TruePreview is an ideal resource for users left unsatisfied by Mail.app's lack of message-previewing capability.

Apple's OS X Mail program is a good e-mail client overall, but it has its share of annoyances. Apple does not provide a published or supported way to extend or modify Mail's behavior. Thus, these annoyances persist until a developer takes the time to dig into Mail's innards to find an underhanded solution.

One of the most common shortcomings/omissions/bugs/failures in Mail is the inability to truly preview messages. If the preview pane is displayed in the message viewer window, as soon as a message is more...

Even the last 1.8a7 available on the dev's site (2013-09-13) doesn't work on 10.9.

1.8a7 It works in 10.8.5. I'm trying the Mail Act-On alternative, but it's really expensive, just to have a few seconds delay… :-/

Still no solution. Mail 7.0 broke so many useful plugins and provided no alternatives.

Hey! I've found a nice little trick! ;-) I've tried Mail Act-On v3 and it seems the programmed delay continues working after the one month trial! :-D (provided you tolerate the nag-screen when mail launches...)

Unfortunately no longer working with Mail 7.0 (OS X Mavericks). Hope it gets fixed soon as this thing is/was GREAT.

Note that version 1.6 works on PPC 10.5 (no way on PPC 10.4 even older versions).

On the dev's site, there's a 1.7 version which is supposed to be the last stable one (over the 1.6 marked here).

TruePreview 1.8a4 is now broken and disabled in the new Apple Lion update 10.7.5. Mail 5.3 disables TruePreview. Great little program and hope it comes back to Lion soon!

I do not love this, it's more: I need it! I cannot live without!
But I have to: It's gone since Apple's update to 10.7.3 …

PLEASE, don't wait any further week to give us a working solution (alpha is OK :-)

Beside of that, didn't find any notice on this site regarding compatibility with PPC or (only) Intel.

This is an essential utility for Apple's Mail since it eliminates one of the most annoying features of Mail. You can have different settings for different accounts and it just works perfectly. This, along with MailHub, is the the perfect combination for Mail.
