    Probably two totally unrelated things, but here goes:

    1. Mail is being totally unresponsive. When clicking Reply or Forward I get a spinning beach ball for around a minute. After a minute or so my Reply or Forward window appears, but what's causing the delay? I tried to search for some Mail preferences, couldn't find any and found these....

    2. 184 preference folders with garbled names (see attached screenshot)! I removed these and placed them in a folder but there's been no change.

    I think they're left over from Adobe CS2 and can be deleted. There are Mail preferences but don't delete them just yet as they can be a hassle to reconfigure. Open a new user account in System Preferences and this will give you a fresh version of the default preferences. Test if Mail behaves strangely in this account. :)
