I can't speak for others, but I have invested in Mail Act On and have used their rules to use a keyboard shortcut to trigger applescripts in mail.
- ctrl-A creates an inbox action with a link back to the original mail.
- ctrl-W triggers Sven Fechner's (SimplicityBliss) script to add the last sent mail to omnifocus prefixed with 'Waiting For'. The script is here: https://gist.github.com/simplicitybliss/4750844
The last one is a godsend to me (thanks Sven) - although I have growl, it hung untill I set the growl setting to false but then works like a dream (I didn't want the notification anyway). Make sure that you save the script in the com.apple.mail folder otherwise it won't be accessible to MailActOn.
