Re: Apple Mail in Mavericks crash on importing mail
That's not a FinderPop crash, that stuff will get printed when FinderPop (installed for just you) tries to patch a Sandboxed app like
Send me the crash log ( and I'll have a look but I don't think this one can be laid at FinderPop's door.
FYI, the latest version of FinderPop is 2.5.3 beta.

Note: for FinderPop to patch Sandboxed apps, the FinderPop prefPane needs to be installed for all users, not just you.
If your FinderPop is installed for just you, you can uninstall it and then reinstall it for all users by - close System Preferences, open it again, right-click on FinderPop's icon in System Preferences, choose 'Remove' or 'Uninstall', then close System Preferences. Back in the Finder, double-click the FinderPop.prefPane you've just downloaded, which will open System Preferences, which will ask you whether you want to install FinderPop for all users, or just you. Choose 'All Users' and continue as usual.
The technical reason for this is that Sandboxed apps have read access to /System/Library but no access at all to /Users/your-name-here/Library. When FinderPop is installed for all users, it's put in /System/Library/PreferencePanes, a location which is accessible. When FP was installed for just you, it was inside /Users/you/Library - and Sandbox will prevent TextEdit from reading anything in that location.
