10.4: A possible fix for missing imported Mail messages
Authored by: earth23 on May 05, '05 04:12:51PM

I found a solution where you don't have to reimport the mail (takes forever): Like some of the other articles mention the emails aren't deleted, they're just not readable for some reason. After poking around in the Mail prefs folder I found the imported emails in a folder with a strange name, "Local-(null)@(null)". I opened up mail.app and created a new mailbox folder, found where the new folder was located and moved all of the imported mail files in Local-(null)@(null) into the directory with the new mailbox folder I had just created. This solved the problem.
