I would be very grateful if someone could explain to me why Mail seems to be constantly downloading emails - the activity monitor says "updating cache directory - sent my .mac account", although the particular mailbox varies - the activity viewer says incoming mail 1 of 1056 (for example). This seems to happen on a daily basis. I share this account on 1 other computer.

Surely it shouldn't need to do this so often? It doesn't really bother me except that I'm on the end of a satellite connection which, while uncapped, has low bandwidth, so this process is taking bandwidth from more important tasks.....

I'd appreciate any tips!!
