Mac Mail – deleting an email address from Mac Mail

Tip

For those using Mac Mail, please be careful when deleting an old email address – it will permanently delete ALL the emails associated with it. The best thing to do is simply to keep the email address in the system but render it inactive.

If you do delete the email accidentally and you do not have a backup in place like Time Machine or Carbonite, you will need a data recover software like File Salvage or Data Rescue.

The fact that Mac Mail behaves this is totally insane in my opinion. No other email program I know behaves in such a way and I have recently left Apple feedback about this.
