Toggle Headers In Mail.app

I want the headers in Mail.app out of sight for the most time, but once in a while I want to see if there are other people in the To: field, or I want to see the full Subject:, because it won’t fit in the table view.

There’s a keyboard shortcut to reveal all headers, but that’s not helpful, so I wrote a simple AppleScript that toggles the default set of headers on and off. Name it Toggle Headers___ctl-h.scpt and drop it in ~/Library/Scripts/Mail Scripts, then choose “Update Scripts Menu” from within Mail.app and you’re all set for toggling.

Update: Or, rather, don’t use Ctrl-H as it sends emails to the trash if you have the table view in focus. (The filename determines the shortcut, unless that wasn’t clear.)

The above was posted to my personal weblog on March 9, 2005. My name is Peter Lindberg and I am a thirtysomething software developer and dad living in Stockholm, Sweden. Here, you’ll find posts in English and Swedish about whatever happens to interest me for the moment.
