications :: Save PDF Attachments From Mail Messages Automatically?

Oct 20, 2009

I find this maddening and have searched high and low for help, so hopefully you've got an answer.

In my I have two accounts, one for personal email and one for work email. I also have a local mailbox titled "Submitted Forms." I receive forms from coworkers as PDFs in my work email account. I have a Mail rule established so that any email coming into my work email account meeting certain criteria (having an attached form, specified by name) is moved to the local mailbox "Submitted Forms." That all works fine. What I am trying to achieve, ideally using an applescript run by the rule, is to have any message that gets moved into that mailbox save its attachment to the desktop (or other destination folder). I have tried over a dozen similar-but-different example applescripts I've found online that claim to do this, but none seem to work. I've also tried tweeking each one with my limited knowledge of applescript to no avail. It really cannot be that hard for the computer to say "hey, there's a new message in that folder, I'll save its PDF to my desktop." Can it?

This is the basics of my goal. Ideally, the applescript/rule/computer would add the Received Date to the attachment name and would know whether it had already saved a given email's attachment(s), so as to reduce overwriting, possibly through read-status or flagging.

Intel Mac :: Configuring Mail App To Automatically Remove Messages

May 31, 2012

I have an IMac desktop, a MacBook & a 4th generation IPod Touch. As it now stands whenever I receive email it goes to all 3 devices necessitating the need to physically read and/or delete the messages from all 3 devices. Is there some way to configure Mac Mail to eliminate these steps or do I just have to keep manually removing mail messages as I'm now doing?

OS X Mavericks :: How To Avoid Messages Going Automatically To Archive Folder In Apple Mail

Sep 1, 2014

I've been using Apple Mail (version 7.3 (1878.6)) on my MacBook Pro 13" (9,2) (MacOS 10.9.4) for years to integrate my GMail, university, and other e-mail accounts in the imap mode. Since some weeks, Mail is behaving odd: some messages are sent automatically to the archive folder. That's quite annoying, as I have to move them manually back to the inbox folder, and sometimes I mess some messages. I did not change any config in Apple Mail or my e-mails servers.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Mail Shows Number Of Unread Messages But No Messages?

Jun 30, 2012

The Apple Mail on my son's iMac 5, running OS X 10.6.8, shows the number of unread messages (9), but if I click on InBox, the messages themselves don't show up in the main window. This suddenly happened, and none of his old, read messages show up either. But he can access them just fine from his iPod, or through his Network Solutions web mail interface. Also, in Mail we can search part of his email address, and all the messages show up, read and unread! He has no rules set up. The connection doctor shows the connection is fine.

Applications :: After Password Change Unable To Check Gmail Messages

Jul 1, 2010

Today, I changed the password of my Gmail account on a PC computer in a public library. Afterwards, I was/am unable to log into my Gmail account to check the messages via SL 10.6.4's Mail client. I have an April 2010 13" MBP. Similarly, I was/am unable to log into my Gmail account via the Mail client on my 16 GB, 3G iPad, or the 32 GB, 3rd Gen iPod Touch. I keep getting the error message that either the user name or the password is wrong! I checked and re-checked, but I did NOT see anything wrong? The funny thing is that I could log into my Gmail account via Safari on ALL three devices, but NOT via the Mail client on the three device!

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Automatically Expand Conversations In Viewing Pane To See All Messages In Thread

Jun 22, 2012

I'm getting super annoyed since apple has started condensing the conversation in  mail in the view window. 

They have added the "See More from xxxxxxx" in the middle on the converations view pane. 

How can you have those always automatically expand?  It's a super pain, because every single conversation I have to look at what I last wrote.

Applications :: Setting Apps To "Check For Updates Automatically"?

Sep 19, 2010

I have almost all my apps set to check for updates automatically. Most of them will most likely not update for a while. Does having all my apps set to update automatically slow down the computer. Seems like them checking every time will put a dent in my cpu usage.

Mail updated its program and now when opening it for the first time, states there are 70,000 messages to download. Is there a way to reduce this ridiculous amount?  No way are there that many messages in my lifetime.  The beachball just spins and spins.

Applications :: - Showing Sent Messages As Unread On Mail Badge?

Mar 3, 2009

I use an IMAP email account (provided by AOL) and every time I send an email it then comes in to my AOL sent items folder and displays an unread count on It's infuriating.

I think imap stores the sent mail on it's server and I think I'm subscribed to all these folders so when it receives my sent mail, it sends a copy back to me.

I have tried creating a rule that mark all messages from me as read, but to no avail, it still does it anyway.

Applications :: Mac Mail - My Sent Mail Doesn't Show Up In Threaded Messages?

May 8, 2010

In an effort to make Mail more gmail-like, I selected the "View>Organize by thread" option. However, this only seems to group messages in my inbox and doesn't include my sent messages within the same conversation.

Is this how threaded messages are supposed to work? Just one side of a conversation? Or is there a setting to get my sent messages to show up in the threaded conversation?

I am using Mac Mail to check my gmail acct via IMAP. I am using the settings specified by google. I have selected the appropriate folders and mapped them using the "Use this folder for..." menu item. My sent messages are both in the Sent folder (for a while, then they disappear) and below in my Gmail>Sent Mail folder (always current). I have the option selected to store them on the server.

MacBook Air :: Mail Not Saving Copies Of Sent Messages To Sent Box

Dec 6, 2014

Messages sent from my Macbook Air are not being saved to my Sent box when working from home.  I have researched this issue online and can't find a solution.  Discussion seems to indicate the Macbook Air Mail problem is common and well known, but Apple has not acknowledged or provided a fix. 

This problem is not insignificant as I cannot use my Macbook Air for work-related activity at home.  While I have all my email accounts synced with iCloud, the Macbook Air messages sent from home also do not appear on any of my other devices.  I don't experience this problem at home if I use my iPad, and sent messages appear in my iPad Mail Sent box and on my other devices.  Due to functionality issues, this means that I have to use my Samsung laptop if I work from home.  Not a great recommendation for the utility and convenience of the much more expensive Macbook Air .

MacBook Pro :: Mac MAIL Not Displaying All Messages Downloaded From Server

Dec 7, 2014

Mac MAIL not displaying all messages downloaded from server. 

My MAIL isn't showing all the messages that are downloaded from the mail server (Virgin media). I just found out, because friends have asked about their e-mails and my answers. I've never seen those e-mails, but they are no longer on the server (i.e. Virgin media). No RULES etc. have been applied in MAIL and this is a very serious and frustrating issue.

MacBook :: Gmail Stopped Sending Messages On Apple Mail

Jun 2, 2014

I went to send a message from my apple mail (gmail account) and it won't send.  Says is offline.  I didn't change any settings but when I went in to check them, they were all gone.  I added back under description and my complete email address under server name.  I then went to advanced settings and made sure the Use default ports (25, 465, 587) was checked and also Use Secure Sockets Layer was checked.  I chose Password for authentication and added my complete email address for user name with my password.  It still says I'm offline and won't sent a message.
