constantly has to update, and buying software from this dev is only really renting, as it is only supported for a year or so before you are force to update and pay another steep upgrade fee ($15 or so) I did like the feature of the app, but will be holding out for when mailbox comes to osx soon, which will essentially be doing the same thing but with more and better features

Simply excellent for moving emails with keyboard shortcuts into folders and sub-folders instead of having to maneuver with the mouse through folder structures.

Well, even I love this tool and used it in the past, I just wanted to add a comment here: I am not able to purchase the new upgrade.

Hello, I am here ready to spend my money but the order won't get through, not with paypal, not with my credit card. So now I have to spend minutes (or hours?) to contact esellerate to fix it. Tried it with different browsers and macs: no go. I am using both methods regularly without any problems.

Sorry but I am not supposed to invest my time to be able to spend my money.
indev sent me another license for 30 days, thanks. But don't expect me to fix those problems for you.

Thanks Indev
As I have a license working for 30 days, there is no need to hurry and I am sure you will help me.
btw: I contacted esellerate several hours ago and never heard back.
So, up to private conversations.

Watch out! I just got an email from Indev that said they were revoking purchased registrations for Version 2 and forcing users to pay to use version 3. Does not matter if I am happy with version 2 or not they are deactivating software that was purchased and forcing users to upgrade. So your overall cost for the functionality is not necessarily what they are quoting because they could come back next month and deactivate version 3 and force an upgrade to version 3.5. Not a good business model unless you are money hungry.

Sorry for the misunderstanding.

We are not deactivating valid registrations for Mail Act-On 2 and people who are happy with Mail Act-On 2 can continue to use the software (on 10.7 and 10.8) with their Version 2 registrations.

When we made the prerelease versions of Mail Act-On 3 available, we accepted version 2 registrations during the pre-release period. This allowed people to make use of the the pre releases without the onus of purchasing the upgrade.

With the official release of Mail Act-On 3 for OS X 10.8 and 10.9, Version 3 now requires a Version 3 registration code, but people can continue to use version 2 on OS X 10.7, 10.8 with their old registration.

We hope this clarifies the upgrade process for you.

The released version of MAO3 of today freezes MAIL completely and makes non-operable. I found this out after buying the final MAO3 software (Upgrade from MAO2 to MAO3) this morning - very frustrating. The previous prerelease versions worked fine however.
Here is a need for immediate action!
Besides of that, MAO is my companion since years.
I'm sure the guys of Indev will this this also.

I can't live without this app (and MailTags). Mail is an OK app, but these add-on really push it to the next level in terms of organizations and usability.
Really helps if you're into GTD.

FYI: The new Apple update for Mavericks (10.9.2) with Apple Mail 7.2 will disable MailHub, MailTags, and Mail Act-On. But reinstalling MailHub (beta 1.7B64) seems to work. The other two are now disabled and non-functioning with the update.

Update since last night: Latest beta versions of all three appear to install and function properly on 10.9.2. Indev's beta versions for MailTags and Mail Act-On can only be found directly on their website.MailHub's beta can be found on Macupdate.com

I just around to re-installing MAO after upgrading systems. It does not seem to work (nothing will bring up the rules) and it keeps asking for my registration information. The developer seems unresponsive. Any one else have problems? Software 10.8.3, Mail 6.3.

Yeah 10.6.1 definitely breaks Mail Act-On (and every other plugin I had working in Mail). Hopefully a fix won't be too long coming.

I will be posting an update this weekend that fixes this.

To uninstall manually simply remove the MailActOn.mailbundle file from ~/Library/Mail/Bundles.

I thought I was just updated v1 (should have read the fine lines - my mistake) to discover that ActOn v2 breaks Mail (which couldn't load any message) as well as MailTags itself!!

also, no doubt that it is great coming from the creator of MailTags, but very pricy indeed if you consider that the 2 work together - and now you need 2 licenses!

well, back to v1 I guess... ; )

We are currently resolving a conflict with both WideMail and LetterBox -- This has been the issue for a few people

This stems from a version mismatch of Sparkle -- the automatic update engine.

Yup, Mail Act-On 2.0 is incompatible with the WideMail plug-in - confirmed by moving WideMail to disabled bundles folder and relaunching mail.

It works fine on my end with Mail.Appetizer 1.3b1
(I am assuming you are running Leopard right?)

I cannot download MailRecent -- it seems to be off line.

And of course it works with MailTags2

Email me directly (smorr@indev.ca) and lets see if we can solve your problems.
