Mail....problem solved!!!

Ok, the other day I was whining about mail.app v3 not working with IMAP and MDaemon 9.61.

With the help of somebody on the Apple support forum, the problem has been solved.

The solution is simple:

  1. Shutdown Mail.
  2. Delete or rename: /Users/username/Library/Mail
  3. Start up Mail.
Mail will come up with the update dialog again, and then after that should work correctly. However, you may need to shutdown and start up mail again for this to work. 
It may take a while to synchronise your folders, but it will do it eventually.

This seems to be related to the automatic update that Mail.app v3 makes to the v2 mailboxes.

Hope this is helpful to somebody.... :-)
