On my 17'' MBP I want to reinstall the Mac Mail, is there anyway to only install Mail without reinstalling the whole OS?
Ahh...the basic help from MJ. He helps lots of people on these forums. Be grateful.mad jew said:Pacifist is great, but before you do that find a file named com.apple.mail.plist and drag it to the Desktop. In most cases, this has the same effect as reinstalling an app. Since Mail is quite integrated within the system, fully reinstalling it may be more problematic than it sounds.
Why do you want to reinstall it? Have you tried opening it up in a new user account to see if whatever problems you're having carry over?
