Mail application uses the (SQLite) Envelope Index database to index and search messages. By rebuilding this database, issues concerning messages that appear incomplete or are missing can be corrected. This feature may also improve Mail’s performance.
When you receive attachments to e-mail messages in Apple’s Mail, the files are stored with your messages at first. But if you double-click an attachment to view it, Mail stores a copy inside the Library folder. You may have dozens of files here occupying a huge amount of space. You can generally delete these without worry. If you still have the original messages, the attachments are part of those messages.
Simple Finder disables file access altogether. Any files on your desktop will be hidden and the Finder will no longer open any windows. The Dock and Launchpad will still be fully functional for app launching.
