TS1572 you can use this version of the application mail with this version of mac osx

Cannot use this version" alert appears when opening application mail with this version of mac OS X, we seem to have lost our mail and now we get this message.

Make sure the 4.5 only is in the /Applications folder alone and not inside any enclosing folder, then run the update again. /Applications is inside the main Macintosh HD folder, not in your Home Folder, if you even have one there. Move the other Mail to the Trash for now, but don't empty it yet.
Link for the update.

If that doesn't work, move both Mails to the Trash (don't empty yet) and run both updates, the 10.6.8 Combo update (the link for that is in the Apple article) and then the Security update again.

  • Got message... you can't use this version of the application mail with this version of Max OS X, after i upgraded operating system to MAC OSA X Snow leopard.  How do I get my Mail?

    Hi ...just upgraded my Macbook pro to Mac OSX snow leopard and when I tried to look at my mail, I got this message "You can't use this version of the application mail with this version of MAC OS X".  What do I do now to look at my mail and receive new mail?

    After updating make sure you repair permissions and restart your computer.

  • You can't use this version of the application Mail with this version of Mac

    I just installed 10.6 and all seemed well until I tried to load Mail. I got this response
    "You can't use this version of the application Mail with this version of Mac You have Mail 3.5".
    I successfully reinstalled 10.6 and I also reloaded the apps that were contained in another folder on the CD. I get the same message every time I try to load the Mail program. I deleted the "mail plist" file and that did not work. So I recovered my old one from Time Machine. Still dead!
    My poor wife is so frustrated that she is now using my machine!!! HELP PLEASE!

    I successfully reinstalled 10.6 and I also reloaded the apps that were contained in another folder on the CD.
    Why would you "reload" any apps? They should have been installed when you installed 10.6. Where exactly did you reload them from?
    So I recovered my old one from Time Machine.
    ...which undoubtedly still contained the old copy of Mail from your last Leopard backup, and not the current version of Mail that should have been installed with 10.6.
    What you need to do is reinstall the appropriate version of Mail from your Snow Leopard install disk. You can install one specific program from the install disk using [Pacifist|http://www.charlessoft.com> - though, check carefully to make sure it's been cleared for use with the Snow Leopard install disk!
    Whether that will fix your problem or not, I don't know, as I don't know what exactly you've done. It sounds like you've done a lot of things you should not have done, mixing components of your older system into your newer system. It is entirely possible you will need to reinstall the entire system.

  • I've lost half of my icons such as calculator, fonts, chess, automator,ichat,ical it it saying that you can use this version with the OSX.  You have version 4.04. And, there is no way to update them.  What do you do?

    If I'm understanding you correctly, those apps have stopped working and you are getting a message saying that they won't work with this version of Mac OS X when you try to open them. Is that right? If so, have you moved those apps out of their original locations? That is a bad idea, as it prevents them from being properly updated. If this is what has happened, what version of the system were you running before they stopped working, and what version are you running now, after installing the update that has made them stop working?

  • "You cannot use this version of the application Mail with this version...

    I recently needed to replace my hard drive and now when I try to open the Mail application I get the following message: "You cannot use this version of the application Mail with this version of Mac OS X."
    Any help is appreciated.

    ANSWERING MY OWN POST:
    I have tried reinstalling Mail from my Snow Leopard upgrade disk directly and tried it using Pacifist. Neither worked because both simply reinstalled version 4.0. Fortunately, I have a MacBook Pro and it has version 4.1. I copied this directly, which was not ideal (it was quite confused about my mailboxes), but it worked.
    The problem is that +Software Update+ did not detect the old version of Mail and Apple does not provide a direct way (that I could find) of downloading the latest version. Each time I downloaded Mail from Apple, it was version 4.0.

  • You cannot use this version of the application Mail with this version OSX

    I just installed 10.5.8 (9L30) via Software Update and now my Mail doesn't work. Instead, I get a dialog box that says "You cannot use this version of the application Mail with this version of Mac OS X." When I run it out of Terminal from /Applications/Mail.app/Contents/MacOS/Mail it runs fine, even though it is Version 3.5 (which is what shows up when I do Get Info on the Mail application in the Applications folder). This is really poor, Apple. This is basic stuff -when you upgrade the OS you have to make sure all the Apps work. How are you going to fix this?

