Mail stuck on "updating color for message 10 of 11"

- the above message just runs constantly. I have repaired permissions, restarted several times but Mail just sits and updates color. Does anyone know how I can deal with this? How do I find message 10 of 11? Should I delete it? Or are there other ways to deal with it?

I, too, am having emails in the list show up colored to yellow. It's not a smart box and it's not the coloring to the background that occurs when it's threaded.
Though I do have rules that apply color, none of them use yellow.
I have rebuilt the box to no avail.

  • Imported 40,000 emails - what does "updating color for messages mean"

    I have just imported 20 MBOX files from my outlook 2011 - a fair amount of emails!!
    But I'm finding that when I click onto the folders, I am getting nothing in teh preview initially sometimes and... some of the folders begins some kind of scan? progress in activity panel say: "updating color for messages"
    Any idea of what is going on? I am new to Mail 4.5...
    I will probably be upgrading tomorrow to lion, so perhaps it won't do this anymore after that?

    ok thank you.
    on another note, does rules actually work? you see I have all these Mail Boxes in Mail now. and I set up a rule so one of my guy's emails goes into their folder when hey send me an email and then when I send to them? but its just not happening? see:
    Any ideas?

  • Setting a default color for messages in Mail

    I figured out how to change the default font & font size in messages in the Mail application, and how to change the color in my signature, however I cannot figure out how to set the default color for new messages?

    Look at the Mail's preferences, under Composing. Select where you like to save notes and todos.

  • Outlook 2010, stuck at updating inbox for users

    Hi. I am a support technician at a company.
    We had a lot of Windows XP, Outlook 2007, systems, e-mail worked excellent.
    We then migrated to Outlook 2010, the XP systems continue working without problems.
    However I've been having some random Windows 7 systems, Outlook 2010, having this issue of the inbox not updating, it just stays stuck at "Updating Inbox" and can stay like that for the whole day.
    This is causing issues because some of those users are VP and of course want their email right away.
    I've tried recreating ost, profile, and issue reappears. However I'm not sure if users don't report it, or if it's just random, because I don't hear about it everyday, just randomly maybe once a week or two times a week.
    None of what I've tried has work, new ost, new profile, repair account, even a new installation of Office. Issue keeps reappearing. Safe mode has same problem. OWA and phones update right away.
    The closest I've come to sort of fixing it is running a repair of Office, after the repair, the emails go through right away, but then issue reappears days later.
    I'm not really sure what could be causing this. I've searched online and seem to find a lot of similar problems with no conclusive solution.
    Some of the things in common, these users receive lots of emails in the mornings, have lots of folders underneath inbox.
    If only it would download them slowly, but it just appears stuck when this happens.

    According to your description, if owa works fine, it most likely a outlook client issue.
    I recommend that you post this in office forum, there will more experts to help you:

  • Mail stuck with "updating cache directory"

    I've been getting bit by Mail getting stuck with "updating cache directory" on just one of my three IMAP accounts (separate providers). Gmail and MobileMe are fine, it is just with FuseMail which uses Microsoft Exchange servers. I have finally found something that may point to the problem: -with-exchange-2007-via-imap-or-owa.html
    Azaleos has now spent 6 months working with Microsoft on this issue.
    The diagnosis appears to be that significant changes were made to the IMAP protocol implementation in Exchange 2007 that significantly deteriorates the performance of MAC Mail.App clients, especially client with large mailboxes, against Exchange 2007 vs. Exchange 2003.
    Although the Microsoft support team’s response has been absolutely exemplary, we have been unable to make the Exchange development team understand the significance of this takeback from Exchange 2003, nor been able to have them implement fixes in the Exchange 2007 stack to address the issue.
    More significantly, we have also received absolutely no response from Apple regarding the deficiencies of the MAC Mail.App client, nor even any acknowledgement of the problem. In fact, from the complete lack of response we’ve received, Apple has an absolutely abysmal Enterprise support capability and far worse than anything we’ve experienced from Microsoft.
    At this time, Azaleos does not recommend that customers who have significant MAC Mail.App implementations with sizeable mailboxes (in excess of 500MB mailboxes) upgrade from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2007.
    We are recommending to customers that they do upgrade to Exchange 2007. But, that any users of MAC Mail.App move immediately to Entourage or to an e-mail client that implements a solution that is less than 10 years out of date.
    Keith McCall
    CTO, Azaleos Corporation
    I'm posting this both as a reference for others and as a question to see if there is a way to resolve this as a customer, other than dumping FuseMail for a non-Microsoft house?

    I finally had to get FuseMail to "reset the IMAP flags" on their end and everything seemed to resolve itself.

