Action Menu

The action menu is located next to the search field in the MsgFiler 4 window. It provides quick access to commonly used settings and reveals additional filing options.

MsgFiler Settings

These options toggle frequently used settings in MsgFiler 4:

  • Keep MsgFiler open after filing: Enable this when filing dozens or hundreds of emails in a single session.

  • Pressing Enter always performs default action: Enable this to perform the default filing action when pressing Enter from the search field. If disabled, pressing Enter will move focus to the Mailboxes table.

  • Focus on search on activation: Enable this to always return to the search field when returning back to MsgFiler 4.

  • Restrict search to selected accounts: Only show mailboxes that belong to the currently selection Mail account. Useful when you have mailboxes with the same name across multiple mail accounts.

  • Ignore mailbox path when matching: MsgFiler 4 will ignore the mailbox path and only search on the mailbox name.

  • Align MsgFiler window to Mail: When activated, MsgFiler 4 will attach its main window to the right-hand side of the frontmost Mail window.
