    For the first time ever, I'm experiencing problems w/ the Mail app. When I try to open it, I see the blue line in the Mail Activity window, but it stops about 1/3 of the way and Mail crashes. Same thing the 2nd time except the blue line indicates 2/3 of incoming mail has been loaded then it crashes again. Third time seems to be the charm.

    Maybe totally unrelated but it started happening after I sent a file that was just a bit too big for a Hotmail Inbox. So I received 5-6 error messages from these friends' Hotmail admin.

    Thanks for your help.

    Do you have any 3rd-party plugins for Mail? If you do, and this happened after installing the 10.5.7 update (which updated Mail), it may be because one of your plugins is incompatible with Mail now.

    Thank u so much 4 your help. Really appreciated. Yes indeed, the Growl Mail Plug-in in my bundles folder seemed to be the one doing the damage.
