Loss of emails

My Mac, 4 years, seems to have removed all my incoming emails that are more than a month.  I have no idea why this happened.

Can someone tell me why this happened and if I can do anything to get back them?  Thank you

Hello...

A way to avoid sending questions to keep your Mac up-to-date software.

If your Mac is ongoing v10.10.3 as indicated in your profile, open the App Store, and then select the updates menu. The last OS X for Yosemite is v10.10.5. If you have problems to download the update from the App Store, you can use OS X Yosemite 10.10.5 Combo update

If you still have problems with e-mail, follow the instructions for restoring your mailboxes > Mail (Yosemite): rebuild the mailbox

  • Loss of emails in Outlook Expresss "Compacting" process.

    Outlook Express has suggested compacting folders to save disk space. Process has started, but got problem & closed, causing the loss of all the 'Inbox' & emails "sent items". How can I get these?

    Two reasons the most common for what you describe is disruption of the compacting process, (never touch anything until it's finished), or bloated folders. More about that below.
     

    Why OE insists on compacting folders when I close it? :
    http://www.insideoe.com/FAQs/why.htm#compact
     
     
     
     
    Recovery methods:
     

    If you are running XP/SP3, then you should have a backup of your dbx files in the Recycle Bin (or possibly the message store), copied as bak files.
     

    To restore a folder bak on the message store folder, first find the location of the message store.
     

    Tools | Options | Maintenance | Store folder will reveal the location of your Outlook Express files. Note the location and navigate on it in Explorer Windows or, copy and paste in start | Run.
     
     
    In Windows XP, the .dbx files are by default marked as hidden. To view these files in the Solution Explorer, you must enable Show hidden files and folders under start | Control Panel | Folder options | View.
     

    Note: If you have new messages in the folder you are go restore, move them to a folder first created user, or they will be lost. They can be moved once the old posts have been restored.
     

    Close OE and in Windows Explorer, click on the dbx to the file missing or empty file, then drag it to the desktop. It can be deleted later once you have successfully restored the bak file. Minimize the message store.
     
     
    Open OE and, if the folder is missing, create a folder with the * exact * same name as the bak file you want to restore but without the .bak. For example: If the file is Saved.bak, the new folder should be named saved. Open the new folder, and then close OE. If the folder is there, but just empty, continue to the next step.
     
     
    First of all, check if there is a bak file already in the message. If there is, and you have removed the dbx file, go ahead and rename it in dbx.
     

    If it is not already in the message, open the trash and do a right-click on the file bak for the folder in question and click on restore. Open the message store up and replace the .bak by .dbx file extension. Close the message store and open OE. Messages must be in the folder.
     
     
    If messages are restored successfully, you can go ahead and delete the old dbx file that you moved to the desktop.
     
     
    If you have not then bak copies of your dbx files in the Recycle Bin:

    http://www.oehelp.com/DBXpress/default.aspx
     
     
     
     
     
     

    A general warning to help avoid this in the future:
     

    Do not archive mail in default OE folders. They finally are damaged. Create your own folders defined by the user for mail storage and move your mail to them. Empty the deleted items folder regularly. Keep user created folders under 300 MB, and also empty as is possible to default folders.
     

    Disable analysis in your e-mail anti-virus program. It is a redundant layer of protection that devours the CPUs, slows down sending and receiving and causes a multitude of problems such as time-outs, account setting changes and has even been responsible for the loss of messages. Your up-to-date A / V program will continue to protect you sufficiently.

  • Outlook Express, loss of emails from entry

    Outlook Express, 3 new emails have been consulted, then all previous emails and read not reading disappeared by simply clicking on the following email address. The last 3 emails remained, and everything was lost.

    On 'search' for ".dbx", found "Inbox (1). dbx", containing 3 current input emails and the"box of Inbox.dbx"which seems to contain all of the lost emails.

    How one to retrieve all emails "input"? Some files not lost anything else and no file added to 'delete '. Software "Outlook Repair Kit" would solve the problem?  If so who? The system uses - Windows XP Professional SP3 and Microsoft Outlook Express 6.

