    Hi all,

    Apple Mail lately has been going crazy on me after a couple days/weeks of usage. I usually leave my Apple Mail open 24x7.

    Basically the app runs fine and is connected to my IMAP accounts with no issues. I can send and receive mail fine.

    However, after 5 / 10+ days, the app will go crazy and start downloading at 500KB/s+. Last night it downloaded 51GB of data and previously (2 weeks ago) it downloaded an astounding 100GB of data.

    Not sure what it is downloading, next time I will probably Wireshark it.

    But very distributing either way to have such a bug...
