Hi,

MacMail has rarely been a problem for us with previous version of the Mac OS, however, now that two PowerBooks have been updated here in the office, they refuse to automatically download mail. That is, if the users want to check for new mail, they have to quit and restart MacMail. Once up, it takes a few more seconds, and then, finally, new mail arrives.

Nothing has changed mail server-wise, incoming or outgoing.

Anyone have any idea why this may be happening?

Thanks in advance.

Thought... one of the users was migrated to Leopard, perhaps deleting the mail account and setting up from scratch is a better idea, even if all the info is the same.

Anyone?

OK, I guess, but a rather odd sense of humour to me, and I don't see anything funny about your reply at all. Odd maybe, but definitely not funny.

Actually, I wonder why so many Mac support sites keep such old posts around.

I wasn't imagining that you in particular would enjoy the joke! But it was a topic that was recommended to me by the algorithm yesterday.

Because, well-indexed on Google, they provide potential clickbait for advertising exposure.
