Is there a way to attach or link to an email in Mail?
 
I've been using Mailtags and a script to go back to the email.

From with in Mail I use the Copy Message URL command that is added to the Edit Menu after installing MailTags. Then I use the following script within OO to bring the email back:

tell application "OmniOutliner Professional"
tell front document
set theRow to first selected row
set theNote to the note of theRow
set messageURL to first paragraph of theNote
open location messageURL
end tell
end tell
 
10.5 has also added the ability to link Mail message OS wide by dragging an email to another app.

Is there any way to copy the message into OO by dragging?
 
To copy the entire message:

1. Click on email message in mailbox list to highlight it.
2. Command-C to copy it
3. Go to OO and have the insertion point where you want the email
4. Command-V to paste it.

This will insert the entire email in OO. It will have the entire header plus the entire message. It will be part of the document.

To insert a link to the email (using OS X 10.5):

1. Click on email message in mailbox list and drag.
2. Drag over to OO and release on the insertion point or data box

This will place a link to the email. There will be a small arrow at the right edge of the link. Clicking on the arrow will open the email message. Or if the link is highlighted, hitting the spacebar will also open it.

I'm using Mailtags, but can't get this to work.
I copy the message url to the OO document.
But when I run this script, nothing happens.
I've altered the first line because I'm not using Pro.
I'm on Tiger 10.4.11
Any ideas?
 
This issue has been resolved for me with the latest beta release of OO.
Thanks Omni!
