MailHub for Mountain Lion is a time-saving email management plugin that can file, delete, or enact actions on emails without leaving your inbox. Email from a contact or thread can be batch-filed to a mailbox (or deleted) with a series of simple mouse clicks or key strokes, radically reducing time spent on mail administration. MailHub even allows you to specify filing destinations for an outgoing message during composition. Create new mailboxes as you go and set action reminders so you won't forget a vital task at a later date.

Bug-o-rama. Just check out the support page for this software on the developer's site and you'll see a really nice developer but a product that is ENDLESSLY updated with beta, after beta, after beta, with new bugs introduced each time.

I really like this developer but the product is clunky, and with Mavericks it's become unusable. Mail disappears after you file it. It reappears after you file it. It stops filing suggestions properly. It's UI becomes disconnected from the app.

IF this app were a $5, I'd not complain. But I paid full ride for this mofo, and I am not happy about it. Even after countless countless conversations with a friendly developer, it is simply a messy, overwrought system plagued with too many nerdy-features, while the one that most people need (filing on send and filtering) simply does not work well. Not at all.

Thanks for your comments. Mail plugins need to be updated regularly as new versions of Mail are released.

We have NEVER had a case of mail being deleted incorrectly, as MailHub a) uses the same filing routines of Mail, and b) MailHub will not change any of Mail.app's files directly, so if you uninstall MailHub, it will be as if it was never installed.

The issue mentioned on our forum about 'disappearing emails' has been updated by the customers who raised it to say all is well.

Please contact us for a refund.

BTW, how is our Mavericks version 'unusable', I believe that comment is demonstrably wrong.

You forget to mention that there is a free thirty-day trial: if our software is not what you like or expect, you lose nothing, and Mail will be left untouched.

Please note, one way to spread Fear-Uncertainty-Doubt about our product and to lose us custom is to extract some of the issues listed on our support page, and to present them out of context. Is that what you intended? As I understand it, a fair comment should be based on one's own issues, not other people's.

You might equally have mentioned how fast some of the issues get closed with our 'endless releases'.

Works very well. Makes my process of sorting e-mails much faster. That is great.

I've been using MailHub for about 18 months and have found it indispensable for Mail work flow. I bought it on MacUpdate Promo. The developer is super quick when responding to issues and problems. Recently, I found a bug which was promptly fixed and a new version was released.

Great software. I have found it helpful.

There is a new version that fixes the 10.8.4 problem. I went to the website and downloaded it. b59 seems to be the latest. (FYI MacUpdate)

OS 10.8.4 creates conflict for MailHub. Hope the developer issues a fix soon.

I've used Mailhub for over 2 years. I find it to be one of the most effective productivity enhancement add-on apps I have ever seen in 25 years of using a Macintosh computer. It is extraordinarily intuitive, effective and efficient.

There is little in the way of documentation... I guess because it is quite simple and easy to use. The learning curve is very short. Some of the preference settings are a bit confusing and would benefit from better explanation, but the default settings work really well.

I find that it has an uncanny ability to select the correct folder for storing out-going and in-coming mail. And, the developer responds quite quickly to tech questions. This is a great add-on to Mail.

I got this discounted with a MacUpdate Promo, and tried it for a month. I found it did not help me in the way it promised. First, there is practically no documentation, so with the exception of a brief walk through guide, you have to work through its operation on your own. Second, what I found was that because I already have dozens of mailboxes in which I keep mail, MailHub kept guessing wrong, wanting to file outgoing mail in obscure mailboxes no longer in use. It would do this over and over again. Ultimately, I just didn't see it as all that smart because of the amount of hand-holding it needed on my part. I think if you're organizing from scratch, it could work well but with a complex set of mailboxes in place already, it just kept getting in the way rather than helping. This meant I often had to do a second click on the nondefault Send button rather than an Enter to select the default Send and File button. One suggestion would be to write a good manual with plentiful examples so the user can understand why MailHub is choosing certain mailboxes. For me, I just couldn't connect with it and after a month, uninstalled it.

Hi Rowan, wrong suggestions are usually solved by excluding certain mailboxes from indexing, as described here: http://help.dervishsoftware.com/kb/troubleshooting/mailhub-isnt-showing-the-suggestions-i-expect. The algorithm for selecting a mailbox for outgoing mail is much simpler than for filing from the inbox: it has little information to go on apart from the 'to' address. It can be turned off in MailHub preferences. Our latest release also has a slightly tweaked algorithm that might help in your case.

I agree. Too complex to configure from base install. Some documentation, but not well written.

That said, it does everything it says, and once you learned the keyboard commands, and got everything tweaked just so, it is very comprehensive. I only get a couple of hundred emails a day, and two rules combined with MsgFiler solve all that.

I have a totally different and POSITIVE view about Mailhub. I've used it for over 2 years. I find it to be one of the most effective productivity enhancement add-on apps I have ever seen in my 25 years of using a Macintosh computer. It is extraordinarily effective and efficient.

Yes, there is little in the way of documentation... because it is really quite simple and self-evident. Some of the preference settings are a bit confusing and would benefit from better explanation, but the default settings work really well. Lastly, I find that it has an uncanny ability to select the correct folder for storing out-going and in-coming mail. I give Mailhub 5 STARS.

Great software, really, really good.

So,I bought it on January 3. "Serial number will be updated in your account within 24 hours", says MUPromo. Today is January 19. No serial, no response from MacUpdate to e-mail either. Developer is alive and kicking, at least he was when updating the software on January 15.

I wonder what will happen when the trial period expires.

Hi Pirx, as discussed by email, the issue was because you registered with a two-letter name, which was rejected by our license generator as too short. You were one of two people who had the same issue, and it is our fault that we didn't pick up on it earlier. We have changed our script to alert us for the same issue, for any promo we might do in the future. Please accept our apologies.

I've tried about every add-on to Apple Mail I can find, and still ended up disappointed with Apple Mail... and then I found MailHub and it does exactly what I need to quickly move emails to various folders. I'm super-impressed with this.

Installed the latest version today for Mountain Lion (10.8.2). No problems with the Installer, however, when I restart Mail after the install, I notice the plug-in is absent from the Preference Panel. Checked my User Library and plug-in is properly installed in the Mails Bundle folder.

There must be a compatibility issue with this latest beta version. Please fix!
