Problems with Mail.app in Mac OS X 10.4?


#1

Hi,

Is anyone else having problems with Mail.app on Mac OS X 10.4?

It won’t see new messages. (It shows all messages up to a certain date.)

It worked fine in 10.3, and Thunderbird works fine on 10.4. I’m wondering if it might be an incompatibility with DH’s IMAP server.

(It’s Mail version 2.0.2, Mac OS X version 10.4.2)

Thanks,
Erik

Not here, no. I’m at work now so I can’t check the exact version numbers, but I’m using a completely up-to-date 10.4.2 and have had no problems with Apple Mail and DH IMAP.

I know the mail displayed is correct because I check mail via SSH and Mutt while I’m at work and have never seen a discrepancy.

Hmmm. I was hoping to blame the IMAP server because I have the same problem on both of my Macs.

The only other thing I can think of is that maybe Mail is having problems with the size of my mail folders. My “Personal” folder has 6714 messages in it. Do you (or anyone else here with Mail 2.0.2) have folders that big that synchronize correctly?

Thanks,
Erik

No, my OCD kicks in long before any single mail folder reaches that size. All my old mail is organized and archived in local folders, not on the IMAP server.
