10.4: Avoid a Mail 2.0 freeze at startup
Authored by: gxw on Jun 10, '05 08:27:57PM

Have not had mail 2.0 freeze on me that I have noticed.
I did change one of the default settings in mail for my POP account.
Mail defaults to leaving mail on the server when it retreives a message.
If you get a lot of mail, this old mail on the server will build up and slow down retreival.

So when I noticed that I had a whole bunch of old messages on left on the server I turned this option on.
Mail Prefs / accounts / pick a pop 3 account / advanced / remove mail from server after retreiving message

I have to check this option and set it to one day in the drop down.
