Double-click to search: unexpected behavior

Reported by Sam T | December 1st, 2016 @ 05:41 AM

Whenever I double-click on a message to search for similar messages, Mailmate always jumps to a specific mailbox. This is not expected behavior, as I always have to click back to the mailbox I was in when I initiated the search. For example, in my "Inbox" mailbox, I double-click on "LinkedIn" in the "From" column to search for similar messages from LinkedIn. But Mailmate jumps into a different mailbox, mailbox "X", when it applies the search. Now I have to click back into "Inbox" to get to the results I want. The only time this isn't an issue is when I'm already in mailbox "X", which isn't often.

I have MailMate installed on another computer and the functionality works as expected there. Wondering if I could have some corrupt preferences, or is there perhaps some deeper setting that I'm missing?

    • State changed from “new” to “resolved”

    The setting can be found in the popup menu of the search field. Look for “Default Mailbox ▸ Current Mailbox”. You probably found this on the other machine. Also note that holding down ⌥ reverses the behavior in most search contexts, e.g., when clicking on a message header.

    Let me know if this does not help.

    Indeed, I must have changed it at some point and then forgotten all about it. Thanks for the tip, and for making this excellent app!
