Michael Tsai, developer of SpamSieve:
It’s not every Monday that Apple releases an OS update two hours after the close of business (on the East Coast) that breaks your software.
What happened is that some third-party plug-ins were causing Mail to crash on 10.4.0, so for 10.4.1, Apple disabled all Mail plug-ins — including SpamSieve, which according to Tsai caused no known conflicts. Sort of an “If it’s not our baby, why not throw it out with the bath water?” solution.
