Liz Deegan succeeded Michael Prain as editor in September 2006. Prain, who was editor of the newspaper for almost a decade, was appointed managing editor, digital media, of Queensland Newspapers. As she prepared to take over as editor, Deegan said: "I'm excited by the challenge of editing the biggest -selling newspaper in Australia's fastest growing state and ensuring its circulation keeps pace with the rapid growth of Queensland."[3]

The Sunday Mail was published in a new design, featuring a new masthead, updated typography and somewhat different supplements on 15 July 2007.[5]

In June 2013, The Sunday Mail announced that Peter Gleeson would take over the role of editor from Scott Thompson.[6] As of 2013 The Sunday Mail costs A$2.50.
