OK, so I get this kernel panic again and when I restarted my machine I try to open mail and get this message even though I had no problem with mail before:

"Mail cannot update your mailboxes because your home direstory is full. You must free up space in your home folder before using Mail. Delete unneeded documents or move documents to another volume."

The only option it gives me is to quit mail.

Somebody PLEASE HELP ME!!! How do I fix this???

Well... it sounds like you need to free-up some HD space. Is your machine filled with Movies/music/pictures/etc??

Your Home directory is your "Home" folder, or User folder...

Have you repaired permissions?

I don't think so. I got this weird kernel panic (mac mail was open at the time though my screen saver was on) and had to restart then when I restarted it wouldn't let me open mail...

Would that matter? How can I fix it?

Do you have your install DVD/CD that came with the machine? When you had that KP something got corrupted that is affecting mail. Try booting with the install DVD and run Disk Utility from there and click on the hard drive and click Repair. You boot holding down the "C" key.

See if that helps.

OK, I'll try that when I get home from work tonight. I really hope this works.

It's pathetic how bad I need mac mail to work.
