Yes, it is currently broken. MailPluginFix says it's able to update the UUID codes, but it appears the true fix will be a new version of GrowlMail itself.

Just a minor technical note. Mavericks does not delete GrowMail, it moves it into a folder called "Bundles (Disabled)" as OS X does with any component declared incompatible.

I wanted to inform the macupdate staff that your listing is outdated, and Growlmail 1.3.5 is available from the developer's site, and 1.3.4 has a bug with autoupdate, so users can't update to the new version reliably through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

Just upgraded to Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2 (11C74) and Growlmail does not work. Any idea when a compatible version of Growlmail will be available?

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!

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?

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.

Tripod2 had trouble on 26 May 2011
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.

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

See the Tip in Letterbox (search MacUpdate for 'Letterbox') to see how to fix all of the Mail bundle plugins. Basically, you need to update the Info.plist file within GrowlMail.mailbundle with two new GUID entries in order to get Mail to accept the Growl Mail plugin.

@Jminnihan: broken again in 10.6.7 and copy-pasting the PluginCompatibilityUUID from Mail.app's Info.plist to GrowlMail's SupportedPluginCompatibilityUUIDs array didn't work.

Apparently 2 ID strings need to be added:

Thanks to Greg Welch, developer of MailFollowUp plugin for the solution.

Philmac had trouble on 24 Sep 2010
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
