OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mac Mail - Can't Restore 'On My Mac' Folders

Jun 5, 2012

I could not find any direct reference to my question - believe me I searched everywhere before coming here. 

Some details:

- OS X 10.7.4
- Mail 5.2 (1278) 

Prior to my intervention, Mail was not really running at all; It was making entire system run slow and I could not send mail at all. I decided to backup my Mail folder and Export all the 'On My Mac' folders before making any changes. 

After all was backed up, I rm -rf ~/Library/Mail ; I then reopened my Mail app. I re-added the old account. All my online stuff is fine obviously as it is delivered through IMAP. The 'On My Mac' stuff however is seemingly a different story. I attempted to import the exported 'On My Mac' folders, however after they were reimported, none of the subfolders were there, and 1 mailbox in particular did not report an import failure, but does not even import into the 'On My Mac' section. 

I also attempted moving the old Mailbox .mbox package/folders to the same place they had been, but this does not seem to work either. I am just presented with an empty folder structure upon reopening Mac Mail.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Unable To Create Folders Under POP Mail Account In Mac Mail?

Mar 17, 2012

I'm migrating the admin side of my life to my iMac. I am using Mac mail for my mai, this includes a Gmail IMAP account and a POP3 account for my meandering ISP. The IMAP one loads up fine with the IMAP folders there under a sub set of folders for the account.But the POP3 account won't let me create folders within it nor does it have a subset like the Geekwolf one you see below.What do I need to do to get it to have folders, I need to be able to sort incoming mail, but at the moment, I can't.My ISP does have an IMAP setting, but I don't want to have the mail sat about on a server.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Restore Mail Inbox For One Mail Account

May 12, 2012

I am away from home, and the inbox of one of my mail accounts on my MBP (10.7.3) has lost all its information.  When I get home I want to restore (most of) the lost data from my Time Machine backup. 

However, I do not want to restore all the accounts and all the mailboxes, just the one that was lost. 

How to I find the Inbox for that account, in order to use the older file in Time Machine to restore it with?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Multiple 'sent' Folders On Mail Account?

May 23, 2012

why I have multiple 'sent' folders in one of my mail accounts?

As you can see from the screen grab, relating to the 'Skittles' account, there is one 'sent' under Inbox/Skittles, one under 'Sent' and another further down under SKITTLES.

What seems to happen is that any emails sent from my Mac go into one folder, ones from iOS devices go somewhere else, etc.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mail : Missing Sub-folders In File Cabinet?

May 10, 2012

After a problem with my "old" MacBook Pro, I have just bought a new one with OSX 10.7.3 Lion and Mail 5.2.  I was able to move almost everything over with the Migration Assistant and recovered almost all the remaining from my cloud backup at Carbonite.  So far so good. 

However, in mail, some (not all) sub-folders in the file cabinet do not appear.  I redid the restore from Carbonite but they still do not appear.Tried doing a rebuild of the File Cabinet and the folders within it but aparently that does nothing. 

My assumption is that the are there in the folders of mboxes but, since the Library is now hidden from view, I can not look to verify if the mailboxes are there. What do I do to get them visible?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Backup And Restore Mail Not 100%?

Mar 20, 2012

Following Apples instructions on backing up the mail data and restoring as well as what I have so far found on the various forums has allowed me to move 99% of my mail to my new computer pretty much spot on except for one thing - the outgoing SMTP server list.  Is there somewhere else I need to be looking for that information? 

I have quite a few email accounts and with that comes quite a few outbound SMTP servers, much to my dismay I discovered that all of that information did not restore when I put the mail data all back into place.  Now I assumed that perhaps it was in my keychain, but that would just be the passwords for the servers and not the list itself and the attachment of the various mail accounts to their respective SMTP servers, right? 

So, my question is two-fold: one, is there a way to get that list back and have it attached to my 20+ email accounts and if I can do that then two, where in the keychain do I look in order to also get all those passwords back as well?  It's not the end of the world, but just a big pain the butt. 

On a side note, but related, I've also noticed that about 1/3rd of the email accounts I restored just won't log in and get mail, they just "spin" and bomb out, generally saying the password is bad even though I've put it in correctly numerous times (my mobile me account is one that comes to mind).  Is this a known side effect of restoring?  My only solution so far has been to delete those accounts and re-create them.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mail Is Missing Gmail Label Folders And Labeled Messages

Mar 31, 2012

I've got a bunch of client folders and subfolders (labels on gmail). I'm trying to switch to mac in the office and set up an imap account. In the last hour searching the archives here, the subfolders in the account have appeared, disappeared, back and forth. Right now they're gone. They have never had any of the messages in them on the mac. There is no little triangle to turn.

