    Hi everyone.

    A bit frustrated. Before I got myself Lion, I was able to search through my old emails (in Mail). I had messages from like 2008 - 2009. I cannot seem to be able to see those messages anymore... when I use the search (from: or whatever), it displays messages from no longer than December, 2010.

    Can you please advice? Thank you so much...

    Maybe you/it deleted all of your sent/deleted mail. That way it wouldn't be there any more so you couldn't find it?! Hope this helps...no idea how to solve it, though!:apple:

    They are stored physically on ~/Library/Mail

    That folder is hidden so you will need to use CMD+SHFT+G and type that in. You will see all your mail and folders listed.
