    I have found out that there are certain messages that cause Mail to "quit unexpectedly". I forward a PGA newsletter from work to home (because I keep forgetting this) and every time I even select the message...boom! crash time. You might want to see if there is a certain message at the top of your incoming mail that is selected when you launch mail. You should also try to use a different mail app to get you mail and sort through it first, deleting any junk and unwanted mail then go back to "Mail" and see if the problem persists. Next I would call your ISP and see if they can see the messages on their server and maybe delete them from there, before you attempt to download.

    Hope this helps.
