Create hyperlinks that point to e-mail messages in Mail.app.

Overview

LinkABoo is an application that is able to create hyperlinks which point to specific e-mail messages inside Apple's "Mail" application. If you are tired of searching e-mails by sender, date, and subject (which is still tedious, even in times of "Spotlight"), then LinkABoo is for you. Using LinkABoo, you can refer to an e-mail with the ease of a single mouseclick.

Links created by LinkABoo can be used just like any "regular" hyperlinks (because that's what they are) on Mac OS X. For instance, you could create a linked Internet location file (URL clipping file) in the Finder, put it on the Dock, add the link to an iCal todo, use it from applications such as OmniOutliner, DEVONthink or Yojimbo, or even link to an-email it from the shell. Basically, you can create and utilize such links in any Mac OS X application or context where you can make use of hyperlinks.

And, of course, LinkABoo does neither modify "Mail" nor your e-mails, and it does not install any background process: it only runs when you use it to create a link, or when you click a LinkABoo link. LinkABoo does not alter the way Mail works, and thus it will have no effect on Mail's stability.

I'm amazed that none else has commented on this nifty little thing. I for one, like it a lot and use it every time I have an important email that I need to relocate for future attendance. LinkABoo does exactly what it claims to do, and it is fast! Here is how I use Linkaboo (in tandem with other apps) to make email links for iCal events. Apps used: - High Priority, $6 (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/20377) - OnMyCommand, freeware (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/9283) - LinkABoo I have set LinkABoo to be executed from within my OnMyCommand contextual menu. So, in Mail.app, I right-click on the email in question, then select LinkABoo from the context-menu, after which LinkABoo will open. After that, I open High Priority from the Finder menu bar, schedule an iCal To Do from within High Priority and finally, I drop the LinkABoo link onto HighPriority's URL field! This might sound more complicated than it really is. In fact, it's done in a snap (only a mere 5 seconds tops).

I was really looking forward to this software as it's something I could really use. However it doesn't work on my system. No matter what I highlight, I get this error message: "You selected 2 or more mails. Please select only a single mail and then launch LinkAboo again."

One of those features that should really be built into Mac OS X.
