But I am worried: Could the stupidity and ignorance have been mine?
Last Friday, Mac's Mail went bonkers on me. It started creating copies
of a file in the draft folder at a high rate and then it would "quit
unexpectedly". Nothing but force quit could stop it. I tried six or
seven times and duly reported to Apple but then gave up and reverted to
Mozilla mail, losing all my mail.
I started Mail once more on Monday night to see if I could salvage
something I needed. Same thing.
I hope this is only a coincidence.
If not, I apologize to all.
