    I have a 2006 MBP running Leopard.

    Never a problem in past. Last few days when I open Mail it says it is downloading emails. I get the graphic and audio confirmation that the download is complete so Mail knows there are messages there and seems to think it downloaded them. However no e-mails show up. If I hit "get mail" again Mail happily gives me the same signs that it is downloading the same e-mails but again, nothing.

    I can access my e-mail from the web interface without difficulty. There are unread messages there.

    My account is with Cox.

    This happened a few months ago and I fixed it - but I can't remember how. It was something very simple. I have marked all the messages read and unread but it still doesn't work.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Let me know if more info would be helpful.

    I have same issue.
    Some of my e-mail accounts works.
    The two does not.
    It worked until 11am this morning.

    I can access the mail through the Webmail with no issue.
    I can also send mails from these disfunctional accounts.
    I just can't receive the e-mails for these two accounts.

    I have COX also.

    Any help is appreciated.
