Mac Tip: Improve the speed of Mac Mail

It’s that time of year, when I attempt to ‘tweak’ my systems for better organization. So here’s another mac tip, in case this is part of your organizational plan as well. This tip improves the performance of Mac Mail by rebuilding the Address Book database. It’s very simple.

– quit Mac Mail
– quit Address Book
– delete the Address Book database file (in your user folder) ~/Library/Application Support/AddressBook/AddressBook-v22.abcddb
– restart Address Book (this will force Address Book to rebuild its database)
– restart Mail

That’s it!
