It is extremely annoying. I expected that all my mail would be downloaded then I could go offline and read them but I haven't found that to be universally true. It looks like there is either a size threshold or formatting (ie HTML). Sometimes these messages have to be recovered from the server each time they are accessed (or so it appears, unscientifically).Has anyone come up with a solution for the "Message has not been downloaded" message in Mail? It is really annoying. Thanks.
Not quite that simple. I get it on both pop3 accounts and it does it no matter how it is setup and regardless of whether it is previously downloaded to other client or not.This only happens if your mail is downloader from the server onto your desktop or other mail client.
Used to happen to me all the time. I changed my prefs to leave a copy of the email on the server for 24 hours. Problem solved.
