The mod to v. 1.0.6 works — in letting RocketBox do its searches, but I can no longer OPEN the mail found ! Hmm.

Just updated to v. 1.0.7
Same problem persists though.
Any thoughts ?

While robotank's tip, I am sure works; it is way over the heads of 99% of the purchasers of this excellent Mail bundle.

Updating Rocketbox is obviously a no-brainer.

PLEASE update !

I agree that an update would obviously be the best solution here, but with so few signs of life from Rocketbox in the last few months, the prospect of a quick update appears uncertain. Anyway, the procedure for editing the Info.plist should, it seems to me, be accessible to most users of Rocketbox who would see this page. Even if you don't really understand what you're doing, following the directions step by step should be doable for anyone with basic Mac knowledge, like how to navigate folders in the Finder and open Terminal. I figure that most users looking at Mail bundles on MacUpdate are likely to possess at least this level of sophistication. After all, the least sophisticated Mac users I know wouldn't even have any idea what a Mail bundle is. This tweak isn't very dangerous in any case. Even if someone somehow completely destroyed their Info.plist and didn't have it backed up, simply re-downloading and reinstalling the bundle would instantly restore the original Info.plist. Provided you don't accidentally run sudo rm -rf /System or something like that you should be safe enough...

See here for directions on getting bundles to load in new versions of Mail by adding strings to the bundle's info.plist files: http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20100823103751355

This hint is written for GrowlMail, but it works with any bundle. I just got Rocketbox and a couple other bundles tweaked for 10.6.7/Mail 4.5 without issue.

The tip worked perfectly. I used PListEditPro. I still imagine very few ordinary Mac users would be capable of doing this mod'

No updates in almost 5 months, I'd stay away from Rocketbox. It appears to be one of those version 1 only app's. Very disappointed because is has such great potential.

Upgrading to OS X 10.6.5 upgrades MAIL to Version 4.4 (build 1082)

Now Rocketbox is auto-disabled by MAIL>

Hey Flash,

I just released a version compatible with Mac OS X 10.6.5. Make sure you download Rocketbox 1.0.6 which is the right version.

All these numbers... sooner or later it will all get sorted out. Looking above at what we’re getting and reading the comments below as to what we’re getting, version wise, will all sort itself out, sooner or later.

OS X 10.6.4? Or OS X 10.6.5 compatibility? I think this 1.0.6 version is compat with 10.6.5 but who’s counting or keeping the numbers?

For me? Just GLAD to have (again) Rocketbox BACK having upgraded my MAIL with the new OS X whatever’s the latest... (Just think of all the FUN we’ll have dealing with tweeks and quirks once the LION emerges!)

Definitely resource intense! I am impressed with the features, functions, and speed. But the fact that my CPU jumps up some 20 degrees hotter when RocketBox runs really surprises me. What is happening behind the scenes to be this resource intense? (MBP 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo, 4GB, 10.6.4) As no one else has reported this, it's possible that it is something in my configuration.

This looks very promising. After taking on a new roll at work I'm seeing my email traffic increase markedly. Rocketbox looks like it'll make my email more manageable.

However first impressions are that it could do with some interface improvements. The developers website shows some of its powerful advanced search abilities yet there is no obvious way to discover these from within the software. In fact there's no Help feature in Rocketbox at all nor a link to the website. Surely it would be a simple matter to add a "cheat sheet" of search terms.

It would also be nice to be able to check the version number or check for updates from within the software. A panel in Mails preferences would seem to be a good way of achieving many of these things.

Finally, presentation of search results could be more efficient. Rocketbox often shows multiple hits for the same message as well as content duplicated in quoted text across discussion threads. Abbreviated headers are shown but without date and time. Adding this information would help a great deal. Allowing search results to be threaded might be even better. Perhaps offering three sort results instead of two would be one way of doing this: Relevance, Date, Thread.
