When I drag and drop an email to the Desktop it always moves to the top right (or the first free space near the top right). I want it to stay where I dropped it.
When I drag and drop a file from a Finder window to the desktop the file does drop where I place it.
This is with both Mojave and High Sierra and I do have "Sort by None" in the Desktop preferences.
How to I get Apple Mail to drop a message where I place it on the Desktop?
