I am running the latest Lion. It just did a software update which provided a firmware update.

Now when I launch Mail.app it crashes on start up. Specifically, the application window appears, and the "get mail" spinner spins, then it goes boom with the following details (can't provide full log because it's too long).

Any help is greatly appreciated.
