    Hey experts...please help! For the second time my Pismo firewire (running 10.2.4) has decided to "overlap" files...and my mail icon only bounces when I attempt to open it. This happened with 10.2.3 and I ended up wiping everything out and starting from scratch....praying I won't have to do that this time...I ran Diskwarrior and it "repaired" the file 111 of them overlapped.......but mail still just bounces when I click on it.

    Any ideas?????

    thanks in advance

    overlapped files generally can't be recovered, the repair is just that it cleans up the mess. If the overlap was a file inside of your mail.app, you might have to reinstall it. Do you have a backup or CD, anywhere to obtain a copy of mail.app... your prefs should be saved for you...
