Smart Mailboxes in Mail

You can also create Smart Mailboxes that will hold all the email messages that meet certain search criteria. If you are familiar with the Rules (filters) you can create in Mail, as explained on page 87, you'll notice there are a couple of differences between Rules and Smart Mailboxes.

  • A Rule is an action that is applied to a message, such as filtering certain email into a certain folder. The original email is sorted into the folder.

  • A Smart Mailbox contains messages that match search criteria. No action is taken on the messages.

  • A Smart Mailbox does not contain the original message, thus the same message can be “stored' in a number of Smart Mailboxes.

  • A Smart Mailbox automatically updates itself as messages come in or are deleted.

  • A Smart Mailbox applies the search rules to mail that is already in your box, not just on future incoming mail.
