Email… and Email to… will not work – SOLVED!

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

 

I am having difficulty getting Email... and Email to... to work. I'm using the default Mail app on Mac OS Mojave. I search for my file using Alfred, invoke the Action Menu and choose  Email... and nothing happens, outside of launching the Mail app is it was not currently running. The same thing happens if I use Email to... then pick a recipient. 

 

Any thoughts?

 

Bill

Latest Mac OS Mojave. Lates Alfred as well. 

 

Please avoid saying “latest”, and always say the exact version. When you say “latest” we don’t know if you mean the latest pre-release or stable version, nor do we know if you’re actually on the newest version. You may think you’re up to date but be mistaken, or might be a version behind because the auto-update hasn’t kicked yet, or we may not be on what we think is the latest version but isn’t, or a multitude of other reasons. It also does not help someone who comes later with the same issue, as they’ll have no idea if their version matches yours.

Sorry. I’m not at home at the moment and replied using my iPhone. I am visiting my dad who is ill in a hospice right now. 

 

I will follow up with the exact version numbers as soon as I am back home.

Mac OS 10.14.4 (Software update indicates that it is current)

Alfred 3.8.1

27 inch iMac Retina 5K, 3.8 GHz Intel Core i5 with 8 GB of Ram.

 

Restarting my system did not help.

@Bilbo63 Is Mail.app definitely set as your default Mail client?

 

It could be that you didn't allow access for Alfred to control Mail.app when macOS popped up the dialog to ask for permissions (it only ever does this once, the first time Alfred needs access). Could you open macOS Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Automation, and ensure that "Mail" is selected for Alfred 3?

 

Also, what happens when you use the 'email' command inside of Alfred.

 

Cheers,

Andrew

Andrew,

 

Good call! Email was, in fact, unchecked in the Automation section of the security settings. It works fine now.

 

Thanks for the help, Alfred really is a great app!
