2019-03-17 To Jack, regarding Postbox

Hi Jack

Thanks for responding to my conundrum about Postbox and email message URLs.

That is a helpful tip, because I hadn’t discovered the ability to grab the message link from a contextual menu.

It gets me close - but not quite there. Of course, this will work with some modifications to the way I do things.

What I can do at the moment is simply have an email highlighted/in the viewport of Mail.app. I can then go to any other application and by typing elink Textexpander will trigger and replace that with the message ID URL. I don’t have to manually copy the link first.

This makes me wonder if I can configure Keyboard Maestro to somehow interact with Postbox to copy its message ID URL and perform the text replacement instead of TextExpander.

Experimentation may be required.
