Apple Mail crashing after Mavericks install

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation
Advertisement
Can someone please advise - ever since I upgraded to Mavericks mail crashes. I open Mail (I have 2 apple mail accounts) and it loads my messages. As soon as I click on a message the app crashes. I've sent numerous reports and have to log in through Chrome or Safari which is really really annoying. Please help!!!
Also I don't want to go into Terminal - it makes me nervous - so if anyone has any other tips it would be great. Apple please do an update on this.

I picked up this hint from a similar thread which provides for a little releif.  I have three accounts: iCloud, personal Time Warner POP, business IMAP.  If I only have iCloud active everything is great.  If I try to make an additional account active ( doesn't matter whether it's the POP account or the IMAP ), the Viewer Window in Mail will become unresponsive.  [ Keep in Mind that Mail is still running, but you can't see it because everything has locked up.  It's almost as if your were clicking on a screen shot.  However, you can tell that Mail is still running because the menu's are still working.]
If I activate both my POP and IMAP, everything is great - - - - as long as I don't activate the iCloud account.  Since I get my iCloud mail on both my iPad and iPhone, I can live without it being on my MacBook until Apple gets a fix out.  Obviously, my business IMAP is most crucial for me.
Here's the procedure:  QUIT Mail.  Open System Preferences and click on the "Internet Accounts" preference pane.  Next, select each email account on the list and either uncheck the "Mail" icon box, or uncheck the "Enable this account" box. Do this for each account.  Close System Preferences.
Next:  Launch Mail.  You will see what looks like a standard mail account without any content.  No worries.  Select the "Mail" menu and choose "Preferences".  Click on the "Accounts" tab.  Click on each account and check the "Enable this account" box.  You will see your content reload.  You won't see your iCloud account in the list.  If all you want is iCloud mail, then DO NOT activate any of the other accounts and instead go back to System Preferences/Internet Accounts and check the Mail icon box for iCloud.
I only have two non-iCloud accounts, so I don't know what will happen if you have 3 or more accounts.  Let us know what you find out.
I am functional for now.  Things seem to be stabile for the moment.  I will let you know if things change.
