    Hi there,

    I've used mac now for almost a year and I'm loving every bit of it!

    I do have one problem though with mail - I've stored all my important emails, but if I now go back, some of them are completely blank - I can't see the content of the mail, the email is just completely empty... This is not hte case for all old emails, but only for certain emails...

    Any ideas what this could be?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Download Onyx and run the rebuild mail envelope index automation. It should fix that very issue.

    Thanks, unfortunately it didnt solve the problem... Do I need to activate some special setting in Onyx before I execute or?

    Did you use Time Machine and Leopard recently? I had the same problem when I restored my backup from an unpatched Leopard backup. Never was able to recover the emails.
