Hi, I thought it could be useful on the Disappearing mail wiki page to add an extra tip:

Enable "View -> Threads -> Ignored Threads" to check for emails which may have been ignored (e.g. by knocking the 'K' key)

E.g. or if a baby sitting on one's lap does so. ;-) Man that took a long time to figure out!! I could move the email from All Mail elsewhere, but when putting it back into the Inbox it just seem to vanish.

1. I was under the impression that I could create an account and add this tip to the wiki myself? If so, I couldn't figure out how.
2. Aside: I never did like single-letter accelerators, e.g. many list views in Windows allow you to search for an item by typing; a recipe for bloopers there.

I've moved this to the Site Discussion forum and add a link in the Knowledge Base thread to this topic so people that work on the KB are more active.

For future reference, you can post these kinds of requests here: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=2825891

In that thread, there are also instructions for how to get edit rights in the KB. Generally, we prefer members stick around and obtain a decent post history prior to granting edit rights. We've had some problems with spammers in the past.

Please do not PM me for personal support. Keep posts here in the Forums instead and we all learn.
