applescript to color label messages
Authored by: deryl on Jan 17, '03 09:10:20AM

I have been searching far and wide for some means to use color
labels on my messages without having to use a rule. The rule
action for coloring messages is exactly what I want, but I want
to be able to do it manually. Does anyone know if this is possible
via AppleScript or some other means?

thanks.
-d.

applescript to color label messages

I don't think there is a way to do this currently. The rumor is that the next major update of Mail.app (might be in 10.3, dunno) will include even more Applescript functionality.. plus a "Scripts" menu a la iTunes, BBEdit, Entourage.

Maybe then.

color labeling of messages
Authored by: garbanzito on Jan 22, '03 09:41:27PM

you can do this right in the UI by opening up the color panel.. select a color and any selected messages are "labeled".. improvement (such as sort by color) is needed to match Eudora's capabilities, but this is a start.. it doesn't appear you can label via AppleScript, though
