Hey guys, I know there's a thousand threads out there for CPU usage in Mail but I'm not getting the 90-100% CPU usage, mine's locking in at about 25-30%.

I've tried rebuilding my mail box, deleting RSS feeds, deleting emails with large attachments, closing/re-opening Mail, taking my accounts offline, removing/re-adding com.apple.mail.plist, pretty much everything I could think of or find on the internet.

I should add that nothing's going on in Activity monitor, nothing out of the ordinary ( downloading email task which closes quickly after its done ).

The one thing that I know fixes it, is rebooting, which is pretty unacceptable.

I'm not sure what starts this up but I've noticed that if I delete a bunch of mail, it tends to happen. Regularly, mail runs at ~1-2% CPU usage.

Any ideas?
