    Hi,
    I love OSX Mail, but 3x over the last 2 days, and twice today, I had to shut down Mail and restart. I attempted to change the font I was printing with and the font dialog box just stalled. I couldn't close, and I couldn't continue. Any thoughts about that, and also I've had to relaunch Finder twice in the past week. When ever I go to the desktop and see Finder as the open application, I get the beach ball. I can easily relaunch it, but it never happened before and I've had my Powerbook for 2.5 yrs now. I am using OSX 10.4.3.

    Thanks.

    Frank

    Are you getting the same issues in different accounts on the same Mac?

    As a start, I'd repair permissions from Disk Utility, run fsck and maybe try taking out any non-Apple RAM. :)

    I only have one account.

    >>As a start, I'd repair permissions from Disk Utility<<

    I do at the start of every month. I'll run it again just to be sure.

    ,>> run fsck <<

    What's that?? I've not heard of it, but I'll give it a shot.

    >>and maybe try taking out any non-Apple RAM.<<

    Everything is as I purchased it.

    Okay, good start there. Maybe make a new account from the System Preferences just to see if the problems carry through. :)
