I've gotten so used to this thing, I couldn't go back now if I wanted to. Great little bundle!

There are some visual glitches (horizontal lines over mailboxes) and bugs when windows are minimized, but the updates seem to be coming out quickly and this is a a very promising new plugin. I already find it indispensable.

The minimized-to-Dock bug remains in v0.6. But still, there are many improvements with v0.6. This Mail plug-in is definitely turning into a must-have. :)

When I installed mail tabs with letterbox, then Mail.app froze as I launched it. It had to remove mail tabs to make mail function again.

Mail Tabs is great for reducing clutter. I use it with MailHub and Letterbox on a big screen to fly through my huge inbox.

That said, Mail Tabs would be even better if the tabs were just for the "Preview Pane" so that you could still see your Mailboxes and Messages at the same time. I look forward to seeing this plug-in develop.

I use MailTabs in conjunction with all those other Maibundles: GrowlMail, Letterbox, MailUnreadMenu, SpamSieve, and everything works beautifully!
I only wish the tabs would be a bit more larger, a la Safari, and they remembered positions between Mail relaunches.
Other than that, perfect for my needs.

I use MailHub and Letterbox (two other Mail plugins) and this doesn't work together with them.

I just updated MailHub and then installed MailTabs and it's all working brilliantly with Letterbox too. 3 awesome plug-ins!

Overall I really like this. I have no idea why apple hasn't done this already. The only thing I wish was here is some preferences. For example I wish I had the ability to have tabs open to the right of the current tab not to the absolute right. Another feature which would be nice is to have Mail's left column to appear all the time regardless which tab you are on. Makes it easier to navigate.

Great plugin, but...

I'm using Mail.app 4.5 on Snow Leopard with the classic 3-pane interface: folders on the left, headers on top-right, message body in bottom-right. With MailTabs installed, the header pane's height keeps creeping up as tabs get created and closed.

I'm really liking this plugin but I have one big problem with it. If it crashes it forgets all the tabs that were open. There needs to be something in place to remember position. Please fix. By the way, once all the bugs get nailed out I would be more than happy to purchase this. My feature requests are listed below :)
