Mail Type Select 2.5 reviewDownload
Mail Type Select, n?e Type Ahead Find, brings the same kind of keyboard navigation to Mail.
Mail Type Select, n?e Type Ahead Find, brings the same kind of keyboard navigation to Mail.app's message list that the Finder has in its list view (or icon view, or column view really). If you type a short sequence of characters into the table of messages, a message matching your typing will be selected. It's much faster than using the mouse or arrow keys, and becomes completely second nature after a little bit of use.
When the list of messages has focus,
* Typing a few characters selects a matching message.
* up and down and select next and previous match.
* ESC and Command. cancel.
Click in the message list (i.e. top pane in the viewer window) and type a few characters to try it out.
Note: Upgrading from Mac OS X 10.4 to Mac OS X 10.4.1 will disable this and all other Mail plugins. To reenable Mail Type Select, follow the directions in the ReadMe.
Handles characters that take more than one key press to type (e.g. ? on a US keyboard).
Better scrolling behavior when selecting matches.
Changed next/previous match keys to down / up.
Mail.app on Mac OS X 10.3 or later.
