    Here is the fix. I've just made it on my MBP after I ran the latest Securoty Update.

     

    It's ONLY about updating GrowlMail with the new UUIDs of Mail.app and Message.framework.

     

     

    Quit Mail first

     

    a/ Reinstall GrowlMail 1.2.5

    b/ Open your home directory ~/Library/Mail/Bundle/ folder

    c/ Locate inside the GrowlMail.mailbundle/Contents folder

    d/ Double-click on Info.plist to open it in the Property List Editor

    e/ Locate the  line SupportedPluginCompatibilityUUIDs and select it

    f/ Click on Add Child and enter that exact string as "item 0"  064442B6-53C0-4A97-B71B-2F111AE4195B

    g/ Click again on Add Child and enter that other string as "item 0" (the one above has become "item 1" 588FF7D1-4310-4175-9980-145B7E975C02

    h/ Save and quit the Property List Editor

     

    Open Mail ..

     

    The two new SupportedPluginCompatibilityUUIDs are :

     

     

    <string>588FF7D1-4310-4175-9980-145B7E975C02</string>    <!-- Message.framework -->

     

    <string>064442B6-53C0-4A97-B71B-2F111AE4195B</string>    <!-- Mail.app -->

    A big THANK YOU to lesse for the tip ... I was able to use it to get MailFollowUp working again (using jazzmosax's tip to change the names).

     

    It's a plugin I rely on, that is no longer updated for Snow Leopard, so thank you very much to the community for helping fix stuff when Apple randomly breaks things...

     

    (P.S.: Isn't disabling all add-ons a pretty lazy fix by Apple if their program doesn't handle them securely enough?)

    Thanks to all.

     

    The Terminal text worked perfectly: I used it to fix Letterbox and MailFollowUp.

     

    I found it also works for ASPBundle, a useful plugin which spots if I've forgotten to attach an attachment...

     

    (Mail Act-On and Dockstar both provide updates to make them compatible with this security update.).

     

    I agree with AlwaysWrite that very sloppy on the part of Apple to leave users to have to work through all of this - and without any warning that this will be the effect).

    Yes, that worked for the GrowlMail plugin for Mail 5.3 under OS X 10.7.5. Thank you so much. Can't believe that the Growl Developers are not working on this, and that the GrowlMail developers have not update this. Oh well.

     

    Thank you so much!

    Hello jcrduboudin

     

    Not sure how you would roll back. Maybe do a complete restore from a backup? I personally wouldn't go back, but try to apply one of the fixes as listed in this thread. It sure worked for me and I get my growlmail notifications again. Worth a try.

    I agree with Martin, why would you want to? There's better things in the Update that make up for the lack of Growl Mail notifications...and, if you read the posts of others (and mine, scroll up a bit), you should be able to get those working again as well.

    I've got several Mail plugins that did not work after running the "SecUpd2012-004" Security Update, which updated Mail.app from v4.5 to v4.6, and I'm sure there are others of you out there who ran into the same consequential problem.

     

    Here is the downloadable fix I found, developed by Code2K:Labs:

    Thanks for the link. Tried this after looking for a solution, and it worked perfectly! Wish I had found this several days ago. This was totally automatic no manual entrieswith Text Wrangler.

    I tried several approaches. None worked until I restarted my computer.

     

    My final attempt was using JML54's solution on Sept. 22, 2012. Then, before opening Mail, I restarted the computer. When my Mac restarted, Letterbox was running again just like always.

    Which plist do you refer to, the com.growl.GrowlMail.plist in User/Library/Preferences or the

    info.plist in the GrowlMail plugin bundle?

    My GrowlMail bundles shows all these so not quite sure what to do with the two UUID's mentioned.

    I was only worried about Letterbox. Not sure if this will help with Growl. The files you want to edit will be in the disabled plugins folder.

     

    Here's the previous post from JML54 on Sept 22, 2012:

     

    In Snow Leopard, I was able to re-enable these plugins without Terminal, using TextWrangler to edit the plist files:

     

    ASPBundle.mailbundle

    Letterbox.mailbundle

    MailFollowUp.mailbundle

    MailRecent.mailbundle

     

    Open the folder with the disabled plugins.  Then, right-click on the plugin and show the package contents.  Find the plist file.  Using TextWrangler, edit the plist file by adding these lines to the UUID listing:

     

        <string>064442B6-53C0-4A97-B71B-2F111AE4195B</string>   

        <string>588FF7D1-4310-4175-9980-145B7E975C02</string>

     

    Save the file.  Put the disabled plugins back into the Bundles folder and open Mail.

     

     

    I was only concerned with Letterbox. After adding the above UUID lines to the Letterbox.mailbundle file, I closed it, and restarted my computer before launching Mail again. Only then did the changes I made to the mailbundle file remain. Every other time I made changes and then launch Mail, the edits would be removed and the Letterbox.mailbundle file would be moved to the disabled plugins folder. So, try that. Edit the file, then immediately restart your computer before running Mail.

    Hello, Apparently Objective Decision released a new version after this apple Javav upgrade, but after warned them about this trouble, they did not changed anything so the only working solution is to mannually deplace the new ? version of ODMail.bundle inside the ressource folder of the contactizer app folder [access by right button open this paquage, or something like that.]

    So open  ODMailbundle.bundle you extract from the contactizer app folde, and modify it as indicated here

    adding the 2 strings

    <string>064442B6-53C0-4A97-B71B-2F111AE4195B</string>

    <string>588FF7D1-4310-4175-9980-145B7E975C02</string>

     

    Save the file. put the bundle in bundle folder of mail.app in libraries/mail/bundles and open Mail. It seems to be not rejected.

    If you open contactizer before doing this you will have an error message telling you contactizer will not be able to connect to mail.app. dont worry, the software try to find the original dundle inside the ressources folder and try to download a new version . Close contactizer, If you didn't already  put the bundle in bundle folder of mail.app in libraries/mail/bundles.

    lauch contactizer, everything is all right.

    I have added the UUIDS (all of them) by the terminal and confirmed their existance by opening the plist file in Xcode.

     

    Unfortunately, it is still not working but I wonder if I have the correct UUIDs as this seems to be the current fix. 

     

    Setup:

    Mail 5.3 (1283)

    Growl 2.0 purchased via App Store and updated to the 9/19/2012 update.

     

    Current UUIDS:

    758F235A-2FD0-4660-9B52-102CD0EA897F

    3335F782-01E2-4DF1-9E61-F81314124212

    064442B6-53C0-4A97-B71B-2F111AE4195B

    588FF7D1-4310-4175-9980-145B7E975C02

     

    The last two being added on a lark to see if it would work.

     

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

     

    EDIT:

     

    Solution found.  UUIDs required for my setup 758Fxxx abd 3335Fxxx.  A typo in the defaults command added to SupportedPluginCompatibilityUUIDS instead of SupportedPluginCompatibilityUUIDs.  When viewed in Xcode, I didn't register the two different entries until after posting.

     

    Works like a charm now.
