I was sending an email when I noticed my Outbox, which usually holds outgoing messages until they're sent, is absent. If I select the menu Mailbox > Go To, "Out" is greyed out. It's just not there.

However, in ~Library/Mail/Mailboxes, there is a folder labeled Outbox.mbox. If I quit Mail and drag it to the desktop, then restart Mail, it rebuilds the Outbox.mbox folder, but the Outbox still doesn't appear in the Mail message viewer.

I tried rebuilding all mailboxes. Didn't work. Dragged ~Library/Caches/Mail to the desktop, no difference. Then tried dragging Envelope Index file to the desktop. Mail imported all the messages but Outbox still isn't there.

I'm beginning to think it never was there... did I imagine it?
