During deleting mail in Mail, the process locked, the red close button wouldn't work and the number of mail in my inbox started increasing to thousands. What is happening?

While deleting mail from inbox in Mail, a box popped up asking me to log into something called SSLPost. Not knowing what this means, I tried to close this box - it won't go! Also, my mailbox won't close as the red close button has lost its colour. I can only close it by pressing exit mail on the file drop-down menu. Worse - my mail inbox messages are increasing all the time - up to 1848 as I write. Has anyone else had this happen. It almost looks like a virus which won't allow me to close it down and increases the message total constantly. Please help. I'm too old to know what the **** goes on inside computers.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
