Get Account Info in Mail
Authored by: NaOH-Lye on Jun 09, '11 01:52:18PM
This tip—despite what marksch thinks of its utility—was reported back in the 10.4 days. Robg's note from then about how this feature is oddly hidden and not accessible in any menus remains true in 10.6. For different reasons, the Account Info window was also mentioned in this post.

Get Account Info in Mail

Yes, there is no menu for this, but it is available if you right-click (or control-click) on the account. Nothing new, this option is there from 10.4.

It's useful if you need to delete a mail that gives problems when Mail tries to download it (like a mail with a gigantic attachment or a malformed mail that causes Mail crashes); in this case you ask account infos, select the offending message from the list and click the Delete from Server button.

Get Account Info in Mail

Actually, it is accessible from the gear menu at the bottom of the mailbox list in 10.6. Click the gear, and choose 'Get Account Info'. Still a useful hint, as I think a lot of people aren't aware of the account info window, and it can be very useful (also when a mailbox created elsewhere doesn't show up in Mail because it's not subscribed to).
