Meta tagging for Mail.

Overview

Meta provides message tagging for Mail.app.

Harness the full potential of spotlight right inside Mail! Add custom keywords to mail messages, then create smart folders for better message management.

Features:

  • Intuitive tagging: access Meta, from all the expected places; the "Message" menu, the messages contextual menu, or right-click directly inside the message.
  • Batch Tagging: tag multiple messages at one time for ease of use, and better productivity.
  • OpenMeta support: Meta utilises the powerful open-source OpenMeta framework, making all tags instantly accessible by numerous other tagging applications.
  • Automatic updating: be confident knowing that you are running the latest release, without ever having to check for updates manually. (powered by Sparkle).

I've followed the directions exactly and this absolutely does not work. My smart folders do not show up any messages with the tags I make. It doesn't make any sense why it doesn't work – and I am a power user, I'm not simply doing it wrong.

Would like to give this app a higher review, but cannot as I realize I can not rely on it. Basically, the developer(s) have not (again) kept the version up to date alongside OSX updates. The latest 10.8.5 OSX invalidates the plugin. Therefore I cannot use this purchase Therefore I will forget about using it Therefore I will use something else You have been warned.

Just for fun, I checked to see if Meta would be current with the recently available 10.9.3 OSX release. Total #Fail. Its not. Yet again proving the lack of professionalism of the developer. Its unusable.

Meta is a simple app for tagging messages, which is all I want, but it falls down in a couple of areas: - It doesn't display tags assigned to messages in the message header or anywhere else. The only way to see the tags is to open the Edit window. - Tags are not saved to the IMAP server, and are therefore only accessible on the Mac on which they are assigned.

Nice way to add tags to an email. I like it better than MailTags. The best feature is that you can tag multiple emails at once.

Ought to be renamed to something less generic and more unique than "Meta".

A more unique name would also make it easier to spot in web search results. :) Thanks for the response.

Beware: this app significantly messes up smooth scrolling in Mail. Good concept. Bad implementation.

do you have a lot of emails? or perhaps just a lot of files on your computer? the slow down may be due to spotlight indexing your files...

Ive just uploaded v.1.1 to my site, which substantially reduces the amount of disk writes, hopefully that works better for you. (if you wanted to try it out that is ;) )
