How many technicians does it take to change a light bulb?
"None, we have that same bulb here in our lab and it works fine."
Joking aside, sorry... tried your snippet and it works as would be expected. Time to start narrowing the source of the problem down; try it in another OS X account on the same computer, repair permissions, look at your logs, run all relevant software updates, temporarily move your ~/Library/Mail folder to eliminate it as a factor, etc.
Let us know what happens, especially if you get it working again. Best,
I did get it working while trying to find the culprit. I have both MailTags and Mail Act-On from http://indev.com installed.
1. I tried the script on another, similarly set up machine---it failed.
2. I quit Mail.app.
3. I moved my MailTags Preferences, together with ~/Library/MailTags.mailbundle and ~/Library/MailTags Extras to a folder on the desktop.
4. I restarted Mail.app.
5. The script worked.
6. I quit Mail.app.
7. I put my MailTags Preferences and ~/Library/MailTags.mailbundle back where they belonged.
8. The script worked.
9. I quit Mail.app.
10. I put ~/Library/MailTags Extras back where it belonged.
11. The script worked. MailTags' behavior was also unchanged.
So... in the end, I now have just what I had before, but the script works fine. There must've been some sort of cruft in some cache which got cleared out when MailTags was not loaded once.
