New location for application AppleScripts in 10.8 System 10.8
I discovered while adding some new Mail rules that existing rules which ran an AppleScript seemed to be missing the scripts I had designated, even though they were still in my Scripts folder (~/Library/Scripts). Upon clicking the "Open in Finder" option in the drop-down menu for choosing an existing AppleScript, it took me to a new file path: ~/Library/Application Scripts/com.apple.mail.

You just need to copy or move the scripts to the new folder. Mail seems smart enough to remember the earlier choice and update the rules by moving the scripts to the new folders.

[kirkmc adds: This probably has something to do with sandboxing. The only other application I use AppleScripts for is iTunes, and their location hasn't changed. Can anyone post in the comments if they see other folders in the Application Scripts folder?]

Moved my e-mail script which says the name of the sender provided it's either in my contact list or previous recipient list to the correct folder. Despite it working flawlessly before Mountain Lion it now only works sporadically if at all. If anyone has experienced this problem and has a solution, please let me know.

I would also like to get my SpeakMailSender script to work. :-( I'll post here if finding a solution.

OK, I have something that seems to work so far. Replied to the original SpeakMailSender script hint.

Unfortunately this still does not work for me.

@Kirk I thought I mentioned my suspicion that this was due to Sandboxing when I submitted this, but yeah pretty sure this is the culprit. Would have been nice for Apple to warn the user on first launch.

An empty ~/Library/Application Scripts/com.apple.mail exists in my account, but the scripts menu still shows the scripts in ~/Library/Scripts/Applications/Mail, and they run too. Could this be limited to rule scripts?

I've only noticed this being enforced for Mail rule scripts so far. When I submitted, it was specific to Mail but Kirk changed it to be more generic upon publication. Other scripts I use from the Scripts menu work fine still.
