Still crashes in Snow Leopard when in use with Google Notifier. Even in Leopard I could never get this app to work without crashing. Nice idea, but crashes too much for me to bother with.

It is free and it is a must have for Apple Mail in my opinion. Still works with High Sierra and Mail 11.5. You do need to download the free app, MailPluginFix, and use this to fix this plugin to then work.

Mail 3.0 marks Mail Unread Menu as incompatible. It works, but Mail bundle installation is required every time Mail is relaunched. With Magnesium-app's Mail Satellite there's no such problem ($10).

Still works, but you have to run MailPluginFix. I like this much more than Dockstar.

This just seems to work for me on 10.11.6 without any MailPluginFix mentioned here.

This best-of-class works in Yosemite by moving it back into ~/Library/Mail/Bundles folder if you get a warning that it has been disabled.. And MailPluginFix can be a help.

MailPluginFix is great and kept this util functional, but I'm finding in 10.10.2, MUM is using 17.5% CPU on my late 2013 MBP 15". I do agree that it's best-in-class, but it just doesn't make sense to use this unless I'm plugged in.

For those of us who are complete idiots. What exactly do I need to do to be able to use the application? I really love it and would like it to work again. I downloaded MailPluginFix (which looks like I have a lot of disabled ones out there) but am not sure what to do with it. Thanks!

MailPluginFix is just little app. Put it in Applications or Utilities folder and double click to run.

Am not seeing MUM running at high CPU, not at all. Maybe trash it with AppCleaner or similar, which finds all related files to trash ... when I do that, I just pick the app out of the trash (oops, which I find with any "invisible" app and drag to sidebar, Apple thinks we are idiots) ... or download a fresh copy. Preferences files get corrupted ...

I have relied on this app for years and was bummed when it stopped working (thank you Apple). Scottlep's fix is working perfectly (so far) for me running 10.9.4 and Mail 7.3 Thanks. "...Download https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/37804/mailpluginfix which will fix the UUID of the app and let it work with Apple Mail 7.2. You will need to reload the Mail Unread Menu bundle, then run the mailpluginfix app to update the UUID for the MUM app for Mail 7.2. You will probably have to do the same if Apple updates to 7.3 anytime in the future."

Unfortunately, this won't work with Mail 7.3 in the latest update to Mavericks.

Hmm, no problems here, running Mavericks 10.9.4. Maybe there's something funny going on at your end. I suggest you contact the dev with a log report.

So I have an older iMac, running 10.9.2, and this is what I get when I try to install this goodie: Mail has disabled the following plug-ins: MailUnreadMenu Contact the makers of these plug-ins for versions that are compatible with Mail 7.2 and Message 7.2 So, I don't know, me thinks this app needs to be updated.

I have Mail Unread Menu version 3.4.6 running on OS X Version 10.9.2, and this is what it says when I first try to use it: Mail Unread Menu requires a mail bundle to be installed, so that your unread count will be automatically updated whenever necessary. This involves installing the file at ~/Library/Mail/Bundles/MailUnreadMenu.mailbundle. This only needs to be done once. Installing the bundle requires Mail to be closed. Would you like to install now? So I click OK, my Mail.app never close, yet then it days this: The Mail Unread Menu bundle has been successfully installed. Enjoy! I then click OK, then I get another window that says: Mail has disabled the following plug-ins: MailUnreadMenu Contact the makers of these plug-ins for versions that are compatible with Mail 7.2 and Message 7.2. I then click OK again, yet Mail Unread Menu stayed in my menubar. Is there something I need to change in the preferences to make this stupid thing work without all the stupid pop-up windows?

I love this app and it is a shame it hasn't been updated. The app if free, so no hard feelings toward the developer for not releasing an update. It actually makes me mad when I see people badmouth these devs when they don't providing an update. Anyway, here is a temporary fix. Download https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/37804/mailpluginfix which will fix the UUID of the app and let it work with Apple Mail 7.2. You will need to reload the Mail Unread Menu bundle, then run the mailpluginfix app to update the UUID for the MUM app for Mail 7.2. You will probably have to do the same if Apple updates to 7.3 anytime in the future.
