    Mails disappearing from Mac Mail

    I use Apple Mail to manage for my Gmail account. Today I found, the emails that had arrived this month are all vanished. I checked my trash, my junk folder to no results. How can I get them back?

    Hi Derek,
    have you checked all your Mail folders? Like, there are labels and other related folders.
    Can you please check if there is some kind of filter being applied on your inbox. You can check them under the Rules at Apple Mail preferences.
    Hope that helps.

    Thanks, I opened my Rules section. There was no such rule to delete or remove my emails. The only ones that suffered the disaster were the emails that were from Newsletter from various subscribed websites. I don't find any reasons as to why are they deleted. Is it possible to get them back, anyhow?

    maybe you should talk to the Gmail support in that case. For further measures:

    Thanks for the links. I am trying Mail Backup X now. I hope that saves me from any further accidents.

    Can you see the emails if you log on to GMail via a browser?

    Sorry for a delayed response JezzerP.
    The mails are not in my Gmail Account as well. I had checked them on the very same day to failure. I had checked my Trash.
    I had the account saved in my IPad as well. I had removed them from there mistakenly. No way shall I blame Google for the same. I realised it was the mistake on my side itself.
