    I am having this frustrating issue on Mavericks with Mail. I setup some rules to redirect mail into folders, but when I quit and restart the app it has forgotten my rules and I have to do them all over again.

    Anyone experienced this horrendously suicidal & hate inducing bug before?

    Macmail Rules lost on restart

    Same here and wondered if you ever discovered a solution ? I have an old set of rules and despite edits the old set returns after restarting the app. New rules only work whilst the app remains open.

    I tried keeping a backup of newly modified file in /user/Library/mail/V2/MailData

    and copy back in after restart ... but to no avail.
