I've found multiple "duplicate" POP folders in user/library/mail. The dupe folders are renamed slightly (and contain all current mail) - instead of xxxx@earthlink.net they are named xxxx@earthlink.net@pop.earthlink.net.

I haven't changed anything in my mail prefs, and this apparently recent situation seems redundant.

Questions -

Does the info.plist file rebuild on reboot?

Will I hose my mail if I move all the mail from the latter to the former box above?

Why did this happen?

Thanks - bb99
