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?

Using a MacBook Pro with the Version of OS X El Capitan 10.11.5 and Apple Mail Version 9.3 (3124).

Thank you



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.

  • How can I remove all the pieces of Apple's music added to my library?

    I went through the free trial and then two months of Apple's music. I do not simply continue to pay monthly fees. However, for the five months I had Apple music I added a lot of albums to my music I can play them from my iPhone in my car. In any event I am now having to look and try to find the albums or songs, I added one at a time to remove them. It's infuriating. Is there a way to remove all Apple music from my music library at the same time?

    On the tab my music toggle the display of the Album song. Then right-click on the column headers and check that 'iCloud status' is checked. Then click this column to sort your music based on iCloud status. Locate the first track 'Apple Music', click it, scroll to the last piece of music from Apple and shift click to highlight all the music from Apple. You can finally do a right-click the selection and click on Remove to remove all Apple music songs recorded.

  • Just noticed, missing all the FLAGS emojis on iOS 9.2


    I just noticed that I'm missing all the emoji FLAG. I am 9.2 on an iPhone IOS 6 Plus. I use them a lot, so I do not insist on it. I don't know that a restoration forced back them. I'd rather not have to do.

    I was wondering if anyone else has this problem?

    Same problem here. A hard reset is the answer. You will not lose your applications or your photos, data or media. Just make sure that you back up your phone. I did just 2 seconds ago and emojis flag returned to normal...

  • SVCHOST is keep my 30% CPU all the time!

    My CPU is housed at 30% all the time because of SVCHOST constantly running. There are multiple instances (usually 2 or 3) to operate and my CPU usuage never less than 30%. I watched until it SVCHOST is intended and have decided that I should not stop anything that has to do with it.

    Is there any fix out there to keep it from eating my system resources, or is it just a natural part of Windows now?
    (currently under Vista, even though I have this same problem on my laptop, which is running XP)

    Hi wildgamer,

    We have collected some imformation from the Microsoft Help and how article from the link below which will help you to know which services are used by various instances of SVCHOST.exe are running on your computer.  From there, you can decide if it would be a good idea to stop these services or not.

    Of the atricle:
    Svchost.exe is a process on the computer that hosts, or contains, other individual services that Windows uses to perform various functions. For example, Windows Defender uses a service that is hosted by a svchost.exe process.

    To view the services that are running under svchost.exe


    Open the Task Manager by right-clicking the taskbar and then click Task Manager.


    Click the processes tab.


    Click on Show processes from all users.

    If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.


    Right-click a svchost.exe instance and then click on reach or services. Services associated with the process are highlighted on the Services tab.

    What is SVCHOST.exe?

    This is probably a good idea to leave things as they are, if you are not noticed problems of performance for this reason, but it will tell you what services are used by svchost.exe.  Please let us know if you have any other questions.  Thank you. Shane

  • page footer text change to make all the breakpoints of accident of inconsistency error U1217 text flow

    I'm converting a site office to a sensitive site. I have a master page and a page master B. Each page has several lines of text in the navigation links to internal pages. I started with a breakpoint of 1240; redesigned the page and made the footer nav 2 lines. Done the same breakpoint breakpoint 960 and 1024. In each breakpoint, the navigation footer text block is pinned and set to NONE when resizing. When I go to the next breakpoint of 770 I want to change the text of 3 lines. When I do this by placing a hard return, it makes OTHER breakpoints for the same three lines I want to change them. I have the tool text defined on only ONE FORMAT CURRENT breakpoint, but it still makes the others. Then the program gives me an error code: inconsistency of text stream in the block of text U1217 breakpoint 960 px. and then crashes. Even if I had 960 runs and I was about to stop 770, I get the error code for the 960.

    As a work around, I deleted the entire footer navigation links text box and tried to use only text plane, perhaps thinking that it has something to do with navigation. He continues to change the text in the other breakpoints. I tried this several times and I get the error code every time now. I had to go in a time machine to make progress yesterday because multiple versions of recovery were causing other issues.

    So at this point, all I want to do is change the two lines of type in three lines of type navigation text on 2 of the 5 stitches. Other breakpoints in 2 lines.

    I even deleted the page text block master B could have some elements tied to her Master A page to make sure. Still have the error code.

    All text in footers resize set to NONE.

    Help, please


    Hi Ben,

    While the Muse supports different formatting of text in all breakpoints, it does not support different structure/content of text through them. Returns and characters are part of the content and will be shared through breakpoints.

    Have you tried to hide the ball in the smallest breakpoint by changing its color to the [none] swatch?


