Answer Apple Mail app error

I have an annoying problem with the Apple Mail Application.

When I want to reply to, or forward an email, instead of opening a window with the old email attached in order to continue the conversation, the application opens a new window of (empty) e-mail. Then, I can not remove this new email without closing the mail, at which point mail sends an error message. The only way to cure the problem and make the answer and the front buttons work properly is to restart the computer. It is a 6 month old MacBook Pro, with the current IOS installed. Problem persisted for a few months now.

Hey there crispiandenby,

I understand that you have a problem with Mail. It seems that this question cannot be linked to your email account or the service provider, so let's try a different approach to solve this problem. I want you to start in Safe Mode, and then test the behavior here:

Try safe mode if your Mac does not end commissioning - Apple Support

https://support.Apple.com/en-us/HT201262

Let me know how it goes. Thank you for using communities Support from Apple. Have a good!

  • Mail.app: S/Mime encrypted attachments do not work under MacOS Sierra

    Hello

    I can't send or receive attachments when messages are encrypted with S/Mime since the upgrade to Sierra. Attachments sent and received on a MacOS-El-Capitan is available on El Capitan. But the same messages with attachments is more available on Sierra, as well as new messages with attachments sent from Sierra can be viewed on El Capitan or Sierra. Looks like the handling of encrypted attachments is completely screwed.

    The indication for messages with encryption and signature is still flaky and is not consistent.

    The indications for encryption and signing is a bug for years. What is interested in someone at Apple Mail.app and S/Mime? It doesn't seem a Herculean task to do things, and it is a core feature.

    Thank you

  • Keep changing to red all the flags in Apple Mail

    When I use indicators to tag messages in my Apple Mail app, they all end up going to red. It happens when I change to another folder and come back or after I exit and restart the application. I like to use different colors to remind me of emergency or to do or wait to do etc etc... It would be really useful to be able to use the different colors. If anyone has had this problem or knows how to fix?

    Hey scottyincali,

    Thank you brining your color of flag of changing the questions here mail in Apple communities. I can offer some troubleshooting steps, but without having some information isolation for this issue, we cannot immediately solve.

    The first thing we need to know is if the problem occurs in Safe Mode and a Test user. Safe mode will tell us if the problem is related to an element start or plugins. A Test user will let us know if the problem is related to your account, or at the system level. For Sade Mode, please open this article: try safe mode if your Mac does not start-up. Once in Safe Mode, test and see if the problem still occurs. If this is the case, please go and make a Test user. You can make the user Test while you are using safe mode. How to test a question in another account on your Mac user. You will need to configure the e-mail account, download the mail and test here in the test user.

    Now use what we found of such isolation measures to solve your problem. If the problem occurs in Safe Mode and Test user, you can try to reinstall the OS and see if that helps. It will not destroy your personal data, but it is always recommended to have a backup using Time Machine in case of unforeseen problems. You can use this article to help make a backup: use Time Machine to back up or restore your Mac. Once you have the backup, use this article to reinstall Mac OS X. How to reinstall OS X on your Mac

    If questions remain after a reinstall of Mac OS X, I recommend that you erase the hard drive, which will remove all your personal data and reinstall Mac OS X without your personal data on the computer. This article will help you: wipe your drive and install OS X. If the problem does not occur without your personal data on the computer, you want to migrate the data to the computer. Do not restore from a backup like that will likely bring the matter immediately in. This article will help you: move your content to a new Mac by using the section "use the Migration Wizard.

    If the problem does not occur in Safe Mode or the Test user, I recommend contacting AppleCare to contact Apple support, because there are several issues to check to fix that, and they have more options available to help you resolve it quickly and easily.

    See you soon.

  • iOS 10 Mail app - threads are impossible to read with style answer-everything Outlook (without quotes)

    Outlook and the Mail app both old showed you a list of e-mails in a thread; If you want to dive to an email, you must click on this email.

