Reply function not working in Mail

I just set up a new Mac Pro (Apple does such a great job of transferring data from the old (QS 867) to the new computer) and the reply function in Mail will not work. I've tried the icon, menu, and keyboard command and none of these work. I can send and receive email, just not reply to an existing email. Any ideas?

off the top of my head:

-make sure all system software updates have been applied
-repair permissions
-run applejack (search macupdate.com)

that's what I'd try. good luck.

Tried the first two. Downloaded applejack, but holding off on trying that until I'm ready to reboot.

When typing an email within Mail, it stops typing when i hit the space bar. I have to click on the text field of the email to get it to type again. Very frustrating.

I'd try rebooting next, then Safe boot (Shift key) but be patient - long startup.

I think I will just put an OUT OF ORDER
sticker on my head and call it a day.

Found the solution on the Apple discussion forum for Tiger Mail. Had to delete the Launch Services cache files and reboot. Apparently a problem with spell checker in Mails services was the culprit.
