I've recently bought Hands Off (as part of a bundle) and I'm prompted to set permissions each time I open an application it doesn't "know" yet.

The past few days I've noticed all my Mail accounts are offline at launch - I set them Online, do a Get Mail, but no mail comes in, the offline triangles remain and the menu option has changed back to "Take Mailboxes Online". There's a variety of incoming mail servers but it affects them all, so it's not a mail server problem. Quitting Mail and relaunching doesn't solve the problem. I have to restart to clear it and then things are back to normal.

Yesterday, this didn't happen - Mail behaved as it should. I don't actually remember being prompted to set any Hands Off permissions yesterday, so I'm wondering if Hands Off could be the reason Mail is misbehaving?

By the way, permissions for Mail don't look like there's a problem. It only seems to be if I launch Mail after Hands Off has asked for permissions to be set for a different app.

This morning I launched Mail promptly, straight after launching Safari - no Hands Off, no problems.

Case proven? If so, I'm not sure what to do about it, except to zap Hands Off.

Update:

Yesterday Mail went from 'good' at launch, to 'offline' later in the day, without my setting any new Hands Off rules. :( And it was still offline at launch today until I rebooted.

I've now disabled all Hands Off rules (there seems no way to quit the application), but I'm not now convinced that was the cause. Anyone got any other ideas?

Not yet :| Apart from -

"To uninstall Hands Off! go in the Preferences window and under the Advanced tab, click on the Uninstall button. Then, simply move the application icon to the Trash"

Try that for a bit. Put it back if you want it back later.

I didn't uninstall Hands Off - I simply used its Preferences to 'Disable all rules'. Since then its icon has gone from the menubar, and Mail is working normally again. :)
