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

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.

**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.

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.

Strange, but if I enable "Display a status dialogue after doing a manual mail check", Mail crashes about every other time at least. If I disable this one preference, no crashes.

The other thing that is strange is that if I enable " Show activity viewer when doing a manual mail check", then check in quick succession a few times, I get some very weird behaviour in the Mailboxes-double boxes, then all of them close up. Very odd. Otherwise, it's great.

sabre45 had trouble on 28 Dec 2006
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.
