    Hello all

    I was hoping someone around here might have an answer to my particular question...

    For the purposes of maintaining regular contact with a large group of contacts in your address book:

    How could you create a smart mailbox in the Mail App (Lion) which contained that last unique sent/received email from each individual contact?

    So ideally just the last email per contact. For my purposes I would then sort by date and find the contacts I havent emailed in a while and re-initiate conversation.

    I also thought that perhaps it would be possible through Automator? (I am not very familiar with how to use this app though..) Or a third party app?

    I am a freelancer so keeping in contact with lots of people is part of earning my keep - but its not my central job - anything to make this easier would be fantastic! :D

    Any ideas/solutions are very appreciated!
