On a more or less regular basis, the Mail application freezes on my computer during its first retrieval of messages after it first launches. I haven't quite figured out if there is any pattern to the freezes (which necessitate a Force Quit command to resolve). I think (though I am not sure) it occurs when there are a number of messages to retrieve (>6 or so). When I relaunch Mail (after the Force Quit) it seems to always be freeze-free from then. (However, on relaunch there's usually then 2 copies of each downloaded mail message). Any ideas? Thanks!
