Inbox in Mail not working?

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
One day it just stopped working. I'm using Mail 1.2.5 (v552/553) on 10.2.8. I hate checking my email using .mac via the web. Anyone know how to fix this?

    You're going to have to post a few more details. Does Mail open? Are you not receiving incoming email? Can you send mail out? Or what?

    Mail opens fine and I can send out emails, but nothing shows up in my inbox as if I have no mail. Even when I click "Get Mail", nothing. I know that I do have mail though because when I go on .Mac, it shows a tons of new mail.

    check your servers.... thats gotta be the problem (the incoming server)

    Ok. I go to Mail > Perferences > Edit Account and it says .Mac for my incoming servers. The only thing that it lets me change is my password, which is correct.

    Are you remembering to delete your old mail from the server?

    If your mailbox is full that might be the problem - but I think that stops new new mail from arriving as well?

    check the place where it mentions incoming and outgoing servers.

    I've never setup a .mac account, but I've had this problem with regular email POP3 accounts.

    The main problem was the password encryption, there should be none by default.
