    If you think that a few posts from a Tech Support site represents the actual state of things more power to you.

     

    The fact that your machines need permissions repairs so frequently suggests deeper issues, and get rid of Onyx, it can and will cause more issues than it solves. The fact that all your machines have Onyx, and problems, whereas none of mine have either is compelling enough.

    I use Onyx since 10 years without any problem. All my 5 machines are working quite well and have no issues.

    You should read what I write and not what you'd like to read : I repair permissions twice a week. That doesn't mean it's needed. Last time I checked running permissions yielded two minor  repairs on each machine.

    Don't change a thing then, and now we are done.

    Are you here to help or to sneer ?

    And as there are no issues I advise you not to change a thing, what is the problem with that advice, advice that you do not have to heed if you choose not to.

    Hi Thomas, I just read your message where you explain how to find com.apple.mail.plist.... and it solved one of my questions... I'm trying to move all my mail from my old mac to my new mac, and I already found and copied the mail folder, so my question is if I have to also copy the com.apple.mail.plist so as to have all my old accounts working (which apparently is so...).  But as you mention, since they moved the file, I´m not sure if I only have to copy the com.apple.mail.plist (which I also found after your explanation), and if so, where should I put it in my new mac.. or if I have to copy the whole com.apple.mail/Data/.... folder...

    Thanks!

    But why, oh, why can't Apple just put in a toogle switch in Mail? Now you have to "break in" to a hidden directory, know what Container means AND download another program (Pref Setter) to solve it. My mom sure couldn't do this ...

    Thomas can´t find  com.apple.mail files any where, nor in the library nor in the preferences.... and Mail still says can´t be openes because it seems damaged or corrupted. Already restred the software...

     

    what else could I do. Is there any way I can dounload a com.apple.mail file to place in my labrary and then name it a old so I can create a new one...

    Transferring my data to a new macbook air today, and mail from the last three months transferred over, but nothing else came over.  No folders, no older e-mails from my files.

     

    I found the mail folder, but cannot for the life of me find the com.apple.mail files.  Not in the missing libraries folder in my hard drive, and not in the Containers folder. Anyone else have any other ideas where I can look?  I used spotlight to no avail.

     

    Perhaps more importantly, what will happen if I copy over the mail folder put not the plist file?

    Apple Migration Assistant from Mavericks to Yosemite failed horribly!  Luckily, with your post, my 20GB of email and 8 email accounts were all put back the way they were, thank you SO MUCH for taking the time to help us!

    I went to prefs accounts advanced and click 'auto...settings' and now it works.

    Many thanks - this is the correct answer for 10.8.5 - it's right in 'Containers' folder right where you said and not in the scroll down list of prefs - thanks!!
