Hi Bill – Thanks for your reply, I understand when you said DTPO 2.2 should “theoretically” work with Lion Mail. BUT please read my first post – which stated I did install Add-Ons numerous times without DTPO, but each time after Mail Quit and restart, the exact complain came of the program.
At this point, Is there some preferences file I have to remove? The 2.2 version was upgraded using the in-app Spackle framework, should I attempt to “reinstall”?
I’d like to hope I am not as much of an idiot as you might think I am glad it works for you, but unfortunately some of us are not so lucky.
Numerous times have I deleted the plugin, re-installed the plugin (the way you described, and manually by copying it out of the DTPO app bundle), restarted Mail, rebooted the machine, played around with the BundleCompatibilityVersion default (values 1 through 5, also deleted it), all to no avail. Every time I end up with the popup described by lamp.
I never saw any request for a plugin update, only said message stating that the plugin is not compatible (which only has an “Ok”-button, but no “Cancel”-button). The plugin will then be moved into a “Bundles (Disabled)” folder by Mail.
All the other plugins I have installed (Herald, MailActOn, MailFollowUp, MailRecent) work just fine.
Perhaps there’s an important variable here. I have only the one Mail plugin, whereas you have several. That raises the possibility of interactions among the plugins. Maybe that’s why DTPO’s Mail plugin is working on my Mac, and not on yours.
As Voltaire’s Pangloss said, “This is the best of all possible worlds.” That’s another way of saying “Life is hard.” Apple’s new Lion makes a lot of code changes in the operating system. Those of us who dive into the “.0” version of a major OS release often have an interesting ride. Both Apple and application developers will discover surprises that couldn’t have been discovered in even the most elaborate beta testing. That’s why maintenance releases will come.
For the time being, my working databases are on a Mac running under Snow Leopard. I copy them onto a Mac running Lion and play with them there, getting experience with the new OS environment. Backups are highly recommended!
The Mail plug-in does work fine on my Lion machine and I am no expert so the chance is high that I am of no help for you.
But still a quick thought: Did you have the letterbox plug-in installed under Snow Leopard? It is redundant and most certainly defunct under Lion as the new Mail already has a three pane view mode. But maybe there are some leftovers from letterbox? Plus, I remember—I have been using Letterbox under Snow Leopard, but I have deinstalled it before going to 10.7—that Letterbox came with a plug-in manager. Maybe that one is still active and causing the conflict with den DEVONthink plug-in?
No I don’t have Letterbox. I kept trying to install Apple Mail Plugin in Mail Add-on in Lion, (At first DTPO did not complain when it is installed in ~/Library/Mail/Bundles/DevonMailConduit-SnowLeopard.mailbundle is created). When Mail.app is first launched, it kept saying the bundle is incompatible per my previous messages, and the Mail Plugin is moved to ~/Library/Mail/Bundles (Disabled). Doing the install again only created another folder, ~/Library/Mail/Bundles (Disabled 1)
I do have three other plugins, MailActOn, MailTags and OmniFocus plugin, all three are compatible, working, and updated for Lion. I tried moving them out of ~/Library/Mail/Bundles, and tried installing DTPO Mail plugin, it still does not work.
After wasting hours on this, I’m giving up. I’m also opening a bug count on this if the support team is not aware of this.
Yes, i tried to install it after the update but in fact I have never used the plugin and Idon’t I it has ever work in my Mail.
After the update, i check install mail plugin in Install Add-Ons and now each time Mail launch, he told me the message ever cited that this plugin wasn’t compatible.
But the script “Add message to DevonThink” works in the script menubar.