    You can do a right click on the Inbox in the folder list and access the properties to see what real file is using OE.  It seems as if the original Inbox.dbx box has been corrupted, so OE made a new one called Inbox (1) .dbx he uses now.   Before you do anything in the inbox.dbx file, make a copy in the case where the messages are still inside.  Then you can try to import as Bruce suggested (see also www.oehelp.com/backup.aspx#imp1).  But if you try and import it and its corrupt and there messages, OE can erase all content, so make sure you do a first backup (you should back up the store of the entire message at this stage).

    Also, check your Inbox and the message store to a file inbox.bak, which is a backup, if it exists and may contain lost messages.  See www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#2

    I had such application suport - one of our customers has problem with viruses in Thunderbird Inbox folder - our antivirus scanner has found two Trojan horses in a file located in the Inbox folder and moved all of the Inbox folder to quarantine. We know that these files can be found here:

    I'm not very familiar with Thunderbird, so my question is - is is possible to get this file 12145.part and remove it as well, even with the message that cointains inside?

    Thank you in advance and Best Regards,.

    Piotr,

    If it's convenient, the absolutely safest approach is to delete the profile folder 4dhjzo2v.default while integer that TB is arrested.

    If the person is to use IMAP or POP with an option to leave emails on the server, there should not be a loss of emails (except in local folders).

    If there are important e-mails in local folders, and they are not infected, they could be exported to support storage and then imported into the new profile. There is an add-on to tuberculosis, which allows the import and export of emails in different formats.

    You will find instructions on how to download and install it in http://barryduggan.info/exportMail.php

  • There is still a huge problem of compaction of the mailboxes

    Once more I heard a person in great distress because Thunderbird removed some critical mail messages. In this case they went to get the mail and gave him a TB ALERT, and told him he had no place in her dressing room IN (there was a huge 20 messages). Thinking that the file was too big (which is a logical deduction of a message "no more room") it compacted his IN box and then there were 4 messages. Other messages have disappeared.

    And worse, all the information on the forums are explanations and the defence of TB - as if it was his fault to be compacted, not backup or (my favorite) - an article that says TB is just do what it says to do.

    When we combine this with all the traffic of other message here and on other sites about the loss of emails the only thing that is clear is that the modules dealing with indexing and compacting of the mailboxes are tragically flawed. Unfortunately and that's the problem with free software #1 - product builders are doing it for ego, no money, so once they decided that their program is fair and users are mistaken - there it sits, cast in concrete.

    Thunderbird has been and is still a leader in form and features but lose data user - for ANY reason-EVER - is and will always be the fault of the developer and no - EVER - users shouldn't have to change its behavior in order to avoid a problem that the developer does not know how to fix.

    Of course, there are a solutions - each a work-around to avoid a bug.

    As an explantion, I can offer this info.
    Emails are not stored in individual files.
    They are stored in files mbox, an e-mail listed after another in the order they have been downloaded. If all emails in an Inbox folder, as shown in the folders pane are all in one Inbox file.
    When you choose to delete a message, this message is "marked as deleted" and your Visual point of view, it is removed from the Inbox folder in the folders pane and reappears in the folder "Deleted".
    In reality, it is always in the Inbox just "marked as deleted.
    When you compact the file, these emails "marked as deleted" are deleted, thus creating more space and store the file.
    If you do not compact the folder on a frequent basis, the file gets more and wider and at some point may be damaged due to lack of maintenance. Then Thunderbird is perhaps not in a position to say where there is a clear end of the deleted section, therefore resulting in losing a good email.

    So, as all documents etc. on your computer, you must do a few basic things to reduce the risk of data loss.

    Use the information you learned in the link "keep it works."
    Use the Inbox folder as a folder, Inbox, and not as a general storage.
    Compact records on a regular basis.
    Create backups on a regular basis.
    "Options of the Archive"allows to reduce the size of the files, including the "Sent" folder.
    https://support.Mozilla.org/en-us/KB/archived-messages?ESAB=a & s = Archive + options & r = 0 & s = ACE
    Archived files are always in the profile Thunderbird and always as accessible and also require backup.

