I've not ever wanted to use the Mail app on my Mavericks machine, but recently I decided I'd give it a shot. However when I went to Applications in Finder, I couldn't see it. Nor was it in ~/Applications (which is completely empty anyway).
When I did a search from Terminal (
find . -iname Mail.app), I discover that it is in the /Applications folder after all.
I checked the permissions, but have never seen the "@" before:
drwxr-xr-x@ 3 XXXX admin 102 21 Feb 2014 MacX Free AVI Video Converter.app/ drwxr-xr-x@ 3 root wheel 102 16 Jul 2014 Mail.app/ drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 16 Jul 2014 Maps.app/
The only way I could seem to open it was via Terminal (
Does anyone have any idea on why it might not be visible in Finder?
Note: The app itself is running fine after opening from Terminal... & I've since marked it as "Keep in Dock".
Many thanks, Craig.
