    El Capitan
    I recently upgraded from Yosemite to El Capitain, but now the Apple mail app keeps flashing that it is "upgrading mail" and the only way out is to force quit the application----any ideas how to correct this----otherwise the Mac works fine----just have to use another mail service. Thanks for any advice.

    Specs:
    iMac, i7 4GHz, 32GB memory, 1TB Flash Storage, OS X.12.4.
    Have you upgraded to X.11.1 as there are a number of Mail fixes in that update. Using POP or IMAP?

    All of a sudden my "send" arrow is grayed out and I can't send an email out. What could have happened? Thanks.

    Go into Mail's preferences and check out the account settings. Is the sending configuration correct (server, password, etc).

    My mail preferences are OK - I'm just having trouble seeing the side bar. (*_*)

    Not sure what that means. Can you explain a bit more?

    I was curious myself.

    And I wonder if we'll ever know.

    When I open Mail, the sidebar is often missing.

    Do you have a proper address entered in the To: ______ and a Subject entered in the Subject: _____ and some text in the Message area…?

    For your "sidebar" problem, check your View(menu) options, like maybe show/hide Mailbox list view…???

    There are no show/hide options under view. I just opened Mail again and was clicking the icons when I enlarged it. Using the Escape button did not return it to normal size, and at the extended size, it shows no toolbar as well. I'm just going to access my mail accounts from Safari. It's too aggravating. Thanks again.

    I'm sorry that didn't work, but I haven't bothered going to El Capitain yet and I mistakenly thought they might have kept the view setup to Mavericks or something earlier than El Capitain that worked. How silly of me to have made such a logical assumption!!!
