I accidentally clicked "Rebuild" this morning. I've had email **** ever since. Thanks, Apple, for such a neat tool!

 

I posted another thread about it. No one has helped.

 

The long'n'short seems to be that I still have all my mail -- it's all in my various mail folders in my Library folder. But I have no Sent mail displaying in Mail. I can SEARCH for and find some recent sent mail. (A search will sometimes also deliver many nonmatches, oddly.) My Draft emails all display but if I click on any there's no there there -- no text or contents.

 

My Mail is outta whack. How to get Mail to show the contents of my Library folders again?

 

Thanks, JP

    Hi, all I can say is, if everything else is right, Rebuild should not lose any eMail, it's always worked here.

    I wonder, maybe move them all, out delete the folder, creaet the folder with one send, & import once again?

    I really think at this point, the scxript is the best option, you have Mail backups right?
