Worked fine for me too - accidentally attached a 32MB file and then tried to stop the send.
I quit Mail, used Onyx to show hidden files, and then deleted the offender in the OfflineCache folder.
I then relaunched Mail and the issue was gone - no need to remove and set up the email account.
I just got over the same issue! Mail kept downloading a message with file attached over & over and stored them in "recovered messages" folder. VERY annoying. After deleting mail account and "plist" and reopening my gmail account nothing happened. Weeks of troubleshooting later I turned off my airport and reopened mail. Went to preferences, then mailbox behaviors tab, in "trash" I selected, "quitting mail", and under "advanced" tab,
I selected "don't keep copies of any messages" I then closed the preferences window and deleted the "recovered messages" folder. I then closed mail. turned on my airport, then relaunched mail. So far it has worked. The problem is definitely with the Mail program. I hope this works for all of you with the same problem.
I have been battling this problem ever since I upgraded to SL. I have tried what Moondoggie suggested and it did not work. The only way I am able to continue to receive email is by emptying the .offline cache folder. I am required to do this several times a day to keep receiving. This was not an issue until I upgraded to 10.6.
My apple @me account works just fine of course.
Please find a permanent solution to this problem. Receiving email should never be this complicated. If I don't get a solution soon, I will have no choice but to use a different mail app.
I am also having this problem. At first I thought it was just annoying, but it's more than that. I am now losing messages that have ended up in the "Recovered Messages" folder.
My setup is as follows:
Apple Mail Client
IMAP mail account on 1and1.co.uk
I have 2 Mail Rules set up.
1. Every time I receive an incoming message of any sort, fire the applescript "Filter Sent Messages". This is a widely used Mail Script that simply runs all rules against the Sent Mailbox.
2. My second rule moves anything that I have sent to a Store folder within my IMAP account.
Symptoms of problem.
Send an email in Mail (from me, from my 1and1 account.)
Email sits in Outbox mailbox
Wheel spins against Sent folder
Mail activity pop-box shows very slow progress in completing send of "Outgoing Messages"
Meanwhile wheel spins to indicate attempting synchronisation against 1and1 IMAP account
During this slow progress, many copies of the email start appearing in the "Recovered Messages" mailbox.
Eventually Send appears to have completed
However, and this is the worrying part, I am definitely experiencing some of these messages not being sent, with no sort of warning that send has failed. Also, I am also experiencing the message being sent but my second rule (see above) failing to move the message to my IMAP store folder. If I delete the "Recovered Messages" I lose such messages completely.
Any advice wold be gratefully received. I'd also like to know how to bring it to Apple's attention.
Deleting Offline Cache folder is treating the symptom. It cures nothing
I too am having the same problem. Recovered message keeps reloading in time machine. I cannot receive gmail in apple but can send. Have been to apple store genius bar three times and they are no help. Say its a gmail problem --from everything I am reading on here, I dont agree. Have taken IMap gmail and changed it to POP, still does not help. uNplugged, rebooted, reinstalled gmail...One month now with this problem. And yes, upgraded snow leopard.
