Showing thread of found message

Reported by Michael A Osborne | July 5th, 2014 @ 06:09 PM

Dear Benny

I have a common objective: to find a message based on some search criteria, and then to reveal all other messages in its thread. I used to be able to do this by:

  1. using searchAllMessages;
  2. selecting the appropriate message;
  3. using showThread, which returns the subset of the thread meeting the search criteria;
  4. Right clicking on the 'Custom Search' item in the header, and removing it.

Unfortunately, in a Mailmate version subsequent to around v4158, step 4 seems to have broken. I can no longer right click on the 'Custom Search' item as of v4374.

  • If this is a bug, might it be fixed?
  • Is there another way of achieving my objective?
  • Could step 4 be achieved using the keyboard alone?

As always, enormous thanks for putting together such an excellent product: your time is much appreciated.

    It's a bug and I wasn't aware of it. I'm not even sure how it happened, but I must have accidentally removed the code handling this. A new test version is available in a few minutes.

    With respect to step 4 then the answer is no. You can hold down ⌥ when clicking on the item to remove it, but it still requires the mouse. (There might at some point be a different way to do steps 3+4 via the keyboard.)

    Fantastic: many thanks Benny! Release 4378 works like a charm, and thanks also for the tip about holding down ⌥ while clicking. Again, I'm amazed at your speedy and extraordinarily helpful response!
