Apple Mail E-Mail Import

Getting alot of errors when importing e-mail from Apple’s Mail.

8:50:38 AM: Error importing message Subject of Message' fromSenders Name’at 2006-10-16 19:40:42 -0500 *** -[NSCFString count]: selector not recognized [self = 0x163fd560]

Anyone know how to fix this.


I am getting a lot of different error

Error importing message Handmark Software Order' fromHandmark>’ at 2006-03-01 13:35:44 -0500 *** -[NSCFString appendString:]: nil argument

This is some intermittent error that seems to occur. It would help if you could send us one of those messages. In Mail, select that message and do a “Save As…”, then select “Raw Source”. You can send it to

This would help me to find out what’s so special about that message that it triggers this problem.


Update The “-[NSCFString count]: selector not recognized” problem has been reproduced and will be fixed in the next release (kudos to Scott Morrison of MailTag fame!).

I had sent an email with raw source of my message.
Hope this helps.
