10.4: Refresh Mail's Smart Mailboxes using AppleScript
Authored by: sr105 on Mar 04, '10 10:16:32AM

My setup: Mail 4.2 on 10.6.2
Using "Rebuild" on a Smart Mailbox does seem to work, but it also seems to try and connect to my not-in-use Outgoing servers as well for some reason. I think Rebuild might be buggy.

Also, having a shortcut for Rebuild seems dangerous if you have a very large >1GB IMAP mailbox because if you get in the habit of hitting that shortcut, you might do it while inside an IMAP mailbox. Then, I hope for your sake that you're connected to the IMAP server on a very high speed connection and have 30 min or more to spare.

It would be oh-so-nice if the menu item changed to "Rebuild Smart Mailbox" so we could avoid the error.
