    • State changed from “new” to “closed”

    All Messages shows all messages in all accounts except those located in mailboxes assigned for deleted messages or junk.

    A message can contain multiple body parts using a format known as MIME. This is in wide-spread use and is used for:

    • including attachments/images
    • creating secure S/MIME or OpenPGP messages
    • creating rich format emails (HTML)
    • and more

    MailMate provides direct access to these body parts. Most of the time you don't need this, but there are special cases where it's useful. For example, it can be used to create a smart mailbox showing all the image body parts of other emails.

    And is it possible do delete only a body part, like just the images from selected emails?

    @Marcel: Sorry, that's still an item on the todo.
