I found my ~/Library/Mail/ doesn't contain any files in it,


Make sure that you're navigating to your user directory's ~/Library/ and not the main Macintosh HD Llbrary.


Quickest way to do this is to paste the ~/Library/Mail/ path into Alfred, in fact :)


Don't move anything, as Mail's files need to be where Mail expects them to be. Just make sure Mail is set up with your accounts, then take a look at the path above ensuring you're definitely in the right user directory, and we'll take it from there.


Also, please let us know which version of macOS and Alfred you're using.

Just sharing my own experience: 

I had "no results and fallback to default search" until I granted "Full Disk Access" rights to Alfred. You can do that in System Preferences/Security & Privacy/Privacy/Full Disk Access. Click the padlock icon to allow changes, then drag Alfred to the app list on the right. Make sure it's checked, restart Alfred, done. Voila, work like charm.


This is MacOS Mojave 10.14.3 and Alfred v3.8


Thanks for the great wf, @Vero
