Hello Ernie,

Let's try to fix your problem. First, I'd like you to try some general maintenance on your computer.

1) Boot into safe mode by following these instructions under "Try a Safe Boot":

2) Restart in normal mode

3) Repair permissions on your computer by following these instructions:

Once you've done those, try Mail again. Let me know if anything changes. Kind regards,
