yea.. you could also use automator maybe? not sure..jsw said:Make a smart mailbox, use rules to include all of your emails (shouldn't be too hard to figure out a few simple rules, like 'Match any of (1) From contains "a" and (2) From does not contain "a"'). Select all in that mailbox, mark 'em as read, then delete the smart mailbox.
ah you're using the old and busted Panther and not Tiger. Tiger is the only one that has smart mailboxes. see how easy everything is when you use the new stuff?Gary King said:I'm using Panther. I can't find this Smart mailbox feature; it isn't even in the Help.
yea i noticed that too... some people use their email way too much. it's almost obsessive compulsive. I get very very little mail, usually between professors, tech support for my web host, and like online purchase recipts and what have you. i maybe get one useful email a day, sometimes more, but typically one email a day is worthwhile.James Philp said:150 folders?!? Are you crazy!
Yes, but the OP wrote this 6 years ago and was using an OS 4 versions older than Lion. I doubt your input is going to help much.I can confirm this works well although under Lion Mail gives you an even easier option of setting up a smart mailbox for all unread mails then select all mark as read as above
