Hello, I've got a number of tagged messages across various folders in various mailboxes.

I'd like to have a permanent tab in Thunderbird alongside the mail/calendar/tasks tab that will show just those tagged messages - is that possible? Or is there another one click way to view all my tagged messages?

Thank you.

You could create a saved search folder whose contents are based on search criteria such as any messages with certain tags in the specified mailboxes, and then open that folder in a tab. The name can be misleading as it has nothing to do with global search, its actually a virtual folder whose contents are updated every time you open it.

Thank you @tanstaafl - that seems to work :) I'd actually discounted saved searches because when creating them it only seemed to let me choose a single account, but I now see that once created I can update the saved search to include folders across all accounts.

And Thunderbird appears to remember the tab and reopen it when restarting.

Looks promising :)
