Currently Being ModeratedJan 15, 2011 11:15 AM (in response to BW Lee)try to create a new mailbox, can you select the location "on my mac" when creating it? if so create it, and when created, does it bring back the "on my mac" header?
also, for duplicate headers, what works to get rid of them is to move headers up or down the header tree, so i would also try that with other headers to see if that makes the "on my mac" header reappear.
if none of the above works, i would do other basics such as quit mail, shut down, then reboot, launch mail... and also trash/delete the com.apple.mail.plist file located in homefolder/library/mail - of course when you do that you will have to recreate your email accounts and settings.

Currently Being ModeratedJan 15, 2011 11:16 AM (in response to Pascal Bouvier)I've added new mailboxes that allow me to select 'On My Mac' for the location but that doesn't bring back the header.
Trashing the .plist file didn't work either.
What I finally got to work for now is to add an RSS feed. Somehow that causes all those folders to be under 'On My Mac' once again. Weird though, because I know I got rid of all my RSS feeds before and the 'On My Mac' header was still there for months.
Anyway, thanks for your thoughts. Who knows what this is all about. I'm going to keep playing around with it. It's not a huge deal, I just got used to that column being uncluttered.2.4 15" MPB, 2.2 15" MBP, 15 gb iPod 3G, iPod Shuffle, Mac OS X (10.4.6)
