10.4: Avoid a Mail 2.0 freeze at startup

Or you could just use Little Snitch

1) download and install Little Snitch, rather easy to do.

2) Next time Mail 2.0 crashes at launch open little snitch, authenticate and scroll down to find the rule for Mail. Double click it and deny all connections.

3) Launch Mail, wait for it to tell you none of the mailboxes can be accessed. Go to Little Snitch and reverse what you did by allowing Mail 2 to use the ports.

Sure it might take a little longer than unplugging but you don't chuck your connection just for Mail. Which is handy for those of use who IM or file transfer on our networks.

Hello

The other way is to disconnect all mail accounts. A shortcut is include in the Mail app Tools Bar.
After that , you can reconnect one account and get your message
Proceed one by one
It's not the fastest way, but it's only with the Mail.app

This method works better than my english
