Apple Mail SMART Mailboxes

I am looking for a way to more effectively use SMART Mailboxes.
I send many emails to about 20 different recipients and would like a way to more easily track both sent messages to each recipient and received messages from each recipient. This includes messages that the recipient as been copied on from other contacts. I cannot figure it out. It is almost as if SMART mailboxes need and "and"/"or" option.
Please help!

Why not mark each person as a VIP?  Then you get a VIP mailbox for them that will show you messages you have sent to them as well as those received from them.

  • Apple Mail smart mailboxes no longer work

    Well, the subject says it all.
    I am running Mail 7.3 under Mac OS X 10.9.5 and have 8 smart mailboxes set up. However, as of this morning, none of them are displaying any emails, along with all the VIPs. However, all other folders etc are working normally.
    Any suggestions anyone?

    Ok, so I was right about the Combo updater - wouldn't install on my system.
    So I tried all your other suggestions (well, except for installing Yosemite) and no go, although I'm not sure that resetting my file and folder permissions worked properly (I waited 15 mins and still didn't get the 'reset' button back again, so I just continued on with the rest of the steps).

  • How do I transfer old mail & smart mailboxes from old iMac to Macboook Pro?

    Hello. I just got my new Macbook Pro with Mac OSX version 10.5.2. I set up my mail account on the computers mac's mail application but I am having trouble transferring my old mail and smart mailboxes from my old computer (iMac with version 10.4.11). I transfered over everything in the "Mail" folder in the "Library", but my old mail and smart mailboxes with that mail are not showing up on my new computer. Any advice of how to do this please!?

    Hi raenn, and a warm welcome to the forums!
    The easiest way is to either network the 2 Macs, or use FW Target Mode on the older one..
    Then use Migration Assistant in Applications>Utilities to import all that.

  • Mail: smart mailbox contents disappears/search doesn't work & fix is only temporary

    Since installing Mavericks (including the Mail update), the contents of my Smart Mailboxes disappears (the Mailboxes themselves are listed, there's just no content) and my ability to get results from Search within Mail disappears. 
    I have done a lot of searching here and via Google and read other people with similar problems.  I have done the usual magical stuff: resetting permissions (including the version that involves the command "resetpassword"), deleting caches, etc. - but to no avail.
    Spotlight clearly knows about all this mail, because I can find it with HoudahSpot, which uses the same database, but somehow Mail is not able to read what Spotlight knows.
    Now there is a commonly recommended fix, which is to go to Terminal and type some version of:
    mdimport ~/Library/Mail/V2
    This works (as does reindexing the entire disk)!  But only for about a half-hour to an hour, at which point Mail reverts to its previous state.  Running the command again works again, but once again the cure goes away shortly after.  Once again, the Smart Mailboxes are empty and search in Mail stops giving reslts.
    Can anyone suggest a real, permanent solution to this problem, besides switching to another email program?

    Okay, I think I understand better now.  So I just ran a test, by creating the following rule:
    I specifically chose an address (obviously not the one shown) that I had a message from in my Inbox, and a word that was present in the subject line of several messages in my Inbox.  When I ran this rule on my Inbox, it copied exactly the messages I would have expected into the test mailbox.  Are you seeing different behavior with the same rule, or is your rule constructed differently?
    If the difficulty is with running the rule, note that (as I said earlier) rules only run automatically on unread incoming messages.  It won't run automatically on existing messages or on messages on an IMAP mail server that you have read on another device using (in which case they will have been marked as read).  If you need to run this in such conditions, you'll have to either run the rule manually or run it via an AppleScript or something similar that is somehow (via something other than Mail) made to execute at certain times/intervals or under certain conditions.
    And you're correct, a smart mailbox would be totally inappropriate for what you're trying to do!  It would behave exactly as you guessed.

  • (Mail) Smart mailboxes disappeared

    I have been running a fairly comprehensive set of smart mailboxes to organise mail since August 2002. Today I noticed all my smart mailboxes have disappeared.
    Oddly enough they have disappeared on both of my user accounts on this mac, although it's only one of those user accounts where their loss would be disastrous. They may not actually have disappeared today, just merely that I noticed it today.
    I keep regular back ups of the library/mail folder, but rather than start to fiddle and experiment with replacing files from my back ups, I'm assuming someone here can tell me exactly which files from the backed up library/mail folder I should move to my actual library/mail folder. I'm guessing it will be one or more of the files in the MailData folder.
    My back ups are incremental back ups but assume the smart mailbox data is held in a single file, so I don't need to hunt down lots of files.
    This what I have in my actual library/mail folder.
    And this is what I have in a recent back up
    I'm assuming the size of the backed up SmartMailbox property list indicates all my lost data is safe, but I don't really know whether that property list is the only file I should replace.
    Thanks in advance guys.

    The same thing just happened to my smart mailboxes.  I noticed that you did not receive an answer....Did you find the file or another way to resolve this?

