Some messages reappear in a mailbox

Hello,
Since one month ago, "Mail" is becoming inconsistent.
Here is how the problem occurs:
I create a new message (or respond to someone);
I hit the "Send" button; my message is indeed sent;
A new persistent message appears in the "Draft" mailbox. This is a copy of a random message in my main mailbox.
A can delete this message, but the problem starts again as soon as I send a new message.
I have over 16195 messages in my mailbox (divided in two folders). I think the problem is that Mail does not support a so big number of messages, but, in fact, I don't know much about Mail.
I tried the "Rebuild" function, on every folder but the problem remains.
The only thing I can think of to correct this problem would be to save all my messages (from the ~/library/mail folder) and then reset Mail to start over with no messages. I want to be wrong, though.
Any idea on what's happening? Any hint?

How many accounts are you accessing with Mail and the type of account - .Mac, IMAP or POP?
If you are accessing a .Mac or IMAP account, are you storing Drafts on the server or locally on the hard drive?
> A new persistent message appears in the "Draft" mailbox. This is a copy of a random message in my main mailbox.
Which main mailbox are you referring to - the account's Inbox mailbox or Sent mailbox?
> I have over 16195 messages in my mailbox (divided in two folders). I think the problem is that Mail does not support a so big number of messages, but, in fact, I don't know much about Mail.
For which mailbox?
Does divided in two folders refer to the account's Inbox and Sent mailbox or something else?
There is no limit on the number of messages that Mail supports but there is mailbox size limit recommendation. The recommended mailbox size limit for each mailbox is 2 GB with Tiger Mail. Other than this, your only limit is your free hard drive space.

  • When exporting and then importing Apple Mail from one mac to another I get "Some messages could not be imported. Partially imported mailbox will be labeled IMPORT" . That mailbox does not appear.

    Any help would be welcome

    This is a bug in Mail. The mailbox archiving function does not include attachments, which  gives the error with the import. To workaround this you can create a mailbox in Mail and copy to it all emails you want to export. Then go in Finder to [user]/Library/Mail/Mailboxes en select the created mailbox. Copy this to the public directory of your other mac. Then start Mail on that other mac and import the mailbox from the public directory. Should work now.

  • Can not find some messages in Mail using search

    I have some problems with Mail.app I can not find some messages in Mail using search, the strange thing is that sometimes mail search finds some messages, but after rebuilding spotlight index the search displays other messages with the all messages searched using same search criteria. I have also tried to delete Envelope index file from the Mail folder in usr/library and forced mail to import all mailboxes but it started to crash importing some of mailboxes - I deleted the messages from that mailboxes, imported remaining mailboxes and tried to rebuild mailbox, but everything without a successes. Any ideas how to solve it?

  • Mail not can read some messages.

    I use Mail (3.6) and after do the 10.5.8 upgrade I can not read some messages (the message appears in white), but I can read the same message with Entourage for example...
    I have the same problem with Safari... some sites appears now in white and I cannot read them...
    Before, with the 10.5.7, always work perfect.
    You can help me?
    Thanks!

    Hiya Trebla07,
    have you had a look at mail/preferences/fonts & colours? When you click on the e.g. "mailbox font / Select...", you find tabs for "document colour"; tried changing that?
    Anything in there that could change the colour of the font?
    As I suspect it is merely a white font on a white screen background, which would, of course, be illegible.
    In Safari, it would be preferences/appearance.
    Although it's peculiar that this occured after the 10.5.8 update, but apart from a corrupt font/preference, I would not know what would cause this.
    NB: I just went to elperiodico and it looks fine in Safari. What is the "default encoding" (also found in preferences/appearance)?

  • Some message cannot be flagged unread

    Hi,
    I am developing a web-interface for our mailserver, and I can't mark some messages as unread.
    No exception is thrown, but it simply doesn't do what I want it to do.
    I used an iptrace to see what's wrong, and I see that my interface sends a request, gets an "COMPLETED" response, but when listing the folder, the flag is still set. (the \SEEN flag)
    Any comments?
    Please help
    Mike

