Some emails vanished from my inbox. The messages still appear in the Mail Viewer but when I click on them, there is nothing, no message or anything.

Where are those emails ?

    Not certain, but this can fix myriad Mail problems...

     

    Safe Boot from the HD, (holding Shift key down at bootup),  it will try to repair your Disk Directory while the spinning radian is happening, so let it go, run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions, then move these folder & file to the Desktop.

     

    Move this Folder to the Desktop...

     

    /Users/YourUserName/Library/Caches/Mail/

     

    Move this file to the Desktop...

     

    /Users/YourUserName/Library/Mail/Envelope Index

     

    Reboot.

    Hmmm, when you highlight them do any contents show below it?

    Open this path and find a box with .emlx files in it, drag one to Text Edit, does it show up there?

     

    Installed any new Fonts?

     

    If so, try Mail>Preferences>Fonts & Colors & changing the Font(s) used, and restart Mail.

    I am experiencing this same problem. Mail not showing up in window. How did you fix your problem?

    Welcome!

     

    Please understand I'm trying to help you get help faster. Mining up two-year old posts and tagging on doesn't often get you help around here. It is always best in these forums to start your own topic. For your Mail question, find out what Mac OS version you have by doing "About this Mac" and post in the forum for your OS version from this list:

     

    OS X v10.8 Mountain Lion

     

    Mac OS X v10.7 Lion

     

    Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard

     

    Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard

     

    When you post, be sure to post as much info about your Mac as possible, to save helpers having to ask you a question before they can answer yours. Note my equipment line below for an example. Think of it as the same as calling your car dealer's service department when you have a problem. The first thing the mechanic will ask is, "What make? What model?"

    iMac 27-in; Mid 2010 2.93G i7 Quad, Mac OS X (10.6.8), 12GB RAM; ATI5750 1G VRAM
