10.7: In Mail show messages you've sent in conversation view Apps
The new version of Mail in Lion has a nice Conversation View, which shows messages in thread form (like Gmail). I like this view, but the main problem that I had with it was that, to see messages that you've sent in that conversation, you have to move to Sent Mail.

Luckily, Mail lets us show messages we've sent as well. Here's how to enable that:

Go to Mail » Preferences » Viewing. Under View Conversations, check the Include related messages box. Conversation view is now complete.

I also like how it gives your sent messages a light grey background to differentiate them from the recepient's.

I think you get a similar effect if you select both Inbox and Sent messages (using the Command key).

You can achieve the same thing for an individual message by clicking ‘Show Related Messages’ on the toolbar.

Does checking a box in a Preferences dialog *really* qualify as being a "hint" these days? Surely the first thing you ought to do when something doesn't work quite the way you want it to in any app is check out the preferences...

You can also select Multiple Mailboxes and get a similar view when clicking on an email.
Example Select the inbox and sent (for all mailbox accounts), or a individual you inbox and it's individual sent mailbox.
