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.