Here's what I have done so far:

- set the folders to show in IMAP

- verified the folders/labels and their contents are on the server, my pc, my iphone

- completely deleted and recreated the account in Mail and System Preferences 3 times

- they also don't show in the [Gmail] folder down below

- let it completely sync overnight last night (problem existed yesterday too)

OS X V10.7 Lion :: 'Mail' - No 'Trash' Can And Sub-folders From An Imported 'hotmail' Account Not Visible?

Jul 4, 2012

I have started using ‘mail’ for the first time, and have successfully imported 4 mailboxes into the program. I have two issues which I would be grateful for help with. I have browsed the forums used the ‘express lane’ through Apple, but to no avail: There is no ‘trash’ can. I have deleted several messages, but I don’t know where they have gone. When I check preferences, the tickbox to send items to the ‘trash’ can is ticked for each mailbox. 

My work mailbox is successfully incorporated into ‘mail’, inclusive of mailbox subfolders, which are showing in the mailbox pane also. Lovely so far. My  problem is that this has not happened for my imported ‘hotmail’ mailbox; my subfolders are not listed for this account.

ICloud :: Mail Folders (Sent Mail And Drafts) Not Syncing Between It And Mail.app

Jun 13, 2012

I am running Lion (latest ver) on my iMac (2011, i7), and have icloud set up to sync mail (and other stuff) with my iPhone 4. My iCloud account Sent Mail and Drafts are being syncronized between the cloud the iPhone, but not the iMac. So for example, I see 2 items in my Drafts folder when I log into icloud.com, and I see them in the drafts folder on iPhone mail, but they do not appear in the drafts folder for my iCloud account on Mail.app on the iMac. Also, I don't see emails I sent from icloud.com on my Mac's mail. I have iCloud enabled on the mac, and mail syncing is specifically turned on.

OS X :: How To Restore Files In Trash To Respective Folders

I accidentally deleted a whole lot of stuff including apps, docs and critical workflow files etc of different apps.

BIG problem is, I am not sure which deleted stuff goes to which folders.

So how do I restore the stuff to their respective folders? In Windows, users have the option to right click and press "Restore" to return the files to their different folders.

OS X :: Cannot Restore My Documents Folders From Time Machine Backup

Sep 2, 2009

Did a fresh install of SL on my iMac. So far, so good.

Go to my Documents folder, enter time machine, choose the files in my Documents folder and click restore. Exits out back to my desktop, enter my password and it starts to copy over the files. But then suddenly stops. And only copies over a small number of files and empty folders. When trying to restore just the files in some of the folders I get an error that says I don't have permission to access these files. Don't have permission? Says who and why?

So I go in via finder to the backup, select all the files in my Documents, and manually drag them over to my Documents folder. Same thing happens.

The files are a couple hundred mb. But can't figure out why they don't all copy over. Weird thing is I didn't have this problem with files from other locations like restoring my iPhoto library.

OS X :: Time Machine Restore With Excluded Folders / Will I Lose Them

Jul 28, 2010

I am having issues buring CDs in Finder. Went to the Apple Store this past weekend as I have AppleCare. The genius there couldn't figure out the problem and only recommended I do a "Archive and install" of 10.6. Reluctantly, I did that today. Now I have lost most of my customizations to Finder, getting weird errors with some of my apps that load on login, and the problem still persists.

Instead of wasting hours on end getting the system up-to-date and trying to figure out all the errors Im getting, I decided to restore using Time Machine. I was about to restore a backup from yesterday (most up-to-date), but hesitated as I have never done a "Full" restore from TM before. So I decided to do a bit of research. From what I have been reading, the destination volume will be wiped clean and replaced by the backup. Normally this would be ok, but I remembered I excluded some folders from my Time Machine backup to cut down on space (Applications folder and VMs for example). I'm worried that if I restore using the "Restore from Backup" utility, I will lose the content in those folders.

Can anyone confirm what exactly will happen if I do a "Full Restore"? Will I lose those "excluded" folders? If so, is there any way I can restore only the System Folder for my backup (that's really the only thing I need to restore). I am slightly panicked and ready to go back to the Apple Store and rip that Genius a new one.

(Yes I know he couldn't have know about my specific backup setup, but he said that a "Archive and Install" would fix the problem. He also said that I wouldn't run into any issues afterwards, which was also false. Also, I know I am over-reacting but I have a valid reason to be peeved ATM)

Applications :: Gmail On Mail.app. All Mail In Folders Has Been Duplicated To Inbox?

May 22, 2009

I use gmail as my main email account. I have it synched to my iphone (IMAP) and mail.app (IMAP). This was all running smoothly until about a week ago when I turned on my mac and opened mail. It started downloading hundreds of emails.

I looked over them and it seems that all the mails that I have moved to sub folders have been copied to my inbox again and marked as unread.

I have not knowingly changed any settings on my iphone, mac or web based gmail.
