RelatedMail is a plugin for Apple Mail that shows messages related to the currently viewed message. The RelatedMessages plugin builds an index, similar to Spotlight, of all your mail files, and uses that index to find messages related to the currently viewed message. The plugin determines relevance by looking at both the headers and the contents of the message. A given item in the related messages list shows the sender, date, subject, and first sentence or two from the message. Above the item is a score indicator - the longer the bar the more relevant the message. Various styles are applied to the text to indicate a particular more...

What's New

Version 0.8.4:
  • Fix a possible issue where cached sender information was out of sync with the database.
  • The plist option to turn off caching has been removed. It is now always on. This has allowed some further optimizations for a small performance increase in displaying related messages.

Not working in Snow Leopard. I'd love to see an update and have this functionality restored to Mail!

There is an updated version for Snow Leopard on his website. It's working for me in 10.6.7. Pleased to be able to use this great plugin again.

I've just started using this with the 0.8.4 version. All I can say, after a few hours, is "Wow." Very nicely implemented and designed.

If there are annoyances or flaws I haven't noticed them yet. This is really a great organizational tool.

I love this app, but would very much like to have the ability to situate the column on the left-side so that I could keep MailTags on the right-side where I am used to having matters.

This is an excellent addition to mail! I have thousands of emails and this really helps with finding emails related to the current topic. Cuts down on my use of Find.

Great idea! Great start! Great plug-in!

Would like to donate to support the development!

Few suggestions:

- support of MailTags (windows interfere at the moment)

- support of SpamSieve (and other spam filters) to sort out spam/junk messages (index seems to include them at the moment; at least if you don't use the build-in spam filter)

- option to exclude emails in the trash (and maybe from other specific folders)

- maybe support of letterbox/wide mail

However, it is a really helpful plug-in already!

Just installed and very impressed. Looking forward to the GUI to control how it works a few odd bits are showing up in the index.

Great start and looking forward to future versions

Easy to install, easy to use (almost nothing to do), and really usefull ! It's like Spotlight, but better, that you can access simply by clicking mails, and the rest is done automatically.

Some GUI enhancements would be great, and the manual activation should be automatic in a near future, I hope ! :)

So... Five stars, without doubts !
