Currently Being ModeratedJul 7, 2009 6:35 PM (in response to integlspwr)Have you tried rebuilding your Mail index, or even repairing permissions? If not, do the first by quitting Mail and opening Users/Username/Library/Mail and delete the Envelope Index file. Then restart Mail and wait for it to import your existing mail into the program, then test to see if things speed up.iMac 15" 1.35 Ghz PPC G4, Mac OS X (10.4.11), 1 GB RAM
Currently Being ModeratedJul 8, 2009 6:26 PM (in response to sitspotsit)Yes i rebuilt the mail boxes. Still having same issues.
I did not do the permissions fix yet.
what happens if you delete the Envelope Index file.
Will i loose all my emails in my inbox?
I do not want to loose anything in my inbox i just would want it to not have that lag like it does.
Currently Being ModeratedJul 8, 2009 6:33 PM (in response to integlspwr)If you delete the Envelope Index file, you lose nothing; it just gets recreated when you restart Mail. But if you haven't tried repairing permissions yet, do that. If you're using DSL or cable Internet, it's worth the effort to reset your modem/router by unplugging it for a few minutes, then plug it back in and see if that also helps.
You should also open System Preferences>Network and add these two DNS server entries:
Save the changes and quit, then restart Mail. These are faster servers than those used by your ISP, and in the case of Safari, will provide protection against phishing attacks.iMac 15" 1.35 Ghz PPC G4, Mac OS X (10.4.11), 1 GB RAM
Currently Being ModeratedJul 9, 2009 9:10 PM (in response to integlspwr)To repair permissions:
Launch Disk Utility (in your /Applications/Utilities folder), select the name of your hard drive, be sure you're in the First Aid section, then click on Repair Disk Permissions and wait for it to finish. Quit and restart Mail to see if it makes any difference.
Post back with results, and whether or not you rebuilt your Mail index.iMac 15" 1.35 Ghz PPC G4, Mac OS X (10.4.11), 1 GB RAM
