Mail Upgrade message in Mavericks won't go away

Have upgraded from 10.8 to 10.9 Mavericks on my Macbook Pro, everything pretty much went fine, except for a problem with Mail.

Everytime I open it, I get the below screenshot, saying "Welcome to Mail. To use the new features in Mail, your Mail messages need to be downloaded to this computer...."

If I click continue, I get a "bing" sound and then my Mail opens up, but I get the same message each time I open Mail.


Has invited:

howapple - hello

Favor from:

I managed to stop the message more simply, by:

1. Open Mail

2. In Prefs>Accounts>Account information uncheck the "Enable this account" on all accounts

3. Quit Mail

4. Reopen Mail (no message appears)

5. Re-enable account in Prefs>Accounts>Account Information

6. Quit Mail

7. Re-open mail

Everything works ok and no message appears.

Hope it works for you too.
