Why does Apple Mail keep opening?

Posted:
in macOS edited January 2014
I used to use Apple's Mail program in the past but because of a lot of needs I have with many email addresses I switched to another program, Mozilla Thunderbird. I have used it for a couple years and I never open Apple Mail.

Approximately a month ago Apple Mail started opening. I don't quite know for sure when it opens but I come to my computer to see it open but have never opened it and I simply close it to find it open the next day. I think it may have happened after one of the OS X updates but not the latest 10.6.8



I know it's not a computer specific issue since I have 3 Mac's and every one of them is doing this. Does anyone know what could be causing OS X to open Apple Mail? Is there a way I can stop it from doing this? I don't want to remove the Apple Mail program since it may cause additional issues.



Thank you for your help.

    Along these lines check to see if any of your other applications are sending any email alerts, alarms or notifications.
