Mail created w/ mountain Lion will not open in SL10.6.8, or OS X yosemite.

Mail created w/ mountain Lion will not open in SL10.6.8, or OS X yosemite.  How can I convert it to open?

After a second call to AppleCare, they had advised me differently than before.  Once they found out that my personal computer has Mac OS X Lion installed from the App Store, they suggested I simply upgrade my parents computer to Lion.
So, I used my download from the App Store and upgraded.  It went smoothly, but Mail still will not open properly.  And instead of the original error message, it comes up with this:
"Check with your developer to make sure Mail can work with your version of Mac OS X.  You may need to reinstall the application.  Check if there are any updates available for the application."
How can I re-install just Mail?  A startup disk is not accessible for me right now.  Can I download the latest version of Mail and install it from the Apple.com website?

  • Mountain Lion will not open Security & Privacy

    When I attempt to open Privacy & Security under System Preferences it just shows the "wait" disc and never opens.  I have to force quit System Preferences.

    Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Console in the page that opens.
    Make sure the title of the Console window is All Messages. If it isn't, select All Messages from the SYSTEM LOG QUERIES menu on the left.
    Click the Clear Display icon in the toolbar. Try the action that you're having trouble with again. Post any messages that appear in the Console window – the text, please, not a screenshot.

  • How do I import addresses from Address Book Ver 4.1.2 to the Lion Address Book version 7.0? Mountain Lion will not allow me to open Address book Version 4.1.2

    How do I import addresses from Address Book Ver 4.1.2 to the Lion Address Book version 7.0? Mountain Lion will not allow me to open Address book Version 4.1.2

    Do you have any addresses in the Lion version?
    If not, copy the AddressBook folder from your username/Library/Application Support/ folder on the old mac (or backup).
    Copy it to the same location on your new Mac, replacing the one that is there. Start Address Book in Mountain Lion and it should convert the files to the correct format.
    If you do have addresses, it is a little more complicated.
    First, create a Contacts Archive (from File>Export menu). This will be your backup.
    Next, export the current contacts as vCards.
    Then, follow the steps above.
    Then, import all the cards you exported. If you select all and double-click, it will ask if you want to add them. You'll then have to add them to whatever groups you had set up.

    You should be able to Save as: iWork 08, but i don't know how it works on Mountain Lion. On my Snow Leopard the Save as window has a part looking like this
    Or you can send me the document if you are in a hurry and I save it as iwork 08 for you. Click on my blue name and you'll find my address.

    Mountain Lion will not download. App just says "download" on purchase button, but nothing happens. Any ideas?

    My download took many many hours.  Not sure if that is because of our ISP or load on the network.  I also thought nothing was happening for my download.  Try this:
    Open App Store,
    click on Purchased
    You'll see Mountain Lion being downloaded and it will show the progress and estimated time to complete. 
    Take deep breaths and be patient.

    Try going to the web based site and see if you can set up a temporary folder there. Move anything you don't want to download to that folder.

    Mountain Lion will not download to my iMac, "The product distribution file could not be verified.  It may be damaged or was not signed."

    I have this problem also. I was able to download Mountain Lion to my daughter's Mac Mini without any trouble. However, I can't download this to my MacBook Pro. I have read other sites that suggest VirusBarrier is the problem and recommend turning it off in VirusBarrier>Preferences>Advanced. I have tried this and it still doesn't work, although some report that it has worked for them.

  • HT2404 Mountain Lion will not download through the apps store.  It shows up in Launchpad, but when the screensaver goes on and I enter my password and my desktop shows up, it has disappeared from launchpad.  I have set my energy saver controls appropriate

    Mountain lion will not download thru the apps store.  It has been purchased and redeemed.  I have set my energy settings appropriately so computer will not turn off during download as Verizon offers a connection that is very slow.  I have set the display to go to sleep (which I have set so I have to sign in again).  When I sign in again, Mountain Lion OSX has disappeared from the launchpad.  I have tried this several times.  I do have Norton Internet Security on my Mac Air.  I turned off the idle time scan on the Norton and tried again.  Same results.  Anyone?

    Ask anyone around here, and they will tell you quite differently. AV software will slow down your computer, can be incompatible with software you use, can cause kernel panics and other problems. It is unnecessay since OS X has it's own protection built-in. AV software can no more tell the difference between safe and unsafe sites on your browser than could an elephant.
    But, hey, who am I to argue with your tech person? Please, don't let me sway your opinion. How about a visit to:
    Helpful Links Regarding Malware Protection
    An excellent link to read is Tom Reed's Mac Malware Guide.
    Also, visit The XLab FAQs and read Detecting and avoiding malware and spyware.
    See these Apple articles:
              Mac OS X Snow Leopard and malware detection
              OS X Lion- Protect your Mac from malware
              OS X Mountain Lion- Protect your Mac from malware
              About file quarantine in OS X
    If you require anti-virus protection I recommend using VirusBarrier Express 1.1.6 or Dr.Web Light both from the App Store. They're both free, and since they're from the App Store, they won't destabilize the system. (Thank you to Thomas Reed for these recommendations.)

  • Mountain lion will not download to my MacBook

    Purchased Mountain Lion in the App store from my MacBook Pro (early '11 version).  All software was updated.  Would not download, instead got a window stating that the product distribution file could not be verified, it may be damaged or was not signed.  Tried to download it to my iMac and it worked just fine.  Also, after NEW updates on my MacBook, Safari will not open.

    What happens when you attempt the purchase?
    Error messages?
    Does your Mac meet all the requirements?

    Pages08 on my new MacBookPro/Lion will create new Pages08 docs but will not open Pages08 docs emailed from my iMac.
    There is something odd in this message.
    Even under Lion, Pages 08 is able to open Pages 08 documents created by Pages 09.
    I guess that the OP made a typo and that the docs were created as Pages 09 documents.
    In theory, the availability of iWork 08 on a machine is not supposed to disable the ability to buy Pages 09 thru the MAS because the iWork 08 registration scheme is not the same than the iWork 09 one.

  • Pdf file created in Word 2008 will not open in Acrobat 8.2.6 or any other Adobe program

    I have created a 12 page newsletter in Microsoft Word Publisher 2008 and have done so many times before with no problem. Today, I have tried to save it as a .pdf file both in Save As and through the printer. Each .pdf file created in Word will not open in Acrobat 8.2.6, Photoshop C3, Adobe Reader  nor any other Adobe software.
    When I go to open it in Acrobat, my Mac gives me the spinning rainbow. If I try to click on the file, I get a watch and then Acrobat crashes or I have to force quit the software. I really need to convert this file and get it to the printer. Any advice???
    Mac OS X 10.6.7
    Word 08 12.2.8
    Acrobat 8.2.6
    Adobe Reader 10.0.0

    Here is a better example.
    https://www.calcerts.com/PBR1.pdf
    is the original PDF file that is uploaded by a user.  Note that it is only 48kb in size.
    I take the file, add a couple of watermarks and a footer for each page as well as a small image on the last page, add security on it and BAM, the file:
    https://www.calcerts.com/PBR1_AFTER.pdf
    is now 1.5 MB and it takes a LONG time to print.
    Thoughts?
