    I'm not entirely sure that they aren't right.

    Not always true: I don't think I've heard my wife use the adjective "hopeless".

    I said I'd report back after 1 month. It's now been almost 6 weeks and no further problems with the Mail app opening randomly. So thank you to everyone that suggested solutions. I'm very pleased!!!.

    Please look out for another problem I'm just about to post on the iOS threads (iPhone SE speaker icon has line through it by default when playing video)

    Did you ever figure out what the actual cause was, or know what you did to fix the problem???

    Hi Patrick, no I can't pin it down to any specific cause unfortunately. I followed the suggestions in the link I quoted in my original post and I did what you suggested and changed all the settings, even those ones that were set correctly, and then set them the correct way so as to force them to reset as you suggested. It would be good to know exactly what was causing the problem but the bottom line is it is fixed (fingers crossed!) Thank you.

    It sounds like possibly a goofed up preference list mItight have been causing the problem.

    Anyway, I'm glad to hear it's all working better. I was just curious and wondering...
