    My system beachballed for the second time this week. So, this time around instead of restarting the system I checked out Activity Monitor to see if I can spot the trouble.

    Mac Mail was eating up 6GB of RAM. Could tell me if there's a solution to this problem - it is definitely not normal is it?

    I also observed that the RAM amount was going on increasing - after free memory was finished it went on to consume the inactive memory as well.

    Please let me know if I can solve this issue.

    No, not normal. Check to see if there's something in the Outbox trying to send. Also, you might try removing, then re-adding mail accounts. If none of those work, try deleting the /Users/yourusername/Library/Preferences/com.apple.mail.plist file, then relaunching Mail.
