Rebuild my Mail Database in Mac Mail

Use Quick Look to Preview Files
Your e-mail messages are stored as mailbox database files in the Mail folder of your Mac’s Library. Over time their amount grows, and this may affect your Mac’s efficiency. To prevent this from happening, rebuild the message databases:
1. Select a mailbox the database of which you wish to rebuild.
2. Click Mailbox, Rebuild.
Duration of the rebuilding process depends on the size of the mailbox.
