Mail Tip: Context Sensitive Menu

Post by Stephen Hart » Thu Feb 13, 2014 7:56 am

For a while, Mail has had context sensitive menus for certain items it can recognize.
If you hover over such an item, a reveal triangle will appear (image 1).
If you click, you get the contextual menu (image 2)

I just discovered this morning that Mail recognized UPS tracking numbers. One of the menu options is Track Shipment..., which opens a browser window right in Mail (image 3).
