I wonder which message you answered to, when creating your message.  
Digest? Ironically enough, Apple's Mail considers your message as  
belonging to the thread "New thread ?"

The log indicates dvips failed to generate a PS file and the whole  
process stopped (ie, ps2pdf wasn't launched to convert the PS file to  
PDF). The PDF you're seeing must be the remaining PDF from when you  
used pdfTeX.

So it seems you've got to convert the PNG files to EPS first. convert  
(one component of ImageMagick, included in MacTeX) allows to do this,  
in a straightforward enough way. In Terminal:

convert image-file.png image-file.eps
