"Mail update for 10.5.6"

December 23, 2008  |  By Daniel Reiss

 |  Version: Apple Mail Server Update


This review was originally posted on
Resolves the most obvious problem and intractable problem with the 10.5.6. update - Mail would crash when it encountered a PDF attachment or a graphical file attachment; e.g., tiff, png, jpeg etc.

I tried a number of work-arounds, including reinstalling Mail from the install DVD, deleting 3rd party mail plugins, deleting Mail prefs etc. None worked until this.

Even if you have not experienced any of the problems described above, you should install this fix.

What's new in version Update
This update addresses stability issues with Mail.

After updating to Mac OS X 10.5.6, Mail may unexpectedly quit. This can be caused by using a copy of Mail that wasn't updated properly (you may need to install the Mail Update).
