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?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3)

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mail Disappears From Inbox In Apple Mail OSX 10.7.3

Apr 23, 2012

Moved to my new Mac Book Pro from Linux 3 days ago. My first Apple computer.Wonderful machine and OS. Set up my G Mail account on Apple Mail with the wizard and was receiving e mails no problem.Today all of the mail from both my inbox and sent mail disappeared. I did notice that both my incoming mails and sent mails end up accessible in the folder G Mail/All Mail-- the messages from both inbox and sent mail that disappeared from their respective boxes are in there. In reviewing my various mail settings I notice that Apple Mail set the account up as IMAP rather than POP. I also noticed that there was no way to change this i.e. edit the account. I am not that well versed on differences between POP and IMAP. I also tried rebuilding the inbox after I noticed that the contents disappeared and it made no difference. It is essential that I keep copies of everything on my local machine as well as the server.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: How To Restore Mail Messages To Inbox

Feb 14, 2012

While working with my ISP on a mail problem I deleted all of the messages from Inbox and Sent. 

I maintain regular backups so I have the messages there. They are located at User/Library/Mail/Mailboxes/POP-(me)@pop-server. . . .  

How do I restore them to Mail's Inbox and Sent respectively?

OS X :: Restore Mail Inbox With Time Machine / Unable To See Contents Of Email

Dec 16, 2009

I have a problem with my inbox, seems its corrupted in some way. I can see the headers, but no contents, cant delete or move message. All other folders seem OK. Its from a POP3 mailbox where the originals are deleted off the server when downloaded so I'd prefer to try and recover it but I can live with losing the contents if necessary. Any ideas? Is there a tool or way to repair? I have Time Machine but I doubt the TM backup will have caught these files between them being downloaded (they came in one batch) and being corrupted as it was only a few minutes. Not sure how I could tell if TM did catch them either.

Update; Impressive, TM did recover them, now I just need to work out how to empty the inbox of the corrupt messages. Worst case I can create a new email account but I'd rather not as configuring it was troublesome.

Second Update; Mailbox > rebuild, then move the messages from the TM mail recovered folder back to inbox.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mail Application Doesn't Keep Data Of Yahoo Mail Account

Apr 13, 2012

I have an early 2011 MacBook Pro running OS Lion (10.7.3) and in the last two weeks I face the following problem with the Mail application and my Yahoo mail account: although the account appears in the side bar of the application and it will search for new messages when I launch the Mail app, it doesn't load any messages and I also realised that all Mailboxes of the named account are blank! The messages appear normally when I reach my account through the Yahoo page! I tried to remove and re-import the account in the Mail app, but it just worked for two days and now the Mailboxes are blank again! I have no problems with the other two mail accounts I reach through the same application (both POP accounts).

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.

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.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Mac Mail Loses All Mail In Inbox Except For One Message

Apr 11, 2012

One IMAP account is intermittently losing all mail in inbox except for one message.  After doing opening program the receive wheel spins for a long time, but at this point there are only 170 emails in the inbox because we moved all the rest to the on my mac inbox to try to solve this porblem.  There are two accounts, both from the same provider, but one of them takes a long time to receive new mail.   The wheel spins for a long time - each time it gets mail. 

Several times after finishing receive cycle, all the mail that was in the inbox disappears, except for one.  I was able to get the emails to retrn by going into settings>accounts> and changing a random setting and then changing it back the way it was.  All settings appear to be correct and match the other other account that is working correctly.

Applications :: Emails Disappearing From Inbox / Inbox Only Hold Upto 2 Weeks Of Mail

May 28, 2009

I use Apple's Mail program and also my school's webmail (outlook.com) in conjuction to check my school email. However, for some strange reason, my inbox on outlook.com will only hold up to 2 weeks of mail. My inbox in Mail will still be intact, yet for the life of me, I can't figure out why my webmail inbox is disappearing. I've checked every possible setting on outlook.com to no avail. I've also checked Mail's settings, but haven't seen anything as far as deleting older mail. BTW, we're allowed 25 gigs on outlook.com so they shouldn't be deleting them automatically.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Mail Delivers To Folder Not Inbox?

