I am experiencing a problem with Apple Mail. It times out every 30 minutes or so with a message stating unable to connect to server, I just click the message and it starts receiving ok. Sometimes when I send it hangs and will not send until I quit and reopen the program. I ran the Mail connection doctor and it checked out ok. Would an upgrade to 10.6 take care of this? I'm not sure about this as everything else works ok and I hate to upgrade because other problems might crop up.

If you're on an Intel Mac, you should have upgraded to Snow Leopard long ago, and you are going to get into hot water if you don't grab a copy of Snow Leopard while it is still available.

I have no idea if it will solve the problem or not, but anyone who is on a Core 2 Duo Intel Mac and hasn't yet upgraded to Snow Leopard needs to do so QUICKLY, as already being on SL is the *only* path to getting Lion and all future updates.

I am on Snow Leopard10.6.7 and it will do the same thing whee I try to send messages intermittently (maybe once or twice a week). I close mail and restart, send the draft and it is ok.
