    Major Email Problems in Lion
    I upgraded to Lion several weeks ago. Before then, all my e-mail content was completely searchable. After the upgrade, my search function no longer works in my e-mail.

    So, I searched forums and found various solutions. Most recommended doing various things with different mail folders, i.e. re-building mailboxes, etc. A recurring file destination mentioned was home/library/mail to find the various files needed. Well, that poses a major problem for me. I have searched my entire computer over, literally for hours, and cannot locate a single "mail" folder on my entire computer. I have even enabled the viewing of hidden files. There is simply not a "mail" folder located anywhere, let alone in a "library" folder.

    I have messages in my mail account and various mailboxes. However, I also cannot locate any "mailbox" file anywhere on my computer.

    So, I would love to tackle the major bug in Lion regarding mail search function, but I can't even begin as the files do not exist, at least not in visible sight.

    Has anybody ever heard of this or have any suggestions?
