I have a clean install of Lion on my 2011 iMac (it came preinstalled). I've changed my login preferences so that Mail is loaded automatically when i login. However, I can see items of mail being downloaded ok (badge icon display appears when i have mail in my inbox), but it is as if the mouse is non-responsive and i can't click anything. I need to quit mail then restart it to be able to use it properly (which obviously negates the point of having it as a startup item). Is this a known issue? From a google i can see as far back as Leopard people were complaining of Mail freezing on startup but i don't think it is the same issue.
