My Mail won't quit.  This started on one machine and has no started to occur on another.  Does this occur when the mailbox is too full?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    You can "force quit" an app several ways.


    Control + Option + Esc on your keyboard


    Or from your Apple menu > Force Quit


    Or launch Activity Monitor located in /Applications Utilities


    To avoid mail from freezing, try rebuiliding the mailbox.


    From the Mail menu bar click Mailbox > Rebuild


    And try deleting mail in the Trash and Junk mail folders more often.

    Why is this still a problem 10-25-2012? I force quit and the dang thing still aborts shut down half the time.

    Nothing in Trash Nothing in Junk. This is a user problem that APL is not addressing. Give us a way to kill the sucker.
