AppleScript application launches Mail in a hidden state.

Overview

HiddenMail ... With the release of Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, Apple Mail no longer respects the user's 'Hide at Login' setting. To work around this problem, use this simple AppleScript application to launch Apple Mail in a hidden state. It is intended to be set as one of your Login Items.

Why wouldn't you just select Mail as a startup item and check the 'hidden' box? That's what I do for iCal. No AppleScript necessary.

HiddenMail 1.0 appears to no longer work with the OS X v10.4.7 update. Mail is launched at login but is no longer hidden. Anyone else encounter the same problem after upgrading to 10.4.7?

Maybe you could post the script. I got the same startup problem with netnewswire and would like to change the programname you call in the script. That would be nice.

Thanks for downloading! Tiger Mail.app doesn't respect the 'hide' setting.

For some reason, Mail doesn't launch hidden even with the checkbox checked in accounts since Tiger (10.4).