  • I have updated to IOS 6, the App store won't work, is stuck in update mode for 1 day and the battery now goes flat in 3 hrs without use. Can I go back to IOS 5?

    Hi, I was forced to upgrade to IOS 6 due to a restore.
    Since the upgrade, I have lost information, the App store is stuck in update mode, my battery drains in hours and many more problems.
    Is there a way to go back to the VERY RELIABLE IOS 5? This phone is nearly useless now.

    Just FYI - the situation is resolved.  I downloaded the new snow leopard 10.6.8 update for safari and now itunes works.  I have no idea what that has to do with anything - but I saw it on another forum and it actually worked.

  • Aperture 3.03 when quitting gets stuck in "Updating information for preview

    Hi there,
    i notice that maybe 3 out of 10 times when i quit aperture, it hangs.
    There is a progress bar at the top saying "updating information for preview images" (translated, so the english original may be a bit different) but the bar wont move, the disc doesnt make any sounds and when i look in the actvity monitor it says aperture has around 35 threads and uses 1% of cpu power.
    i usually then force quite aperture after some time.
    if seems to occur more often after emptying the trash.
    any ideas?
    i get rather frustrated with force quittung becaus i get the feeling its no good for my library, however i run into problems repairing my library as explain elsewhere.

    Alexander, have exactly the same problem, as do many others:
    Hopefully there will be an update soon to fix it.

  • Mail 2.1.1 color code message quandary

    I've been reading about rules and how to apply colors to messages based on specific criterion, however I am trying to apply a color to individual messages. For example, I want all "to do" messages to be red and all "need to reply" messages to be green, etc. When I say messages, I am talking about the list of emails in my inbox.
    How is this possible?
    thanks, warren

    You’re welcome.
    Do you happen to know of a script which will provide a
    right-click/ctrl-click option to choose a color from
    the context menu?
    No, I know of no such thing.

  • IPad Air iOS 8.1 stuck at "update requested" for over 24 hours

    I requested the update for the iPad Air, mini2 and iPhone 5s. The later two updates quite smoothly but no luck for the iPad Air.
    It has been in the "update requested" for over 24 hours, and even worse, any App Store app cannot updated nor download any new app.
    I have tried the hard reset, reset network settings, and reboot for at least 5 times. Anybody meeting the same problem?

    Oh how embarrassing and frustrating! I contributed to that other thread, which was specifically about iPad Air! My iPhone 6 was still updating apps just fine, and I had not bothered to delete the WSJ app from it, since I assumed it was not bothering it. Well, we know what happens when you "***-ume" (but no reflection on you, floydcui , just ME).
    I just deleted the WSJ app from my newsstand, restarted my iPhone and restarted my WiFi. INSTANTLY IOS 8.1 STARTED DOWNLOADING.
    You're right, how could one app cause so much frustration? I posted a comment to apple support how poisonous the WSJ app is, and I left a warning review among the hundreds already on the WSJ app page.

  • Sound for messages from a specific email address

    I get a couple of hundred email messages a day. I have Mail checking every five minutes for messages. I obviously don't want Mail to bong me every five minutes that it's got new messages, but I would really like if it could make a sound when I get mail from a specific email address. Is this possible?
    All the best,

    You may be able to do what you want through "Rules" which is in Mail/Preferences/Rules. Click on the _"Add Rules"_ button. From that window, you will be able to select specific email addresses that you want to add a specific sound to *(Perform the following actions)*.
    Under the General tab, I gather you need to have "New Messages Sound" set to "None."
    *"Play sounds for other mail actions"* should be checked.

    This is your husband's app, only your husband can update it. Apps are forever tied to the Apple ID that purchased them. No other Apple ID can update someone else's app.

  • My iPhone is not receiving mail but these messages continue to flash at the bottom of the screen:  Checking for messages, Updated just now, checking for messages, etc.  After a minute or so it will flash downloading 1 - 32 messages but nothing is received

    My iPhone is not receiving mail but the following messages continue to flash over and over at the bottom of the screen:  "Checking for messages, Updated just now, Checking for messages", etc.  After a minute or so it will flash downloading 1 - 32 messages but nothing is received and then the "Checking for Messages," etc. starts back again.   I turned the phone off for 30+ minutes and also tried to reset it, but the problem continues.   Any ideas on how to solve the problem?

    Double click the home button and swipe up the messages app to stop it, then open the app again. This pretty much completely stops the process and freshly opens it again, resolving problems at times. I have had this happen before as well on my iPad, I get a banner, check messages, and nothing new is there.
    If that doesn't work, close the app like suggested above, but then restart the phone by holding down the home and lock button for 10-15 seconds until the apple logo appears.
