    As Fred says, its greyed out.

    Hi Fred,

    Yes that works but in my case only temporarily. Come and tell us if it does the same to you.

    It's no coincidence that Outlook is the best Exchange client out there, but your experience with Mail is not typical, post back if the re-made account starts misbehaving

    Thx Nick,


    Will do

  • Nicholas Dring Level 1 (15 points)

    I've tried every now and then to use outlook, but in the end I get fustrated and end up going back to mail, which is perfect either...

    One last note, i have three mac's, two mbp's and a mac pro.

    The only one that has this issue is the mac pro, which was upgraded to Lion through using the lion updater app.

    The others were installed a fresh on newly formatted drives.

    Hi Fred


    Just FYI, I use Apple Mail with multiple Exchange Servers, mainly Exchange 2010 and 2007, when confronted with a 2003 Exchange server I use DavMail to connect it to Apple Mail. I have no issues at all connecting to Exchange servers.

    This really, really, really s---ks!! Just sent some very, very important emails and now they are NOT seen at all in my sent mails in Apple Mail.


    Something is terribly WRONG on Apple Mail.


    What really, really, really s--ks is that I go to Ootlook 2011 and the sent emails and a very good search process are all there.


    I WANT to use Apple Mail, but I cannot properly use it.


    Come one Apple!!! Your most loyal users are ticked off that Apple Mail is still JV software...please, please, please listen to use.


    p.s. yes I have sent this to "feedback"

  • Nicholas Dring Level 1 (15 points)

    I deleted one of my exchange accounts from the settings on the 10th. Its still showing the sent items folder as I write. I'd done this before to try to fix it but a few days afterwards it disappeared again.

    The only difference this time was that on the 10th I also ran a permissions repair, thinking maybe it was a permissions issue.

    Fingers crossed it remains. I'm going to delete/add my other exchange accounts now, hopefully they'll be ok too.

  • Nicholas Dring Level 1 (15 points)

    Yeah 2003 exchange didn't play nice with mail. I always used pop in those cases. Our institute moved to exchange 2007 a year ago which made things much better.

    Do You think the Zookeeper's Update of Lion to 10.7.1 will help improve the very bad Apple Mail's search and sent files being so lost?

  • petitsuix Level 1 (10 points)

    Solution provided by my phone call with Apple was to close Mail then go to Library/Preferences and delete the and I actually solved the problem beautifully.


    Hope this helps as well as it did for me



  • Fred Davenport Level 1 (0 points)

    Thx Much Petit,


    Are you using 10.7? Finding the Library/Preferences can be a real adventure in 10.7.


    Will give this a try.

  • Fred Davenport Level 1 (0 points)

    Thx Nich,


    I think I got my sent mails back, now I cannot see ANY of my Trash/Deleted emails anymore.


    Something is not right with 10.7.

  • Fred Davenport Level 1 (0 points)

    I give up!!!!


    10.7 Mail Stnks and I mean stinks.


    After two weeks of using Mail, I know cannot see my sent files, cannot see my deleted trash files.


    Way too much going on on campus this time of year to have Mail be sooo terribly bad at the worse time of the year.


    Hope the Zookeeprs know how much they having really hurt and annoyed us with this bad, very bad Mail appl in Lion.


    I hate to do this, But I MUST go back to Outlook 2011.


    Yup and I am now using a brand new MacBook Pro, and the same thing is happening that happened on my previous MBP.


    Very, Very, Very disappointing

    Apple Mil and Outlook 2011 use the same methods to connect to the server, check your setup in Apple Mail.
