Here’s my list – the top 10 plug-ins, add-ons, scripts, and helpful apps that every Apple Mail user should have. The best stuff is at the top:
- MailTags. (That was easy). Just get it.
- Mail Act-on. Sorting emails on the fly with user-defined rules.
- MailAppetizer. Beautiful and useful “in your face”
- Mail Scripts. Excellent
AppleScriptsfor Mail.app. I haven’t blogged them in detail. Andreas Amann’s own web site is the best introduction.
- Mail Stamps. Those lozenge-shaped buttons in Mail 2.0! What were they thinking? Banish them forever.
- MailUnreadStatusBar. Discreet and useful notification.
- JunkMatcher or SpamSieve. It’s a draw for me which of these offers the better additional protection from spam.
- Take Control of Apple Mail in Tiger. The only book dedicated to help you get the most out of Mail 2.0. Packed full of tips and other goodness.
- QuickSilver. Generally excellent and the most valuable third-party app I use. It sneaks in here because you can also email files directly from its interface and do lots of other neat things. Free. Astonishingly.
- Spell Catcher X. Spell checker, snippet manager, on the fly formatter. Useful in Mail.app and elsewhere.
There are lots more that didn’t make it due simply to the way I use Mail. But you can find them all in the Hawk Wings Plug-in and Add-on List.
- The Hawk Wings’ plug-in list is born!
- Weekly Update
- Top Ten Spam Subject Lines in 2005
- Betalogue on text replacement in Mail.app
- Spell Catcher X Lite: Faster, cleaner, cheaper typing and snippets
