The title says it all. I tried rebuilding the mailbox, and it got worse. When you click on the black title bar, it looks normal and highlighted, the piece of email opens fine, they are all in the sent mail box.

In Mail's Preferences -> Viewing tab, under Message threading, is the Highlight related messages using color checkbox checked? And if so, is the View menu's Organize by Thread command checked?

In Prefs under the Viewing tab, the message threading is checked and the color is light blue. In the view menu outside prefs, the organize by thread is grayed out.

BTW, when you click on the black bars they highlight to the darker blue highlight color as do related pieces of mail and can be read. The black barred pieces are unrelated to each other, seem quite random.

Edit: Sorry, related ones light blue, highlighted one dark blue.

I found out how to get rid of it although it remains a mystery why it happened. I highlight them, go to format>show colors and select white crayon.

?????????????????

FYI, For some reason, they stayed correct even after a rebuild, but some of them come up with yellow type when they come up in a search. Voodoo.
