"91590.emlx" couldn't be copied to "Messages" because an item with the same name already exists. How do I fix this?

The delete button in Mail gives me this message: “91590.emlx” couldn’t be copied to “Messages” because an item with the same name already exists. The only thin that has changed is an OS update last evening. (Mountain Lion)

Thanks...it was spooky seeing the mail in my box suddenly disappear and blank after going to Mailbox and Rebuild.  But "poof" it was up again and was able to delete without the messages telling me it had a duplicate in trash (which it did).  Solved the problem.

    HI ...
    Absolutely.
    Apps must be stored in the Applications folder on the startup disk they were downloaded to.
    It's not a permissions issue. 

  • HT5767 My mail all of a sudden would not allow me to delete messages in my inbox saying, "couldn't be copied to "Messages" because an item with the same name already exists." Found it duplicates the message I wanted deleted in trash.

    Still  using the @mac.com   mail  address and up   to date on everything, but have not gone to Maverick.  All of a sudden Mail wouldn't let me delete.  Said that title of email was already in trash.  And sure enough it was.  Clicking on the help button on the message gets Nothing.

    Any ideas.  My mail is not tied to gmail etc.. just all by it's lonesome.

    This procedure is a diagnostic test. It’s unlikely to solve your problem. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.
    The purpose of the test is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party software that loads automatically at startup or login, by a peripheral device, or by corruption of certain system caches. 
    Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards. Boot in safe mode and log in to the account with the problem. Note: If FileVault is enabled on some models, or if a firmware password is set, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can’t do this. Ask for further instructions.
    Safe mode is much slower to boot and run than normal, and some things won’t work at all, including sound output and  Wi-Fi on certain iMacs. The next normal boot may also be somewhat slow.
    The login screen appears even if you usually log in automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin. Test while in safe mode. Same problem? After testing, reboot as usual (i.e., not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of the test.

  • What does "74559.emlx" couldn't be copied to "Messages" because there isn't enough space, really mean?  How do I find out what is taking up so much space?

    Help!!  I am trying to figure out what "74559.emlx" is.  I was delating a email message when this poped up!?  I higlighed the message and then hit the delete button. 
    I understand that my computer is full, so now I am trying to move this over to an external hard-drive, how do I know if it's been moved or just copied?  How can I see what is on the computer and how "big" it is? 
    Sorry for all the questions, ANY help is much appreciated!!!

    "Other" is everything that isn't in one of the other categories. For instance, it includes all your user documents that are not movie, audio, or photo files.
    Regardless of that, you need to use an external drive at least large enough to backup your entire user folder (the one with a House icon). Better is to get one at least as large as your built-in drive & use something like Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper! to clone the whole built-in drive to it.

  • Copying a PageItem to Another Document, When the Color Name Already Exists in the Target Document

    (CS5 and ActionScript)
    I am trying to copy a PageItem from Document A to Document B.
    If the PageItem in Document A has a Color named "MyColor", and that Color already exists in Document B, then when I duplicate the PageItem from Document A to B, a new Color called "MyColor 2" is created in Document B.
    What I wanted was for the PageItem to simply take on the deifintion of "MyColor" which was already in Document A.
    If you perform this activity manually in the desktop UI, no duplicate color is created and the PageItem recieves de facto the original color values for the original "MyColor" in target document B.
    Any ideas?

    Sorry - mistake crept in. I meant:

  • Cannot backup my files / copy my files and folders due to error message " The operation can't be completed because an item with the name ".DS_Store" already exists. "

    Hi Apple community!
    I have a [rather worrying] problem.
    When I try to copy all my files from my documents on my mac [or the entire documents folder] into an external drive, I get this error message
    " The operation can’t be completed because an item with the name “.DS_Store” already exists. "
    I am not given an option to skip this file or anything else.
    But I simply cannot complete the operation!
    I have tried deleting a few of the .ds_store files, [both in the original and in the destinations]
    but no success.
    The same thing keeps happening.
    At first, this was just happening when I was trying to backup to my dropbox folder [the one on my mac's harddrive, which gets synced to the cloud],
    but then I tried to back up my documents to my external hard drive, and I realized it is giving me the same error message.
    So effectively, it seems I cannot backup my files anywhere!
    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.

  • My mail messages are blank after upgrading to OS X Mavericks. How do I fix this??

    My mail messages are blank after upgrading to OS X Mavericks. How do I fix this??

    Hi, I had this same problem. I have a load of work subfolders and was showing the message header but no content. I think it lost the link to the original messages.
    There may be a simpler way but I fixed it by going to the mail folders in finder. I took the following steps:
    Go to user library (hold down the alt key whilst clicking the Go menu in finder to access user library)
    Go to user/Library/Mail/V2/Mailboxes. You should be able to see your mailboxes and your original messages (ending .emlx) after clicking down the hierachy in each mailbox. For some reason mail added a "-2" onto the end of each mailbox which I think has caused the problem.
    Copy each required mailbox (.mbox) onto desktop. I removed the "-2" at this stage to clean things up.
    In Mail, choose File/Import Mailboxes....
    Import data from: Apple Mail. Click continue, navigate to desktop and choose the relevant .mbox folders. Click Choose.
    It should then import the mail to a new folder called import in mail. You can then rename that folder or move the subfolders out.
    I moved the .mbox folders on my desktop to my documents folder as a backup just in case. I then deleted the problem mailboxes from the finders mailboxes folder.
    Problem solved - for me anyway!!
    Hope this helps.
