    Unhappy Unable to delete mail messages
    I am unable to delete my mail messages.

    I press delete, the messages go from REGULAR to GRAYED OUT, but they are still there. I'm now up to 287 and rising daily.

    I have an iMac 10.5.8, serial.. QP918022ZE2

    Any suggestions would be appreciated...I am being overwhelmed!!

    Back to my old 2.2GHz C2D MB after selling my MBP and wondering what my next Mac will be :)
    Instead of posting another thread, perhaps you should have responded to your thread last week, and we could have continued troubleshooting from there!

    Also, unless you like getting spam, I would remove your email address from there, or at the very least change it to
    gsweeney7777 at verizon dot net

    Heck yes, get that email address out of there! Changing it as suggested (cheers, 6string), ie removing the dots, is too easily overcome by simply putting them back in again.

    Just a comment about Mail Prefs, in that the option of deleting manually is not given. It's one of the reasons I don't use Mail, but I checked an earlier version of it and it seems to want to control the In mail rather than letting the user do so.

    In the meantime, use Onyx Titanium Software to repair Permissions, as I suspect the problem may be related to that.
    Please post your Mac (or other) specs and MacOS version in your post, your profile or your signature. It helps us to help you better.

    I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
