Feature request: Replies inherit parent tags

Reported by Sam T | February 22nd, 2018 @ 06:01 PM

I have some rules for auto-tagging messages as they arrive in my inbox. This works great for organizing everything within smart mailboxes. Ideally, I would also like my sent messages to be included in the smart mailboxes so that I can have complete threads captured there together. Currently, I have to remember to tag my replies manually for this to work, and I often forget to do so. This could be solved automatically if there were an option for Replies to inherit tags from the parent message. I don't know of a way to implement this within MailMate's existing functionality, but it would be a useful feature for me.

    • State changed from “new” to “accepted”

    This is essentially how the Muted feature works, but it's not (yet) a general feature.

    As a workaround you might be able to utilise something like this on your Sent Messages mailbox:

    Condition: Thread-ID is in [Smart mailbox with tagged messages] Thread-ID
    Action: Tag with the same tag

    You'll need one for each tag.
