I hope this hasn't been covered too many times, I hate posting when something has already been covered. I did a couple searches, and came up dry.

I have mail open, and quit before I shutdown. Then when I push the shutdown under the apple menu, my mail app opens automatically and a logout error occurs that says mail has interuppted shutdown. I have tried this with both automatic login of mail on and off in my user account. The only way I can shutdown is by manually pushing the powerbutton on my machine.

Anyone else have this problem? im running tiger 10.4.2

Thanks!

Do you wait for Mail to be fully closed before shutting down? Is the little black triangle still under the icon in the dock?
Also, do you have any mail widgets? It's possible that one of them is forcing mail to relaunch.

And for reference, you almost never need to shut down your Mac. Simply put it to sleep instead.

Yes, I do wait for it to completly shut down. I do have mail widgets, and I bet that is the problem. I never shut down, but since I live in Nevada and it gets so darn hot, my energy bill was $143 this month due to my air always on. So i'm leaving it off during the day, and don't want my Mac on when it is so hot.

Same problem here...

I haven't been able to put it to sleep because it says my mail application canceled restart. I don't have any mail widgets that I'm aware of since I've never been able to send an email through the program. I used to be able to receive mail in the beginning but not send it so I just stopped messing with it altogether. Now I have a software update that requires a restart and I can't get it to go through. Yes, I'm a total noob so I appreciate any suggestions. Thank you in advance!
