10.4: Resolving Mail signature synching issues System 10.4
Tiger only hintI was having a nasty time trying to get my Apple Mail signatures to synchronize on my .Mac account. The same Conflict Resolver message would come up over and over again, with the same message:
There is one conflict involving Mail Rules, Signatures, and Smart Mailboxes. Select the correct com.apple.mail.SignaturesOwner information below
It didn't matter whether I chose the Mail or .Mac choice, the Conflict Resolver would come back momentarily with another selection.

As it turns out, the problem is that the conflict cannot be resolved while Apple Mail is running. It seems obvious now, but you'd think Apple could have put something into the program to shut down Apple Mail when a conflict arose. Very frustrating!

Thanks.
I had this problem so I just manually edited the signatures, which worked. Your method is much better.

10.4: Resolving Mail signature synching issues

My signatures are fine. The BIG problem are my Mail rules. I have rules that move specified incoming messages from Inbox to a specified Mailbox and copy them to a specified custom Mailbox on .Mac for viewing online. The problem is Mail forgets the .Mac mailbox constantly and I end up with 2 copies in my desktop Mail and none online. This worked fine under Panther. It's very time consuming manually organising my Mail.

I had this issue after setting my signatures to Random, and after setting the the signatures to successive, after it finished all of it's syncing issues, it stopped getting them, but if it happens again I will try this for sure. Thanks.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

This was driving me CRAZY! .Mac help and Apple support gave me a huge convoluted checklist to perform when all I needed to do is switch off mail. You're awesome - thanks again.
