    Still trying to resolve issues between unix mail and Mail.app.
    I can't figure a workaround for:

    7/28/12 2:24:54.961 PM sandboxd[39878]: ([39147]) Mail(39147) deny
    file-read-data /Library/Preferences/com.apple.mail.plist

    Can anyone offer a suggestion?

    what does

    ls -l -e /Library/Preferences/com.apple.mail.plist say ?

    ( the -e shows the ACLs that may prevent you from accessing the file)


    Also, that file should perhaps be in
    ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.mail.plist

    (part of your own directory structure instead of the system's)

    Note that on my system, this file exists neither in the /Library nor
    ~/Library


    It is included in some of the /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks ,
    somwehere I would not be looking for.

    I checked for ACLs, there are none. I finally renamed the file and that
    error went away.

    I don't think so; it was created by some version of Mac OS X

    Does sandboxing depend on ACLs? I thought it worked by applications
    declaring the resources that they need access to.