    Losing emails is a pain and can be troublesome say the least.
    But if you follow the guidelines, then, you reduce the risk of experiencing a problem.
    I've manually compress my inbox every day that I will probably have a dozen deleted messages.
    I save every month and leave emails on the server for a month, then only between the two, anyway to lose, I can probably recover most if not all emails.

    If all goes well, this explains what has likely occurred and how to manage things so that in the future, you are less likely to suffer from corrupt files and more likely that you have a loss, there is a backup plan that you can use.

  • Loss of Inbox of emails

  • Loss of historical emails using Windows Easy Transfer

    Was previously running Windows XP with Office 2010, including Outlook 2010. Want to upgrade to Office 2013 which does not work on Windows XP so decided to upgrade to Windows 7 Home premium.  Following the instructions in Microsoft that I used Windows Easy Transfer to save all settings and data by following the instructions on an external hard drive. Has also created a copy of My Documents just to be safe. Following the instructions I installed Windows 7, reinstalled the data and settings from the Windows download file is then installed Office 2013.

    All data files appear to be present and my contacts were all in Outlook 2013 however no historical emails were present. I had a lot of stored in subfolders under Inbox and sent messages and everything disappeared.

    It seems strange that all contacts were copied and transferred across using Windows Easy Transfer, but not historical emails. There is no specific reference to this problem in Microsoft "upgrade Windows XP to Windows 7 instruction set.

    Is it true that the files containing the e-mails were copied, but Outlook 2013 is looking for them in a different place, or does Windows Easy Transfer copy not the Inbox and sent to the files that would be a huge gap?

    Windows Easy Transfer is not good to backup Outlook emails at all.

    If you did a custom installation, check if the Windows.old folder to the root of the hard disk to see if your. PST file is there and copy it to your Documents folder in Windows 7.

    Save the folder outlook located under:

    C:\Windows.old\Documents and Settings\Account_Name\Local Settings\Microsoft\Outlook

    When you migrate to Windows 7, and then reinstall Microsoft Office, just backup copy of the contents of the folder Outlook in the following location:

    C:\Users\Account_Name\AppData\Local\Microsoft\

  • Question of Gmail RFC 5321, fails to send emails

    I use Gmail with TB 38.3.0 on MAC OSX 10.9.5. In the last days, I was repeatedly making the following failure message:

    "An error has occurred when sending mail. The mail server responded: 5.1.2 the specified address is not a valid address of RFC 5321. y77sm17688366wme.15 - gsmtp. Please verify that your email address is correct in your account settings and try again.

    It comes from TB in a message of error rather than the demon of Gmail mail dialog.

    I use a hidden email address that we have passed the URL some time ago and couldn't change our e-mail settings.

    It becomes a real problem, I love TB and cannot pass gmail... can anyone help?

    Unfold in Google:

    Hey all -

    Yes, last week we deployed a change that applied validation of the MAIL FROM argument to be a valid RFC 5321 e-mail address.

    This validation occurs on all servers SMTP Gmail works, so for incoming MX servers, smtp.gmail.com MSA presentation servers and GfW SMTP relay servers. Previously, we were doing validation at later stages that could cause the message bounces and other issues. This change pushed the validation of the first use so that people are more aware of the problem.

    In the case of the MSA (third with smtp.gmail.com and user connections clients), we have rewritten the MAIL FROM to match one of the personalized valid user addresses (or vacuum in the case of rebounds) to a large number of years. Apparently, this has allowed to have bad configuration which has persisted for a long time, people. It also means that we see a lot of failures of third party such as Foscam and Samsung cameras and software of third parties such as SyncBackup devices. We may have to relax those requirements in the case of the MSA for this reason, but the ETA of such a solution is perhaps the end of this week or early next week.

    We are not planning to relax the requirements for MX and relay, however. In these cases, we do not really have a good address to substitute to, and if we don't override it, messages are unable to bounce back, which can cause people to perceive as loss of message delivery failures.

    In addition, a warning: we are grateful for traces of transaction SMTP which provided several people, but be aware that the trace of the transaction for an MSA transaction will contain the authentication information that people can steal and use. Please remove or XXXX long character strings in the AUTH of the newspaper part.

    Thanks for the reports and sorry for the confusion.
