    I downloaded El Capitan and then went to the Mail Program. At least one full day of messages was missing.

    Consider yourself lucky. I lost an inbox from my pop3 account containing tens of thousands of messages. Just gone. No dialogue box promising that it's updating my mailbox to the latest standards-- no nothing. Just 1.3 GB-- gone.

    It's on my hard drive, and probably on my time machine drive, but the absense irks me.
    Lots of strange errors in my console having to do with mds.

    Got them back after following instructions here..

    I had to toss the
    /Users/<username>/Library/Mail/V3/MailData/Envelope Index; a quick rebuild did not work.

    Anyway, my messages seem to be back.

    Note that if you use IMAP, this will mean that every message will be redownloaded-- if you use POP, they'll be reindexed from your local storage

    I've got 99% of the messages back ( I think). Even though a fresh time machine back up was run late on the 28th sept, My sent mails only go up to mid August. I can live with that as I have the mails that came IN right up to the point of back up :D

    Apple.......If you're reading......SORT it out !!!!!
