AAARRGGHHH, having a nightmare here.

Just out of the blue my mail program started having problems. when i load it up it just hangs, can't even force quit.

Safari also has problems, unexpectedly quitting when you launch it.

If I trash the safari plist file then it's the same again. If I trash the mail plist then it's ok but I lose my settings.


...the odd thing is that if I set up a new account on the macbook then I can import the same mail preference file and it's fine and safari is fine.

Is there some other plist that applies to both programs that I'm missing? Should I reinstall the OS?

My stats are:
macbook 1.83
768 ram
latest firmware etc
