A Temporary Fix To One Mail Bug

/ 18 April 2007

A while back I mentioned a bug in Mail.app that isn’t as much a bug as it is a flaw. Today I found a Mail plugin that provides a fix for this flaw. The plugin is called DockStar. It adds the ability to add 4 more indicators to Mail’s dock icon. In this way I used it to transfer the default indicators feeding mailbox preference to my own smart mailbox instead of the main inbox and added two other indicators (one for the mail inbox and one for my drafts). This is a way that those of us who are organized enough to have Mail sort our incoming messages can still take advantage of Mail indicators.
