    This is for a Yahoo mail POP account that has worked fine for last 3+ years..
    whenever I try to delete a msg, it goes away for a second and comes back as was, with the following error popup:

    All other mailboxes are functioning fine.
    A copy of the message I delete from this Yahoo acct, does go in the Trash folder but the original stays in Inbox.
    I've emptied Trash, verified all settings, I don't remember changing anything, quitting the app and restarting my computer.
    Its been days now since this problem first came up...any idea what's wrong?

    Two quick suggestions: Repair Permissions, and Rebuild the mailboxes in Mail. Repairing permissions is done via Disk Utility; Rebuilding the mailboxes is in Mail under the Mailbox menu.
