Screwed up my Mail.app
Authored by: MacOSXAddict on Jun 09, '06 04:51:52AM

I installed the bundle, ran the console commands, now when I start the mail app the message window dows not apear (I have to go to the menu to make it appear). and I cannot normally quit the mail app. I have to do a force quit. Even when I try to log out, if I don't force quit the app it comes back saying cannot logout mail.app is preventing it.

Can anyone explain to me how to re-install the mail.app?

I have MacOSX 10.4.6 and the latest versions available of all applications.

Thanks

No need to reinstall Mail. Just remove the items in the plug-ins folder, and it should be fine. The Terminal commands are fine to leave as is; no need to undo them.

Been there, tried that, didn't work. Mail still comes up without the message frame, and only allows force quiting, not regular quit

Bob, is your Mail still screwed, or did you find the help you needed?
