Mail Archive is duplicating folders on occasion

I have see repeat odd behavior a couple of times (even different versions) where I can archive email from Apple Mail to a database (named Mails, in my case) and sometimes it creates another “Apple Mail” group and archives new mail in that new group with the same sub-group for mailbox folders.

I just copy the ‘new’ email items to the previous set of folders. That may be a problem, I have not used a duplicates smart group.

Is this a known issue and is there a fix?


No. It’s the first I’ve seen.

Is it in any way consistently reproducible?

Actually, I may have a deeper problem. DEVONthink 3 will not open any databases on launch. I am going to remove and reinstall DEVONthink 3 and see if that clears up the open database problem before followup on the mail issue.


Ok. Let me know what you find.
