Mail Update for Mavericks

Apple released its Mail Update for Mavericks on November 7, 2013. The update “improves stability and compatibility with Gmail, and includes fixes for users with custom Gmail settings.”

MsgFiler 3 owners will want to install MsgFiler Engine 1.1.6 to continue enjoying fast filing performance.

Original MsgFiler Mail Plugin owners will need to install version 2.2.1.

Whenever Apple releases an update to OS X or Mail, Mail plugins such as MsgFiler are routinely disabled. We usually have, however, either a beta or a new version of the MsgFiler Engine and Original MsgFiler Mail Plugin available. So, if you receive an error from Mail that one of the plugins have been disabled, visit the support pages to download the latest versions.

Filed Messages Keep Reappearing in the Original Mailbox under OS X Mavericks?

OS X Mavericks changed the way it handles Google Mail accounts. Power users who have hidden the All Mail folder from appearing in Mail (via Google Mail’s Settings > Label) are experiencing the strange bug where messages are reappearing in the original mailbox after filing.

The solution is to show the All Mail folder in IMAP

Show All Mail Folder in IMAP - Gmail

Checking this box will cause OS X Mail to download all your Mail again, a process which can take a long time if you have a lot of email. It’s the only known workaround at this point to make filing work properly, whether you are using MsgFiler to file messages or drag and drop in Mail.

MsgFiler 3.1.2 Now Available

MsgFiler 3.1.2 was released to the App Store. There are three notable changes:

  1. Compatibility fixes. We resolved an error that was prevent MsgFiler from running on OS X Mavericks.
  2. MsgFiler Engine is now automatically activated in MsgFiler 3 if the OS X Mail plugin is installed. In previous versions of MsgFiler 3, the user had to manually re-activate the use of the MsgFiler Engine plugin in Preferences > Filing if the plugin were somehow disabled by OS X Mail (i.e. an OS update).
  3. Keep MsgFiler Open After Filing is now the default. Apple’s App Store review team rejected our MsgFiler submission unless this preference was changed. For optimal performance, we suggest unchecking this preference so that MsgFiler hides itself after filing a message. The preference is in MsgFiler Preferences > Filing.

In addition to MsgFiler 3.1.2, beta versions of the MsgFiler Engine and the Original MsgFiler Mail Plugin are now available. These plugins are necessary if you wish to use MsgFiler on OS X Mavericks.
