I made a clean install of Lion, configured Mobile Me in System Preferences.
So, when I opened Mail, my Mobile Me account was already configured and it started downloading my mails.
Everything worked fine except search. I can't search among every mails. The only search I can do using is "from" or "to" a contact of my address book.
Searching the web, I discovered some potential solutions that I tried unsuccessfully. Here's a list of what I already done :
- repairing permissions
- disabling Spotlight and re-enabling Spotlight for my whole disk (via the preference pane & via the terminal)
- deleting the "envelope-index" file and get mail re-index all my mails
- rebuilding each mailboxes
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.mail.*in order to start over
- starting again from my
~/Library/Mailfolder from my Snow Leopard installation.
- starting again without configuring Mobile Me in system preferences but directly in Mail (as different computer user)
None of these actions fixed my problem.
Have you got any ideas?
I made a new clean install of Lion on an external hard drive, configured my Mobile Me account directly when opening Mail.app and everything worked fine. I tried to copy Mail.app-related files to my main installation of Lion, but that didn't work. My latest solution would be install Lion again on my internal hard drive, but I would prefer not to do so. I'm still hoping there's another solution.
