DT3 - cannot install Mail plugin


  1. I had DEVONthink Pro Office 2 installed.

  2. Then I installed DEVONthink Pro 3.

  3. Then uninstalled DEVONthink Pro Office 2 using:


To remove (uninstall) DEVONthink Pro Office completely from your Mac, trash the following files and folders (~ stands for your Home folder):

  • DEVONthink Pro Office
  • ~/Library/Application Support/DEVONthink Pro 2
  • ~/Library/Mail/Bundles/DEVONthink.mailbundle
  • ~/Library/Preferences/com.devon-technologies.thinkpro.*
  • All DEVONthink Pro Office-specific scripts in ~/Library/Scripts/
  • All DEVONthink Pro Office-specific workflows in ~/Library/Workflows/
  • All DEVONthink Pro Office-specific scripts in ~/Library/PDF Services/
  • Dashboard widgets
  • Bookmarklets from your web browser
  • The reference to the global inbox folder in your Finder’s sidebar
  • Keychain entries containing “devoncloudy”
  1. Try to install plugins for DEVONthink Pro 3 but for Mail plugin get the following error message:

Please check your write permissions and the amount of free space in your home “Library/Mail/Bundles” folder.

Attached is a screenshot of the error message and the permissions for ~Library/Mail/Bundles.

I would be grateful to know how to overcome this problem.

I solved the problem by granting full disk access to DEVONthink 3 in System Preferences / Security & Privacy / Privacy
