My wish for OS X Mail


Here’s a wish for Apple’s Mail. When I’m creating a rule that depends on an address, Mail should live-search my Contacts as I type in this field. Instead it does nothing. If I’m working with an unfamiliar address, I must abandon the rule creation, find the address, copy it and then start over.

It’s not “your children have died in a fire,” but still irksome.

    If you have a message selected before you go into preferences to add the rule, it will auto populate the fields.

    Perhaps your workflow is different. I usually see the need for a rule after receiving a message with which is like a rule to apply.

Got something to say? Go for it!
