Fwd: what is the latest version of macOS Mail?

Mike Noonan-2
I’m at macOS 10.12.6.

I have macOS Mail Version 10.3 (3273).  is this the latest?  

If not, which update(s) did it come with?  

I recently ran the macosupdcombo10.12.6 updater.  Seemed small as is weighs in at = Disk Image - 1.98 GB  for a Combo.

Get Info of the Mail app shows Sharing and Permissions as:

  everyone Custom,         ?????  odd, no?
  system    Read/Write,
  staff         Read only,
  everyone Read only
  There is no entry for Mike (me) Read/Write    Is that correct?

In older forum threads, e.g. 2012, the suggestion was that Mail was not getting stalled on updates and retrying unsuccessfully.  Not much new info about latest Mail app.

Ideas , fixes welcomed.

TIA  Mike Noonan

Yes, at least until you update to macOS High Sierra.

If not, which update(s) did it come with?

Yes. Why would you want to be allowed to modify the application? That would be a huge security problem.

In older forum threads, e.g. 2012, the suggestion was that Mail was not getting stalled on updates and retrying unsuccessfully.  Not much new info about latest Mail app.

Fixes for what, exactly? Please be more detailed on exactly what you are seeing and with what e-mail accounts.
