Here is an AppleScript that will check if Mail is running & quit it if so.

tell application "Finder"
	if exists application process "Mail" then
		tell application "Mail" to quit
	end if
end tell

Just replace "Mail" witht he name of your app and it should work for
anything. The check is necessary because a "tell" will open the app
first before doing the rest, which you don't want if you are only
trying to quit it anyway.
