Wednesday, January 10, 2007 suddenly crashing on open

A bizarre, inexplicable problem hit me this morning. I suddenly had no Everything appeared fine, and I even managed to answer one email. The rest of my emails gave me some message about needing to be downloaded from the server (something I have never seen before). I did some digging and found this awesome trick to use when encountering similar problems.

Basically, find:

~/Library/Mail/Envelope Index

Rename it to:

~/Library/Mail/Envelope Index.bak

Restart Mail and let it reload your messages. All was fine after that!
