Everytime I go to launch Mail it crashes with the following error

 

Thread 0 Crashed:: Dispatch queue: com.apple.main-thread

0   libsystem_c.dylib                  0x00007fff89dbb690 strlen + 16

 

This is really bad because I have discovered that iCloud does not have a number of folders that were supposedly on iCloud according to Mail and of course anything that was stored On My Mac is not there either.  I am presently using Postbox which is fine but not optimal since I use Mail otherwise.

 

I tried restoring Mail from Time Machine and that did not work, and all of the repair database instructions I can find are either out of date or require that Mail actually be running to work.  The problem is unique to my Mac Pro, my other Macs work fine.

 

The Mac Pro is my primary machine.  Is there a way to restore an old mail database and force it to rebuild?

 

Do I need to reinstall Mountain Lion?

 

Need some guidance friends.
