Reinstalling Mail.app?
Authored by: adriaant on Nov 14, '01 05:32:46PM

I mount my Applications partition into /Applications, which works well. The Installer recognizes the Applications partition. However, Apple made one major mistake in their installation procedure. They assume all their utilities and applications will be in the original locations. However, most people, incl. me, reorganize the Applications folder. So, yesterday, I moved the airport setup assistant to another folder and bam, software update assumed I did not upgrade to the latest airport! Duh.

Me too -- but it installed the new Mail.app as a folder -- it is not "blessed" or whatever magic is supposed to happen so it looks and acts like an app, not a folder. My old Mail.app (in the subfolder i moved it to) wasn't touched. Help! How do I get the new Mail.app to be a normal pkg/app?
