I have just imported 20 MBOX files from my outlook 2011 - a fair amount of emails!!


But I'm finding that when I click onto the folders, I am getting nothing in teh preview initially sometimes and... some of the folders begins some kind of scan? progress in activity panel say: "updating color for messages"


Any idea of what is going on? I am new to Mail 4.5...


I will probably be upgrading tomorrow to lion, so perhaps it won't do this anymore after that?