    Apple obviously are stupid enough to release an update that broke mail..
    Then how do you explain all the people saying they've had no problems with the update? (Oh, and "Apple are"???)
    Not everyone had the problem. Good for them. More than one person had the problem - and perhaps even more will experience it. That means there is a hole in the update process - i.e. something does not work properly in all situations. Apple is not God - they stuff up sometimes, innit? Stop defending them.
    No matter whether you use a Mac or Windows machine, you need to do some basic maintenance from time to time to keep things working smoothly. Macs, overall, tend to need less, but you still need to check the hard drive from time to time, and you definitely never want to install an OS update if there's a chance you've got hard drive problems.
    So if that's the case, why design an "automatic" Software Update utility that does not do a check of HD integrity if it is so vital to do such a check before installing an OS upgrade? Does that make any sense? Where do Apple recommend such a check prior to installing an OS upgrade? It's not immediately obvious do the average user. Apple have gone out of their way to make claims like "you never have to defrag a Mac". They don't mention anything about HD checks. If it's so fundamental, why not? Is it unreasonable to think that a company that prides itself on good design would think of this?
    Thank you for the link for the consolidated update. That fixed it - except that it should have worked first go from the auto updater.

  • You cannot use this version of the application Mail with this version of Ma

    My hardrive died so I got it replaced and since I bought my macbook on ebay I have no Installation discs so got a friend to install leopard - everything so far seems ok but when I click Mail this comes up -'You cannot use this version of the application Mail with this version of Mac OS X.'. Any ideas? Ive ran software update and its all up to scratch..

    Greetings,
    You seem to have a conflict somewhere, and it looks like you have a prior version of Mail that doesn't work with Leopard, along with the Leopard version of Mail. What version was on the Mac when you bought it, and where did the version of Leopard come from, exactly (was it a retail boxed version, or a version that shipped with another model of laptop)? Be very specific, as it does make a difference.

  • HT5030 whem installing itunes i get this message "this installation package could not be opened. Verifiy that the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid windows installer package"

    whem installing itunes on my mums new computer which is windows 7 i get this message everytime "this installation package could not be opened. Verifiy that the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid windows installer package"

    Let's check your Windows system.
    1.  Have you done all the important windows updates and service Packs on your system.  If not do it now.  START button, type in Windows Update and ENTER.  Select 'CHECK FOR UPDATES'
    2.  Let's check your Windows system files for possible file corruption
    SCAN and repair possible Windows system file corruption:
    Go to command prompt (START/ALL PROGRAMS/ACCESSORIES right mouse click "command prompt" and choose "Run as Administrator"
    type in
    sfc /scannow
    let Windows fix any system files that need to be repaired.
    Restart the computer if it did actually repair any files.
    3.  Check your system for possible Malware.  But you have to do it in WIndows Safe Mode.
    Start your computer in "Safe mode with networking", go to this link download a free version of Malwarebyte.
    http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free
    Install and perform update immediately, then do a full SCAN. Remove malware if it indeed finds any. Restart computer to regular windows to let Malwarebyte complete the removal.
    To start your computer in safe mode
    Press and hold the F8 key as your computer starts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you'll need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.
    On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight the "safe mode with networking" option, and then press Enter. Log on to your computer with a user account that has administrator rights.
    When your computer is in safe mode, you'll see the words Safe Mode in the corners of your screen. To exit safe mode, restart your computer and let Windows start normally.

    Hi,
    Firstly make sure you save it to your hard disk, and then run setup from there.
    If it doesn't help, you may also try to unregister Windows Installer, and then reregister Windows Installer and check if it helps. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Press Windows Key + R
    2. In the "run" box, type "msiexec /unreg", and then press ENTER.
    3. Press Windows Key + R
    4. In the "run" box, type "msiexec /regserver", and then press ENTER.
    Besides that, You could try to create a new user to download and install the application.
