When deleting messages I get this message:"74608.emlx" couldn't be copied to "Messages" because an item with the same name already exists.  How can I fix this problem?

When trying to delete messages in mail, I've been getting this message:“74608.emlx” couldn’t be copied to “Messages” because an item with the same name already exists."  The numbers at the beginning are always different but the ".emlx" and the rest of the statement is always the same.  How can I fix this problem?
Thanks

  • Cannot delete read mail. Keep getting the following message "926540.emlx" couldn't be copied to "Messages" because an item with the same name already exists.

    I am trying to free up room on my hard drive but keep getting the following message. “926540.emlx” couldn’t be copied to “Messages” because an item with the same name already exists. 926540.emix is the number given to the email I want to delete. This message appears (with a different .emix number) when I try to delete any mail. I have junk mail from 2014 to 2009 that I want to delete

  • 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.
    The selected topic is currently unavailable.

    "couldn’t be copied to “Messages” because an item with the same name already exists."
    Any ideas.  My mail is not tied to gmail etc.. just all by it's lonesome.

    Please read this whole message before doing anything.
    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.

  • "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.

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

  • Firefox downloads a file with the wrong file extension. How can I fix this?

    The title says it all. When I download files, it comes out with the wrong extension, not sure what extension it comes out as.
    It actually just comes out as "file."
    How can I fix this? Is there something in about:config I can tweak to eliminate this error?

    Hi dartz!
    This type of problems are not related with the browser you are using, in this case, Firefox. This issues are the consequence of the way that the website "packed" the file.
    What you should do is download the file, locate the file, give right click on the file and select "Rename". Now, don't change the name!!! Just add "." and then the extension that you wanted. Example, you download the file "norwegianwood", after renaming it, it should read "norwegianwood.srt".
    Hope this works for you, take care!

  • Photoshop Elements 10 won't run with the new Yosemite OS. How can I fix this?

    Ever since we updated to Yosemite OS we've had so many problems with our programs. I can't even open Photoshop Elements 10. Is there any way to fix this?

    First of all, don't try to sign in. Photoshop.com is dead and gone and PSE will hang forever looking for the non-existent servers. Just start the editor or organizer directly from the application file and use that. The editor is this one, not the one at the top level of the PSE 10 folder in applications:
    Also, it's very important to delete existing preferences on upgrading OS X:

  • When clicking "Save image as" how can I get Firefox to auto add a (1) (2) etc at the end of the filename if an image with the same filename already exists?

    How can I get Firefox to automatically rename images when clicking "Save image as" on the menu, when an image with the same file name already exists in the folder??

    Hello,
    That is not a feature that is supported natively within Firefox but there are various add-ons which I think will do the job you need.
    The one I have used is [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/web-slide-show/?src=search Web Slide Show]. This is primarily an add-on for viewing a slideshow of images when they are presented as thumbnails on a web page. However once you are in the slideshow there is a download button which will download all the images in the slideshow. It will automatically rename the images if an image with the same name already exists in the folder.
    If you don't like that add-on then here are some others that may do the same job:
    * [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/image-download-%E2%85%B1/?src=search Image Download II]
    * [https://addons.mozilla.org/En-us/firefox/addon/image-picker/ Image Picker]
    I hope that helps. Let me know if not.
    Also I notice that you are using Firefox v23. That is now an outdated version. To get the latest security updates I suggest updating to version 24. See the support article here: [[Update Firefox to the latest version]].

    Firefox sent an email to me to confirm that I had asked the above question. The email had a link to click. When I clicked it from Firefox, nothing happened. Then I opened IE, signed into Comcast, opened the email, clicked the link, and it brought me here.
