At some point in time, I wanted Mail.app to launch on login/startup. At that time, I did something to ensure it loaded on login. Now, however, I do not want this to happen, mainly because I want to use the vacuum process to shrink my Mail.app footprint.
The problem is that I can not figure out how to stop Mail.app from launching on startup. The first place to always check is the login items in your user account settings, but Mail.app is not listed. The second place to look is in .profile or .bash_profile (right?), but no entry is there.
I suspect two possible locations:
- some *nix file about which I have forgotten or never known
- some other piece of software is launching
On this latter point, it could be my MailUnreadStatus plugin, but I do not think so.
