I found following post: http://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-delete-and-manage-old-messages-in-os-x-mail/
So you have to do the following:
Add your filter that you want to apply.
Add the rule condition: Every message.
Set the drop down to "all"
You need to set "all" because if you set "any". What happens is that it evaluates every message, it will ...
In this case (April 4th, 2015) you could safely click "Connect". But in general such warnings should not be ignored. Here's how you can investigate future occurrences of such warnings:
Clicking "Show Certificate" and then selecting "Google Internet Authority G2" showed for this incident:
Google Internet Authority G2
Intermediate certificate authority
Google sent an email to those subscribed to alerts:
Google Apps for Business
Status: Service disruption
We expect to resolve the problem affecting a majority of users of Gmail at April 4, 2015 1:00:00 PM PDT. Please note that this time frame is an estimate and may change.
smtp.gmail.com is displaying an invalid certificate.

It turns out you can simply drag and drop your mail folders to a folder in Finder. This will automatically create an Mbox file, as illustrated below.
You can now simply import the Mbox file in Apple Mac by going to File > Import Mailboxes > Files in Mbox format > Continue > Select the Mbox file > Choose > Done.
Your old inbox will now be ...
I've since discovered that there is a better way. By using the "Spotlight" features you can create a single smart mailbox that filters both Mailbox and sender. Simply use the "from:" syntax with "OR", but note that you need to choose "Entire Message" not "Sender" for this syntax to work:
In short: It's a Yosemite issue which was fixed in OS X 10.11 (to be released in October).
If you have a Gmail account it is even worse.
Sequence of events:

Use RubiCode's RCDefaultApp (http://www.rubicode.com/Software/RCDefaultApp/) to configure the default handlers for different "protocols" like http:, mailto:, etc.
Not 100% positive that you can disable the protocol handler altogether, but you can definitely redirect it to something other than Mail.app.
The problem is that your flag's name was the same as a folder's name. For the shortcut to work, the flag must be unique in Mail.app's menu items. Since folder names are navigable to via the menu system, it is conflicting with your flag name.
I know you've accepted an answer, but another easier solution would have been to name your flag something like "@...
If you don't want to receive mails automatically, simply go to Mail's preferences and disable automatic downloads.
Set Check for new messages to Manually and hit the envelope symbol in the toolbar (or press ⇧⌘N) to fetch new mail.
If you want to switch this mode globally, you can create a new Automator service that runs the following shell script (drag Run ...
This problem has caused me serious issues at work.
Im now again in the process of looking for a better solution.
I've found an Add-on that seems to do the trick. Haven't yet fully testes, but seems to work as advertised:
I've found a fix that (so far) seems to be working well without too much of an inconvenience to me.
I created a "signature" named "body". In the signature "--Enter text here--" appears in the font and size I want.
When composing an email, I insert the body signature above my default signature and type my email between the -- marks (basically to make sure I ...
i share the sentiments of both those who do and don't necessarily care about email/typeface formatting.
i am personally a huge fan of apple mail, but many of the people i work with use Outlook. i hate how emails come through somewhat unprofessionally with outlook because of the incompatibilities between apple mail and outlook.
i have found a fix, in the ...
I found a solution for junk mail, at least. It is probably easily adaptable to trash, too. However, it is something you would do on gmail, so would affect on all your computers- I don't know if that is acceptable for your situation.
If you create a gmail filter with "Has the words: in:spam", you can tell gmail to mark spam messages as read, but otherwise ...
I finally found the option in Mac OS X Mail to delete a message without moving it to the trash folder:
You have to uncheck "Move deleted messages to Trash mailbox" under Preferences > Accounts > Mailbox Behaviors then the mails are directly deleted.
From Apple KB - Contacts: Export and import your contacts
Import one or more contacts (from a file other than a vCard)
You can import contact information that you saved or exported from other apps. The files can be in LDAP Interchange Format (LDIF) or text format (tab-delimited or comma-separated value (CSV)).
If you’re importing a tab-...
Apple Mail still uses IMAP and SMTP to fetch/send messages Gmail, not the Gmail RESTful API. In Mail preferences > Accounts, "IMAP" will be listed under the Gmail account.
The reason IMAP can be used even when disabled in Gmail settings is by using an OAuth token rather than a saved password. Google says this approach is "more secure" and requires the user'...
As of macOS Sierra, Mail rules are stored in ~/Library/Mail/V4/MailData/SyncedRules.plist.
High Sierra: ~/Library/Mail/V5/MailData/SyncedRules.plist
If the body of the message is the same, then the best and easiest way to do this is to just copy and paste all the addresses into the BCC field (which you may need to unhide: View → Bcc Address Field). You can just copy and paste the contents of the whole text file, and Mail will detect the addresses properly.
Doing it this way means you're only sending out ...
When you say "digitally signing", you mean that in the crypto sense, not just appending a typical "name and address" email signature to every email, right?
As an extreme measure, you could remove the public-key-certificate/private-key pair from your keychain. You could export the pair first so that you could easily re-import it if you ever wanted to sign a ...
Once you've identified a SMTP provider to use (which I can't help you with), an easy way to construct your email with separate plaintext and HTML parts would be by writing your own code for it.
Many programming languages offer support for this sort of thing; Python might be an easy choice because (a) it's probably already installed on OS X, and (b) someone ...
Psystar provided unauthorized OS X computers for a time but they were eventually shut down by Apple. OS X is contractually limited to run on Apple hardware. This means that OS X applications must run on OS X which must run on Macs. There is another project in development called Darling but that does not seek to run OS X apps on Windows but rather to run ...
I can confirm the behaviour but not explain it! I have an IMAP account set up in Mail. If I archive a message it moves the message to the Archive folder. Archiving the message again seems to delete it with no trace (although you can undo the action).
This doesn't seem like very desirable behaviour to me, maybe a bug?
There isn't an extension that does this, but there's an easy workaround which does what you want:
With a message selected press Ctrl-A to select all messages. The right hand pane then displays all the messages selected, with a summary of their content. (From here you can simply click on a message's subject to go to it).
Create an Automatic Reply Message
Adding an automatic reply with OS X Mail is easy. Mail must be running for rules to apply for new messages and Mail preferences must be set to check mail automatically or periodically.
To create an automated email response, select Mail->Preferences... from the menu bar and click the Rules tab.
Click the Add Rule button, ...
There's nothing wrong with Mac OS X. It is correctly reporting that the server's certificate has expired, because the server is indeed sending an expired certificate.
but now Mac Mail is not updating the certificate although the certificate is renewed. Which I can see when I open strongstaff.de in Firefox and view the certificate information
You're looking ...
Okay... I've got a workable solution:
Longtime Mail.app users may remember the "ReplyWithHeaders" plugin that was abandoned years ago. Well, it's been resurrected and then abandoned again, but at the time of this writing works for OS X 10.8.4 and can be obtained here:
And if you've got a version of "...
