Open Mailbox via Message-ID
Opens Mail to a specific message in a Mailbox. Swipe right or tap back to view the Mailbox.
Open Message in Mailbox
Navigates to a mailbox in iOS Mail given the Message-ID of a message in that mailbox.
You can retrieve the Message-ID in one of two ways:
- On iPadOS, drag a Mail message to a Text action in Shortcuts.
- View the raw source of an email in an email client capable of displaying the raw source (iOS Mail does not have this feature).
Search for “Message-ID:” and select the text on that line.
Replace the text below with the Message-ID. Running the shortcut will open iOS Mail to that Mail message. Swipe or go back to be in the mailbox.
Alternatively, you can run this shortcut with the Message-ID as the parameter to the shortcut. This way, you can have a parent shortcut that has a Dictionary and a Choose from List action that you can use to open multiple mailboxes from a single shortcut.
