How to Disable Email Attachment Previews in Mac OS X Mavericks Jim Tanous Read more February 21, 2014 A reader recently asked us about disabling the Mail attachment preview feature in OS X. Mac users know that Apple’s Mail app has long provided users with live in-line previews of attachments in email messages, such as images and PDFs.

Several Mac users have reported that the Mail app window just pops up randomly and for no reason. Are you also having this problem on your Mac? This short article explains how you can stop the Mail app from keep launching itself automatically while using the computer. This is an annoying problem because it will interrupt what you are doing.

Please try each step until your issue is fixed:

  1. On your Mac, open System Preferences (from the Apple menu at the top-left of the screen), or use Terminal.

2-Another change you you want to make is to disable the “Close windows when quitting an application” option. You can do that by going to System Preferences and click the General pane and the check the “Close windows when quitting an application” box.

3-Some Mac computers support a feature called “Power Nap”. If you enable this, you Mac will check for new mail messages (among other things) while it is asleep. You may want to disable this. Again not all Mac models support this feature. The following models support this:

  • MacBook (Early 2015 and later)
  • MacBook Air (Late 2010 and later)
  • MacBook Pro (all models with Retina display)
  • Mac mini (Late 2012 and later)
  • iMac (Late 2012 and later)
  • Mac Pro (Late 2013)
