My Mail.app has a message Compaction Error that comes up and then it unexpectedly quits.

I can't copy my Users/Library/Mailbox folder as I get an -128 error.

Obviously there is a corruption in there somewhere, I just can't find it.

I have done a /sbin/fsck - y and also run Nortons... and it still happens...

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to trubleshoot which mailbox is at fault.

Whenever I launch Mail I can't do anything beyond 5 seconds as it goes into the compaction error/quit cycle.... so... um.... help!
