I have just reinstalled OSX 10.8 from scratch and then put DEVONagent back on, which worked just fine on the last installation on this 11in Macbook Air.
I went through the preferences to set them up the way I like it and I was unable to access the “Email” pane. I can click on the other seven tabs and work on the panes just fine, but when I select “Email” the icon on the running bar darkens to show it is selected, but the pane itself remain displaying the last viewed settings.
It was fine this morning, I could select and change the settings on this tab prior to reinstalling the OS. Absolutly everything is running on this machine much better for this long overdue clean out , except this one tab in the DEVONagent settings.
Any thoughts on why I should be barred from accessing the pane?
Makes me wonder, what’s going on there, because for me that tab doesn’t work either - not with my main user and a complete reboot including fsck, repairing privileges and deleting system and user caches didn’t help. Taking out all existing preferences for DEVONagent as well as installing a fresh copy didn’t help either.
Even a safe boot and testing this with a complete new user account with no old preferences made no difference.
I noticed, that when the tab is accessed for the first time, OS 10.8 asks me to allow DEVONagent to access my contacts. I did. It doesn’t ask a second time, when I deactivate this in System Preferences > Security & Privacy. So one should ensure, that DEVONagent is allowed to access the contacts and that his card in the Contacts.app is defined as his card. (menu bar > card > make this my card) But that is also fine here.
(DEVONagent Pro 3.5.1, OS10.8.4)
Is anything logged to Applications > Utilities > Console.app > All Messages after trying to select the Email pane?
