Default Blasted 'tagging' system on my mail

HELP! My mail began collating and 'tagging' my messages to other messages some time ago. It drives me mad.as a message sent out can come back with a totally different title and I don't therefore recognise it as the original message sent out. I often therefore delete a message not realising it carried my original post.,then can't find that post.
I also sometimes send on a photo/message e.g.... to another party not realising I am sending a whole string of 'toilet paper' with it... Agghhhhh

I have tried to find the relevant info to stop this in my 'help' box... but nothing matches

Anyone out there can offer help.. greatly appreciated

Yahoo does something like that, refers to it as Conversations. Try searching for that as you can turn it off. I hate it for the same reason as you, I end up deleting stuff in error so I keep the option switched off.

If you are using Windows 10 Mail, go to Settings, select Message List, then Organisation and select Individual messages instead of Grouped by conversation.

Thanks for that tip Pollyana I found conversations listed on my system with a tick next to it ( I certainly didn't set that up) so have un ticked it... fingers crossed

Ok, rats, sorry, I forgot that you were Apfel based... I can't help here with the email thing.

I'm in deep lumber trying to get my Apfel ID back and synced with Win so I can try and get some vague handle on how these people are currently screwing me-

A liitle off-topic but:
I'm also using Yosemite on one of my Macs - an 8 year old, white unibody MacBook. Still runs beautifully although its not my favourite Mac OS.
I was getting prompts to update to the latest High Sierra, so added a partition to the HD and installed it. Although I had 4Gb memory installed (ample for my everyday needs) High Sierra ran slowly, and although the Macbook can take 16GB memory, it ain't for me as I can see no point.
Thought this may be of interest for other users of the same OS.

Talking Re: Blasted 'tagging' system on my mail

Unselecting or 'unchecking' view conversations should solve the problem, however, several options within OSX mail have changed since Yosemite. Depending on the age of your Mac, I would recommend updating to the latest OS-X version anyway. I would also recommend reviewing ALL your mail settings as a matter of course. Once you get the hang of it, MAIL in OS-X is a very good client with many useful options that can save masses of time and manage a significant mail archive. It's also no problem to run a second mail client in parallel, such as Mozilla Thunderbird. I use it to manage specific mail accounts. I've tried many of the new flashy mail apps, but the basic MAIL can't be beaten for flexibility.

DO use a decent, branded, antivirus programme along with your Mac. None of the free stuff.

There should be no noticeable speed difference with High Sierra. 4Gb is adequate as a Mac uses memory in a completely different manner to Windows. Slow performance could be due to other issues.

There is a decent utility programme you can use to help with this if you are interested. NOT Mac cleaner or any of the regularly spammed stuff.

BUCKS: let me know if you need assistance with the Apple ID thing.

Cheers that man, I'll report back either way..

My current problems are proximity to my iPad and any requests that I make come back in German (!)...
