    Since I upgraded to Mavericks, everytime I shutdown my macbook air 2013 I have that popup "The application mail cancelled shutdown". How to fix? I know I have to force it to quit but why if I let opened for example Safari, it makes no problem but mail does?! Thank you

    The easiest way to fix this is to close mail before shutting down.

    I'm on Mavericks and I've not incurred this, perhaps its problem with one of your email accounts. I noticed this occurring (on ML and Lion) when I had issues with one of my emails accounts.

    Try looking at the logs in Console. And test by disabling all but one account, quit, repeat.
