Support for email clients other than
I've always loved the use of the Clip-O-Tron 3000 and I still prefer it over the new Mail Drop feature for processing my email into tasks. The key reason I like it so much is the fact that it offers a link to the original email message, rather than just the text from the email as the Mail Drop system does.
I'm now using a different email application ([URL=""]MailMate[/URL]) and I'm really missing the Clip-O-Tron 3000.
I'm wondering; is there is any [I]other[/I] way of getting the "Show Original" link in an OmniFocus task?

Most of Clip-o-Tron's work is accomplished via AppleScript, so it's theoretically maybe possible to write a similar tool for other email clients that have good AppleScript support.

That's pretty much what I thought, but a "theoretically maybe possible" scenario is a little sketchy for me to get my hopes up.

[B]So[/B] happy now!!

Mailplane and Postbox have OF support as well, although I'm not sure if it works exactly the same as
