[u]This work around isn’t working for at least some users (see comments below). There are questions about the source of the problem and who’s affected. Will follow up on this issue and post an update. So caveat emptor and stay tuned. [u]

Seasons, and operating system versions, come and go like cars on a busy street, yet AppleScript, the fairer platform’s natural scripting language, has been a Mac staple since 1993. Whether you’re using iTunes or running an OS X file server, it’s the digital duct tape that keeps things running smoothly.

For the last few months, I’ve been happily testing Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. Happy with a few small caveats, the biggest being that Andreas Mann’s Mail Scripts weren’t compatible. Now, Mail Scripts 2.10.3 has arrived alleviating the pain of separation while reinserting some whiz bang back into my workflow.

Features and fixes:

• Schedule Delivery: fix issue where the script would launch into its UI rather than sending the message at the scheduled time
• Archive Messages: update the included Perl modules and re-compile them as universal binaries in order for the script to run when Rosetta is not available (e.g., MacOS X 10.7 “Lion”)
• Update all website references to go to the new website URL

    I am unable to get the Mail Scheduler script to work on Lion on my new Mac Air. The developer’s web site has the following warning, so I’m not sure why you are saying that it is compatible with Lion.

    ” Mail Scripts have not been fully tested for MacOS X 10.7 (Lion) — I will try to update the scripts to be compatible as soon as possible”

    He previously said this work around was compatible. I tested it at the time and it seemed to work. Whether something’s changed or some portion of users/configuration aren’t compatible, I don’t know. Will advise.