    The new view of thread is essentially impossible to use now, since there is no view that shows each email in a list. Instead, if reply - all on your e-mail service does not add to citing it vertically and mark a horizontal line between the contextual emails, you end up seeing the WHOLE thread in each individual e-mail. It's 100% fine if you also have a vision where you can see every email truncated in a list. But this is no longer the case.

    I'm going to have to cut the wires completely from my computer (Outlook) is impossible for me to read in the current state.

    100% behind you! Please Apple, can we have an option to make the threads as they were in the iOS 9? It was actually a useful feature. In iOS 10, it is completely impossible / a lot of your time!

    Even if the quirks have been developed and e-mails would collapse correctly it is always not very useful when you have long filaments (which, when you use mail app for email to work can happen in the course of a single day with 20-30 + emails).

  • Apple Script to apply rules in Mail.app

    • I've created some rules in my Mail.app to change the background color of specific messages
    • And I also created rules in the mail server in order to move the messages to a folder

    For messages in the Inbox folder, everything is fine.

    But if the message has been moved by the server rule in another folder, then rules the Mail.app do not apply (and reasons twisted, this is normal: https://support.apple.com/kb/PH19162?locale=en_US & viewlocale = en_US).

    Then if I apply the rules manually by pressing Command + Option + L < code > < code >, Mail.app rules will apply as they should.

    I want to automate this action. Is it possible with Apple Script? Can you help me with this? The steps would include, I guess that:

    1. Choose the smart folder "today."
    2. Select all messages in this folder;
    3. Perform the action "Rules" for selection.

    < pre >

    using terms from application "Mail".

    Tell application "Mail".

    the value of the message_count in HOW-TO-GET-MESSAGES-FOR-TODAY-SMARTBOX County

    Repeat with i from 1 to the message_count

    the value this_message to article i of MESSAGES TODAY ' HUI-SMARTBOX

    say this_message

    -That's something like the RULES APPLY

    tell the end

    end repeat

    tell the end

    end using terms from

    < / pre >

    If it is not possible for a smart folder, then I want to do, it goes all messages in all mailboxes mailbox (or with messages in the specific mailbox).

    Apparently, this is not possible as long as such action is not be scriptable.

    If you see the lock of Activation screen after update your iOS device, you want to try the following:

    -Restart your iOS device and try to connect again.

    -Visit appleid.apple.com and log in to ensure that your password is correct.  If you change something here, only to change your password.  Try to connect again on the iPhone.

    -Connect on iTunes on a computer and put your Apple ID and password when it prompts you (as it did on your iOS device).

    -ICloud.com check in the settings.  If you see your iOS device listed, remove account (do not erase or hit lost mode). Restart your device and try to reconfigure.

    -These measures should solve most of the problems.  For someone else, you will need to contact Apple (1-800-MY-APPLE or getsupport.apple.com).

    What version of OS X? Look under the Apple in the menu bar.

    System Preferences > Internet accounts

    Uncheck the Mail for each of your account.

    Go to the library * user

    Scrolling in containers

    Drag the com.apple.mail folder to the trash

    Scroll to E-mail

    Rename by adding xxs on behalf of the MailXXX

    Sign out under the Apple in the menu bar.

    Connect, empty the trash.

    System Preferences > Internet accounts

    Add back an account

    Open mail

    This takes into account properly? Check the connection doctor under the window to check you see green for incoming and outgoing.

    Let the account completely synchronize before adding to your other accounts. Add a return at the same time.

    If you had local folders, we can import those in the MailXXX folder, once get you your account up and running.

    * See the user library

    The user library folder is hidden by default. In the unhide: select the Finder in the Dock. Less go in the Menu bar > hold down the Option key and you will see the library.

    Yes, they don't seem to work.  If they did not work before I suggest upgrade you to the latest version (I'm on 10.11.2) as who may have solved the problem.

    I find the annoying animations, too, especially because I much configuration AppleScripts to run actions in Mail and prefer NET and immediate action instead of toys like animations.
