Find misfiled messages in Mail.app Apps
This hint's for you if, like me, you sometimes lose an e-mail in Mail.app when you sort a whole bunch of them into mailboxes one by one ... for example, you want to move the mail into a specific mailbox via drag and drop, but miss it and can't see which one you might have accidentally dropped it in.

Here's an easy way to find out where it went. Just control-click over any mail message, and the contextual menu pop-up will reveal the last mailbox into which you filed something -- you'll see a Move to "some mailbox" again entry. The "some mailbox" name is where you filed the missing piece of mail. Simple, I know, but it's saved me a lot of time searching for mis-filed messages.

Find misfiled messages in Mail.app

I was about to say that as well... But then I realised that someone could have done a few other tasks (started typing another message, deleted one, etc.) before they realise their previous mistake.
