mac mail problem
Posted on 2013-01-30
My mac mail has been downloading over and over again the same 308 email messages from our server for the last 3 days. I was not in town and this happened. I have deleted all the messages from the server side so I does not retreive them. Now I have almost 300,000 emails in my inbox and I cannot delete them in bunches. If I try more than 50 it will lock up. I can do 1 at a time but I don't want to go insane. Is there a way to delete these messages outside of mail? Also, I have deleted the entire account in preferences which should delete the emails but when I create the email account again the 300,000 show up again. Must be a problem with mail reading some file on my computer or maybe my computer is crazy. I have setup this same email account on another mac and there are no problems.
