Can anyone explain what the current and/or planned support for mailtags is?
I can't speak to Omni's future plans, but I can say a bit about what is currently there.
Among many other things, MailTags allows you to open messages using special "message://…" URLs. I plan to post an update to my Mail link scripts later tonight that will create actions in Mail with these URLs embedded.
If you have MailTags installed, then even without my scripts you can:
- select a message in Mail
- choose Edit -> Copy Message URL
- create an action in OmniFocus
- paste the message URL into the note.
Now you can click that URL to open the associated message.
My updated scripts will just automate those steps.
