Hi guys,


I really need you help!


About half an hour ago I went to check mail and all of my Inbox messages are gone. There were 200 of them. Very important ones.


Gone from Mac, iPhone, iPad, iCloud, everywhere. For a second on the iPad I was able to spot some strange unread messages with no content dated 1.1.1970. ? Then - everything disappeared.


The only thing I did prior to this was the latest Security update that I installed about two hours ago.


Please don't tell me it's all gone forever.



All the other mailboxes are perfectly fine. All messages are there. Only Inbox was affected.



Please help!

    For a start try highlighting the inbox, from the mail menu try going to Mailbox and click rebuild.
