That sounds right, but then its a corrupt .mbox file most likely.
the steps to diagnosis remain the same.

Oh.. you want me to make a new user account on her laptop! sorry.. i totally didn't read it like that.. I thought you wanted me to make a new mail account inside of the mail app preferences... that makes a LOT more sense... lemme give it a try and I should have results for you tomorrow

I have the same problem. Thank you for the help so far. I was able to create another user account as suggested, and Mail works fine there. But back in my own account the additional steps you suggest have not gotten around the freeze. I assume the ~/LibraryMail folder is the same as the Mail folder in the Library file--that is the one I deleted. If it another file instead, please clarify. Additionally, I can't locate the .mbox file. Can you give me some further help? Thanks in advance.