    No, its an IMAP server and it is standing in a 10 meter distance from me, in our kitchen. I'm not behind any firewall (of course I am, but no firewall is between me and the GW). I don't even know if a pop3 server is active (we use cyrus with SSL, but also without SSL).
    The important thing is:
    I think I explained it, but I don't see my post now so I say it again: Some messages are flagged correctly, some are not.
    E.G.:
    We receive cron mails (for windows people: cron-jobs are jobs that run at a particular time, e.g. every night or every week, ...) from amavis and, and I don't konw why, THOSE mails can't be flagged.
    Also mails that are put into the mailbox by fetchmail (a program that receives mail from an external mail server) can't be flagged. We use fetchmail ONLY to get mails sent to our old E-Mail address, wich is not in our domain.
    So I can summarize, but I'm not sure if this is the crucial point, All mail sent NOT to the original E-Mail address can't be changed, but can be deleted.
    If someone wonders how mail gets into our mailbox when it's not for the original address, I mean the two possible ways:
    1. aliases - a file that describes a mapping of users to mailbox (e.g. map "[email protected]" to "[email protected]").
    2. fetchmail - a program I described before.
    Also it can't be a pop3 server because pop3 only retreives mails and doesn't support changing mails.
    We use IMAP to be able to get mails from all over the world and have a centralized mailbox. On our old ISP we had a mailbox somewhere in vienna and it didn't belong to us and - the important thing - it didn't support IMAP. So If we had received a mail from home and then went to italy we didn't have a copy of the mail there - except when we left a copy on the server (an option that most E-Mail-Clients provide), but then the mailbox got full soon.
    So please help!

  • Importing Windows Outlook 2007 email to Mac Mail using Thunderbird Workaround Looses Some Messages

    After being away from using a Mac for 5 years I'm back with an iMac.
    I found this workaround to import Outook 2007 emails to Mac Mail using Thunderbird on the PC http://www.trickyways.com/2010/08/how-to-transfer-emails-from-outlook-to-apple-m ail/
    On the PC Thunderbird imports all my Outlook messages correctly and all are there.
    Then when I import the resulting Thunderbird mailboxes to Mac Mail some messages are being lost. The directory structure for my mail folders imports correctly, just that some messages are missing.
    There are earlier posts here saying Eudora Mailbox Cleaner worked for people but this wont run on Mountain Lion.
    So has anybody got any ideas on how the get  all my Outlook e-mails to the Mac without losing anything?
    What about software like Outlook2Mac, does it work fully or will I still have the same issue of some lost mail?
    Can't believe I am having this problem migrating Window to Mac, you'd think it would work perfectly and not put people off from switching.
    Cheers.

    Okay I slept on it and had a brain wave.
    I set up iCloud Mail on Outlook 2007. Then copy messages from my Outlook Inbox to iCloud Inbox.
    On the Mac copy the messages from iCloud Inbox to a folder On My Mac so they never get lost if I delete the iCloud account.
    Playing about with it and it seems to work fine. Any reason why it could cause issues?
    I love it when a workaround comes together!

  • Why are some messages marked as duplicates in Mail?

    I added my Yahoo! account to Mail but there is a problem with the Sent mailbox. Some messages (as many as 22 at a time) are being marked as duplicates of each other even though they have absolutely nothing in common (other than the sender). I've already tried rebuilding the mailbox; but it produces the exact same result. Any ideas?

    I was going through my iPod cover flow and noticed the same thing. THEN I saw that one album was listed as "Steers And Stripes", another was "Steers and Stripes" and yet another was "Steers & Stripes".
    So - check how they are labeled in the iPod. I went back to my iTunes library and there is only one version of that album in the computer. Haven't figured out how to bring it to ONE on the iPod, though.

  • Exchange 2007 Export-Mailbox Error Message on only certain mailbox

    I have searched high and low for a solution to this, but no such luck. Hopefully someone has had the same issue and can help me out.
    I am attempting to export and then remove a date range for mailboxes before I migrate to an Exchange 07 server. The mailboxes range in the 10 GB range. I am attempting to use the Exchange 2007 cmdlet to do this with due to it does not have a 2 GB limit like the Exmerge of past.
    The command I am using is as follows:
    [PS] C:\>Export-Mailbox -Identity User -StartDate "01/01/07" -EndDate "01/30/08"
    -IncludeFolders "\Inbox","\Sent Items" -PSTFolderPath c:\PST\pst.pst
    This command works fine on some of the mailboxes in the Exchange03 system. But on some of the mailboxes I am getting the following error.
    Error occurred in the step: Moving messages. Failed to copy messages to t
    he destination mailbox store with error:
    MAPI or an unspecified service provider.
    ID no: 00000000-0000-00000000, error code: -1056749164
    Any ideas?