  • Using Mail smart mailboxes

    I know this sounds a bit silly, but how do I save messages to my smart mailboxes (an idiots guide would be helpfull)
    Thank you in advance

    Hi Stephen
    You can't actually save messages in a Smart Mailbox.
    Think of a Smart Mailbox as a view (or a filter) of all of your emails, ie your Sent, Inbox, Drafts, Trash, Junk etc.
    When you create a Smart Mailbox you set up the filters or criteria that you want to use to screen all of your mail and the emails meeting those criteria "show up" in the Smart Mailbox.
    as an example I have set one up with your name
    the parameters set would show all the email that either come from "[email protected]" or have the phrase "Smart Mailboxes" in the Subject line.
    You can add as many "rules" as you like using the + sign (or remove them ising the - sign) so the filters can be very specific.
    Remember the drop down on the second line "Any" or "All" if you set "All" the email would have to have to match all of the parameters.
    The example above would show all emails from [email protected] as well as any emails (from anyone) with the phrase "Smart Mailboxes" in the Subject line. If you chose "All" it would only show the emails from [email protected] with "Smart Mailboxes" in the Subject line.
    Hope that helps

  • Apple Mail - undo Mailbox - Use this mailbox for

    Using Apple Mail 4.5, I tried to get my mom's Trash back to a normal place.  She's using Gmail, and IMAP.  I tried doing a "Mailbox" and then Use this mailbox for and pointing it to Gmail's trash.  Now it is empty.
    What is the proper way to set up IMAP gmail with Apple Mail?

    Mail has to store those messages somewhere. Hence, the only way to “undo” those selections is to do Mailbox > Use This Mailbox For on a different mailbox or to turn OFF the corresponding Preferences > Accounts > Mailbox Behaviors > Store messages on the server setting.

  • Need Help with Mail Smart Mailboxes

    I'm just getting started with Smart Mailboxes and seem to be stuck on a key feature. Once I've set up the criteria for the mailbox and the incoming mail goes into the Smart Mailbox, how can I delete it from my inbox without losing it in the Smart Mailbox? Am I missing something here with the concept? I'm tired of moving mail into specific mailboxes and thought this might be the solution but now I'm not sure. Anyone have any suggestions on this?

    A Smart Mailbox is just a search. Messages are not "in" the Smart Mailbox, it is a list of messages that satisfy the search criteria. The messages must reside elsewhere.
    If you want to automatically move messages to regular mailboxes, use Rules, rather than Smart Mailboxes.

  • Hidden Mailbox in Apple Mail 'On My Mac'

    When changing the name of an existing Mailbox located 'On My Mac' in Apple mail the Mailbox disappeared with all its content. I tried to create a new Mailbox using the same name as the one that disappeared and I receive the following message: The mailbox "XYZ” could not be created. The mailbox “XYZ” already exists. I however cannot see "XYZ", It seems that it has been hidden somehow. Hope someone can help?

    No luck! The mailbox does not show and us still hidden!

  • How do I include sub-folders in a Smart Mailbox?

    I've set up a Smart Mailbox using the following rules (ALL) :
    1. Message is in Mailbox XXXX
    2. Subject contains YYYY
    3. Contains attachments
    But only 3 messages were found! I then realised that although I carefully selected a high-level mailbox (XXXX), it hasn't looked in the large and very complex set of sub-folders.
    Obviously, I don't want a smart mailbox for every sub-folder below XXXX. How do I force a Mail Smart Mailbox to look not only in a selected mailbox, but all its sub-folders too?

    Never mind. I worked it out for myself.
    Step 1. I created a new Smart Mailbox for any messages in mailbox XXXX, and all its lower level sub-folders, using the Match ANY rule.
    Message is in Mailbox XXXX
    Message is in Mailbox XXXX-AA
    Message is in Mailbox XXXX-BB
    Message is in Mailbox XXXX-BB-1
    Step 2. I then recreated the original Smart Mailbox (OP), but this time I stipulated
    1. Message is in Mailbox (new Smart Mailbox). Rules 2 and 3 were unchanged.
    It meant I had to create two Smart Mailboxes instead of one, and cost me ten minutes extra work, but it works. That's the main thing.

  • "On My Mac" vs "My .Mac Account" in Apple Mail

    Hello Everyone,
    Since I upgraded to Leopard this weekend, Apple Mail has been acting differently than it used to with my .Mac service.
    First of all the underlying theory behind IMAP is to keep everything in sync on the server and on the local computer.
    Apple Mail has created the following two different worlds in Apple Mail's Mailbox: "On My Mac" and "My .Mac Account".
    The "My .Mac Account" is the account I created to setup my .Mac in Mail>Preferences>Accounts. But the "On My Mac" just popped out of nowhere in the following places:
    On My Mac
    My .Mac Account
    it has also created TWO exactly identical Mailbox folders with the following headers and subheaders in the Mailbox pane on the left:
    On My Mac
    Deleted Messages (My .Mac Account)
    Drafts (My .Mac Account)
    On My Mac
    Deleted Messages (My .Mac Account)
    Drafts (My .Mac Account)
    Why it has created this in the first place and why it has created it twice nonetheless baffles me.
    I find it confusing between "On My Mac" and "My .Mac Account".
    It was much better before when in the previous Apple Mail on Tiger, we just had Inbox, Drafts, Sent, and Trash. Simple.
    I figured out how to get rid of "On My Mac" in the Trash and the two main folders it created twice, but going into preferences>accounts>mailbox behaviors and unchecking all boxes that says to store anything on the server, including drafts, and trash items.
    But by unchecking all those boxes, not everything will stay in sync between my computer and the server. If I keep them checked, I get all those "On My Mac" stuff popping up in Apple Mail.
    What is there to do? Is there a way to fix this? Thank you very much!

