    Hello fellow mac users. My first post here.

    I am running Leopard 10.5.1, and i would like to be able to automatically start the Mail application in hidden mode every time i boot up my computer, so it just runs in the background and checks for emails. I have added the Mail application under "login-items", and my problem is now that even though i have selected it to start in hidden mode, i still pops up every time i boot.

    I read somewhere that this was a bug back in Tiger as well, and that an Applescript had been written to fix it. But that fix doens't work in Leopard. Does anybody have a fix for this? It's very annoying.

    Odd that this is still an issue...Apple was well aware of it in Tiger.

    Anyway, here is an updated fix for Leopard.
