mail does not remove the trash after 30 days selected in the preferences. Why?

I selected emails in the trash in mail should be deleted after 30 days.  Messages in the trash are not deleted.  It started recently, after the upgrade to El Capitan.  Can someone help me?


Same problem here. The e-mail rule--> accounts--> Expunge deleted e-mails after one day. week | month becomes active. I installed Spamsieve, but should not intervene. Someone suggested to delete the respective Mail.plists, but there is nothing else than - shared.plist in ~/Library/preferences.

    The options are selected.

    What options?

    In Windows Live Mail 2012, you should have check my spelling as I type selected and always check spelling before sending unchecked for reliable results. Check spelling in a language of current entry disables the default language setting and vice versa. If you need check spelling in multiple languages, use the first one. And, of course, the proofing tools language for the input language must be installed to check the spelling on the job.

  • After the 10.11.2, update Mac Mail does not show the number of unread emails badge.

    What can I do?


    In the menu bar, you select

     ▹ System Preferences... ▹ Notifications application icon ▹ Mail ▹ Badge: on

    If the badge is still not displayed or displays the wrong count, see below.


    Please stop Mail. Force quit if necessary.

    Back up all data before proceeding.

    If you use OS X 10.11 ("El Capitan") or version later, triple - click anywhere in the line below on this page to select:


    If you use an older version of Mac OS X, use this line:


    Copy the selected text in the Clipboard by pressing Control-C key combination. In the Finder, select

    Go ▹ go to folder

    in the menu bar. Paste in the box that opens by pressing Command + V, then press return.

    A file window opens. In it he must be files with names as follows:

    Index of the envelope


    Move these files to the desktop, leaving the window open. Other files in the folder can have names more long that begin as above. Move these files, if any, in the trash.

    Mail recovery. It should invite you to re - import your messages. You can get a warning that the index is corrupted and that Mail must quit smoking. Click OK. Generally speaking, the process takes a few minutes, but this can take hours if you have gigantic mailboxes. In this case, you will be able to speed things up temporarily by adding your file to the list of personal information protection in the Spotlight preferences pane. Remove it when Mail has finished importing.

    If the import operation stalls or fails with an error message, quit Mail, delete the two new index files (maintenance of the original that you moved to the desktop) and try again. According to several reports, the second attempt can succeed if one does not.

    Test. If Mail now works as expected, you can delete the files that you moved to the desktop. If not, post your results.

  • Finder does not remove the files?

    I deleted a lot of videos (files) because they were in my photos, then, even after having emptied the Recycle Bin and rebooted the computer files appear again and are able to play when you type 'Movies' in the Spotlight (order space) search. When I click on the file need me to photo but it does not appear, so, how can I get the files to display.

    From the Photos app, click on "Albums" on top, then "recently deleted".

    If you want, double-click recently removed to enter the album, then 'Delete All' at the top right.

    Just as you shouldn't use Finder to remove music, etc., located in iTunes, you should also not use Finder to remove photos or videos that are found in the Photos (or iPhoto) application.

  • Why mail does not show the sender in El Capitan?

    On my MacBook Air, it shows the sender on new messages. Just reinstalled OS on iMac, and mail will no longer display the sender. I have half a dozen email addresses of two people. I need to know what address I send from. Is it a new 'improved '? Is there a solution? It cannot find in the menus...

    Rebuild the mailbox

    If this does not work, try re-indexing of mailboxes mailbox. This can take some time if you have a lot of mail.

  • Mail does not display the mailbox

    After a few computer problems, I wiped my own PowerMac and started from scratch with a clean install of El Capitan.  I have half a dozen emails, and trying to think ahead, I made a backup of the Mail folder that is located in the library of the 'hidden' user (where it maintains pressed press Option key to access the library under the Go menu folder).

    After that cleaning installed, I got my mail folder backup and he PLOPPED in my user library hidden and shot to the top of Mail, hoping that I would find my accounts of half dozen e-mail waiting for me. But no, they were not visible.  I thought that maybe it was related to a preferences file, so I looked through a Time Machine backup recent of my preferences file, but the preference for mail only I saw there was - shared.plist. I advanced and copied, but still no luck.

    How can I get E-mail to acknowledge once more the many mailboxes I have in my e-mail user library folder?

    I don't really understand if you're wondering how to view the list of mailboxes or how to recognize (for example, to have all accounts and emails arranged correctly) mailbox store.

    To view the mailboxes, use the Mail menu to display > display the list of mailboxes.

    In order to recognize mailboxes, the issue is more complicated, because it is not at all clear to me if "backup of my mail folder" contains enough information to do what you are trying to do.  But you can always try to box the mailbox > rebuild for each of the mailboxes you are showing.
