    Ok, heres an update on something I did just after posting this, I imported everything from mail to entourage (which I never used) and everything is fine, so why is mail not showing my older emails properly...
    Can you re-import from that?

    Seriously, if there's anything you'd miss on your Mac, backup. I've had two primary harddrives fail on me spontaneously in about 5 years. Not too bad considering how much I use my computers but my backups saved me both times.

    Well, here is what I did before, I imported all the email from Mail into entourage and it seemed fine in entourage, all the mail was there and readable.

    While looking for answers I decided to use the rebuild command in Mail and all those blank emails disappeared from Mail completely, afterward I opened entourage and those same email were gone from there also, how the two are related I have no idea and other than importing I figure'd all the mail was in a pst file or something in entourage and totally seperate from mail, how would running rebuild effect the emails in entourage too??

    It just seems totally F$ked up.

    Bottom line is something got screwed up big time and my lost emails are nowhere to be found.
    Once you go Mac, you'll never go back.

    Are you sure your account isn't IMAP?

    Seeing as how both apps are messed up, I sure does sound as though this is a server-side issue.

    Yeah, I'm usually a Windows user so I'm not used to things messing up like this.

    But you're right, when using MacOS you really want a backup.

    I just tried importing from Apple Mail to Entourage. But no mails got imported, only account settings etc. So I tried to export my mails from Apple Mail as .mbox and then import to Entourage. It worked, but I only got todays and yesterdays mails. So I guess im out of luck even though I can still see all my mails in Apple Mail. Just can't read them.

    I know Mail is using POP. I am 100% sure.

    While I don't know how big my mailbox was I doubt it was very large, I have users at work with mailboxes close to 2Gb on our server and they are a LOT more email than I have so I don't think mailbox size has anything to do with it and my HD has plenty of space also.

    When I get home tonight I'll check some things out again however I am not very hopeful I will ever see these emails again. I think I am just going to have to let the computer win this round.

    Thanks for all the help anyways guys.
