I’ve noticed some odd behavior with Apple Mail since I upgraded to Big Sur, too. There has been some work on it and I don’t think it’s for the better. Bill Prothero > On Feb 24, 2021, at 2:22 PM, Rick Harrison via use-livecode > wrote: > > Thanks for the discussion link. More confirmation

Thanks for the discussion link. More confirmation it is a bug in Catalina macOS Mail. Unfortunately, their work around for forwarding isn’t a fix. One would have hoped that Apple would have fixed it in the last 8 months, but they haven’t. :-( Thanks, Rick > On Feb 24, 2021, at 2:08 PM, J.

Hi Paul, Thanks for the script. I’m not an AppleScript Expert either. I’ve dabbled with it from time to time and usually end up hating the experience. Sometimes using the “Record” feature of AppleScript can give one a good idea of what to do. I would probably eliminate a repeat or two. I

I know this is moving away from LC, but you can use a simple AppleScript to to do this, then trigger the AppleScript from Mail rules, or run as a standalone app, or you could trigger the AppleScript from LC if that’s what you need. I’m no AppleScript expert, I just did a bit of searching and

Hi again, I had one more idea as a work around. My account is a gmail account. Is there anyway I could use one of their filters at that level to do the auto-respond but somehow change the subject line back to what it should be? Any gmail experts here that might know the answer? Thanks, Rick

Hi Rick, i mixed the version numbers. I tested with 15.3 which is Catalina. There it shows also the behaviour. In Mojave the subjects is not changed and keeps the original value. Please excuse the confusion. - Matthias Rebbe Life Is Too Short For Boring Code > Am 24.02.2021 um 16:50 schrieb

Hi Matthias, That confirms this is bug with macOS Mojave and most probably wasn’t fixed in Catalina either! Now the question becomes one of does the bug still exist in macOS Big Sur? In addition, can anyone come up with a workaround that produces the correct result? Thanks! Rick > On Feb

Okay, understood. ;) I've tried here in a VM with macOS 14.3 now. I created a rule that forwards an email if the subject is DAVID. I can replicate it so far, but in my case the subject changed from DAVID to Fwd: baa1 I checked also the raw email. There's the same for the subject. Regards,

Hi Matthias, The problem is not with the script because I can reproduce the problem without using it at all. Just test the Rules part of Mac Mail in Catalina, to see if an auto reply generates Hexadecimal numbers in the Subject line. Thanks, Rick > On Feb 24, 2021, at 7:21 AM, matthias rebbe
