    Hi Nigel,


    Safe Boot, (holding Shift key down at bootup), run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions, reboot when it completes.


    If it still doesn't work...


    Open Console in Utilities & see if there are any clues or repeating messages when trying to open Mail.
