    I have Mac G4 --- v:10.3.9
    I somehow erased last year when it was acting strange, thinking I could reload it.
    I decided to reload it again recently, so I used Pacifist to open the Jaguar disk (disk 1 install), opened the "essentials package" to find the mail application. Once I found it, I then extracted it to it's original location. is now sitting in Applications. There is no arrow-no file. Just the icon.
    When I click on it, it will not boot-did I forget something? Ha-

    Thanks for any input...
    P.S. here is my mail crash report:

    OS Version: 10.3.9 (Build 7W98)
    Report Version: 2

    Command: Mail
    Path: /Applications/
    Version: ??? (???)
    PID: 512
    Thread: Unknown

    Link (dyld) error:

    dyld: /Applications/ can't open library: /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Mail.framework/Versions/B/Mail (No such file or directory, errno = 2)

    You're running Panther but you got the Jaguar version of Mail? Replace it with the version from your Panther discs and you should be right. Then do a quick 10.3.9 combo update for fun's sake.
