Mail and imported mail in mail app
I imported my email from an iMac g5 to a MacBook Pro running Leopard. I now
have an inbox, sent box, Trash, and underneath that a set of folders I'd
created in Mail on the iMac for various mail stuff.
Under that is a gmail heading (all my mail comes to Mail app from Gmail),
and under that another inbox, sent box.
Is there a way to meld these two inboxes? Last time I looked, a new mail
coming in showed up in both places, requiring me to select each in turn.

I've decided there are a couple things with Mail.app I'd really like to
change in OS X 10.3.9. First, is there any way to assign an alias to an
email address, similar to the way it's done on Yahoo? At the moment,
Mail.app can suggest by reading from the email address field in Address
Book, or the Name field. I'd like to add a simple alias in addition for
popular recipients. Any way to do this? Secondly, I have around three

I lost some mail today. I had dragged a couple of folders to a new
location. When I looked in the folders, it appeared the mail was there
but everything was empty. I tried rebuilding the folders and the
headers disappeared as well. At that point I was pretty desperate.
Most of the mail was from today and would not be on my backup.
I restarted the computer and rebuilt the folders again. Low-and-behold,
most of the mail came back but not all of it and I am still missing a

Not sure if it's what your asking, but the Address Book application
allows you to create mailing lists, and there's lots of information in
the Address Book Help file. Once you've created the list, you can
select it and use it in the Mail application.

Here is a script I wrote for vacation notices; it will send the notice

The actual notice is sent by the rule; the script is what keeps the rule
from sending more than one notice to any given address.

Run App...mail.app does not fetch mail
For the last four days mail.app has refused to fetch any mail from my
pop account. As far as I know, I have made no changes to my system or
the mail app. I know I have new mail because I can access my mail via
pine on the shell account at the isp.
Mail tries, it logs on, checks password successfully, then spends a
little too long on "checking for messages" and finds none.
I've not tried any other methods of checking my email as none of the

The Mac's on board mail client, why is the text size so small on some

an impact although I would have thought that Mac Mail would have over-ridden

If I change the rules in Mail.app for junk mail to move the message to a

If this can't be done with Mail.app, can one recommend another good

That's a very handy feature that I couldn't live without.
Have you tried this to see if it does what you want?:
1. Creating a new message.
2. Dragging another message into it.

Microsoft Entourage does it. Despite the name, it's one of the best
email clients on Mac OS X, believe it or not.

which end it's on. As far as I can tell, I set both accounts up the
same on our Web host (an external service, not run by us), and I've set
both mail.app accounts up the same.
How do I troubleshoot this?
