MaxBulk Mailer recipient lists no longer sorted alphabetically


All of a sudden, right after updating your system to macOS High Sierra you probably found out that all the recipient lists throughout the software were no longer sorted alphabetically. Well, I believe we were the first to find out and it took more than two weeks to actually receive the first complaints from MaxBulk Mailer users. We even received screenshots like this:

High Sierra file sorting issue

So what happened? We believe it all has to do with the new APFS hard disk format that comes with the macOS 10.13 High Sierra operating system. It is a format exclusively used on SSD drives, for now, maybe that explains why we received so few complaints.

That new APFS format no longer returns folder item lists automatically sorted alphabetically but somehow shuffled or may be ordered by date, not sure. Anyway, as said above, we suffered the problem before anyone else and we fixed it right away.

To fix the problem the file list has to be sorted by code. That means we have to process that list before showing it to you. In other words, we need to sort it alphabetically as it was done before. We modified MaxBulk Mailer to do that.

You will find below a stable beta version of MaxBulk Mailer for you to try:

MaxBulk Mailer 8.6.2 beta3 for macOS

Please try this new version and share your impressions below. Are lists now sorted properly?
