Mail crashing on large IMAP account?

    Sorry for the barrage of Mail questions I've been making, but I'm new to the app (coming over from Entourage) and I'm new to IMAP, so I'm kinda lost on some stuff.

    Most notably, my IMAP account crashes Mail every time I launch if there is a major change in the amount of emails in any of my folders. For example: say I get like 40+ emails on my work machine (which happens often). I read through them, delete most of them, mark others as un-read or flag some of them. Now, when I open my laptop, as Mail tries to sync all those changes, unexpectedly quits everytime. The only way I can fix it is to copy the whole Mail folder over from my desktop.

    Anyone else having issues like this?

    In case anyone cares or is having this same problem, I found the fix. It was the GrowlMail plugin causing the crash. After uninstalling the plugin, not a single crash since.

    Supposedly they have released an update to the plugin for Leopard, but I haven't tried it yet.

    Just thought i'd share...
