    Just installed 10.4.2 for the first time. I have mail set up to grab email from my university's IMAP server. Mail insists on downloading mail from over 40,000 acounts that are not mine! It give me an error message that I don't have permission to access those folders! Of course I don't! How to I force mail to attempt to download email from only MY account?

    You probably need to set an IMAP path prefix (in the advanced tab of the account preference). Your university should have a help page that specifies what prefix to use. (It is usually something simple like "mail")
