Mail.app Crashes in OS X 10.3 Panther | December 4, 2003
I installed Panther a week or so ago and apart from a few teething problems everything was fine. However a couple of days ago I rebooted my iMac for the first time since my install and ever since then Mail.app has been playing up.
First off, after my reboot, junk mail filtering had stopped. This meant about 20+ spam emails started turning up in my in box every morning, something I wasn't really used to. Then I started to notice the app itself kept crashing when I tried to flag messages as junk.
After a bit of testing I trashed ~/Library/Mail/LSMMap and so far (fingers crossed) Mail seems to have stopped crashing. Now all I've got to do is spend the next couple of weeks retraining the junk filter.
