This was a brilliant app, simple unobtrusive. What happened to the developer? Please please please come back and make this Intel compatible.

I've really been enjoying Mail Enhancer. It's been working fine until I changed my Junk Mail settings. I previously had Junk mail being marked and placed in my Trash via a "Custom Action." A few days ago I changed Junk Mail to go to it's own folder. Two Junk Mails came in and were correctly sorted. The next day I decided to return to my previous settings. This has created an "unread mail" count of 2 on the red dot in the Dock icon that will not go away, even when all trash has been deleted and all mail read.

Is there a way to correct this? I've re-installed Mail Enhance once already.

Doesn't work for me. Even after doing:

defaults write com.apple.mail EnableBundles 1
defaults delete com.apple.mail BundleCompatibilityVersion

As of 10.4.3, MailEnhancer isn't working any more, at least for me. I'm getting the bundle compatibility error and none of the solutions that seemed to work for earlier versions are working now. I tried this with a brand new user just to make sure it wasn't something weird with my user only and sure enough it wasn't. If anyone knows how to make it work again, please let me know.

The installer does not seem to work.
Check the readme file for manual install instructions. This works here with 10.4.6!

** DO NOT FOLLOW THE STEP ABOUT CHANGING THE COM.APPLE.MAIL PLIST... simply copy the bundle in ~/Library/Mail/Bundles/ **

I couldn't live without this little thing!

It works on 10.4.1, just make this steps:

In Finder, rename folder ~/Library/Mail/Bundles (Disabled) to ~/Library/Mail/Bundles

In Terminal, type:
defaults write com.apple.mail EnableBundles 1

defaults write com.apple.mail BundleCompatibilityVersion 2

Relaunch Mail

Thanks a million! Worked like a charm!

I can't say how happy I am to have Mail Enhancer back.

This is great. Thanks for the tip!

Anyone have a workaround for bringing back the signature functionality? I'm not getting the ability to associate a signature with an outgoing email address any more.

I wonder if the Tiger changes to the Preferences boxes messed that up.

**I did not write this but simply ripped it off the TUAW site.**

Apple disabled third-party plug-ins in Mail 2.0.1. Here's how I fixed GPGMail. It will probably work for Growl, too.

1. Quit Mail.
2. On the terminal, run 'defaults write com.apple.mail EnableBundles 1' without the quotes.
3. Start Mail.
4. Quit Mail.
5. Rename ~/Library/Mail/Bundles (Disabled) to just Bundles, or reinstall the plug-in.
6. Start Mail.

I had to mess around with opening Mail a few times after running the terminal command before reinstalling the plug-in, otherwise the setting wouldn't take.

Oh, I suppose I forgot to mention that this seems to work with MailEnhancer, Growl, and Mail Act-On. I'm sure it works with any other bundles as well.

Well, the 'automatically update signature' does not appear to be working under Tiger - the 'choose signature' option is greyed out, forcing a single signature to be set for all email accounts. This was the most useful feature for me - I would very much welcome an upgrade.

The new Tiger version 10.4.1 disables this program and asks to go to the source for an update.

I like the added features, particularly the updated Dock icon showing the number of unread messages.

Unfortunately, I've had the same trouble with stability that several other commenters have described -- initiating an action, particularly creating a new message, while several threads are running often causes the program to crash. Fortunately, I've not lost any data. Corruption is minimal in that a few messages re-appear in previous mailboxes as well as the mailboxes they were just moved to prior to a crash.

I'm a little concerned that the author has no way of being contacted in order to provide bug reports. If you, the author, read these comments we welcome your identity so we can help you to perfect an otherwise very nice utility.

I liked mostly what the program did, but for some reason it within a day caused mail to crash every time i tried to compose a new email. Apparently other people haven't had this problem, but it was solved when i removed the mailenhancer bundle from the bundles folder. would email the author, but he is without name or contact as far as i can tell.
