    I was wondering if anybody could help me here, i have Mail and have two imap google mail accounts linked to it. one account is running completely fine but the other account has a gear like icon and it just wont go away. its not trying to send anything out at all. but that icon just wont stop. its taking a small amount of internet speed with it too.

    is there any way i can fix this? ?

    thanks

    Gear Spinning In Menu Bar

    I also have a gear spinning in my menu bar every now and then. Usually in mail. But it goes away before I can locate it.

    yes yes, safe O G, i spoke to an apple genius and the best remedy for the problem is to delete the account from mail and then to set it up again. you won't lose anything. i don't know what the reason for it to be happening is though. hope that helps
