I am having a bizarre problem that just started happening today. If I open mail, start a new message and go to add and attachment (either by dragging it into the window or through the attachment button) the program beachballs for about 2-3 minutes, then finally adds the attachment. The weird thing is, after that, you can compose messages and add attachments all you want and they add at normal speed. If you close mail.app and reopen it, then you have to wait 2-3 min again for your first added attachment. It occurs if you have windows friendly checked or not. I have trashed preferences with no effect. Any other options or solutions possible? This is frustrating. Thanks!
