I really like growl mail, been working great. However just updated this morning to 10.6.5 and now it no longer works. After software update, advised plugin had been deactivated as not compatible. Look forward to a fix soon. thanks

Version 1.4.x is not compatible with the latest Yosemite Mail (8.2). It is rejected by the Mail app. Please provide an update that is Mail 8.x compatible. Thank you.

I wanted to inform the macupdate staff that your listing is outdated, and Growlmail 1.3.5 is available from the developer's site, and 1.3.4 has a bug with autoupdate, so users can't update to the new version reliably through this release. Thanks.

GrowlMail is handy but the most recent update is detected, downloaded, and errors out with a message saying it'll try again next time it's started. It's never able to update itself...

I'm happy that the latest versions of GrowlMail are Lion compatible, but in my experience, the app seems to forget my chosen Display Style configuration every time I restart my Mac. Has anyone else experienced this issue?

Will GrowlMail be updated for Mac OS X 10.6.8? I won't upgrade to Lion for some time, and GrowlMail 1.2.5 only supports up to 10.6.7.

Yeah - 1.3 is running fin e under Lion! The original Growl developer had discontinued development, and handed over to the code of GrowlMail to the OpenSource community. And it seems, a new developer has fixed this for Lion. Many thanks, indispensable tool!

This simply does not work under 10.6.5; nothing happens after installation and upon de-installation *then* it wants a admin password (not needed for the installation)!

hi people. anyone knows if it's possible to just show the %sender %subject tokens (in growlmail's prefs) in new notifications without any bit of the mail body? like just: johnny appleseed borrow cds the simplest i can get is a notification that i have a number of new emails in my inbox without any token info. thanks.

Is there a difference between "compatible with" and "declared compatibility?" The version history is inconsistent, and previous versions of the software list "Compatible with Mac OS X 10.6.x" in the changelog.

Attempts to install GrowlMail 1.2.4 on my G5 running 10.5.8 fail with an error about being the installer being unable to write to a temp folder. Ran the GrowlMail-Installation-Fixer-1.0 app, the GrowlMail 1.2.4 installer then runs fine, yet no GrowlMail preferences are available in the Mail.app version 3.6. So now I have lost GrowlMail entirely after attempting to update. I do not have a previous version of GrowlMail installer handy to try to restore functionality.

Thanks, but I've already fixed it two days after the 10.6.7 release, and everything is fine. I'm glad I didn't wait for you...

When GrowlMail gets the body of a message, it also loads images, even if you have turned off "Display remote images" in Mail's preferences. The bug is known and is slated to be addressed in version 2.0. The workaround is to select "Show a summary or received emails" in GrowlMail's preferences. (That means GrowlMail won't show the text of messages, of course.) The issue is discussed at http://groups.google.com/group/growldiscuss/browse_thread/thread/9ea4179d02aa968a/c62811c448ae6c0d If it matters to you, you can express that by starring the ticket: http://code.google.com/p/growl/issues/detail?id=89

I couldn't install this on my G5 running 10.5.8. I found this on a discussion board and all worked fine after that. http://groups.google.com/group/growldiscuss/browse_thread/thread/8a0482740a729e56/b672c3b83a6dde6c?lnk=gst&q=growlmail#b672c3b83a6dde6c

I have downloaded it 4 times deleted the last version quit mail and every time it crashes right as it begins to installs. What the hell is going on. G5 Dual 2gig cpu 3 gigs of ram ati x 8600 xp pro I don't have an earlier version which is unusual for me since I keep a separate DL folder for everything I install. I even found the program that could convert any text into usable text and I believe other medial as well. It was called CanOpener for OS 9 and earlier. It was one of the highest rated programs then. If anyone has the ability to evolve it to OS X could make some money with me. Contact me if anyone is interested by my email address gameboybob@aol.com.
