My wife accidentally deleted all the files in her Sent mailbox in Mail on her MacMini OS 10.5.8. No problems I told her and immediately restored an appropriate Sent messages folder off Time Machine and, unsurprisingly, the "lost" files were replaced/restored onto the computer. laugh
However, the files have not appeared in the Sent mailbox in Mail. frown
Any suggestions anyone?
Regards. Mike

Try rebuilding the Sent mailbox from the Mailbox menu.

Thanks for your ultra quick reply.
I will commit this to memory - in other words I will make a note of it - for future reference, as I (we) "somehow" sorted out the problem to my wife's satisfaction (is that an oxymoron blush). So I can't actually try out your suggestion now, but, I certainly appreciate your response.
Regards. Mike
