    OSX mail inbox's
    Hi,

    I have several email accounts in my mac mail.

    All of my emails go into their respective mail sub inbox's', but also show in the main inbox at the top. Apart from one account, where it only shows in the sub inbox, not the main one at the top.

    Is ther any way I can get this email account to behave the same and show in both?

    Thanks.

    1. Which version of OSX do you have?
    2. Are all your accounts POP, IMAP or are they a selection of both?
    3. Is each account from the same provider or different.
    4. Which provider does the troublesome account come from?
    5. Is this new behaviour? Did it work ok in the past? or have you only just added these accounts to Mail?
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    If that wast checked wouldn't it mean I wouldn't get the message at all?

    The messages come into the sub mailbox, but not into the main one called inbox at the top where all the messages from the other accounts go to, so I don't have to check each inbox individually for new messages.

    Thanks

    Have you tried dragging the mailbox onto the Inbox folder?
