version 4.2.7


MailWing is an organizer and archiver for Apple’s Mail. It requires Apple’s Mail and OS X Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion or Mountain Lion.

It links any On My Mac mailbox to a unique Finder folder and moves messages into these linked folders. Route messages to these mailboxes manually or automatically, using Mail's Rules. The linked folders can be located anywhere you wish, such as with a project, an account, an interest group or a client folder. Copies of unread messages are labeled gray and the linked folder is opened showing messages ready-to-read.

Mail's original copy of the message is moved to the Trash mailbox where it is retained until it is later archived to the Mail-Safe Archive, then deleted from Mail.

All messages are saved as individual .emlx files (without file conversion) which retain attachments and are simply Mail documents which are opened by Mail when double-clicked. These documents may be Replied, Redirected, Forwarded, Bounced and Printed by Mail just like any other messages. (But they cannot be Junked, Deleted or Flagged by Mail.)

Copies of messages made by MailWing are presented in the Finder in a List View window where:

  1. The file name is the message’s Subject;

  2. The modification date is the Date Sent; and

  3. The comment is the To: address (for sent mail) or From: address (for received mail).

This allows you to easily identify messages in a List View Finder window. MailWing also preserves the threading of mailboxes Organized by Thread by creating Subject folders.

MailWing Dock Menu — Installs with the click of a button. Gives you instant access to MailWing, the Help document, the Mail-Safe Archive, the Tools and each of your linked folders organized exactly as in Mail. May also be installed in DragThing and alternate dock or menu bar launchers.

The Mail-Safe Archive (available only with activation) — Messages in the Trash mailbox are archived into a “Mail-Safe Archive” folder as they become outdated, then deleted from Mail. The “Mail-Safe Archive” folder is organized into year-numbered folders, containing month-numbered folders, containing day-numbered folders. If you have a requirement to maintain an e-mail archive, Mail-Safe Archive may meet your needs.

You no longer have to agonize over deleting old mail. Simply archive everything to Mail-Safe where it’s out of sight. If you ever need to see an old message, it’s easily found with a Spotlight search. Saved searches work just like Mail's Smart Mailboxes.

Demo Mode — This application is fully functional, except the Mail-Safe Archive, for a period of 30 days following installation, after which continued use requires purchase of an activation key (US$9.95).

MailWing replaces Mail Saver. Your Mail Saver activation key works for MailWing.
