    Well, I originally thought that ShapeShifter was the culprit but Mail is still having the same annoyance. Whenever I have new mail, the messages are not displayed in the window unless I scroll up and down a couple times. Anyone else have this problem and know if it can be fixed? Are there any preference files or anything that I can delete to start fresh? I would rather not do a clean OS install if I don't have to.

    Any third party plugins installed?

    I did a clean install and haven't experienced the same problem, suggesting that it's most likely a conflict.

    Are you saying that you did have this problem? No plug-ins or anything installed.

    I don't have this problem.

    I was merely suggesting that the cause of the problem is likely to be a conflict with something you currently have installed, most likely to be a third party plugin. Mail v.2 broke a lot of plugins.

    Perhaps try deleting the Bundles folder, located at ~/Library/Mail/Bundles.

    When did this start happening?

    I just presumed that it was from upgrading from Tiger to Panther but having reread your post, you haven't mentioned that at all :eek:

    To delete mail's preferences file, do a search in Finder for "com.apple.mail.plist".

    I'm not sure exactly. I did a clean install of Tiger. I tried out the Tiger-compatible ShapeShifter and subsequently removed it. I did have JunkMatcher when I was using Tiger and I am sure it got restored in my Apps folder. I wonder if I need to delete that.
