slow mac mail

by rmscharf1 / July 16, 2010 2:48 PM PDT

Some of my emails for sending may take a minute to three minutes or more to send. I have done the mailbox rebuild for each mailbox. I have done the index replacement including using the terminal window. Nothing works. I have a Mac Pro using 10.6.4. My email accounts are POP. Any suggestions?

I have FIOS as a provider and I do think that my actual speeds are less than promised. I plan to check with them.
