I have a problem with my iBook (but not with my iMac or iPhone). I can no longer send or receive .mac e-mails from the iBook, but can still send and receive mails from my POP account. I have no problem on the iMac or iPhone.

Every now and again I get the following message:

+Mail has undone actions on some messages so that you can redo the actions while online. Mail has saved other messages in mailbox “On My Mac” in “On My Mac” so that you can complete the actions while online.+

+Additional information: The connection to the server “mail.mac.com” on port 993 timed out.+

All the while a message I tried to send last week, is gradually filling up the draft file. Up to 14 now, though I delete them every so often. Anyone got any ideas?

    sounds like you need to rebuild your mailboxes. there's a link in the apple pages (not this forum) that tells you how to do it. I'll look for it when I get home from work if you can't find it.
