    Here's something else to try that seems to have finished repairing an issue I encountered where Mail was taking an excessive amount of time to exist and close:

    Launch Mail, Click on the mailbox on the left, from the "Mailbox" menu at the top, choose Rebuild. Let it sit for a little bit. My Gmail account rebuilt very quickly with over 3000 messages in the inbox. My IMAP account took about a solid minute to rebuild and there were only two messages in the Inbox. Seems that was the problem mailbox.

    Hi and apologies for the loooong delay.

    Eventually reloaded OS X completely, ran all the updates etc. but it's still doing the exact same thing. Even when deselecting the automatic settings option, as soon as I quit and reopen it it is selected again.

    Does it still work properly with another user account? What about this profile is not configured the same as the "other" profile where it works? Are you signing in to iCloud? Using Keychain? There has to be a setting somewhere in your profile that's being sync'ed to the cloud and returning back to cause the issue.

    Unless... When you did the full reload, you didn't format the drive first and just reinstalled over the top of what was already there.

    It's finally working, but I'm thoroughly confused as to why

    I did format the drive and started from scratch but it still did the same thing. I then killed the accounts (including iCloud, which was inactive). I started by setting up iCloud and letting it sync mail (had to go through a whole story cause I never used it for email before). It then created my GMX account automatically (I assume it did this because my GMX email address is "linked" to my iCloud) and it asked me if it should activate it, which I let it do. After that I created my aliases and presto, they no longer disappear when I close Mail.

    So like I said, I'm confusseled

    Thanks for the help though
