    Default Assign numeric shortcuts in 6?

    I can't do S + 1 to get the saved search unread shown after updating to 6.
    Is there Saved Search Shortcuts on 6?

    When I go to the Preferences > Shortcuts I see the "Zimbra Keyboard Shortcuts". Where's the Mail Folder, Saved Serach and Tag Shortcuts shortcuts?
    (I can see them in the hosted demo, but not in my install.)

    When you type S you should get the following menu:


    'S' > type first letter or more to continue filtering > 'enter' (no need to tab down to 'ok'.)

    'T' to tag something.

    So yes it's 3 keystrokes now, but if you have 10+ tags/searches it's a much better system. Plus you don't have to remember key mappings. (Same method is used for moves 'm' - folder views 'v' - and tag views 'vv'.)

    For a bit I renamed my tags/searches like '1Name' because I kept doing the old method subconsciously. (Unlike searches, tags have a minor quirk that after rename you need to reload the browser or it won't find the name yet - guess I'll bugzilla it.)

    That's actually pretty nice improvement. Also wasn't aware about the folder views - love it! Thanks :-)

    While I definitely can appreciate their thinking on this move, unfortunately it makes sorting mail MUCH MUCH slower because it has to run a query every time. Does anyone know of feature request to get the mail folder shortcuts back? If not, I'll starting one . . . No reason why Zimbra cannot support both features. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love this concept and believe it was quite lacking in version 5. Unfortunately, it's just too slow for filtering through the hundreds of email I receive every day.

    +1 for adding back the custom KB shortcuts. I loved being able to hit the "." then "1" to move messages straight into my archive folder as I deal with stuff in my inbox.

    I have added a feature enhancement to return this functionality to Zimbra 6.0. If this is an important feature to you, please vote it up:

    Post indicates typing "S" and "T" when it should be "s" and "t" within the browser.

    Very discouraged by this loss of mail folder functionality.

    Updated a previous blog post I did regarding keyboard shortcuts: http://transmission.xmission.com/200...1#comment-1059

    Rather than the previous 2 keystrokes (". #") I have it down to four ("mm + # + return") to archive messages. This is better than the mouse but still doubles the effort. I know I could hit only a single "m" but the pause waiting for Move Message is longer than typing m twice. Please bring back mail folder shortcuts.

    Agreed, miss this functionality since upgrade to 6.x. Voted for the bug mentioned above...
