Modifying Gmail keybinding for selecting mailboxes

Reported by CRP | May 8th, 2020 @ 10:25 PM

I am modifying Gmail.plist to allow quicker access to specific mailboxes.

I was able to add bindings to some mailboxes, for example 'Archive':

"g" = {
    "a" = ( "goToMailbox:", "ARCHIVE" );
    "m" = ( "goToMailbox:", "ALL_MESSAGES" );

However, this same code doesn't seem to work for other mailboxes. Neither 'Tagged' nor 'Deleted' have worked. I've also noticed that mailboxes work with their binding if you shorten their name (e.g. 'Flagged' to 'Flag' works) but not if you add to it (e.g. 'Flag_Tag' stops working).

Am I missing something? Thanks.

    My bad, I figured this out for myself. I should have paid more attention to the manual (https://manual.mailmate-app.com/custom_key_bindings).

    For anyone else making this mistake:

    Mailboxes don't necessarily have the same name 'under the hood' as they appear to. Their real name (UUID), which you need to use for the mappings, can be accessed simply by copying and pasting the folder into a text field.