Jun 11, 2012

I setup my macbook air 11" with a folder within the inbox in Apple mail.  I set up a rule so that any email with a certain address [URL] went into that folder.  However all my mail went into that folder for that particular email address. 

Here this adds to my problem: 

Having had issues I exchanged my 11" air for a 13" and apple moved everything across.  The mail coming in from [URL] etc is still going into the folder but so is everything else for that mailbox - however when I go to preference > Rules there is only one listed called Apple (a default I think) 

So how can I get my mail going back to the main inbox an then segregating the mail for the info@ into the networking folder? I am using Lion 10.7.4 13" air 1.8ghz intel core i7

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Some Email Present In Overall Inbox But Not In Its Account Inbox?

Apr 22, 2012

I've got really odd behavior in my Mail application running on a MacBook Pro 2.7GHz Intel Core i7 4GB RAM OS X 10.7.3. I have several email accounts. In one of them, "X," some emails don't show up in the account Inbox even though they are present in the overall Inbox marked as "Inbox - X"! Also, when I set up a Smart Mailbox with as criterion that the sender is "Y," the sender of one of these "missing" emails, those emails don't show in the Smart Mailbox. What's going on here? It screws up my email management as I can't be sure my Smart Mailboxes and folders contain all that they're supposed to.

Applications :: Mail Replying From Wrong Email Account / Sends Mail From Other Account

Feb 12, 2009

MBP, OS X 10.4.11, Mail v2.1.3.

I have more than one email account set up on Mail and the strangest thing happens and I can't find out how to stop it.

Here is the problem:

- I have 2 accounts, 'Account A' is for my partner & 'Account B' is for me.
- Someone sends an email to 'Account A' (my partner) and CCs 'Account B' (me) into the same eMail.
- If I click reply from 'Account B' it sends the eMail from 'Account A' which is my partner, when it should be from me.

I have worked out that this is because 'Account A' was originally sent the eMail in The 'To' field as opposed to the 'CC' field in composing the reply eMail. I know that I can manually change the 'From' field every time when replying to an eMail but it becomes an nuisance. I forget to do it when quickly replying as I consider Mail to reply from the account that I'm reading the email from.

I have gone to the compose section in the preferences and there is an option for changing this when composing a new email but nothing when replying.

When I check this in the Google mail web client, mail appears as normal.

Applications :: Import Mail Account Settings From Thunderbird And / Or Outlook Express Into Mail?

Jan 31, 2010

Is there away to import mail account settings from Thunderbird and/or Outlook Express into Mail? [that is mail.app, to help any one searching later on as Mail is too common a word to search for]. I've imported all my messages correctly but don't know how or if it's possible to import my account settings. Also: I'm in the process of migrating all my e-mails / mail accounts / settings and mail rules from Outlook Express to Mail [Mail.app]. I have successfully got all my e-mails across. I have also managed to convert all the e-mail addresses in the 50+ mail rules, as stored in the Windows registry, from hex into text.

Some of my rules have tens of e-mail addresses which if I had to add in each address separately would be a nightmare. Is there away of block adding in e-mail addresses to Mail? Also is it possible to manually edit the mail rules preference file(s) and insert the e-mail addresses into that? I'm aware I have to manually recreate the rules themselves but that's not so difficult. It's the adding back in of all the e-mail addresses that might be, given the large number that exist.

Software :: Receive A Return E-mail Receipt Using Apple Mail And A .Mac/.Me Account

Does anyone know of an easy method to receive a return e-mail receipt using Apple Mail and a .Mac/.Me account. I know that in Windows you can use Outlook to receive/request a return receipt when the receiver opens the e-mail. I believe that even using Microsoft Office Entourage '08 would work as well but I really want to stay all Apple applications if at all possible
