Mail Scripts — all the little things that should be in Mail but were left out
(no longer actively supported)

Mail Scripts Icon

Current Version: 2.10.3

Even though the Mail application included with MacOS X is a great program, it has some serious shortcomings in its implementation. Thankfully both, Mail and Address Book have large AppleScript dictionaries which allow almost every aspect of the programs to be scripted.
Mail Scripts is a collection of scripts that try to fill this gap — among others, it includes scripts to archive mail messages, filter sent messages, send messages at a later time, and export addresses into text files. All scripts are AppleScript Studio applications with a complete UI and are localized into various languages.

Mail Scripts 2.2.3 has been named as one of the "60 Must-Have Utilities for Next to Nothing (or Nothing at All)" in the November 2004 edition of MacWorld and received a rating of 3.5 mice!
Mail Scripts 2.2.1 has been named as one of the "25 Terrific Tools — All-purpose utilities that every Mac owner should know about" in the August 2004 edition of MacWorld!
Mail Scripts 1.3.7 has been included on The VersionTracker Editors' Picks CD Vol. #1!

Miscellaneous AppleScripts

AppleScript Icon

Over the course of writing Mail Scripts, I learned a good deal about the quirks and features of AppleScript in general as well as relating to Mail. In addition to the suite of AppleScript Studio applications released a Mail Scripts, I also write a few other small scripts. Since they have no nice interface, are not localized into anything other than English, and might not work on system 10.3.x like Mail Scripts, I decided to not package them with Mail Scripts but rather release them as individual scripts.
The scripts highlight some less-used features of some of the AppleScript dictionaries and will hopefully be helpful to others to figure out how to do certain things which weren't all that obvious to me on the first try.

Eudora vCard Export
(no longer actively supported)

Eudora vCard Export Icon

Current Version: 1.2.4

Eudora stores its nicknames in a format which cannot be shared with other applications. Eudora vCard Export converts nicknames to vCards which can then easily be imported into other programs (Mac OS X Address Book, Palm Desktop 4, Entourage X…) or moved to your iPod.
