    Hello,

    Can someone please tell me how to stop my Macbook Pro from the "welcome to mail" guide popping up everytime I start the computer?

    I checked the "login items" and Mail is not listed. It must be a script somewhere but I cant find it...

    I think it started after I installed "Avast".

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I wonder if Avast is trying to scan your email when your system launches. Have you ever setup Mail.app on your Mac?

    Hmmm, you are probably right.

    I am new to Mac, finally making the switch away from Windows with a great sigh of relief...

    I had setup Mail in Mac to access one of my Gmail accounts and it began to download years of emails. Later I deleted the files in Mac Mail and went back to Gmail and found my inbox was empty. Long story short I thought I lost hundreds of legal documents out of my Gmail. So I deleted the account on Mac Mail, and was presented with the nag screen again.

    When I had this set up in windows it merely made duplicates in Outlook and left the files in the inbox on Gmail.

    On further research I found I still had the inbox files on the Gmail server in my Archive.

    Thanks, your suggestion caused the research. Now that I understand the process I have Mail back on my Mac.

    Mac Rules!
