I have suddenly lost my Leopard mail from my iMac. I cannot find a mail file in the applications folder or on my backup disc (usually get our old friend error 10657). when I can open the mail file it only contains a text file. There was a recent post in CNET suggesting that the problem with the mail could be solved by asking some one using Mac OSXv10.5 to e mail a copy of the mail.app. file. Has anyone tried this? Anyone willing to Email a clean copy of the application so I can give it a try
I am afraid i gave in and found an Apple repair company. They sorted it out at a high cost but I cannot function with all my interests without a machine that I can trust. The engineer said he found my E mail in the waste bin. No idea how it got there or how I could recover it. I had look at the contents of this bin several times and never saw anything resembling mail.

It seems that the dbx file size is reduced either because: 1. The repair tool modify and reduce its size, remove the emails. or 2. The last time when you restart Outlook Express, it reduce the dbx file size and remove the emails. If you still have the original large dbx file, then you can recover all the emails inside it with OE-Mail Recovery at http://www.oemailrecovery.com/inbox-repair.html
This tool will never modify the original dbx file, instead, it will output the recovered emails into an output folder so that you can either open or import it back to Outlook Express. If you do not have the original large dbx file, then it is still possible to recover your emails. As long as you have stored the .dbx file on your local disk or drive, the email data may still exist on your disk/drive. You can you can search Google utility to scan the whole disk/drive and recover the emails for you.
DBX files (files with *.dbx extension) are the files where Outlook Express stores email messages.They can be found in so-called Outlook Express Store Folder named"Inbox.dbx," "Sent Items.dbx," etc. To determine Store Folder locationclick Store Folder button at Tools>Options>Maintenance in OutlookExpress. DBX files may be copied to another folder in order to backup e-mail messages.
How to open and edit DBX files To open Outlook Express dbx files you just should select a file anddouble-click on it. The software will be open a .dbx file, scan dbxfile and visualize e-mails. How to extract emails from DBX files It is almost impossible to extract DBX files manually. However,there are tons of DBX extracting software over the Internet, such as DBX to EML.

Hi, it seems like you are using IMAP protocol for your mail settings. The good thing about IMAP is that you can see the same emails listing for your imac, and your macbook. The bad thing about IMAP is that when you accidentaly delete emails on whatever computer, the others won't see them either.
Please check in Mail's trash folders for all your computers, and check if the mails were not simply moved to another folder
I got error code 10657 when I tried to open a file in Finder on the external drive that I had used for a Time Machine backup before I reformatted the hard drive of my MacBook. When I started Time Machine on the MacBook (with Leopard reinstalled) and went to the backup date that held the desired file, I was told that I needed to recreate the containing folder (or choose another location for the restore). I chose recreate the folder, and the restored file was available in the new folder without any further problem.
