how to disable mail windows animations in Sierra

Does anyone know how to disable the crazy fly out animations for Send and Receive in Apple Mail ?


In earlier versions there was a package available in GitHub that did the trick but that has not been updated and I guess it won't be (the author gives instructions for doing it yourself with XCODE - more than I feel comfortable doing).


There must be some simple way or app that will tweak this... this is driving me back to Outlook!!!

Yes, here is how you do it.


sudo defaults write DisableSendAnimations -bool true

sudo defaults write DisableReplyAnimations -bool true


I agree that all this idiotic Apple obsession with animating everything is cancer.  I just want to see what I asked for as fast as possible.  These animations are useless, distracting and make the Mac look like a cutesy toy rather than a real computer.  Apple's UI team is turning the Mac into the toy that Windows users said it was.


It's shameful.


I try to turn off every animation I can everywhere.  I just want a FAST UI without glaring white and hideous painful blue colors.


Give me back the UI from Snow Leopard without all this animated garbage.


Good luck.
