Missing mail messages...

Don't know if it of a question of Sierra or not, but it's the first time it's happened and in 2 days to upgrade to Sierra.

My mail main account of IMAP e-mail was working fine this morning.  About 49 000 messages.  I looked on the message window this afternoon and it was completely empty.  No messages.  Title bar displays "0 filtered messages.

Messages appear on my phone/ipad/webmail, but not in Apple Mail for this particular account.  Other accounts appear correctly.

I tried to rebuild the mailbox, without change.

I deleted the IMAP account and she recreated, it again downloads the messages from 49 000, but does not display them.

The messages are still on the IMAP server, I can do a 'about this account"and it shows there are 49 000 messages in the Inbox.

So, now what?


With Mail leave...

Navigate to the folder of the user library. This 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.

• Access to containers.  Drag the com.apple.mail desktop folder

• Navigate to the Mail folder.

Select the V4 > MailData folder.

Delete all files in MailData with envelope in the name. (or 3)

Open Mail. It will re-index your files.

Let me know if it solves your problem.

    Hi Marion,.

    The most likely cause is that you have a setting that is configured to do this in your e-mail program or in your online account.  I recommend that to start with your email provider to see if they can help you with this problem (as it's probably something in these settings, or they may be able to find the settings in the program that you are using if it's one they know).  If they can help or saying is not your online account settings, then we need to know the version of Windows you use, e-mail program, (name and version) you are using, or the browser you use to access the account.  With this, we can help you with the problem or refer you to experts that specialize in what you use.

    Thanks and good luck!

  • Images blocked in an e-mail message in Windows Mail

    I double click the e-mail message as suggested in the help section, but no information bar will appear to allow me to display the image. I also tried to auto download all the images in e-mail by disabling "block images and other external content in HTML e-mail" and click 'OK' but that no longer works.

    Any thoughts?

    First of all, let me thank Don, Sail 1234 and Kevin for your help.  I looked at my software security and windows mail in detail and it seems that all the settings are ok. Because of the terminology I may have missed something important, but everything seems to be ok. Kevin, article ask Leo.com was very interesting. I took his advice and put the addresses of people I know and get the emails on my 'list '. Since I did it I did not have the problem. If all goes well, that takes care of the situation. Incidentally, I sent an e-mail response to the person who sent me the original pattern that does not print and it resent it as an attachment and it came through fine.

    Thanks again for your help,

  • My contacts an "undeliverable mail" message when send me emails

    Hello! Since I installed Thunderbird, I've had some of my contacts say they receive an "undeliverable mail" message when they try to send me emails. This affects 2 email addresses which I configured on Thunderbird, and is not a problem before using Thunderbird. It affects a couple of different contacts who correctly typed my e-mail address in.
    I really like Thunderbird with the exception of this problem! Please let me know what could be the problem.
    I'm running Thunderbird 38.3.0

    Thank you!

    The "undeliverable mail" message Mailor Daemon has generally a little more information, which can help identify what is happening. You must obtain a copy of this message to develop possible questions.

    You have exhausted your quota on the server?
    Check it out now.
    If you have exhausted the quota server cannot accept e-mails more until a space is freed.

    Maybe the sender was spotted by email address, IP address or using a server which sends spam and your server is rejected.

  • retrieve e-mail messages are erased macbook pro

    I deleted and erased hundreds of emails from my old macbook pro, because I am now using my other.  What I did, however, also affected my new computer, and I've lost over 1000 emails.  Is there something I can do?  They went on the server also.

    Looks like you have an IMAP email account. This type of account will synchronize e-mail messages between all devices. If you delete a device you remove the server as well as all other devices.  You might also have a POP3 account and it was Setup deletes from the server.

    You have two possible solutions:

    -Restore deleted messages to a backup like Time Machine. Just be careful since then restore again, they can be deleted if an IMAP account.

  • Is there a way to set a follow-up reminder of an e-mail message?

    I want to set a reminder on an e-mail message, so that on a date and time the reminder will activate and tell me about the message on which I put the reminder. I found the tags in Thunderbird, but I'd rather have a reminder pop up. Thank you!

    I would define it as a calendar event. You can convert a message to an event and all you have to do is set the time and date for the reminder. If you synchronize a remotely shared calendar then you will also get reminders on your phone, tablets or other computers, if you wish.

  • 3 days to import e-mail messages since the update of 10.11.6?

    After having updated to El Capitan 10.11.6, I opened Mail and was invited to import e-mail Messages to the new format.

    3 days later, he still has not finished.

    I can't use the Mail at all. It worked fine until the update.

    What can be done to fix this?

    Thank you


    Hello timnorman1,

    Thank you for using communities of Apple Support.

    If I understand your message, after upgrading to OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 you've been prompted to import your messages, but it took 3 days and it still didn't complete the process. I understand how it is important for you to be able to access your mail after upgrading the software on your MacBook Pro.

    I recommend the force to leave the Mail app and then open it again.

    Force a nearby application on your Mac.

    If the problem persists, you may want to restart your Mac and try it again.

    Archive messages or move them to some other local mailboxes or mailboxes on the server. Don't know what you are trying to do because it appears that you have 2/3 of your hard disk.

    Why do you think archiving emails in 2 places? Where are you trying to save space to?
