    shortcut in mac mail
    1. Is there a keyboard shortcut to move to any particular smart folder in mac mail? Or perhaps a plugin, that hopefully works in SL as well..

    2. Also is there a shortcut to color code a message ... i know its cmd-shift-c - but after that you need to move the mouse to choose a color. If i just want 1 color - say yellow - can a shortcut be set for that?

    Any help appreciated.

    Have a look in Mail/Preferences/Rules and you set up rules there for putting in folders and colour coding

    Thanks your reply.

    Mail preferences - color coding - yes, i'm aware of that. But every incoming email does'nt follow my preset rules hence i would like to color code them manually. But can i create a keyboard shortcut for that?

    Re smart folders - my question was to GO TO THEM - not to file any emails. I mean, i need to use the mouse and click on a smart folder to access it. Can it be done faster? Say, if a create a shortcut - type a few letters of the smart folder's name and ... i'm there..

    Out of my league but if i was going to try and sort something i would check some Standard Automator workflows to see if they could be made to work then set up a shortcut in Sys Prefs/Keyboard & Mouse/Keyboard Shortcuts to run it.