    Hello Joe Rod (and others)
    Thought I'd bring this over as a cross post because no-one seems to be picking it up in the 'admin' section. I believe I'm having a similar issue to yourself, as detailed below:
    Hi all,
    I've already posted this same question elsewhere, but if anyone here can resolve the issue or suggest a better way (without using archiving software - yet!), I'd be most grateful. I'd even be happy if someone can replicate the problem so I know I'm not going mad... I'm trying to set up a quick & dirty quarter year pst mail archive for one of our users on our Exchange 2007 (SP1) box. Using the command:
    export-mailbox -id userA -pstfolderpath \\testpath\test.pst -enddate "01/03/2007"
    I come up against this error:
    Error occurred in the step: Moving messages. Failed to copy messages to the destination mailbox store with error: MAPI or an unspecified service provider. ID no: 00000000-0000-00000000, error code: -1056749164
    Which I understand is a fairly standard permissions error. Problem is that I know the permissions are set correctly, having tested the function by removing the -enddate parameter; and getting a successful export.
    I worked out after a while that the command seems to fall over when it hits a subfolder, so I tested this by using the -includefolders parameter. The command:
    export-mailbox -id userA -pstfolderpath \\testpath\test.pst -includefolders '\inbox' -enddate "01/03/2007"
    will fail if there are any subfolders under '\inbox'. Add the names of the subfolders:
    export-mailbox -id userA -pstfolderpath \\testpath\test.pst -includefolders '\inbox\subfolder1' -enddate "01/03/2007"
    and as long as those subfolders don't have any subfolders, I will get a successful export.
    Any help appreciated.
    Cheers
    Dan
    If anyone is able to replicate this, please let me know, I'd love to get this sorted. If it is a known problem - can I use someone's PSS contact please?!

  • Grey blank page for some messages since upgrading to mountain lion

    Just upgraded several days ago from Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion (10.8.3) and I have notice that some email messages (Apple Mail) I only get a blank grey page. I know I have a lot of messages in my mail account and wonder if that might be the problem. Any help would be appreciated.
    Jerry

    I tried rebuild but it did not help. I still have a grey empty page on some messages. They usually part of a conversation, I tried to uncheck the "organize by conversation" but I still randomly have that problem. Sometimes if I quit and reopen Mail it goes away but other times it doesn't. Is it possible that having a large number of messages in the inbox might be responsible?

  • How to delete multiple messages in the same mailbox all at once? Unity Connection

    I just was assigned the task of administrating three Unity Connection servers that are networked. The Operator mailboxes on each system have been taking messages since 2010 and have over 5 thousand messages in them (nearly 3 mega bytes). I've corrected the set up so the mailboxes no longer are taking messages, but would like to delete all the new messages in order free up memory resources, and I don't want to undo all the Call Handler relationships in order to delete the mailboxes and then recreate them, etc. I used the PCA tool  to clean up the Operator MBX on a standalone Unity Connection that had nearly 1800 messages, but it took nearly 30 minutes for the PCA tool to load and another 4.5 hours to delete one message at a time (major carpal tunnel afterwards!).  For these mailboxes with 5-6K messages, the PCA tool was  not loaded after 3 hours!   Is there a faster, more efficient tool for deleting all new messages in a single mailbox? (i.e., Message Hunter?)

    Hi There,
    +5 to heath for his good notes!
    One nice way with Unity Connection is with the use of this excellent tool from the great suite of Unity Tools (use the ** reset" feature **).
    Unity Connection Bulk User Delete   
    For resetting users you have the option of emptying the mailbox,  resetting greetings, deleting voice names,  resetting passwords,  removing private lists and a number of other  options you may choose.   For installations where the user base “changes  over” frequently such as  schools this may be a nicer option.  This  option is also allowed for  CoRes installations since it does not involve  the removal of user  objects from the Connection database.

    Ive just upgraded my late 2009 macbook, and things are not working properly. First of all, when I started the computer first time after installing Mountain Lion, some message advised me that some files were impossible to install. Once I wrote my password, and for now on, everytime I start the session, another window advise me that "Java SE 6" is missing, due that, the computer can't run some "CS5Service Manager". If I try to install it, the download ends with an error. If finally, you skip the istallation, you arrive to the dock, but the menu bar at the top of the screen doesn't show up.
    In addition, my trackpad doesn't works either. I can move the arrow but i can't click anywhere, probably because the option of clicking by touching is disabeled and I can't performance a regular click.
    I'll be very glad if someone know what the heck is happening with my computer. Anyway, I'm going to the genius bar next Saturday. Thx!
