    Hey all,

    I have a problem with the new Mac Mail on Leopard and I'm hoping I'm not the only one becase I simply don't know how to solve this.

    When I import my old mail folders, I get multiple "On My Mac" dropdowns in the application. To make matters worse, it seems like only one of the dropdowns actually works.

    Has anyone seen this?

    Thanks,

    -MT

    Did you ever get this figured out, because mine is now doing it!

    Yes, this is what I had to do.

    1) Delete your mail folders (assuming you have backups of them)
    2) Install or update to 10.5.1
    3) Open mail (creating default folders)
    4) Re-import folders (over-writing the default folders)

    Generally the 10.5.1 update should take care of it but I try to remove any chance of errors by reducing outside variables as much as possible.
