This started out being a problem with syncing mail with my iPhone, but I see that my mail account doesn't appear in Mail preferences anymore. I've tried checking the box beside "mail" under system preferences > Mail, Contacts & Calendars, then going to Mail preferences, but the account still doesn't show up. And when I go back to System Preferences, the box is not checked.


I've tried re-setting up my mail account, but it tells me that account already exists.


I've tried repairing permissions, but that didn't help.


I've tried disconnecting and re-connecting the modem (Mail inbox tells me "Unable to Connect" and Connection Doctor says IMAP and SMTP accounts could not connect.)


What should I do now???
