Explain this to me, folks. My e-mail program (it comes with the i-Mac) is downloading 7,133 e-mail messages dating from July 31. I’ve already received and deleted these messages, of course. What is going on? I haven’t done anything weird to my e-mail. Why is it being weird to me?
Update: It now says it’s downloading from 11,017 messages dating from July 30. I keep erasing; it keeps downloading the same messages. I tried changing my mail preferences to kill all messages on the server as soon as they’ve been downloaded; when I hit the “do it now” button, it crashes the mail program.
Update: Victory! My ISP killed all the e-mail, and the massacre seems to have worked. So far.
