Apple Mail: rebuild mailboxes to fix bugs

If you encounter any worries about the mails marked with a flag (incorrect color, unmarked messages, false counters), you will be manipulated to rebuild the index of your various mailboxes. The procedure remains very simple and solves flag problems as I have experienced personally on many occasions.

Close all Apple Mail instances and click the Finder icon.

In the menu Go then Go to the file... enter: ~/Library/mail/V2/MailData

Click Go to confirm.

Delete files starting with Envelope by saving them beforehand in another file by security.

Run Apple Mail and wait for the software to regenerate mailboxes correctly.

Once the process is complete, mails marked with a flag should be displayed again in good order.
