    Having switched recently from Entourage to Mac mail, there is one thing that i am missing and would like some help.

    I have a large inbox and normally find mail by clicking on the "From" column header, to sort the by the names of people sending me mails. Using entourage I would then press "d" on the keyboard to take me the first name begining with d.

    However in Mail when I press d, it takes me to the first email in which the subject line starts with a d. How do I get it to take me to the first name begining with d ?

    Hope that makes sense.

    I'm looking for the same answer. Been Googling it for a while this morning. Quite frustrating. Anyone have any ideas?

    not honestly sure you can. I've tried that too over the years but never figured it out.

    weird.... I just checked my mail and when I click on From then click on X, it would take me to the first X on the email. Same thing if type E, it would take me to the first E.

    Are we talking about the same thing?

    I just checked, if I have nothing sorted, ie just the order the mails arrive, and I press say d it will take me to the first d that appears in either the name column or the subject one.

    I would just like it to ignore the subject column.

    Any ideas ?
