View Full Version : Mail Crashing

23rd March 2009, 03:54 PM
Hi there,

I have had problems with my Mail app.

Every time I get new mail, mail crashes and asks me to reboot the application. Everything else works fine except for when I download a message.. then it freezes.

Anyone know why this is?

Try here Mail crashes on startup (http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1945913&tstart=0) also there might be other earlier entries I did not check.

There have been other threads about this (I don't have time right now to find them). If you have Safari 4 Beta installed, it is most likely GrowlMail that is causing this. To disable it, as soon as mail starts set it to Offline mode, disable Growl in your preferences, then set it back to Online.

If you don't have the Safari 4 Beta then others might have ideas.

Thanks for that, we'll see if that works. And yeah I am using Safari 4.
