    Hi everyone,

    I wrote a very simple service via automator that allowed me to compose a new mail msg in any application using a keyboard shortcut.

    It used to work amazingly fast, but with time it seems to take quite a bit of time to get that new mail window to come up after using the keystroke. How can I fix it?

    I am thinking this is similar to what happens to my Dictionary app...about every 2 weeks on average, loading dictionary takes a LOOOng time (via typing in a word in spotlight). SO every 2 weeks or so I delete the plist file and it is good as new. Is there something like this I can do here?

    Also - either this seems to be a common theme with teh Mac OS (apps/etc slowing down with time), or I am doing something wrong...which is it?

    Thanks! I appreciate your time
