Unlike other menubar notification applications, Mail Unread Menu is actually a plugin for Mail.app, which means that the count is instantaneously updated whenever you recieve new email or change the status of a message.

Unfortunately, this won't work with Mail 7.3 in the latest update to Mavericks.

So I have an older iMac, running 10.9.2, and this is what I get when I try to install this goodie:

Mail has disabled the following plug-ins:

MailUnreadMenu

Contact the makers of these plug-ins for versions that are compatible with Mail 7.2 and Message 7.2

So, I don't know, me thinks this app needs to be updated.

I have Mail Unread Menu version 3.4.6 running on OS X Version 10.9.2, and this is what it says when I first try to use it:

Mail Unread Menu requires a mail bundle to be installed, so that your unread count will be automatically updated whenever necessary. This involves installing the file at ~/Library/Mail/Bundles/MailUnreadMenu.mailbundle. This only needs to be done once. Installing the bundle requires Mail to be closed.

Would you like to install now?

So I click OK, my Mail.app never close, yet then it days this:

The Mail Unread Menu bundle has been successfully installed. Enjoy!

I then click OK, then I get another window that says:

Mail has disabled the following plug-ins:

MailUnreadMenu

Contact the makers of these plug-ins for versions that are compatible with Mail 7.2 and Message 7.2.

I then click OK again, yet Mail Unread Menu stayed in my menubar. Is there something I need to change in the preferences to make this stupid thing work without all the stupid pop-up windows?

I just sent an email to Logan Rockmore with all of the last post I just made on MacUpdate.

I love this app and it is a shame it hasn't been updated. The app if free, so no hard feelings toward the developer for not releasing an update. It actually makes me mad when I see people badmouth these devs when they don't providing an update.

Anyway, here is a temporary fix. Download https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/37804/mailpluginfix which will fix the UUID of the app and let it work with Apple Mail 7.2. You will need to reload the Mail Unread Menu bundle, then run the mailpluginfix app to update the UUID for the MUM app for Mail 7.2. You will probably have to do the same if Apple updates to 7.3 anytime in the future.

Sometimes the update is a little late, but it always comes, and I couldn't stand Mail without this app, it does so much more than alert. Thanks for a great product, for years now!

Looks like another update is needed for 10.9.1 (although indeed, it works fine after you install it each time you open Mail).

Well, I've waited long enough and so gave 'Mail Menu' a go and it works well!

I don't want to say he's lazy but being somewhat anally retentive, my desktop is completely free of icons, just a pretty picture, and so, an app like Mail Unread keeps things up in the menu bar and even then I use Bartender to keep things clean. Wish my actual desk was just as clean and tidy!

if the update is late, you can use MailPluginFix to make the old one work...

Apple's Mail is a rare if not unique e-mail client in that it doesn't have a badged menu icon, which (at least for those users who prefer to keep the Dock hidden when not in use) is indispensible. This utility makes good the lack.And note this: if you use a "broken version" after an upgrade it will insert a plugin and tell you the installation was successful. Then Mail will put up a window saying that it has rejected an incompatible pplugin. Then the icon will appear in the menubar and work just fine anyway.

Works Great just as described. It is an indispensable tool to have in the menu bar. I installed it as a startup item.

An indispensable App! Having rules that move mail into a various folders this App allows a quick view of what mail has arrived. The VIP list only goes so far.

works fine with mail 7.0 running mavericks

So this is what it says for Mail 7.0 on my Intel iMac:

"Mail Unread Menu requires a mail bundle to be installed, so that your unread count will be automatically updated whenever necessary. This involves installing the file at ~/Library/Mail/Bundles/MailUnreadMenu.mailbundle. This only needs to be done once. Installing the bundle requires Mail to be closed."

I've installed the mail bundle several times and it still doesn't work/ So we definitely need an update.

Same here Dale. Each time MUR launches I have to install the bundle and then MUR is disabled as being incompatible with Mail 7.

Not sure if this will help but the ~/Library/Mail/Bundles folder on my computer is empty (0 items and no hidden files either). I'm running OS 10.9 and Mail 7.0 and MUM 3.4.5 (416). MUM is working just fine.

I checked, and my ~Library/Mail/Bundles folder is also completely empty. I saw that it said Mail had to be quit before the installation, so I made sure that was the case. So it then puts the MailUnreadMenu.mailbundle in place, then when I open Mail I get this:

Incompatible Plug-ins Disabled, Mail has disabled the following plug-ins: MailUnreadMenu

Contact the makers of these plug-ins for versions that are compatible with Mail 7.0 and Message 7.0.

So me thinks we need an update to make this work with Mail 7.0.
