10.4: Make Address Book Smart Groups auto-complete in Mail
Authored by: chjabu on Jun 29, '05 10:34:03AM

This solves an other problem I was having with Mail. I can't get Smart Mailboxes to recognize Smart Groups properly. I can create the Smart Mailbox but it doesn't update.

I used this hint to create an "interim" Group in Address book and used that in my Smart Mailbox and now it works like I wanted.

10.4: Make Address Book Smart Groups auto-complete in Mail

This didn't work for me and I'm wondering if there is a maximum number of contacts that can be in a smart group linked to smart mailbox. For example, I can create a smart group with all the contacts from a certain domain or a certain company and then link a smart mailbox to members of that group and it works fine. But if I create a smart group that includes all the contacts in my address book, the smart mailbox won't filter.

Well, I think I figured it out. As soon as my smart group exceeds 500 contacts, the smart mailbox won't filter.
