After installing Lion, Mail will not load any emails in the right hand view panel, only in the left hand mailboxes column and middle list column. Any emails downloaded SINCE the Lion install display fine. How can I get rid of the "Loading" grey graphic (see attached image) and actually display the emails??? I only had 1800 emails in Mail before the installation. I've waited overnight with it running but the "Loading" still continues.
Many thanks in advance for any help offered.
Found a solution at last... After over 2 weeks trying to get stuff working again so I could do my business — my printer, my scanner, my 3G modem and several apps for starters (plus some games and utilities) — I've uninstalled Lion completely and reverted to Snow Leopard. It took almost a day to execute fully but the saving in stress and frustration has been well worth the time and effort.
The only problem I found in the process was after starting from the original SL install disk, when it searched for available drives it refused to allow my MBP's HD saying SL could not be installed on it (it didn't mention any conflict with Lion so that's probably not why). I had to wipe the HD first using Disk Utility on the install disk, then run the install, then update using the 10.6.8 Combo Updater, then run Software Update, then Migration Assistant to bring in accounts from my backup (a Carbon Copy Cloner clone), then transfer all files from my original Home account on my backup into the Home accout on the new SL installation. Done.
I'll wait till next year to try Lion again, or at least wait until I have the time to research all the possible feature/app failures related to installing Lion so it won't block my workflow.
Some solution... but it has been 100% successful.
