It always happens on Tiger->Leo migrations
Authored by: cavenewt on Jun 05, '09 12:41:55PM

I've had it happen when using Migration Assistant (I don't think it happens on a simple Tiger to Leopard upgrade.) Sometimes trashing the messagesorting.plist and/or messagerules.plist files works, but usually I have to delete the ~Library/Preferences/ file, then reconfigure Mail for all the accounts, to fix it.

One client had called Apple first, and was preparing to send his brand new MacBook in for a system reinstall (!), when he mentioned it to me and we fixed it in 30 seconds over the phone. Impressed the client no end.
