10.7: See and manage full conversations in both message list and preview
Authored by: sig eigei on Aug 16, '11 11:14:50AM

I would give this comment 10* if I could. You have solved a serious problem in the new Lion Mail. Include Related Messages is a powerful tool for viewing messages but not for filing.

It took me a minute to follow your train of thought so I will add a few notes here.

- Create a smart mail box showing that contains messages showing ANY of the following:
Message is in Mailbox INBOX
Message is in Mailbox SENT
- Label this smart mailbox (e.g.) Conversations

- in Preferences / Viewing turn on Include Related Messages

- Drag the smart mailbox Conversations to the lower portion of the toolbar in any location you want. If you put it first then CMD-1 will be it's shortcut.

This is very useful as it allows you to truly manage the conversations including delete, move and copy (I use MsgFiler for this). Without this hint the Sent Messages just hung around. Kudos!

Thank you for the great tip! I was trying to figure out how to keep deleted messages from conversation view. This totally helped.
