Its OK, and thats about it, I miss mailhubs ability to file mail en masse, to auto find every mail from the same sender and file it to a mail folder. Or may I am using it wrong and it can do that ??

With the apparent death of MailHub, I turned to MsgFiler for the ability to easily refile mail messages and jump to folders in an intuitive fashion. It works well, though I miss the prediction powers of MailHub, absent in MsgFiler.

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'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.

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.

Still my favourite to file emails. For me it is nearly a solution of striking simplicity. Thanks to the developer for keeping this little nice app up-to-date (you may find a OS 10.6.1 compatible version on his website).

A couple things would make this plug-in even more useful: - Recent Items history - Ability to switch to the last previously selected mailbox The latter might be implemented as a subset of the former.

MsgFiler is a handy complement to Mail Act-On. I have a lot of folders (because I have to sort my emails for history reasons) and it isn't convenient to set for all of them a rule or Mail Act-On rule. I use Mail Act-On for my most important and daily used folders, but I love to use MsgFiler for infrequently used folders or for folders with many sub-folders. The search engine works great and really fast. You can use multiple search terms, part of words or navigate trough a list of strikes via the up and down arrow keys. Simple and good. In addition, MsgFiler allows you easy to find and open any of your folders (Apple+O), if you need to have a look of your old emails. Ultimately, Adam (the developer) is very responsive if you have any queries and interested in suggestions. MsgFiler as a full integrated Mail plug-in is for me one of my “must have”…

I was interested in MsgFilter a long time, but did not install it because it was an extra application. I use and like Mail Act-On, but I have to much folders, and only define the most important folders with a short-cut. Now MsgFilter is integrated in Mail as a plug-in, and at my first impression it seems to be a good complement to Mail Act-On.

Why would I want to use this plug-in when I can setup rules in Mail to do filing automatically? Seem like a step back to me.
