Since upgrading to Mountain Lion, the notes application on my Mac has duplicate iCloud accounts, which is also doubling all my notes. Does anyone have a solution here?

    Thank you so much seantw! That was annoying the heck out of me to. I found it a little difficult to follow, but it worked!

     

    Issue:

    1. Notes displaying two iCloud accounts.

    2. Notes on Mac are not pushing to iOS devices.

    3. Nots on Mac are duplicating over and over.

     

    Fix:

    1. Go to System Preferences > iCloud > Uncheck Mail

    2. Open mail. Go to mail > preferences > accounts. Make sure there is no iCloud present. If there is, delete it.

    3. Go to Macintosh HD > Library > caches.

    4. Select all, delete the files. (Some may be left behind. Leave them alone.)

    5. Go to finder. Locate Go on the top left of the screen.

    6. Go to Go > hold Option Key > Library > Caches

    7. Select all, delete the files. (Some may be left behind. Leave them alone.)

    8. Go to Go > hold Option Key > Library > Containers

    9. Delete the file named com.apple.notes

    10. Restart your computer.

    11. Empty trash.

    12. Open notes. Should be fixed.

    13. Go to System Preferences > iCloud > Check Mail

     

    Hope this makes it a little more clear, but all praise to seantw
