And if i clic "Activity"i get this

Any idea about what's wrong?
(My MBP runs OS X 10.7.4, Mail version is 5.2)
Thanks a lot

Clear the mail cache

Try clearing mail.app's cache. I have had this problem and this worked for me:

Delete everything in: Users/[user name]/Library/Caches/com.apple.mail

The user Library folder is hidden by default in Lion and that is why you are not seeing it.

Code:
/Users/gaurish/Library/Caches
Click on your desktop to bring focus to the Finder. Then type shift-command-g (all three keys at once) and a box will come up. Copy/paste the line above into the box and hit enter. That will get you in the folder Frederico mentioned.
