The Problem:

whenever you have an e-mail reminder set in one of your calendar entries iCal will launch Apple Mail to send you this reminder. Even-though you might not be using Apple Mail. This is especially annoying if you have never even opened or set-up mail and therefor have no e-mail accounts there. Luckily this behavior is modifiable trough Applescript.

See the accompanied blog post for why I made this.

How to install:

  1. Download the Mail.applescript file
  2. Make a back-up of : "/Applications/"
  3. Open the Mail.applescript file in "AppleScript Editor". It's pre-installed on OSX in: "/Applications/Utilities/"
  4. Click compile screenshot
  5. Rename the file to Mail.scpt and copy it to "/Applications/". Replace the file which is there.

Note: The Original.applescript is the original applescript file that came with Snow Leopard.


Major love to @dinh_viet_hoa for making Sparrow and of course the Apple Script interface
