MarkAsReadDelay function

"After much deliberation, engineering has removed this feature."

does any clever programming bod know if there is a way around this if apple removed MarkAsReadDelay?
God knows why Apple removed it - is puts those who feel comfortable with outlook or those who have large mail databases like me with many accounts accidentally clicking mails open when you open the mail client.

I have no idea what kind of deliberation Apple committed to this feature, but it obviously involved a lot of tequila and cocaine. This is a pretty reason for me to get the hell away from the Mac Mail app.

Possible Alternative

Hi guys - I did see an alternative to TruePreview here: http://www.indev.ca/MailActOn.html

It's not freeware, but they do have a trial version. The Mavericks version is only in beta at the mo (link at the top-right of the page), but i'm using it and it *seems* ok so far (i've only had it for a day though!)

Couldn't find much on the developer 'Indev' though... but seems legit.... i hope :-/

Did anyone see this ticket?

http://christianserving.org/project/...iew/ticket/201

try this: http://code2k.net/products/mailpluginfix/
this tool simply updates the uuids in the plugin's .plist file

it's working for me at Mail Version 7.0 (1822) with all plugins I use:
TruePreview (latest: 1.8a7), NoFlaggedMailbox, MailFollowUp, etc.

Yes - I just tried that actually.
Although it did get rid of the 'incompatible plugin' message when launching Mail.app, and it also showed the TruePreview preference pane in Mail Preferences, sadly it didn't *fix* things such that TruePreview actually functioned (i.e. emails were still being automatically marked as 'read', irrespective of the settings on the preference pane).
Maybe it works for some others, but sadly not for me :-(

Very sad this. Navigating around mailboxes is really stupid as mails get read when moving around. I use to use MarkAsReadDelay before Apple removed the feature. Thanks for the reply though - my only advice is tell apple we want
MarkAsReadDelay back so we can manually mark mails as read!

Giving Up

Per the recommendation/suggestion of a previous poster, I installed the trial of Mail Act-On So far, it works great. Just make sure you get "version 3".

As they noted, it's not free. On the other hand, neither is having to worry about something so breaking each time there is a minor upgrade, then waiting and having to come up with a solution for something that should be a given. I'm still using the beta, but unless something major changes in the next few weeks, I'm afraid I've given up on TruePreview.

Thanks wbdzynr! Mail Act-On works fine for me. As I can see nothing is happening to true preview so maybe after the trial period I will buy Act-On.
