Growl

Disable Incompatible GrowlMail Plugin in OSX 10.8

After upgrading to OSX 10.8, I no longer needed Growl installed because of the built-in notification system. After uninstalling Growl, I fould that GrowlMail was still installed and was keeping my Mail program from starting automatically. You can remove this plug-in manually by turning off mail, and then removing ~/Library/Mail/Bundles/GrowlMail.mailbundle

Getting Growl Running with Mac Mail 4.5

If you haven't installed Growl yet on your Mac to handle notifications, then you should do it now. And if you did have it installed, you probably saw it disappear during the last system update numbered 10.6.7, which updated Mail to 4.5. As for now, there is not an official release of Growl for the newest release of Mail (or the previous Mail 4.4), so to get it all running you are going to need to do a little poking around the preference files. The good news is that the only change needed is to simply tell the growl plugin that it is compatible with the newest version of mail.
