Message Views Coming to Mozilla in 1.3 Alpha

Monday November 4th, 2002

Seth Spitzer has posted a message to netscape.public.mozilla.mail-news about a new feature for Mail & Newsgroups known as 'message views'. The feature, coded by Scott "mscott" MacGregor, allows you to apply what are essentially saved searches to your mail folders and subscribed newsgroups. By default, several message views will be defined, including 'People I Know' (messages from people in your Personal Address Book), 'Not Junk' (which will be enabled when the spam filtering feature has landed) and the self-explanatory 'All' and 'Unread'. There's also views for each of your message labels and you'll be able to create your own views using a dialogue similar to the Search Messages UI. For more details, read the relevant thread in netscape.public.mozilla.mail-news or take a look at the bug, which includes a couple of pretty screenshots.

I recall somebody (Blake?) saying in a thread about Thunderbird/Minotaur in the Phoenix forums that MozMail wasn't going anywhere. This gives the lie to that dis . As to that criticism of the UI, isn't it really just a matter of which mail client somebody got used to way back when? I cannot comprehend the fanaticism for Mulberry's UI, just as some cannot understand my fondness of Mahogany's. And I still think that Ami 1.0 is the best word processor. But, this is why it is so great that these projects are open -- somebody can take the code and do it the way they think right!
