Currently Being ModeratedOct 15, 2010 8:58 AM (in response to Kepplitt)Nope! In fact it's worse. I synced my iphone with my mail and now my iphone shows that I have new messages like before, but all the messages are blank when i open them. I can only read the first few words on the preview before I open the message.MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 22, 2010 7:15 AM (in response to summer14)I'm having the same problem and it's impacting my ability to response to time sensitive emails, regarding an international MBA program I am attending.
Does anyone know of a solution for this problem? Am I not receiving emails, or are they just not displaying? How can I make them display?
Thanks in advance.

Currently Being ModeratedNov 22, 2010 5:30 PM (in response to dfj138)Now I am having a similar problem. I am hearing the "new mail" sound but nothing shows. This is especially true with emails I send addressed to my own email address (I do that when sending group emails, bcc everyone else.)
It is disconcerting.
I look forward to hearing more about how to fix it!g4, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Currently Being ModeratedDec 23, 2010 5:19 PM (in response to macprob)I was having the exact same problem this is how I fixed it hope it works for you. Go to Home>Library>Preferences>
find and move the com.apple.mail.plist file to the Desktop, relaunch Mail, and reset the account.
Mine is now working fine again.
Currently Being ModeratedMar 9, 2011 12:23 AM (in response to polzbert)an here is what I did to "solve" my problem:
copy ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.mail.plist to Desktop
(ii) enter Timemachine and take a copy of ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.mail.plist that worked
(iii) after starting Mail, it will tell you that the Library has to be fixed - which solved the problem for me

summer14, In case you haven't resolved this yet.
polzbert's solustion is excellent, assuming you have a backup drive using Time Machine. However, did you try rebuilding the inbox? If not, here's how:
Select the mail box that's giving you trouble in the left pane of Apple Mail. Then choose "rebuild" iunder the Mailbox Menu Item. This has resolved countless mailbox glitches for me in the past.

Wow, thank you Charles! Your rebuild has fixed my problem which was a little different from the above. I too was having the issue on my laptop where I had notice that there were new messages but none appeared in the inbox.

I tried similar solutions to no effect with an identical problem. I then did a full restore from Time Machine of my entire system back a few days to before this problem. Guess what? Problem was still there. Crazy! My iPhone 4 and iPad 2 retrieved my email fine. I used Get Info in the Mac mailbox that did not display. I saw there was a message from an "unknown user." I used the web interface on my email and I deleted a block of messages including that one. I started Mail up and it immediately began to work again. There appears to be some way that an email can be corrupted on the server and cause this problem on Mac Mail although not on the IOS devices. Anyway, if all else fails, try to see if you have a corrupted email message on your server.

I had this problem and it was fixed with a call to Apple this way (which resets the Mail app and forces it to reload all data):
Double click on home button at bottom of ipad screen - this brings up a bar of apps at the bottom
Press Mail ap until it start to jiggle
Press cross on this ap to delete it
Press Home button again to go back to normal home screen and press Mail again
For me, that fixed the problem
