    I'm trying to restore my mail folder from a backup, however when I copy the folder over, the sub folders have little red circles with minus sign on them.

    I tried to change the permissions via the GUI, but nothing. When I open up mail, the folders aren't seen (although I can search for messages and find them!).

    Any suggestions? Anyone ever seen this?

    Where is the backup stored? Do the folders have the marks when they're still in the backup folder or when they get put into the Library folder? Assuming you're using Mail, have you tried using the Import Mailboxes feature from the File menu? What backup app or method are you using? :)
