I'll have to try one of your methods, because mine doesn't work well!! Once you have finished reading your mail, etc, and quit Mail.app, the link gets turned into an mbox file anyway, so you need to move the mail, delete the file and re-create the link for this to work again - not ideal!

Cheers,

Forgot to write back in... The Active mail folder tip worked - thanks for that!

You've got to admit it's a pretty cruddy workaround, though!! Especially since the app has options to set this up "normally."

Broken in 10.1

The above "Active" tip broke in 10.1 becase Mail.app set Active to a mail folder, and insists in putting a new (empty) INBOX in there...

I have submitted a new tip on how to get this working under 10.1 (well, 10.1.1 now, I guess!).

I now wonder if this tip would have worked under 10.4 ?

Geoff.
