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!
