Easily creating nested folders in Mail
Authored by: rbrough on Aug 09, '05 02:17:18PM

Thanks for the hint - I have been doing this the hard way...

Does anyone know if there is a way to make a "top" folder that will include all the mail from the subfolders, in the way that the Inbox shows the content of all the individual inboxes (I have my .mac, my gmail, and a work-related one!)

In other words, if I have a "Family" folder, which contains "Helen" and "Spud" subfolders (from the above reply), I could see all of Helen & Spud's email by clicking on Family, or only Helens by clicking Helen.

You could use smart folders, or simply Apple click on the folders you want to view together. When you select multiple folders, they are displayed together, as noted in a recent hint.

This way, you can look at .Mac+Gmail, or Gmail+Other or all three, without creating various sets of smart folders. You can also select both Inbox and Sent, and see the message flow in both ways (that was the point of the earlier hint).
