Mail Capitan Sale on Numerous Apple Mail Plug-ins

Do you use Apple Mail on your Mac? If so, note that 15 indie developers who create plug-ins for Apple Mail have banded together to offer their El Capitan-ready utilities at discounts ranging from 33 to 90 percent. In “Take Control of Apple Mail,” Joe Kissell says that he’d probably switch to another email client if it weren’t for Mail’s extensibility — along with AppleScript, he relies heavily on the plug-ins CargoLifter, Mail Act-On, MailTags, QuoteFix, and GPGMail. The first three of these aren’t free, but all are 50 percent off in the Mail Capitan sale through 18 October 2015. In fact, you can also save 50 percent on “Take Control of Apple Mail” itself in the sale, so this is a great opportunity to read about numerous useful Mail plug-ins and get those that will make Mail work better for you.

I used to love Mail Act-On. And I love the developers at indev. They are always so friendly and responsive.

Unfortunately, even since Yosemite Mail Act-On no longer works if you have a Japanese keyboard also installed. You can't type characters in the main menu to search for labels for actions. Even English characters. Apparently the mere existence of the Japanese keyboard breaks things in the latest OS X versions.

I see this has not been fixed in the new version for El Capitan. I tried it today.

So I had to give up using Mail Act-On, and without it Mail is so hard to use for filing things in Gmail I had to give up Apple Mail and have been using Mailplane ever since.

If indev would fix that bug I would love to purchase and try it again. Until it broke it had been working fine!
