[solved] Plugin for Applemail is not installed or enabled

Any instructions on how to deinstall and reinstall the AppleMail Plugin?

Have you activated the plugin in Mail (Preferences/General/Manage Plugins)? You need to reactivate after updating, if you have not yet done so.

/Users/yourusername/Library/Application Support/Mail/Plug-ins/Bundles/Users/yourusername/Library/Mail/Bundles contains the plugin. My guess is that if you delete it there and restart both Mail and DT, DT would recognise that the plugin is no longer there. But as I said, check first that it is actually activated. And yes, that path really is convoluted.

Thank you for the lead.
Yes. The plugin was not activated. Thank you. Functioning now.

setting up brand new Mac, my Mail.app doesn’t have a “manage plugins” in preferences on the general tab. I recall seeing this on my old Mac, but it’s missing from the new one. nothing in ~/Library/Application Support/ for Mail at all (the Mail folder doesn’t even exist). Devonthink says it’s installed the plug in.

oops, never mind this post by BLUEFROG in a thread titled:
“Mac OS Big Sur and Mail plugin”
showed me how to fix it.

had to quite mail and devothink, delete the plugin (in ~/Library/Mail/) and then launch devonthink, install the plugin again, then was able to launch mail and enable the plugin.
