Download of 1.0.7 gives me a volume with 6.7 MB on it, but the contents are hidden.

I tried the various tricks described in the FAQ at the Herald website. Still no luck.

I got it to install when I logged under a greatly simplified account. I suspect there's a conflict with something else in my standard configuration. SpamSieve?

Something that's strange about this Herald installer is that it asks, "How do you want to install this software?" While most installers ask if I want to install it for everyone or for only one user, Herald's installer offers only a single choice, "Install for me only."

Herald-the-Third -- I believe that you're describing the following (from
In Finder, select the menu item "Go" > "Go to Folder..." and enter "~/Library" (without the quotes). Make sure it is "~/Library" (with the squiggle in front) and not "/Library". Then navigate to the "Mail" folder. From there, select the "Bundles" folder and go to "File" > "Get Info". At the bottom of the info window there is a "Sharing & Permissions" section. Click the lock at the bottom to unlock. Then click the "+" button, select yourself, and give yourself "Read & Write" privileges. (If the "Herald.mailbundle" folder already exists in the "Bundles" folder, do the same thing for that folder also).

If this still doesn't work, it's possible that your Mail bundles were disabled somehow. Open terminal and type:

defaults write EnableBundles -bool YES
defaults write BundleCompatibilityVersion 5

I did all of this, and it still fails to install properly.

Even though the installer kept giving me error messages, apparently it succeeded in installing Herald correctly. It's working under OS X 10.7.2, and I'm happy for that!

I'm quite happy with this application. It's been a huge help, as the IT security Nazis have insisted on passwords so obscure that no human being could possibly remember them. (In Dilbert's words, from now on, all passwords must include letters, digits, sign language and squirrel noises.)

And at the price, mSecure is a bargain.
