Hi everybody. My friend has a bit of a pickle to solve:

She wrote a very important note using Mac notes. She had it on her iPhone and moved it to her Mac mail. Within mail, she dragged it from its location on the cloud to what she thought was a folder in Mail. She clicked on that folder to confirm transfer and found that there was no such file.

She looked from where the file came, and no file to be found.
She looked where it was supposedly transferred, no file.
She did a search within Mail, no file
She did a search of her computer, no file.
She went to her mail server and did a search, no file.
She did a search on her computer, no file.
She opened/ closed mail and her computer and tried all of the above Again, no file.

WHERE could this file be?! I am at a loss for answers. Any help would be appreciated.

If you want to find your mail > notes. Open your mail app. and look to the left pane, where you have your mailboxes [inbox - drafts - sent - ...] the below that you have reminders [Notes - To do].

Mac in ~/Library/Mail/Mailboxes/Notes.mbox others on the IMAP server (in my case on my Mobile.me account)
Hope this helps or try below solution

Option1:
Notes sync requires Mac OS X version 10.5.7 or later on a Mac. Is your Mac's OS really still 10.5.2 as indicated in your profile?
If you need it, you can get the update to 10.5.8 here: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL866\

Option2:
you need to set up IMAP with Mail, your Notes will appear as messages from yourself in your inbox on your server.
You can sync your notes via gmail and that the easy way.

Thank you for your response. I sent your solution to my friend to see if it works for her. Her Mac isthmus years'  model, and so no - she would not be on 10.5.x.

Oops. 'Isthmus' is supposed to read 'is this'.

She gave up and rewrote the document using other means. Oh well. I will award points as soon as I find a computer (not my ipad that doesn't have the points options). Good work!
