All Mail converstions with the same subject appear with a new message in my In Box eventhough many of those emails with the same subject have been moved to another Mail Box.  For example, I use Salesforce.  Thoughout the day I will receive emails with the subject "A lead has been assigned to you".  After I have delt with these leads I click on the trash can and delete these messages.  Now after installing Mountain Lion with Apple Mail 6.0, in the Preview screen I see the emails that are in my In Box plus all other email with the same subject.  In this case there are sever hundred.


How do I get my In Box preview to just show the current messages and not messages in other folders with the same subject line?

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion, MacBook Air, IPad v1, Apple TV v2

    The behavious seems to have changed between Lion and Mountian Lion; the latter searches *all* folders.  However, you can turn the entire feature off by unchecking:


    Preferences > Viewing > View Conversations > Include Related Messages


    Hope that helps.

    I was really happy with this feature when I first upgrade.. until I realize that it includes messages moved to other folders and TRAHSED MESSAGES????? that is the onet that makes this feature useless to me. Come on Apple, you are normally so logical with these things, but inclduing messages from the Trash is stupid.


    Thanks for showing how to turn this feature off.
