Feature request: Prevent moving messages between accounts

Reported by Nitin | September 9th, 2013 @ 12:25 PM


I have "Work" and "Personal" IMAP accounts setup in MailMate. If there is an option in MailMate to restrict the movement of messages between two account, that could be pretty useful, at least for me. What are your views?

    • State changed from “new” to “accepted”

    A “simple” GUI option would be to give the user a checkmark option to “isolate” an account. Isolation would mean that no message could be moved out of the account (and probably also, no message could be moved into the account).

    The most general solution would be: For any given set of messages (e.g., based on a query/smart mailbox), restrict the IMAP accounts/mailboxes to which they can be moved. With respect to GUI, each IMAP mailbox could have two settings: “Allow moving messages to” and “Allow receiving messages from”. Each with a mailbox argument.

    I'm not sure this is something needed by a lot of users. The issue (also implementation) is open for discussion. I'll put it in an “accepted” state, but it's not a high priority item.
