DEVONthink and Mac OS X 10.6.1’s Mail.app

Just a quick note that Mac OS X 10.6.1 again breaks compatibility with the earliert version of the Mail.app plug-in. You may should know that Apple Mail does not support third-party plugins at all so what we did is basically a hack (one reason we did not make a plug-in for Safari but a bookmarklet). The solution is simple: choose Help > Install Add-ons… and re-install the Mail.app plug-in to update it. This installs a newer version of the plug-in which will happily work with 10.6.1.

  1. Just reinstall the Mail plugin through the Help > Install Add-ons and it will work again. You may have to do this for every new version of Mail or Mac OS X 10.6.x.

  2. I concur with Annard. Installed just fine with 10.6.1.

    Purchased and installed DTPro Office 2.0 pb7 09/26/09 on iMac running Snow 10.6.1. Mail plugin does not work. I have tried various fixes including: 1) creating bundles folder, 2) reinstalling Plug-in, 3) reinstalling DTPro Office, 4) Repairing permissions, 5) rebooting. No success.

    A quick question: where can I download the mail.app plug-in? My Google-fu has failed and I can’t find it at devon-technologies.com .

    Thanks in advance for any help!
