    I've always had applescripts setup to do various tasks when I'm away from my computer.

    But since installing OS X ML the mail app doesn't seem to let me load/run them.
    It just says this

    'No scripts installed', and it won't let me pick them from the finder either.

    What does no scripts installed mean and how the heck do I install them?

    What happens when you select "Open in Finder"?

    It just opens a finder window but doesn't let me 'load' or select any scripts, try it yourself.

    So when you browse to a script and click on it, what happens?

    <<So when you browse to a script and click on it, what happens? >>

    Simply opens the applescript in Automator

    script is stored under /Library/Services

    This is the answer. Mail rules is looking for scripts in ~/Library/Application Scripts/com.apple.mail/

    Put your script in that folder and Mail will see it in that rule drop down.

    Your script must be saved as text with .applescript file suffix