  • Integrated WLS starts does not after activating all the flags "Debug".


    I have JDeveloper with Integrated Weblogic Server. I had activated all "Debug" flags in the WLS and now after the bounce required servers, it does not come to the top. Should I did more than all the "Debug" options, but I am just unable to login to turn it off.

    Is it possible to get around this problem?

    Thank you


    Check also if you could comment on the underside of the elements in the config.xml file and restart the server, if you have not kept the backup copy of the configuration file.



    If the server still does not start, check the server log, for errors or critical problems and go back with the details or error stack trace to help you.

    Thank you


  • In FF password manager (30.0), when you open change, what are all the fields and how you fill them?

    When you open Edit, there are two choices: Web form and annotated.
    What is the difference?

    Then, there are fields for the host, submit the prefix, username, password, etc.
    How to fill out these fields?

    When you click for the Manager "assumes that of the current Page", all fields not necessarily fill up, so it's just for the username and password?
    I use constantly editing function, so it's a little strange to not see that further instructions here.

    When I click on tools, the saved password dialog box is on the list, so it's in my toolbar all the time.
    I use it constantly.

    What is the last password security? I know there are competitors of ideas. What is Mozilla?

    Thank you.

    Personally, I do not record the connections site in Firefox. The FireFTP extension records the FTP connections, so I use a master password to protect the people.

    I know I should finally pass a manager based password on a cloud, because if often, I forgot my login and have to reset, but... I have not bypassed by comparing the features and tests.

  • Transfer all the recipients unknown e-mail to a user


    We had a few problem Exchange major and necessary for starting from scratch (yes I know...)

    Anyway, since I don't have any addresses of electronic mail that were previously configured on the dead Exchange Server, I was wondering if I could transfer all the recipients e-mail unknown to my e-mail address with the Spam of Cisco trainer. Currently, if I check the message tracking utility, I see that some providers get the following message: reception abandoned by sender 'Réception' abandoned by the sender, but I know it's because they send to an incorrect e-mail address.

    If I could get all your emails, I would be able to monitor what emails are still missing and would recreate them in Exchange after...

    Thanks for your help!


    The blocker is simply trying to issue based on what e-mail headers to say. Because these emails are waiting for delivery to the Exchange, they are simply kept on the blocker until he can pass to the Exchange. Having said that I do not think there is a way to change these emails when they are delivered to a different recipient. I would say the next best bet is to look through the follow-up of your messages and keep an eye on the "TO:" field and see if you see the addresses that are not in your list.

  • How can I display all the headers of electronic mail in the 1 pane from multiple accounts.

    I had to install Thunderbird on a new hard drive. I have used Mozbackup to bring more emails, etc. My old Thunderbird would display the headers of the messages in my multiple accounts in a single window. I think that there is a selection 'All', then the individual accounts listed on the left side. This does not happen now, and I have to open each account separately.

    Reviews | Records | All the is a good starting point.

    Reviews | Page layout | The folders pane should be checked also.

    Reading your title question, view | Records | Unread will show you all the folders with unread content.

  • How to prevent the storage of Apple Mail emails locally

    I use several IMAP accounts for my mail, containing GB of data. Unfortunately, Apple Mail copy these emails on my local disk. I don't want to.

    Y at - it a way to prevent Apple Mail to store e-mails locally, but rather only access those via IMAP?

    Thank you for any suspicion.

    At the same time, according to the account, you had a selection in Mail preferences to store messages for consultation offline. You no longer have that option in Mail. Now Mail keeps a copy for viewing offline on all accounts IMAP automatically, and you cannot change that.

    You have different options with other e-mail clients, but I'm not sure about this. Your other option is to not use an e-mail application and just access it from webmail via a browser. Then nothing is stored on a computer.

  • How does the pencil of Apple Mail.

    How works Apple pencil in mail. You can write your message on the fly. I don't see to be able to write. There is no brand of tilde on the keyboard as in the notes.

    It's pretty cool, actually. As far as I know, you can use the pencil in response to emails and attachments. Find an email where you received a JPG or PDF file (or send to yourself) and then while you look at e-mail hold the pencil on the attachment. The pop-up window should appear which gives you all the regular options (as Message, Mail, save attachments, etc.) and the choice should be "markup and answer. Then the attachment opens a window of markup where you can draw on it, add a signature, etc. with the pencil.

    Right now to find all the features in applications which are unlocked using the pencil is kind of cool, although I wish there was a comprehensive document to Apple about it somewhere which simply lists / explain so that we can get the most out of our new pencils.
