I cannot receive emails without having to force quit the mail programme.  My internet provider has checked their side and all is OK. I can get webmail OK.


After I force quit, then I can "get new mail" and messages come through OK.


Mac helpdesk suggested a mailbox rebuild. I tried that but no change ( assuming I did it OK ).


any ideas greatly appreciated.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
