Currently Being ModeratedNov 22, 2005 1:05 PM (in response to David Laduke)This message indicates the "On My Mac" spam mailbox you created has some corruption.
As a first step, try using the Rebuild Mailbox function on this mailbox. If never used, try running it several times.PowerBook G4 17-inch 1.67GHz - 1GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.4.3), 7200rpm/100GB HD, Click-Wheel iPod

Thank you for your help. I rebuilt the mailbox - discovered that a bunch of mail I thought I had marked "read" wasn't - and the mail count was correct.
Question: this is a fairly new mailbox (less than a week old). Will I encounter corruption again because I'm manually deleting messages from outside of mail? (i.e. with my cron script?)

Since the mailbox is new and less than a week old, this may be caused by using a script outside of Mail to delete messages from this mailbox since I haven't experienced the same with any of my mailboxes under Tiger Mail.
It is a good idea to use the Rebuild Mailbox function on the most active mailboxes on a regular basis but I do so on a monthly or every couple of weeks basis depending on activity.PowerBook G4 17-inch 1.67GHz - 1GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.4.3), 7200rpm/100GB HD, Click-Wheel iPod
