    I am the only one unhappy with Mail application here? It was sluggish before, but after installing Snow Leopard it is not working at all.

    "*** Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'adding a feed', reason: 'adding a feed'"

    So far it's working relatively fine here with Gmail IMAP as my only account. I did have to kill the process a while back though, for it was using 20% CPU for no apparent reason.

    My mail is working fine, however when receiving new mail the Mail Activity Window will show the first couple of dozen characters of the subject line fine, but the remaining characters will look like gibberish.

    I think that it did the same thing under Leopard and is a Mail bug that apparently didn't get fixed during the update.

    I am having the same problem as davidIt and MacSamurai. Have not been able to successfully launch Mail since installing SL.

    my mail is working fine, all 7 of my email accounts.

    only gripe is that my notes are listed in the inbox as well whereas they were their own thing separate from emails in the previous version

    Mail Preferences > Accounts > Mailbox Behaviors > Notes > Untick "Show notes in inbox". That should fix it.

    SL Mail

    Mail works just fine for IMAC accounts, but hangs when trying to Fetch from POP accounts. Trashing the Address Book provided a temporary fix, but problem re-occurs when AB re-added. BTW, I also trashed ALL Groups in AB!:mad:

    OMG THANK YOU SO MUCH! I was going nuts! It wasn't like that before and I checked all the preferences, I just didn't look in the right place. Thanks.

    Not only is Mail not working, there is no iCal in my Applications folder. I've tried re-installing Snow Leopard numerous times but each time it either tells me that my disk needs cleaning (which I've done) or that it can't copy the necessary support files.

    However, one interesting thing I discovered doing this was that if you have Snow Leopard already installed and start the Mac OS X Installer, once you type in your admin password it starts installing straight away (i.e. from the desktop) without rebooting from the DVD. However, each time it tries to do this I get one of the messages I listed above. I also get one of those messages if I try installing while booted from the DVD.
