The excellent mail "Herald" mail plugin quit working on Sierra betas some time ago but today was updated to work on Sierra, three days after Sierra was released. Unfortunately, I have already moved on to the 10.12.1 beta 1 (Mail is version 10.1) and the newly released Herald still doesn't work. Unfortunately, a last ditch attempt to use the latest version of mailpluginfix to make Herald work didn't work. I'm disappointed but that is life in on the edge

After updating to 10.9.3 I had trouble with Attachment Tamer, MailUnreadMenu, MailFollowUp and SendLater. Of course, I could've waited for the devs to update their plugins, but MailPluginFix sorted them all out so that I can still use them while I wait for the relevant updates. Super little app!

Excellent application! After the 10.9 Mavericks Mail update, my plug-ins for ReplyWithHeader and NoFlaggedMailbox were broken. Now they work! I felt compelled to donate money for a cup of coffee. Great work!

Note: Doesn't actually download new versions of the plugins or fix incompatibilities, just marks the existing old disabled versions as compatible and re-enables them

Looks cool. But for some reason it doesn't allow me the patch those plugins. It tells me "Mail.app is currently running". But my Mail.app is not running at all and terminated. Do I need to run this as Admin?

I wrote that the recent 10.6.8 security update appears to have disabled certain Apple Mail 4.6 bundles, including MailTabs and WideMail. And I do miss WideMail! Misha replied that this utility would address that particular problem, and it sure as heck did. Thanks ever so!!!

Fantastic, simple and downright lifesaving in my case. Why doesn't Apple include this function in Mail??? It's so obviously necessary.
