I often find myself skimming through the inbox for messages from particular senders. This could be facilitated if all messages in the message list, from the sender of the message currently selected, were highlighted in some way, possibly by a different line colour, a different text colour, or perhaps a thin line on one of the vertical sides of the message list.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select a message in the message list
Actual Results:  
Nothing special happens

Expected Results:  
I would want the following to happen:
All messages which have the same sender as the selected message should be highlighted.
So you would want dynamic virtual folders (that would tag your emails to get them colored ?) ?

I think reporter wants this:

STR

Inbox with messages:
1 msg from Jim
2 msg from Joe
3 msg from Jane
4 msg from Joe
5 msg from Jim

Select msg 4 from Joe
-> msg 2, which is also from Joe, will receive some sort of temporary visual pointer to show that this message is from the same sender as the currently selected msg. So if you skim through your msg list, you can immediately identify all mail from the same sender as current msg sender.
Summary: Highlight all messages from current sender → When selecting message, visually highlight all messages from sender of current message in same folder/view
