I’m a Thunderbird fan. Already at Linux, Windows and since 2 years on my Apples.
So after discovering your fine app (by means of the Scrivener forum) I was very disappointed that the F1 key doesn’t work in Thunderbird as mail is one of my daily sources of information. The ‘print>pdf’ trick is an option but at the cost of quite some keystrokes and bigger files than necessary.
But… I dicovered a better way: Cmd-S (save as file)-Enter. This creates a .eml file (including attachments) at the desktop. Afterwards I select these .eml file(s), drop them into EF and then into trash.
Works like a charm and I’m totally happy now.
Works even better than F1 in Mail for that creates a folder + message in EF.
The ‘print>pdf’ method is still useful for archiving ‘official’ mail as receipts or tenders and stuff.
One question though: do you think it possible to automate the sequence ‘Cmd-S-Enter > directly into EF’ ? Maybe with AppleScript… I’m not a programmer so I totally wouldn’t know.
