How do I activate Apple Mail plugins in macOS Mojave & Catalina?

Since macOS Mojave (10.14), it is now required to activate Apple Mail plugins before using them. To start using your inbox with Mailbutler, you’ll need to first enable Mailbutler.mailbundle manually through your Apple Mail Preferences and restart Mail.

Note: This tutorial shows how to activate Mailbutler on Mojave and Catalina, but the steps are the same for every Apple Mail plugin.

Be sure that Mailbutler is installed first. If you don’t have any plug-ins installed, the Manage Plug-ins button might not appear. Visit this article if the button is still missing.
