Desire a link to Mailbox Folders

Reported by Charles Lamprey | October 15th, 2018 @ 09:54 PM

I appreciate the ability to copy the URI of a message by mouse-selecting "Command -> Mailmate -> Copy Links to Messages" while one or more messages are selected, as it allows me to jump directly to that message from my workflow software.

I would appreciate the capability to "Copy Link to Mailbox Folder" for a similar capability that would 'jump' me to the contents of that folder in Mailmate.

    There's not quite this feature yet, but you can create such a link by selecting a mailbox and then use “Edit > Copy” to puts its unique identity on the pasteboard.

    A link like this can then be used to open the mailbox:


    I think this only works in the latest test releases: Hold down ⌥ when clicking “Check Now” in the Software Update preferences pane.

    Hmmmph. Doesn't work for me, even after latest releases.

    Neither of these seem to work; they just open MailMate but don't select the requested Mailbox:



    Also, Edit -> Copy provides an imap: link, not a mlmt: one.

    Try copy/pasting exactly what I wrote. You can also try it using this Terminal command:

    open "mlmt:select?mailbox=ARCHIVE"

    The imap: link is correct. For example:

    open "mlmt:select?mailbox=imap://user@example.com/INBOX"
