In line with my previous question in pursuit of a better Mail.app experience, I'm trying to disable Mail's reply and send animations. The terminal commands cited elsewhere on the web, however, aren't doing anything:

  • Send animations:defaults write com.apple.Mail DisableSendAnimations -bool true
  • Reply animations: defaults write com.apple.Mail DisableReplyAnimations -bool true

I've tried replacing true with YES and running the commands in sudo. Disabling animations in the Accessibility system preferences pane also didn't work—but it did remove a few other animations that I happened to like.

Is Apple simply enforcing their design decisions in Mojave, or something..? Open to ideas!
