Moving Direct Mail to the Applications folder

Beginning with macOS 10.12 Sierra, you must manually move Direct Mail from the downloads folder before software updates can be installed. Here is how to move Direct Mail to your Applications folder:

  1. Quit the Direct Mail app by choosing Direct Mail > Quit Direct Mail from the menu bar at the top of your screen.quit.png

If you can't find where the Direct Mail app is located on your Mac

When you download Direct Mail from our website, it is (by default) saved to your Downloads folder. If you can't seem to find it there, however, there are a couple ways you can locate it:

Option 1

In the Finder, choose File > Find from the menu bar at the top of your screen and search for "Direct Mail"

Option 2

If the Direct Mail app is currently running, hold down the command key on your keyboard and click on the Direct Mail icon in the Dock. The Finder will open a window, revealing the location of the Direct Mail app.
