10.4: Avoid a Mail 2.0 freeze at startup
Authored by: sig eigei on Jun 13, '05 06:56:13AM

I started having this problem almost immediately after having installed 10.4. I continually check 5 POP servers automatically from witihin Mail. I never thought to deactivate the network connection but this is what I did did to resolve the issue:

Inevitably Mail will stop responding when this freeze occurs so you must force-quit the application. When restarting Mail I quickly click the button to Go Offline (you have to manually put this in your Mail window bar by Customizing the bar). One Mail is offline I manually get my mail from each account one by one by by going to the menu bar and then Mailbox>Get New Mail>(account). After retrieving the mail in each account I select Go Online and then Mail works normally.
