Don't show this again. Computers Rebuild mailboxes to fix incorrect handling of Mail messages in OS X A simple rebuild of mailboxes can fix message handling problems. Some of these behaviors include: Deleted messages reappear -- If you remove a message from your inbox, either by deleting or moving it to a new mailbox, then it should disappear. However, it may stubbornly show up in your inbox again, sometimes after quitting and relaunching Mail, or when switching back and forth between mailboxes.

All replies

Message "cannot be found" errors -- When attempting to move or delete messages, you may see a warning that the message cannot be found. Blank mail messages -- If you locate some messages and attempt to view them, either by clicking or double-clicking, Mail will only show you a blank message, with no content, header, or other information on it.

Incorrect message counts -- Mailboxes may show incorrect numbers of total messages, or incorrectly report the number of unread messages even if the total is correct. The Rebuild option is available at the bottom of the Mailbox menu, once you have selected at least one mailbox.
