    Alternatively, if mail won't open you can go to  > System settings > Privacy & Security > Extensions > turn off the Daylite Mail Assistant Extension.
  2. Choose Mail > Settings > General and click Manage Plug-ins...
    • If the Daylite Mail Assistant is listed, turn on the Mail Assistant and click Apply and Restart Mail
    • If the Legacy Daylite Mail Assistant is not listed, follow the steps below:

      1. Quit Mail

      2. Open Daylite

      3. Hold down the Command key (on your keyboard) Click the Daylite Menu and select Install Mail Assistant…, then follow the onscreen instructions.
