  1. Quit and Restart worked! Thanks for a simple and quick fix. I also read the other solutions – I like the step-by-step simple explanations. Thankfully, I didn’t have to use them.

  2. Re-indexing was the step that fixed my mail search. I tried all the others first. Thanks for your help.

  3. My Mac will no longer search my mail (multiple mailboxes) or history. Spotlight search works. Cannot find a fix for that issue. Don’t want to rebuild mailboxes. Tried SMC a few times, only works temporarily.

  4. My Spotlight is working fine. My mail has been an issue for a long time. Apple told me to reset the SMC. I have done this a few times, and sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn’t. When I search mail on my Mac it doesn’t find anything I am searching for, even simple senders whom I get daily emails from. I am concerned that constantly resetting the SMC is not good for my Mac. I need this to work. Do not want to rebuild my emails. Years ago, I lost 40,000 emails from doing that, following a techs step-by-step, live. Won’t do it again.
