Thank you for the replies. I knew about the 'minimum' Lion (10.7.x) or, in this case, M-Lion (10.8.x) issue, which is why I partitioned the HD, in the hope that I might bypass the block.

Sorry, that Subject doesn't really explain what I'd like to learn, but I hope the following will do so.

The issue is opening links sent in an email (Eudora-SnowLpd or Lpd; or Entourage-Mavericks)....

Thanks again, Noting your emphasis, I don't particularly want password protection for my Mac on startup. I still have it on my precious old eMac with OS Tiger - and it's still a darned nuisance :D.

Correct. I understand why Authentication is there, but in SLpd, the previous OS version, the feature either didn't exist, it was Off by default, or I somehow turned it off.
