Send Mail message (with link) to OF Inbox Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

Thought I'd share this applescript that sends the current selected message in Mail to the Inbox. It includes the context of "Mail" and note with a link back to the message.

Be sure you edit the script to change the context to match yours. Also, you must create the context in OF before the script will function.

Here's what I've found as a best practice in using this:

1. Setup a Mail Act-On Rule to run the script and (optionally) move the message to an "actionable" folder.

2. OF will now have an new inbox task with a name based on the subject, sender, and 1 line summary of the email. In the notes field will be the link back to the Mail message.

3. To easily switch directly to that message, Select All in the note field of the task and press your QuickSilver shortcut to "Command Window with Selection". The default action should be "Open URL". Press return and your Mail message opens in a new window.
