Mail hangs when opening.

Invoking Mail on restart gives instant "Application Not Responding." I've done a restart in safe mode and then normal with no apparent result. I've reinstalled Mavericks after running Disk Utility's repair function. No help!
Of course, this issue waited until my extended warranty expired on this Mid 2010 21.5 inch 3.06 gig Intel Core i3.

Any thoughts?

Do you have any other User accounts you can open? If not, create a new User account and see if Mail opens then. You may have a corrupted mail database in your current user account. A new user gets a new database.

Can't get that far. Just clicking Mail gets and instant "Not responding" and a soccer ball!
