Apple Releases Fix for Crashing Mail App Under OS X 10.5.6

Apple on Monday released an update to its Mail e-mail client, designed to fix crashing problems experienced after updating to OS X 10.5.6.

Mail Update 1.0 addresses a problem where a copy of Mail that wasn't properly updated while installing the 10.5.6 update unexpectedly quits. For those who have installed 10.5.6 and whose copy of Mail doesn't show a version number of 3.5 (930.3), the update should show up in OS X's Software Update mechanism.

If you have the proper version number and still are experiencing crashes, Apple suggests updating or removing third-party plug-ins, which may be causing the crashing problems.
