Mail still opens randomly....
My number one pet peeve from Snow Leopard is now back in Mountain Lion. I don't use OS X Mail. Something is triggering it to automatically open up... all the freaking time... sometimes it asks me to set up an account. Sometimes I think it's something from my calendar that triggers it. Any way to stop this from happening?

most email links (on websites, etc) will try to open Mail by default.
it's not a snow leopard or mountain lion issue.
you can change (in Mail preferences) your default reader...to something else.
what ARE you using for email? if you're doing it online, this is perfect...

I just opened Mail to check, and Sparrow is set as my default mail client. I use Sparrow for e-mail, and I'll continue to use it for sometime... of course, with google buying sparrow, sigh......

I think that the Calendar app is actually at fault.
I'm trying this...
look at the tip about calendar notifications.
I tried changing default mail client and a bunch of other stuff.
I hope this works.
I use gmail on the web and google cal as well.

it's def a calendar app thing.
I use "fantastical"
I made an entry in fantastical to send an alert and an email
I made another entry directly into google calendar
the fantastical entry(it puts the entry in the calendar program) queued mail to open
the gcal entry did not queue mail to open...
which sucks because i love fantastical.
that worked for me.

I talked with a support person named Kent at Flexbits (fantastical)
He suggested fooling with this file to fix...
because I don't know code, I just moved it out of the directory, but still no fix. BUT, inside the same folder is a "scripts" folder with mail.scpt in it. I moved that file too and all is as it should be.
no calendar.app opening mail.app
not sure of repercussions, but I can always put it back.

I had this same issue and fixed it by removing the apple mail from the notification center. To do this, open system preferences and click notifications. Remove the apple mail icon from the "In Notification Center" portion by unchecking the box "Show in Notification Center".

when I had this, it was down to some calendar entries set to email me a reminder when an event was due.
