I downloaded MailUpdate10.5.6.dmg but it won't install. Return me this error before installation:
enter image description here

any idea?
How can i reinstall Mail? It's possible?

thanks.


EDIT:

Rollback method:

I rollbacked to lion editing /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist file and changing 1.8 to 1.7.
After that i downloaded lion from app store (ALT+click) and reinstalled all.
I need only to rechange user and root password (reboot + cmd + r, utilities, terminal->resetpassword) and all works fine...

Discussion of Mountain Lion is off topic for this site as it is an NDA covered Beta, and your question whilst ostensibly about Lion is implicitley about what Mountain Lion has done to your Mail application/configuration and thus really also off topic.

The only advise I can give you is a generic "use your backup" answer, because I am sure you haven't really just thrown a Beta OS onto your primary machine without taking one, right?

@stuffle thanks. It's my test machine, not really important if mail won't works, but i won't know why... –  elpsk Mar 2 '12 at 9:53
    
I'd be interested to know how you reverted. Rollback is an odd term, are you implying you used Time Machine to back out an OS upgrade? –  stuffe Mar 2 '12 at 9:54

I am stuck in the same situation. Using Sparrow Mail lite for now. –  Vineet Bhatia Mar 5 '12 at 5:10
    
Restore /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/iLifeMediaBrowser.framework from a Time Machine backup older than when you installed Mountain Lion –  Vineet Bhatia Mar 10 '12 at 18:25
