I just installed it on Sierra 10.12.1 - After I used MsgFiler for only a few minutes I decided that I don't know how I ever got along without it! Now, having used it for many hours, I praise the developer every time I use it. I'm sure that the time it will save me, within just a week, will be countless hours.

I've used the other systems that file (or attempt/claim to file) messages in Mail. None works as well as MsgFiler. It's clearly a winner. Add to its features, stability and very reasonable price the helpful, quick and friendly responsive service from MsgFiler's developer and it has to be considered the default, best and most useful solution. Recommended!

I don't know what you guys are smoking. As a user of MsgFiler, Mail Act-On, and MailHub, I greatly prefer MailHub to the other two and rank MsgFiler third.

I'm generally not sympathetic to people who complain when apps are only at the Mac Store and they can't try them out first. However, after having been stung (or saved, depending on how you look at it) twice today with apps that when downloaded proved to be worthless, I must share that skepticism. I think this is short-sighted behavior by developers. A note to MU: When you demand that I complete the star rating before my comment is posted, you do a disservice to me, readers, and the dev. How can I rate something I haven't tried for the reasons just explained? I'm using one star, but there should be a way of NOT rating it.

To post comments without a rating simply select the Comment (or Troubleshooting) menu item instead of Review.

Simply brilliant! I have several hundreds of messages in many layers of nested folders and MsgFiler beautifuly streamlines the work of putting individual messages in precisely the correct folder. A godsend.

This software has changed my life and so much easier! The new app engine (compared to the old plug-in) need some amelioration (like cancel, but it's very nice.

I get 100-200 emails a day and keeping track of them is a chore. Not infrequently despite best efforts I have 200-300 in my inbox. I don't like shelling out for applications without being able to try them out, which you can't if you buy from Apple's App Store. However, after reading a review in MacWorld I took the plunge and already loving it. Manually moving emails was always a problem as I could never remember which folder/subfolder I had created or stored similar messages in. With MsgFiler as along as I can remember a word or few letters in the mailbox title I get a short list of options. It seems to learn as I go, so that the appropriate mailbox is more often than not at the top of the list. Simply press 'return' and it gets moved into the appropriate mailbox - quickly. I haven't even looked at some of the other features but already loving it - and I don't write too many favourable reviews.

I'm not going to give it a rating now, because if I did it would be very low. I've been a user of MsgFiler for quite a few years. V3.00 is SLLOOWWWWWW, so slow that I consider it to be somewhat useless. And yes I put in the "engine." I'm using it mostly on POP accounts so it's not an IMAP issue. I'm hoping the old plug in will keep working in Lion, or the developer makes some serious upgrades to V3.

Agreed, V3.00 was slow. However, Adam has fixed this issue and V.3.01 (already submitted to the MAS as far as I know) is as fast as the old plugin and even more comfortable. I believe you will love it.

But why would someone use this when Mail Act-On offers even more?

3.0 is no longer a plug-in, like the description here says, and is only available from the App Store. More info here: http://www.tow.com/2011/02/15/msgfiler3-coming-soon/
