    Hi guys,

    I have set up mail to start when I start leopard, is it possible to make it start minimized? (I looked at the preferences but could not start this option) :confused:

    TIA

    Applescript is probably the best bet for things like this.

    Hi Cromulent,

    And many thanks for your reply.

    Could you explain how to do this with Applescript? :confused:

    TIA

    Not specifically no. Although I doubt it is that hard to pick up, Applescript is a very English like language. I just have not had the time to explore it properly what with my other commitments.

    You could take a look over at www.macosxhints.com and see if anyone has written a hint about it. That site is very useful for questions such as these.

    Could you not just hide Mail when it starts up? A bit easier to do and it just sits there in your dock, running but not open.
