Snow Leopard mail rule bug? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hi, all. Could someone verify something for me so I know I'm not going crazy?

I've written an applescript to process messages from and create a project & actions based on the mail content. The script is called from a mail rule.

However, Mail only sends Omnifocus the expected message if I apply the rule manually. If a new mail item automatically triggers the rule, Mail sends along the next most recent item in my inbox (in other words - the message that came in BEFORE the message that's actually triggering the rule).

Is this a bug or did I mess up the script? Here's the basic loop that I use in my script:

on perform_mail_action(theData)
	tell application "Mail"
		set theSelectedMessages to |SelectedMessages| of theData
		set theRule to |Rule| of theData
		repeat with a from 1 to count theSelectedMessages
			set thesubject to subject of item a of theSelectedMessages
			display dialog thesubject
		end repeat
	end tell
end perform_mail_action
Thanks for your help!
Here's the mail rule I'm using:

If all of the following conditions are met:
Subject Begins with "trigger script"

Perform the following actions:
Mark as Flagged
Run Applescript (path)
When this rule is enabled Mail finds the incoming message "trigger script" and marks it flagged. So I thinks to myself "The messages that flags and the messages that Applescript receives must be identical, right?"

But it doesn't look that way. The applescript creates a dialog box and prints some other email's subject.

This is my first attempt at applescript. I'm totally stumped. :confused:

Any ideas?
