    Please help, I have recently changed servers and it has caused me a whole load of hassles with my mail......

    I moved all of my mail into different 'on my mac' folders, we made a folder called 'old sent' and moved all sent mail into I have all my mail saved...... so I delete the old mail accounts....

    Now, I am sending and receiving mail normally.......

    But, other weird things are happening.....

    I use the search facility on mail all the time as have thousands of business emails.....

    I have emails come up with the search facility that I cannot see anywhere else! When searching you have the headings; From/Subject/date received/rank/Mailbox......

    In the Mailbox section, there now seems to be a mailbox called 'All mail' which is saving a copy of every single email, even if it has been moved to trash, it will have 1 copy of the original email and then 1 copy of that same email in trash......

    In that same Mailbox section, I also now seem to have a mailbox called 'Sent mail' but that mail that was sent was deleted, so what is this 'Sent mail' mailbox?

    So basically as a test, I sent a test email to my private email address...... I then back in my mac mail, I deleted the sent message...... then deleted the trash...... so in theory the message should be gone...... but when I search for 'testing' (the title of the test email) 2 emails appear one in the ?all mail' mailbox and 1 in the 'Sent mail' box.......

    Am confused....

    But I need to sort this asap before I start sending more emails, as using the search from now on will be a nightmare!

    Any ideas?

    Your post is exceptionally difficult to understand. If you had to summarize your problem in one sentence, what would it be?

    Mail 3.6 with OSX/10.5.8 mail not downloading

    I am able to launch mail, and apparently send mail. However, one moment I was getting my mail, the next my incoming mail stopped downloading. I get a progress bar, but it stays the same. The only thing I've tried is rebooting...several times.

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
