I used the Unsubscribe plugin for, but it is now a part of TrustedID (, so now I can't use it anymore and want to remove it.

When I want to uninstall the plugin from inside the preferences, nothing happens when I hit the button Remove Unsubscribe Plugin. There's nothing in /Users/MyUserName/Library/Mail/Bundles that looks like the Unsubscribe plugin.

UnsubMailPluginMail App for OS X is a leftover from a free program which later switched to become a user pay software. The program vanished but the plugin stayed to pop up and annoy you.

To remove it:

  1. Open your Finder window.
  2. Proceed to the Go menu.
  3. Then down to Go to Folder....
  4. Then in the window delete existing wording and type in /Library/Mail/.

When the folder opens, locate the plugin and move it to Trash.

Reformatting this as a series of discreet steps (1, 2, 3...) would make it easier to read. – gosmond Mar 20 '13 at 3:02

It's not in your Home folder. Look in the Library folder on the main level of your hard drive. ([Macintosh HD/Library/Mail/Bundles] Replace "Macintosh HD" with the name of your hard drive.)

No, the folder in the main Library is empty. – Purr Aug 4 '12 at 4:38
