I installed Snow Leopard in my late 2006 iMac yesterday. It has gone through all of its updates now. When I try to open Mail it gives me the error message, "You can't use this version of the application with this version of Mac OS X. You have 3.6."

I would have thought that the install would have installed the appropriate version of Mail, but something's up. Suggestions?
