Hi,

I don't have it set to open on start up and it doesn't. But during my sessions, OSX Mail just opens up, seems to send some mail (I hear the swoosh) and it downloads my mail. Why????

>>What apps are running when this happens? What're you doing with your machine at the time? <<

I have the following open: Firefox, OSX Calendar,Excel, Preview (printed out some stuff earlier) and that's it. The arrow is under FInder and Dashboard on the Dock, but I haven't had Dashboard open today.

Clicking on certain links in Firefox (and Excel for that matter, although it's far less likely) could open Mail but it wouldn't send anything. What widgets do you run? Do you have any iCal alarms? :)

Ahhh, it's sending Calendar alarms. I guess that may trigger it to open so that it can send. Maybe I should just have it create an on screen alarm. I don't use Mail. I use GMail from Firefox. So when Mail opens, it downloads a ton of stuff.

I usually set my iCal alarms to send a message with sound. Lately, I've had it alert me via e-mail. I wonder if that is what is triggering the e-mail, and OSX Mail to open spontaneously.
