Mail scripts is DEAD IN THE WATER. Mavericks and Lion ruined it by removing PERL among other thinks. The developer has BAILED.

Running Mac OS X Mountain Lion, 10.8.3, this installs. Some of its included scripts DO work, and some don't.

Seems to work:
- Export Addresses
- Search Addresses

Some error - didn't seem to work:
- Remove Duplicates

Doesn't even open:
- Archive Messages

I didn't test the others.

I read a lot of things about Applescripts and Lion. Many do not work anymore or at least not 100%.

Has this been tested with Lion already?

I was looking around for an application that would let me 'archive' mail to my Mac. Specifically I wanted to create a folder with a PDF or rich text file for each archived message, and for it to handle attachments. I did look at a couple of commercial apps but they seemed to have shortcomings. Then I stumbled across these scripts.

I used the Archive script on a Snow Leopard 10.6.5 system to archive several IMAP folders for Gmail that were in Mail.app (4.4). It worked a treat! I was easily able to run a job, select the mail folder I wanted then create an 'rtf' or an rtfd (for emails with attachments) for each message, and was even able to customize the file titles, e.g. date, sender, subjects, etc.

A great find!

I have close to 15,000 emails that i'm merging from my paid hotmail account to my MobileMe 60gig account. Thought it was going to be impossible but its rather easy. i have about 27 folders worth of emails divided with different people, subjects, etc and so after transfering them from hotmail folders to Mail.app folders, my rules duplicated 1000's of emails. i was going through them one by one for the last few days and thought, Damn there has to be a better way. Thanks to Mail Scripts 2.10 its working like a dream in Snow Leopard. Thanks Man!! you made my life 100x's easier

The license is free, but the author accepts donations. If we're going to use this kind of app, it wouldn't hurt us to send the author a few dollars.

Indeed, Zeb, and you'll be glad to know I am a committed contributor to smaller devs who produce useful without the massive price tags we so often see from the pan-globals.

My 'is good' comment was more to quantify what I think of the scripts than what I think of the price.

Mostly works as advertised. Installed and (for the most part) runs fine on my Intel iMac, OS X 10.5.6.

I did find that the "Find Duplicates" does not find all duplicates. Some but not all. I fiddled around with the options a few times.

Also, I have a few HUGE mailboxes I am exporting into files. The smaller boxes go great, the larger one came back with a "TIMED OUT" message about 600 messages into the export. I am trying it again to see if it succeeds this time or not.

Make sure it's an "Admin" account you're using to attempt to install it.

This most likely is due to some installer screwing up permissions in your user library folder (Palm Desktop is one of the know culprits for things like this...). Issue the following command in the Terminal and you should be able to run the Installer after that:
sudo chown -R `whoami` ~/Library/Scripts
(you will have to enter an administrator password).

P.S.: You probably get better support for issues like these by sending me an email - I only check the comments here sporadically...

I mainly needed the Remove Duplicate Emails script. I tried it on boxes containing thousands of emails of which i know a couple hundred are duplicates.

It found 2.

Very good job. The Filter Snt Messages saved me a lot of work. I just wish it had a script the remove messages from server to attach to a rule.

Crunc had trouble on 13 Apr 2010
I just tried this app with the sole purpose of using it delete duplicate messages and it was an utter failure. It searches my inbox, and while I can see multiple duplicates numbering in the 100s, it fails to find a single duplicate. I even tried selecting all mailboxes and it did find one duplicate, but that was it. Could this problem be due to my using Mail.app with Exchange?

If anyone knows of another tool to get rid of duplicates I'd appreciate it.

I also use this primarily for removing duplicates. I originally had the same experience with it not finding duplicates where i knew there were hundreds due to my being on some mailing lists with a lot of cross-posting.

The devs told me whether or not it finds any or not depends tremendously on whether you have the "Ignore headers when comparing" box checked. This really will do a *fair* job.

Then again, I too would like a more sophisticated tool for removing duplicate emails. I haven't yet found a satisfactory app or script, even among ones which say they do so. Those are usually just file comparitors and won't do much with email with even the slightest differences in the headers.

I too primarily need the "Find Duplicates" functionality.

Both when i was on my G4, and now on my Mac Pro, i can execute it on directories i am *certain* contain dozens of duplicates and it fails to find any.

  • Archive Messages (Mail): Move messages from the selected mailbox(es) to an archive mailbox or export them to standard mbox or plain text files for backup purposes or import into other applications. You can select to move all messages or only messages sent within or certain period as well filter messages based on their read and flagged status.
  • Change SMTP Server (Mail): Switch between different already defined SMTP servers or define a new one. This is especially useful if you are using your computer in more than one location and have to switch servers for several accounts at once.
  • Create Rule (Mail): Create a new rule based on the first of the selected messages. This saves you the trouble of copy/pasting address or other info between the message and the rule window and provides a much quicker way for setting up a rule with multiple criteria/actions.
  • Remove Duplicates (Mail): Locate all duplicate messages found in the selected mailbox(es) and move them to a separate mailbox for easy removal (duplicate matching is based on the unique message header "Message-Id").
  • Schedule Delivery (Mail): Allows you to send individual messages at predefined times (this script uses iCal for scheduling message delivery).
  • Send all Drafts (Mail): Immediately send all messages in the "Drafts" folders for all accounts. This saves you from having to open each draft in order to send it.
  • Open Mailbox, Open Message (Mail): Two small faceless scripts which will open mailboxes with new messages or the new messages themselves when run as a rule action.
  • Filter Sent Messages (Mail): Another faceless scripts which will apply your rules to the messages in the "Sent" mailbox.
  • Export Addresses (Address Book): Export addresses from the Address Book into tab-delimited text files. You can select which groups and which fields you want to export.
  • Search Addresses (Address Book): Find all addresses inside the Address Book matching one or more criteria. As opposed to the "Search" function built into the Address Book, this lets you search in any field as well as for empty and non-empty fields. As an example, you might use this script to search for all phone numbers with a certain area code in order to update your contacts after an area code change.


Mail Scripts are fully localized in English, German, Dutch, French, Italian, Greek, Brazilian Portuguese, and Norwegian.
