    I have just upgraded from OSX 10.3.9 to 10.4.11 and every time I try to recieve new mail, it crashes. When asked to reopen, it crashes again. Following this, I choose 'try again' button, and it prompts me to refill in my information. Once complete it again goes into a circle of crashing. Can anyone help me?

    Runing PPC G4 OSX 10.4.11 1.25GHz, 512MB ram.

    Do you have GrowlMail running? I think for awhile, if you had Safari 4 installed, it would make GrowlMail crash Mail when trying to display the contents of an e-mail in a notification. The workaround was just to have Growl notify you of a message without displaying its contents. However, Growl and GrowlMail have since been updated to fix the problem, so if this is what's causing it, try updating them.
