10.6: Move messages to a target folder via keyboard shortcut
Authored by: mdmac on Dec 01, '09 11:19:32AM
I'm having trouble with this and I'm guessing it's in my interpretation of "change fastmail to the name of your account." I attempted to get this to work by replacing target_account with the "Description" of one of my accounts found in Mail>Prefs>Accounts . But it doesn't work. Also tried changing target_mailbox to "Mailboxes/Archived Messages" to no avail...

I have many email accounts and I don't know why this script would care about the account name if all I'm doing is moving selected message(s) (from whatever account) into an "Archived Messages" folder, "On My Mac" in Mail.

10.6: Move messages to a target folder via keyboard shortcut

As robg said, delete the "of account target_account" bit from the end of the "move the theMessage…" line.

Also, if you mailbox is in the top level, don't add "Mailboxes" in "Mailboxes/Archived Messages". I have a top level mailbox called "Archive" so I simply entered "Archive" in the script. But if "Mailboxes" is a folder you created then don't change that line.
