Hi guys,

My Mail.app keeps crashing on launch, it's really weird. If I delete all of the Mail information from within my user Library/Apploication Data folder then reset my account and everything when I open it and it works for a day or two then just starts freezing again. I seem to ahve misp.aCED MY MBP install CDs, and everyone I know with a mac only has PPC ones, so I can't reinstall it. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Far away from Earth.
Was it actually crashing or a constant spinning beachball? If it was all I done was remove the com.apple.mail.plist fire up mail close it and put the *.plist back and its been working since.

Yeah it was just constantly beachballing... Then it would get (this program is not responding) or something added to the end of the name in the force quit dialog. I deleted the .plist and it seems to be working (at least at the moment). Thanks.
