Mail not working.

Hi
My apple mail has not been working for a few weeks. I have an att email, and one day it simply would not send or receive mail. I deleted and re-added the account, and now it says "All Accounts are Offline" and won't synchronize. Any idea on how to get my mail working again would be great!

Don't take my word for this, maybe someone more knowledgable can chime in. But I think if you delete your mail .plist file, which may be somehow corrupted, it will create a new one next time you use Mail.

I had similar problems with OS X Tiger and searched the internet and found that solution, and it worked for me. But as I say, I'm no expert and possibly someone can confirm (or refute) this as a solution.

This is somewhat a true way to solve your problem.
Many people do say you have to remove the plist files of the application if you have disabilities in the application.
