what version of OpenERP/Odoo are you running and what modules are installed? Have you updated the codebase recently? Please provide more information regarding your setup and the steps to reproduce the error so that others in the forum can help.

I update the codebase this morning because I thought it will help but obviously not.

The error occured after I changed some menu organisation in Group > Human Ressource/Employee to change the order of the inbox in the Messaging menu and to remove some unused menu of the mailbox (To: me, To do)

Yes the module Social Network (mail) is installed

Guess you haven't installed "mail" module...

either install it manually or specify as depends in  your custom module
