I’ve been a happy SpamSieve user for over a year (but using Claris Emailer in Classic). I’ve just made the jump to an iLife ™, but am now experiencing frequent Mail.app crashes, almost every time it downloads mail
Everything had been running smoothly for the first few days. I exported 24,000 email messages using Emailchemy and successfully imported them into Mail. I setup 6 mail accounts, all POP accounts and received and sent mail OK.
My problems started yesterday, around the time I installed MailTags and updated to SpamSieve 2.6.3. I’ve uninstalled MailTags (maybe another day) and now I want to prove that SpamSieve isn’t the cause of my problems. Is it just as simple as turning off the SpamSieve Mail Rules?
I’m not too familiar with Mail, but have read plenty recently about its clunkiness and how it is not a Pro Mail application. But, I am not a Pro user and I was just getting to like it, until it started crashing.
Does anyone have any silver bullet Mail troubleshooting tips? I’ve tried deleting and rebuilding the Envelope Index file (in ~/Library/Mail), but this didn’t work.
I can usually start up Mail and tweak the Account settings in Preferences to disable the account that is causing the crash. But that means I don’t get any email from that account. Any tips?
