I have two accounts at the moment. One is [URL] and a second one [URL] The unread count badge appears perfectly on the first account, but not on the second account. I've tried the solution of deleting the files "Envelope Index". Does not work.

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 briefly tried to set up Mail to contact the university mail server there, but gave up. So I deleted the account in Mail.
Now, I randomly get messages telling me that Mail is unable to validate the authenticity of NEU's smtp certificate. Every time, I say, 'why are you TRYING to contact NEU's smtp system? I'm not trying to send a message through that mail system! I don't even have an account there anymore!' but of course my computer doesn't know English, and even if it did, it wouldn't know why it does the things it does, so that's a double dose of not getting a response.
Has Mavericks’ Mail program lost the ability to handle group email addresses? Since I switched to Mavericks, Mail does not handle Group Address emails correctly. Even though Mail Preferences are set so that individual email addresses in each group are not supposed to show, Mail does show the individual addresses rather than the Group address(s).
The only solution is to send out Group emails with my own address in the “To” line and all of the “Group” addresses placed in the “Bcc:” window of the email. Apparently the option to not have the addresses show when using group addresses in the "To:" line does not function in Mavericks.

My husband's computers use Tiger and Leopard (10.5.8) to access his email on the Mail program. His mail is from Comcast and uses the Comcast server, not apple or iCloud. His mail suddenly stopped working a couple of days ago.....as it did on one of my machines that still uses Tiger. He had not done any updates that could have broken the software. He does not have iCloud except on his phone and he doesn't even have a .mac address. There is no reason for the comcast server to not be able to be accessed by Mail app. He did finally update everything that needed it and it still does not work. Why would Apple's change over to iCloud break email access from other servers and how can we fix it. He really doesn't want to do his mail on Comcast's web site as it's slow and awkward.
Since I update to yosemitee on 11/30 MAC mail will not connect to my mail server. I have deleted and re added the account, tried every setting that my provider has for incoming and outgoing but the problem seems to be with the apple update.
My .mac mail is no longer appearing in the desktop mail app. Cannot send or receive and folders have disappeared. Have not changed anything that I am aware of. My other account is fine. .mac mail comes in fine on iphone and ipad. When using my laptop I can get to it and send from the icould site. What would have caused this/how can I get it back? It is still listed as an account in mail preferences.
Okay, so I check my GMail account 3 places, through the web-based client, my iPhone (IMAP) and Mail (IMAP). Everything works perfectly except for the fact that when I read an email on my phone or the web-based client, the message stays as unread on the Mail app on my MBP.
The read message syncing works perfectly between the iPhone and web (i.e., if I read an unread message via the web it will be marked as read on the phone the next time the phone talks to the server and vice versa). However, it just doesn't work like this on the Mail app on my computer. If I read a message on the iPhone the message will stay marked as unread on the Mail app until I click on it.
I have switched email for the first time in 15 years, to a new provider. I finally got MacMail configured and got that working with the new servers, etc. Weird thing is that on my MacBook Pro, on the dock where the mail icon is, it says I have 4 unread emails, which is the same thing it says in my Inbox. However, no matter what I've tried, I can't find those unread e-mails, and therefore can't open them. I tried clearing out old emails, rebuilding mail, etc. to no avail. I can and have got other emails and had no trouble opening them. My outgoing mail is fine. I'm using Safari if that makes any difference.
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).
So I upgraded to 10.5.6, and then after reboot mail kept on bugging me for the password of an old account that I had set up a while back that is now disabled. I set the account to disabled and before 10.5.6 mail never bothered me about it, but in 10.5.6, no matter how many times I would hit "Cancel", it wouldn't do anything. So I just went in and deleted the account, then mail said that I have 247 unread messages in my mailbox(I set the total to be all mailboxes combined). However, in all the available mailboxes I have none. I have went through all the preferences files, even tried deleting the preference file and nothing worked.
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.
My Mac Mail client is shows a non-zero count of unread messages in my inbox, but no unread messages are displayed in the inbox window. The count is increasing each time I receive new messages, but none of them ever show up in my inbox.
I upgraded to Lion and now Mail will not show new or unread messages. I can see the mail come into the mailboxes via the activity bar but nothing shows in the inbox panes for any mailbox.I have tried every preference/view/setting I can with no success.The mail dock icon says I have 39 new unread mail...so where are they?
I have noticed that Thunderbird 3 marks any mail that is deleted as having been read whether it has been or not. Why? What logical reason could there possibly be for such a setup? How does one prevent that from happening? Is there any setting that can be added to about: config to prevent that?
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.
I have two Imap accounts, gmail and one other and often the Mail program does not properly count the number of messages that are left unread. Frequently I will read a message in the unified "inbox" and then the same message will still be left "unread" in the gmail inbox. I'm using Snow Leopard on a uMBP-17, however this problem has existed for years on my other MBP.
My Mail Icon shows 3 unread messages. When I open Mail, my iCloud account icon shows only 1 unread message which I cannot find. When I check iCloud.com, there are no unread messages. I have multiple accounts to access and multiple within each account. I have searched all accounts and files; I have checked "Mark all as Unread", then checked "Mark all as Read", but same reaction.
I am trying to use my gmail account through the mail application, however it is marking all my emails, even ones from when I first made my account, as unread is there a way to sync it so it can tell when I have read an email on gmail.com and mark it as unread? Also is there a way to synch the various labels that I have created on gmail?
I just converted a few of my Bluehost-hosted email accounts from POP to IMAP. These accounts and Apple Mail, itself, is on my hard drive (not in iCloud). For some reason, after about five minutes of sitting untouched in my Yosemite Apple Mail inbox, emails sent to these three addresses appear to be "read." The blue dots disappear, even though I haven't clicked on them. Seriously, they haven't been touched. That's not true of the email accounts I have with two other providers (CoreComm and GoDaddy) that I left as POP accounts. They stay marked as unread until I actually click on them. What could be causing this to happen?
For some reason, my mail icon is no longer showing my badge icon displaying the number of unread emails I have. Within mail, next to my mailbox, it no longer shows the number of unread emails either even though there are clearly email messages with the blue dot indicating they're unread.
I'm using mail on various machines to access an Exchange server account. It generally works with no problems, but on my work MacPro (and only on this computer not the iMac at home, various laptops, iPad, iPhone etc) mail tells me there is an unread message. However, I can't find this message and it's not there when I use a webmail interface to access the same account. No problem, I figured I could just right click on the mailbox and 'mark all messages as read', but this doesn't work! I like to keep a clear inbox with no unread messages
