I seem to have some trouble getting Mail to work.

When I run the program it hangs and gives me the beachball-of-eternity and not responding. Have to Force Quit it.

Anyone else having problems with Mail or have a solution? Quite annoying...

I had that issue as well... The only way i Fixed it was I formatted and reinstalled OSX when 10.4.8 came out. I couldnt find any other fix.

Before you do all the installing this over again..do you have mail.app collecting any other mail from gmail,yahoo etc.

Give disk utility a run and repair as needed.

Only my .mac account.

Tried repairing permissions but it didn't work.

And I am not so hot on doing a complete reinstall (just did it).

Update: I located the preference file for Mail.app in the user/library/Preferences folder and removed it. Worked.
