Smart Mailbox header problem?

Reported by Eric A. Meyer | November 2nd, 2012 @ 07:41 PM

I can’t seem to find the header that corresponds to the status of a message. For example, I want to create a mailbox that is “All unreplied messages in the past week”. The “past week” part is easy enough (I just duplicated “Last Week”) but none of the headers I’ve tried to use for “unreplied” seem to work. I tried Status, X-Status, X-Read, and Reply-Type, all like so:

Date: is within last 7 days
Status: is not R

...and various value permutations for the various listed headers. In every case I ended up with an empty Smart Mailbox, except one where I had a single message—and I know I have more unreplied messages than that.

Am I just trying to use the wrong header?

    Yes, those are all non-common headers. What you are looking for is the \Answered IMAP keyword. You need a condition like this:

    Keywords does not include Answered

    Note that this only works as long as you use email clients which actually set the \Answered flag when answering a message.

    Somewhat related is the possibilities of using the “is in” comparison method as shown in ticket #224. It can be used to create a mailbox showing messages for which you have not yet received replies. Also more about the “is in” comparison method here.
