    I've upgraded Tiger to Leopard, and the only thing that doesn't work is Mail.
    Everytime I start Mail on Leopard, all the menu options (File, Edit, View, ...) come up, but the rest just doesn't... And if i afterwards want to quit Mail, it's stuck and I have to use force quit.

    Go to ~/Library/Preferences (that ~ means your user account) and delete "com.apple.mail.plist"; then restart Mail if you haven't quit it already.

    The next launch will be a fresh one. You'll have to re-enter all your preferences and you may have to re-import your mail from ~/Library/Mail, but it does the trick.

    It's one of the upgrade bugs. Same thing happened to my sister.

    I've heard that re-installing 10.5.6 via the Combo update also works, but this is the method I used.
