There are plenty of places to go to get help on Apple issues - and this blog is <strong>not</strong> one of them. BUT, ever since I upgraded to 'El Capitan', the VIP function in Mail just hasn't worked. Until today. <a href="http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/206860/vips-in-mail-havent-worked-since-the-first-el-capitan-public-beta" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">I found the help on 'Stack Exchange'.</a>

In summary …

1] Select a single VIP Mailbox
2] Go to View then Sort Select All Mailboxes
3] Go to the main VIP Mailbox and all should appear

Spoiler alert … they did!

It boils down to the old ‘switch off. switch it on again’ help desk advice – except this is even more weird. Still – it works. But why?
