    Hi, I am using Leopard version 10.5.5 on a mac pro and Mail keeps crashing when trying to sync accounts.

    I have two MobileMe accounts that sync with the account, and it always crashes while doing a search for new mail.

    It was working fine this morning, I then turned my computer off to go to work, the only difference now is that I started my computer up with my iPhone connected. At first I thought that may have been the problem, so I restarted without it.

    Now for the actual question; If I can't resolve it, does anyone think that deleting the Preferences file will fix it?

    I don't particularly want to reformat because I only did that about a month ago.

    Any help would be awesome!

    dude - I was just having the same prob

    go into Preferences and delete the account that's giving you the most problems, and then go back in again and add it again ----- I just did this and its seeming to resolve things

    I just tried that, but it crashes before I can actually delete the account.

    Is there a way I can stop it doing a sync?

    Also, the problem is, having two accounts, I'm not sure which is the one causing the headache.

    I think I fixed it.

    I deleted everything out of my username>Libraries>Mail folder.

    I opened mail and it's now re-downloading all my emails.
