    I am not able to attach files to outgoing emails and incoming emails do not have attachments. Is there some way to restore iMail to correct whatever is wrong?

    I presume that you mean Mail. iMail is the name of a Windows-based mail server. It is also the name of a MacOS X email notification widget.

    As for your problem:
    • Which version MacOS X?
    • Which email provider?
    • Which ISP?
    • Have you used this email service on this ISP before?
    • What do you mean by "incoming emails do not have attachments"?
    • Have you done anything to Mail that makes you suspect that it needs to be "restored"?

    I am using Mail on my Macbook (Os X vs. 10.5.4). My ISP is a provider I've used for years, and the problem was happening on all of my email services which all download into Mail. I am able now to make and receive attachments again, however, now a blue Lego-block icon with question marks on it appears on every email with an attachment (incoming or outgoing). I also can't see outgoing attachments on mail that I send.

    Yes, I had adapted the Mail program by downloading a plug in call Mail Iconizer which is intended to help make attachments more user-friendly. Things were fine with that. However, I downloaded another program OMiC which was supposed to be able to open Office Contact files (I was trying to send myself some of my old contacts from my old PC & couldn't open the files). The OMiC didn't open the files, either, so I tried to uninstall it. After uninstalling it, the blue Lego-block icon appeared, and I've had problems with Mail ever since.

    I would be happy to reload the Mail program, but don't know how, and would I lose all current emails? I haven't back up the system on Time Machine since this all occurred so that I don't back up a bad set-up.

    I greatly appreciate whatever advice you may offer.
