I just got Mail working again after having the same problem on my 
PowerMac G4 (10.2.6).  I trashed the preferences and Mail is working 
again.  However, I lost all my rules, a POP email account, font 
settings, etc.  Very aggravating, but at least I don't have to get my 
mail via Internet anymore!
