GrowlMail not working in SL

Didn't have Growl installed previously. Installed Growl 1.25b and then GrowlMail. Everything installed just fine and I've checked that Growl is running and that GrowlMail shows Enabled. But I still get no notification that new mail has arrived.

Any suggestions are appreciated, unless this is a bug - but release notes indicate it should be working.

Thanks,

Ed

Are you talking about in Growl's preferences or Mail's?

Inside Mail, under Preferences is a tab call "GrowlMail". It shows enabled there. Screen shot attached. Something maybe I've configured incorrectly on my end?

Then it should definitely be working.

Try this:

  1. Quit Mail.
  2. In the Growl pane in System Preferences, remove GrowlMail from the list of applications.
  3. Launch Mail.

Once Mail is fully running again, does GrowlMail re-appear in the list?

Ah - we may be onto something. GrowlMail (or Mail) does not appear at all in the list of applications within the Growl System Preferences.

I just tried quitting Mail. restarting Growl, restarting Mail, and a few other sequences, but couldn't get Mail to show in the Growl System Preference panel.

Any other ideas?

That's a symptom, not a cause.

What other Mail bundles do you have installed?

Agreed, re: symptom.

No other plugins/bundles installed for Mail.app.

Let me know if I can help debug in any other way.

I have the same problem.

GrowlMail is enabled in Mail's preferences, but doesn't show up in Growl System Preferences (and notifications obviously don't work).
I tried restarting/reinstalling without success. No other mail plugins installed.

Double-clicking the file "GrowlMail" in /Users/pierantonio/Library/Mail/Bundles/GrowlMail.mailbundle/Contents/MacOS/GrowlMail returns the following error:

MacBook:~ pierantonio$ /Users/pierantonio/Library/Mail/Bundles/GrowlMail.mailbundle/Contents/MacOS/GrowlMail ; exit;
-bash: /Users/pierantonio/Library/Mail/Bundles/GrowlMail.mailbundle/Contents/MacOS/GrowlMail: cannot execute binary file

Correct. GrowlMail is a plug-in for Mail, not an application.

All of you who are having this problem:

First, try running the Uninstall GrowlMail program on the b5 disk image, then reinstalling GrowlMail.

If that doesn't help, here's a build with extra logging. Please quit Mail, put this GrowlMail.mailbundle in your Home/Library/Mail/Bundles (replacing the one that's already there*), and relaunch Mail.

Then, when Mail finishes launching, please open the Console (/Applications/Utilities/Console.app) and search for GrowlMail, then post everything after (and including) the last “Loaded GrowlMail” message here.

*If you don't see one, you're looking in the wrong Library. You want the one inside your Home folder.

That line is from MailMe, not GrowlMail.

I forgot to mentioned that I'm also using another Mail Bundle called letterbox. The above Console messages are only for GrowlMail and the ones which occur after (not pasted above) are all related to letterbox. I've tried launching Mail without the letterbox bundle and just with GrowlMail only and I still unable to receive any Growl notifications :(
