An exaggeration. I have gotten some but a fraction. In my Mail inbox, the last e-mail I received was September 13th but when I logged into my sympatico e-mail account, I had received many more since then. I went to preferences and settings in both but I had no clue what to do. Then, suddenly my Mac Mail was updated with all those missing e-mails. So, it appears to be working now but I don't know why. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Why the heck is it working now?
