Greg Welch has tweaked his two Mail plugins, MailRecent and MailFollowUp, to make them Leopard-friendly and to introduce general improvements.
MailRecent (see the earlier Hawk Wings review post) is a quick filing plugin that lives in Mail.app’s Contextual menu. If you are not using Mail Act-on it offers a fast way to file messages into your most frequently used mailboxes, without the hassle of dragging them across to the Mailbox list.
The screenshot on the right shows it in action.
The version released today only runs on Leopard, although a Tiger Mail version is still available on Greg’s web site.
It is now “case-insensitive”, that is, it now lists mailboxes in alphabetical order whether they begin with a capital or lower case letter. Finally, he has added an uninstaller to the disk image, for easy removal.
MailRecent is freeware and is available from Greg’s web site .
MailFollowUp provides a clever tweak to the way Mail handles the carbon copying of emails to a group of recipients.
The new version (1.2), like MailRecent, only runs on Leopard. It too gets an uninstaller and has improved the logic of the replies even more. As Greg puts it, MailFollowUp is now “faster, smoother, and eliminates the occasional addition of the original sender to the To header”
Several localisations have also been improved.
MailFollowUp is also freeware and is available from Greg’s web site .
