Greg Welch has updated his MailFollowup plugin. (See an earlier Hawk Wings post for more information on how this plugin can make your conversations smarter.)
He has added a toolbar icon, smarter handling of multiple email accounts, new and nice install options and reworked the logic for formulating replies.
The toolbar icon can be added through the Customizise panel:
(It looks a little out of place here because I have stripped out the icon “lozenges”. Normally it looks just fine.)
People with multiple accounts will be glad to hear that the plugin now automatically identifies which account the original was sent to and uses the same account to compose the reply.
Greg, who looks rather too well-dressed to be a developer, has also worked hard on the installer.
It now lists the names of all your other installed plugins, offers to do a complete backup your Mail folder and preferences to your Desktop and warns you if the bundle compatibility is incorrectly set.
Last of all, he has changed the logic on how the replies create cc and/or bcc for the original and/or followup sender. Some additional unusual cases are handled better, and the overall process is faster.
MailFollowup is freeware and available from Greg’s web site .
