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.

I had installed the pre-release version for 10.9 (v 4), but it caused mail to freeze up. Worked for a while, but something happened that forced me to pull all 3rd party bundles. I have Mail Hub, Attachment Tamer and Tags... I pulled all and tested all. Tags in the current beta was the issue. Hope they'll have it tuned soon. Love the software...

MailTags is a great app that gets you out of trouble when you can't find that important email. Tagging takes some getting use too, but once you make it part of your workflow I guarantee it will save you time and frustration.

I have been using MailTags for a couple of years. It's easy to learn and has many easy to discover features, best of all the UI is intuitive. Like most Mac users we don't read manuals. With MailTags you don't have too.

In addition to being a great app, they have great customer support. Recently I had a problem when I upgraded to my new MacBook Pro. I lost all my mail tags. A simple email to MailTags Support and everything was taken care in a flash.

If you want to quickly find emails, MailTags is for you.

Customer support is great, huh!? You talk like a review actor working for this software developer. The suspicion grows when we see several comments written by the software developer below. Besides, you say you've been using MialTags for two years. And you got your account on February 13, 2013 just to post this comment? Duohhhh!

I really like Mailtags and have used it for months BUT, and this is the fatal flaw, it won't synch my tagging and labelling of emails across my 2 macs as I use Gmail :-(

As I use both my desktop and laptop every day it is a colossal pain having tagged and sorted mail on one machine and then having to duplicate that on the other. I can't be bothered!!

Is there an alternative to mailtags that will do this synching of tags and 'projects' across two Macs?
Thanks for any help or suggestions.

This is really quite a good and useful app that I would gladly give five stars for if it weren't for persistent issues with the interface. When setting tags or reminders or tasks the entry fields are never big enough. I should be able to see all the tags populate the field but that doesn't happen. I should be able to click on a tag and hit delete and delete the tag, but instead I have to insert the pointer to the right of the tag and hit backspace! Very tedious. Setting dates is also a chore as oftentimes the task window closes if I try to tab out of the calendar. It's these little niggling things that make me crazy. I'd like to be able to use the keyboard alone to edit the tag box but instead I've got to keep using my trackpad to place the arrow where I want to go.
Five stars overall for what the app can do.
Minus 1.5 stars for these interaction difficulties.

I absolutely agree with this review. Wonderful app, just make it more keyboard friendly. One example (as Anon-Bud says): give me a keyboard-friendly way to add a calendar event or task.

Leopard 10.5.1, Mail 3.0, latest Beta of Mail Tags.

Doesn't seem to be working, no keyword searches (dynamic folders) work. Could be I missed that it was not working in the release notes.

Uninstalling for now.

Regist had trouble on 05 Jun 2006
The tag serching in Mail Tags' new spotlight menu doesn't seem to work. I applied a Tag to a number of messages that I preferred not ot keep in my mailbox and then did a search after moving the messages to the trash. Spotlight didn't find them even using the "All Mailboxes" selection. When going to Trash and searching they all came up.

The plug-in seems fabulous, though I agree with earlier comments about the interface. Hope this bug and interface issues are resolved.

scotteg had trouble on 01 Sep 2005
Smart Mailbox condition "MailTags Due Date is within ___ days..." not working. This function did work fine, up until yesterday. I don't know if these actions had any effect on the problem, but I ran a defrag (using TechTool Pro 4), and when I came back to the main volume and deleted/rebuilt my Spotlight index, and then opened Mail, my Smart Mailbox "action," which was set to pull all Mail items that are flagged and have a MailTags Due Date within 1 day showed nothing (there should be several items). So, I edited the Smart Mailbox, removing the MailTags condition, keeping the Flagged condition, and they all reappeared. I confirmed that I have several items with due dates today, tomorrow, etc. Then I repeated the setup of the MailTags Due Date and they disappeared from the Smart Mailbox again.

On a similar subject, I would like to have a Due Date Within tag that also shows all past due dates for unprocessed items.

Hi Scott
We have developed an mdimporter that will take care the issue and restore spotlight indexing of existing mailtags (information is still there, spotlight just doesn't know about it)
