Glad to know it's not me.
What really ticks me off is that when the smtp fails, it adds the 
mac.com smtp AGAIN which I have deleted at least a hundred times! Talk 
about trying to force you to use something, shades of mickeysoft.

For this "locked mailbox" make sure you have no duplicate accounts, 
trash all the associated mailboxes after you copy out any mail, and 
start over. I repaired permissions right before, then turned off mail 
pickup during, prayed to the mail gods and promised to sacrifice my 
first bor.....no just kidding! But I did add the mail in very carefully 
which is why I am answering this with it now on this machine and we 
shall see what happens.

Some of this stuff is a royal added pain in the butt.
