I have the new MacBook Pro with Retina Display, and my Apple Mail has always worked just fine. About a week ago, I recieve a message saying "Mail cannot access your mailbox information because it’s already in use." The dialogue box gave me the options of "Rebuilding Mailbox Information" or quitting the application. Rebuilding does absolutely nothing, and every time I try to open Mail I get the same response and have to quit. I haven't added any apps or anything that would affect my mail; what's going on? Thanks!

MacBook Pro (Retina, Mid 2012), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