    Solution: Go to the User Library and search for the Containers, Apple's newest annoying "feature". Here you find the true Mail folder. Delete everything (unless you have any POP-Accounts, then this solution won't apply). Also go to the Mail folder in User Lib Preferences and delete it entirely.
    Then empty the User Caches folder to the Trash, don't empty it.
    Open System Settings, delete your iCloud account. If it cannot be deleted due to an error concerning AppleMail, leave it as is.
    Restart Mac.
    Empty Trash.
    Launch AppleMail. Create all accounts other than iCloud.
    Create iCloud Account by NOT using the template in the dialog list - do it as "other", AppleMail will recognize it and do the rest.
    Open System Settings, create your old iCloud acount again.
    Restart Mac.

  • How to Merge Eudora into Apple Mail?

    Mac OS 10.5.8 is now obsolete. So I'm planning to upgrade to Lion 10.7.x.
    Since Lion does not support Eudora, I must switch to some other email client. After many hours of research I have decided to switch to Apple Mail.
    Unfortunately, the two popular conversion applications (Emailchemy and Eudora Mailbox Cleaner) appear no longer in existence.
    Any good tips on how to merge Eudora into Apple Mail on OS 10.5.8 (so I can upgrade to Lion 10.7.x)?
    Thank you.

    Hi folks,
    I just helped someone move 350k messages from a series of Eudora archives to Apple Mail.  Anyone who says they had great luck with Apple Mail directly importing their Eudora messages is either a liar or didn't notice (or care) that their dates were all messed up. So here are some notes.
    First, Eudora Mailbox Cleaner only runs under 10.6 since it's PPC and requires Rosetta.  So you're gonna need a 10.6 or earlier mac (or virtual machine).
    Second, After running Eudora Mailbox Cleaner, you need to poke Apple Mail into rebuilding all those mailboxes.  You can go Mailbox->Rebuild for each one if you only have a handful, but an alternative is to intentionally break (aka delete) Apple Mail's mailbox cache.  You can do this by deleting/renaming the file called 'Mailboxes' (IIRC, I don't have a 10.6 mac in front of me to double check).  Next time you open Apple Mail it will rebuild all your local mailboxes.
    Third, Eudora Mailbox Cleaner will terminate if you throw it a particularly complex (or large group of mailboxes).  I assume it has something to do with the way it walks mailboxes.  You're going to want to break up any mail folder that has a number of large subfolders into multiple folders or imports. So for example, if you had the following structure:
    folder/a (big)
    folder/b (big)
    folder/c (big)
    Eudora mailbox cleaner will likely crash.  If you reparent your folder structure so it's something like this:
    This way no individual sub folder contains folders that exceed some magical threshold. I never figured out exactly how/why this happens, but if you put your big mailboxes each in their own folder, the import will usually just work.  You might also have to break up your import into smaller chunks.
    A couple other things to note, Eudora allows pretty much anything in mailbox names including ~><*%[email protected]&/\|` etc.  While most of these will continue to work fine in Apple Mail, it's in your best interest to rename them to something more normalized to steer clear of trouble.
    As for Lion, I never successfully got Lion Mail to import mailboxes created by Eudora Mailbox Cleaner properly.  Either they wouldn't show up at all or they would show up nested with two copies of the mailbox, for example MailboxQQ had messages in it as well as subfolder MailboxQQ/Messages with a duplicate copy of the mail.
    So for me, going from Eudora to Lion Apple Mail I had to do the following:
    Eudora->Eudora Mailbox Cleaner->Apple Mail (on 10.6) then copy the files over to the Lion machine and let Apple Mail (on 10.7) import the 10.6 Apple Mail Mailboxes into it's new 'V2' mailbox format.
    So good luck. A perfect migration is possible, it just takes some work.

  • A specific bug in Smart Mailbox Rules in Apple Mail on OS X Yosemite

    Steps to reproduce:
    - Define a Smart Mail Box rule as shown below in screenshot.
    - Change the value 7 to 2. So it will be 2 months.
    - Close the dialog box.
    - Right click on Smart Mailbox and select Edit Smart Mailbox. The dialog still says 7. The 2 never Saves.
    Looks like a bug in Apple Mail.

    It's already a known bug.
