10.5: Jump directly to a message in Mail via keyboard Apps
In Mail 3.0, in your current mailbox view, you can jump to any message by typing the first letters of the from name or the subject line. This also works for RSS feeds, notes, and to do items.

[robg adds: Previously in Mail, the only way to navigate the inbox view via the keyboard was via the up and down arrow keys.]

Cool! that means there's one less Mail plugin that I'll need to install...

MailTypeSelect brings this functionality to Tiger's Mail app:

I'm disappointed. I would have expected that "Re:", "Fwd:", etc would be ignored - just like iTunes ignores "The" when selecting artists.

Doesn't work, when focus is on the mailboxes pane. Used to, in Mail 2.0 / 10.4. I'm using the Mail Type Select plugin...

Ah. Well, Ken Ferry, author of Mail Type Select, advised *disabling* it - and all is well now. Turns out this functionality is *part of* Mail 3.1 in Leopard.

Gah, is there any way to turn this "feature" off? It severely messes with my Mail-ActOn install.

Hi,

do you know if there is some way to change which metadata you jump to, for instance changing from "subject" to "from"? Any tips?
