It doesn't seem to do anything.

Turn on the Activity window and see if it is actually doing anything. If you don't have any mail, it all happens pretty fast.

What Fred said. You'll not likely see any activity indication if Mail determines there's no e-mail to retrieve.

I don't even see a flicker in activity. Never have.

So, what are you saying? that you have never received mail? How often does Mail automatically check for mail for you? Mine is set for every 5 mins.

I have mine set for five minutes also. But if I'm expecting mail, I want it to actually check when I click the button. Maybe it is, but I don't think it has ever delivered an e-mail when I clicked that button.

Or watch your Modem activity light to see if it blinks when you select "Get Mail". It should blink a little bit when it checks the server for mail.

Send yourself an email. See if it arrives at an email address you get at via Mail.app.

You also might need to go to Mail>Mailbox>take all accounts online

My POP account thinks for a second, but my IMAP account checks mail pretty much instantaneously.
