Mail Rules seem not to evoke an applescript when set to do so automatically.
Set a rule up so it flags a message then evokes an applescript. Mail will flag the message but not call the applescript.
If the Apply Rules menu item is then selected it will run the Applescript.
Really annoying Apple that you have broken this fro Mavericks.
Anyone out there got a workaround?
Tried experimenting and found that by adding the mail account in the rules preferences is more reliable to call the applescript or any other rule for that matter BUT when the applescript is called it does not process all the script
When this rule is called automatically it will display “working” but then does not process the rest of the script
When highlighted and Apply Rules is applied the script runs normally.
using terms from application "Mail"
on perform mail action with messages these_messages for rule this_rule
tell application "Mail"
set the message_count to the count of these_messages
repeat with i from 1 to the message_count
set this_message to item i of these_messages
display dialog "working"
set theContent to (content of this_message as string)
display dialog theContent
set theSubject to (subject of this_message as string)
display dialog theSubject
end perform mail action with messages
end using terms from
Whats going on. Can anyone replicate this in Mavericks?
