Mac OS X Mail application starts unexpectedly

Updates: Reason has been found here.

The Mail app started itself unexpectedly just now (2009-02-08 at 1:15 am). I remember this is the second time in 24 hours. Generally, if any mail application starts, it means a email link has been clicked to trigger it, or something strange behind the scene is using it.  I did not set any account in Mail. The application just notifies me to setup one when it starts. Good side is nothing to lease out. Bad side is I’m not sure what is going on. So I put a note here to remind when it happens again. It is said that Mac OS X is a very safe operating system. I hope it’s not a virus but a mis-clicking on email link by myself. – Update on 2009-02-13 at 0:00 The mail application started itself again. – Update on 2009-02-13 at 23:51 Started again. – Update on 2009-02-16 at 0:02 Again 2/13/09 12:00:03 AM Mail[1674] DeliveryAccounts are missing.

  1. There have been quite a few earthquakes in Cali as of recent. One thing that I still don’t understand is how they are trying to say that this is all usual. Let’s face the facts, have we had this sort of problem in the past? Maybe but the fact is that they are for sure not as many nor as major as the ones like Haiti and other felt around the world. I’m not beginning to question just what exactly has caused this many earthquakes as of recent? I’m wondering your ideas on this subject?

    The same thing is happening to me. I haven’t set up an email in macmail and it is annoying.
