WideMail and Lion

July 20th, 2011

With the release of Mac OS X Lion, Apple have included a widescreen and two-line view right into Mail.app, since this is the case WideMail will not be available for Mac OS X Lion and higher.

WideMail will continue to be available for users who choose to continue to run Mac OS X Snow Leopard for a period of time.

Cheers,

Dane

WideMail is Broken!!?!

June 17th, 2010

Hi Everyone,
Once again I apologise for being slack and not updating this site and getting an updated release in time for 10.6.4.
However, this weekend I will work on getting an official release which will also have a bug fix for the “blank subject” bug.
I am actually taking 3 months off of my day job to travel to Florida and holiday/visit friends/try new things (which include dedicating more time to WideMail) so this will allow me to get a bit more done.

Hopefully you have seen that I have moved WideMail website to widemailplugin.com and it will live here now.

Talk Soon

2.0pr1 Uninstall Process & Extra Notes

December 28th, 2009

If you have issues with WideMail crashing please try the bug workarounds in my previous post and also check what other plugins you have installed in Mail.app WideMail has a few incompatibilities with plugins such as: GrowlMail, Letterbox.

To completely remove WideMail from your system follow these steps:

Delete the files located at:
Where ~ is your home directory

~/Library/Mail/Bundles/WideMail.mailbundle

~/Library/Preferences/com.daneharnett.widemail.plist

Bug Workarounds

December 26th, 2009

A couple of bugs seem to be common and I believe I have a workaround for them.

If Mail.app is crashing or freezing while scrolling or the WideMail column will not stay between mailbox switches try these options:

Delete the WideMail prefs located at: ~/Library/Preferences/com.daneharnett.widemail.plist
where (~ is your home directory)

WideMail has a problem with “messages with blank subjects” to rectify this add a character or extra token to the line that contains “Subject”.

Hopefully this helps everyone and I’ll be working to fix these bugs in the near future.

Merry Christmas! WideMail for Snow Leopard Public Beta

December 25th, 2009

Hi All,

I’m very pleased to announce the pre-release of WideMail for Snow Leopard!

At this time WideMail is in public beta status (in other words: try it at your own risk, however it should be fairly stable).

This version is available for SNOW LEOPARD ONLY! It should work on 10.6.0, 10.6.1 & 10.6.2

Each new OS release will require an update to WideMail.

If you require WideMail for 10.5.x then you should use version 0.5.1

You can download WideMail for Snow Leopard here.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Dane Harnett & WideMail Team.
