MailRecent for Mac1.8

06 January 2019

Adds ability to copy to, move to, or go to recent Apple mailbox.

What is MailRecent for Mac

MailRecent adds "Copy to Recent," "Move to Recent," and "Go to Recent" menu items to Apple's Mail application.

These menu items contain dynamically-updated lists of recently used mailboxes. The number of mailboxes kept in the list is determined by the "Recent Items" setting in the General panel of the OS X System Preferences.

What's new in MailRecent

Version 1.8:

Note: Now requires macOS 10.14 or later

  • Updated for macOS 10.14.2 Mojave
  • Starting with macOS 10.4/Mojave, I am providing the plugin only. I cannot provide an installer, and you must perform a manual installation as described on the main page.
  • You might need to provide Full Disk Access for the Terminal application to successfully use the following commands. You should remove this elevated Terminal permission after you have issued the commands.
  • As of macOS 10.4/Mojave the command-line based customizations might or might not work for you.

This great addition to Mail has ceased development and its last and final update was for Mohave. Too bad as I am unaware of any other Mail addition with the same features. It was unique and extremely productive and useful. One can only wish that Apple will incorporate its features in Big Sur.

It's handy, but its Installer didn't work for Sierra 10.12.1 - but I successfully installed it manually (per the developer's website instructions) (i.e., dragged its mail bundle to /Users/xxxxxx/Library/Mail/Bundles/.

Hi Greg, I really Liked this plugin and was glad to see you update it for the changes Apple made. Unfortunately, Installer didn't work, so I dragged the mail bundle to ~/Library/Mail/Bundles/ but it showed everything but the actual recent mail folders. So I tried different ones and still no recent folders, Move or Copy. I also tried the terminal instructions.

I finally got around to installing Security Update 2012-004 on my 10.6.8 Mac. The updated Mail 4.6 disabled MailRecent 1.2.4. It would have been a big disappointment to lose MailRecent. Fortunately, Greg Welch's MailRecent page offers an unsupported MailRecent 1.2.5 release for Snow Leopard users. He states it "might work." I can confirm it does work. There is an installation speed bump -- the Install MailRecent simple installer doesn't like 10.6.8. You have to use the Installation (Manual) instructions to move the MailRecent.mailbundle into Mail's bundle folder. The Terminal commands are unnecessary if you've ever installed any Mail plug-in.

FYI: Just upgraded to Lion today with all updates, and getting this message: "Contact the makers of these plug-ins for versions that are compatible with Mail 5.3 and Message 5.3." So, incompatible. I am also using MailTags and MailHub. Not sure where or what the conflict is... MailRecent seemed to be working fine on Snow Leopard.

Is there a possibility to "revert to or open previous message(s)" ? I find it annoying that there is no list of the last 10 messages that I opened.

I have been looking for something like this I switched from Windows to the Mac. Outlook remembers the last 10 mailboxes that you copied or moved to whereas Mac Mail only remembers the last one. This app adds that capability to Mail. I have been using it since version 1.0 on a Macbook Pro with no problems at all. This solved a major annoyance for me. Thanks to the developer.

This plugin has already made it easier to work with "too many" mailboxes in combination with Mail Act-On, much like described in the Background section on the developer site. Thanks, Greg! One improvement would be to include the extended name for a duplicate mailbox in the menu even when only a single instance of it occurs. It's easy to forget exactly which duplicate mailbox a single instance is, especially between Mail sessions. I'd also like a way to optionally invoke "Copy/Move to Recent" followed by "Go to Recent" for the specified mailbox. And I can imagine how a certain merging of this with the MsgFiler plugin might improve mouseless operation.

Seems to have broke may Mail.aap. Mail 2.1 (752/752.2) - 10.4.8 up to date per Software update. I quit mail and installed this program. When I reopened mail there was no Viewer Window open. Opened new viewer window and new menu items are not there. Now mail won't quit - no response to quit command. I have to go to Activity Mon and force quit. Mail still seems to work. I removed the Mailrecent.mailbundle that this installed in ~Library>Mail>Bundles and mail still won't quit without a force. Any idea on what's wrong?
