This is such a simple feature it really needs no explanation, but don’t let it’s simplicity fool you… it’s ridiculously useful.
(This can be made full screen and HD)
How it works
Whenever you compose an email, or reply to one, two little numbers appear in the top right of your message.
The first is how many previous conversations you’ve had, and the second is how many task’s you have for that person (or people).
And if you click the numbers? A popup appears so you can browse those conversations and tasks in depth, without leaving the reply you’re writing.
Turning it on
First, make sure you’re at least on 188.8.131.52.
Then just open your Preferences, and enable ‘Previous Emails’ for Compose/Reply Recipients.
When should you use it?
- If someone has emailed you and you cannot quite remember them, then you can quickly see all your history together
- If you need to retrieve a particular piece of information from an earlier discussion, you can find it and copy & paste it into this reply.
- If you’d forgotten a task you had to do, it’s a gentle reminder to do it (just another way to make sure no tasks get left behind).
Also: This is part of the 184.108.40.206 release, which is covered in more detail in the last blog post.
