Chapter 15. Mail > View message threads

View message threads

A group of related messages and replies are called message threads. If you reply to an email whose subject field is labeled “Dogfood,” the default subject field is labeled “Re: Dogfood.” Mail identifies messages that have identical subject fields (and sometimes related subject matter) as being in the same thread and highlights all of the messages in a thread when any related message is selected, as shown on page 406. You can turn off this highlighting or change the highlight color in preferences (see page 447).

To group all messages in threads together, from the View menu choose “Organize by Thread.” All related messages are now grouped together and highlighted in the message list, as shown below. This is a convenient and easy way to find all the correspondence related to a particular subject.
