I have a Leopard desktop 10.5.8 and I have trouble with my Email Apple MAIL draft folder. First of all after I typed my draft and sent to draft, the folder would not open at a later date to send. In all I have 10 messages, mainly test which I cannot delete from my Draft folder.

My draft system is now working but I cannot get rid of the  10 messages which sit in my INBOX and DRAFT folders.

These messages appear in Application - Mail but they will not go.

How do I delete, or is it best to use My Disc 1# and delete all my software and replace with the Disc in order to have a new MAIL program?

Any advice would be welcome.

iMac 7.1 Intel Duo 2GHZ Leopard Desktop, Mac OS X (10.5.1), 250 H/D 1Gb Ram

    Not certain, but this can fix myriad Mail problems...


    Safe Boot from the HD, (holding Shift key down at bootup),  it will try to repair your Disk Directory while the spinning radian is happening, so let it go, run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions, then move this folder & file to the Desktop.


    Move this Folder to the Desktop...




    Move this file to the Desktop...


    /Users/YourUserName/Library/Mail/Envelope Index




    If that doesn't do it and you can afford to redo all your Rules, try these & reboot...






    Note, in 10.5 & up /Users/YourUserName/Library/Caches/Mail/ may or may not exist.

    Safari FAILS to load hotmail. Even a new account! Safari crashes on almost every log out then takes 4 minutes to reconnect after each crash.


    Firefox has no such issues.


    Is this a browser war going on between them and the telecom service provider? Very odd to me.


    I thought Safari was bullet proof????


    I opened a question a while ago and NO issues have been resolved. I've reported several dozen errors to Apple with no response or clue as to how to remedy ANY of them.


    Is Apple missing Jobs? Is Safari weakening?

    Possibly the worst browser you could use, but great for Apple tracking all you do.

    I've reported several dozen errors to Apple with no response or clue as to how to remedy ANY of them.

    Did you submit the error report to ther Round File?


    Jst submitted this to MS...


    Outlook is a worse interface, possibly the worst interface I've seen, & not very compatible.
