Hi,

Since I updated to 10.6.6 I can no longer open my mail application. I get a message stating that "You have version 4.3 (1081/1082) of mail. It can not be used with the Mac OS X Version 10.6.6."

When I was updating my mail was not in the application folder but within a separate folder in the app folder, so it may not have been updated.

Now my question is how do I solve this, I can't work properly without the mail application!

Thank you!
Svanton

Mail is now at 4.4

To try to solve this, I would be putting Mail back where it belongs (applications) without an enclosing folder, and download the 10.6.6 combo update.

As 6 string states, download the combo updater and run that. Maybe moving it from the expected position has caused the updater to think Mail is not installed?

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

Odds are the dock shortcut to Mail is pointing to the old version. The new version is most likely in the Applications folder already. Open Applications, double click it and see if it opens correctly. If so, drag the mail icon off the dock and let it "poof" and replace it with the new version from the Applications folder.
