    Mail Question
    Since I updated to Mavericks (I wish I hadnít), I find that I have to restart a lot to clear my memory and reset things. Iíve noticed that the Mail program only shows From, Subject, and Date Received. I have to manually tell it to show Mailbox every time I restart the machine. Is there something I can do to make Mailbox a default thing? It use to remember my setting with older versions of OS X.

    1. You shouldn't have to restart to clear memory. What makes you think memory and "reset things" is a problem?
    2. In Mail, top bar, View, if you see "Show mailbox list," click it and the list will appear on the left. If you then leave it that way, it will show up when you open Mail again.

    Updated to version OS X.9.2 and be aware OS X.9.3 is due any day.

    You do not give your computer specs, but if a McBook or Pro, did you do a clean install of Mavericks? Personally always do a format of the drive and a clean install of all new operating systems after backing up to an external drive.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
