    This email program is driving me crazy!!!


    I have had nothing but problems and have spent hours in the last year
    with tech support .......finally it is okay in its operation except it
    no longer wants to eliminate junk mail. I have had it in training......
    no good.....on automatic.........no good. I get all the same junk emails
    over and over and over.

    Any suggestions?

    WOW!! apple sure plans ahead with their OSes... maybe it's an early bug in Mac OS X House Cat???

    but really, have you tried repairing your permissions or maybe rebuilding your mailbox (Mailbox --> Rebuild Mailbox) just some guesses...

    You should just upgrade to Panther.
    Everything, including mail, works better.

    Panther upgrade fix?

    Sorry I do not have a spare $120 laying around the house besides
    it should not cost that kind of money to fix an e mail program

    rebuilding the mailbox erases the old index and rebuilds it... go to that mailbox and in the mailbox menu select "rebuild"... try that for all of your mailboxes... don't expect this to work... i'm just suggesting things... also try going to your junk mail preferences and select "reset"

    mailbox rebuild grayed out

    I reset the junk filter as you suggested but the rebuild is grayed out.
    Now what?
