tag inbound email with Virtual mail folders

Reported by Peter Kakris | December 4th, 2013 @ 10:42 PM

I love the tagging of email I am creating.

however i want to be able to tag inbound emails
Then i can use these tag to manage my actions of the emails.
moving email into 1 folder isn't helpful as the message may be classified in many ways

end result: I want virtual mail folders such as
TODo & High Priority & Project X
TODo & Medium Priority & Project X
TODo & Project Y

    Not sure I understand the request. You have:

    • The tagging interface opened using 't'.
    • Rules (experimental feature enabled in the General preferences pane) which can automatically tag incoming messages.
    • Smart mailboxes to display messages with any given set of tags.

    Could you describe your problem in more detail?

    i didn't realise I could add tags by pressing T
    i looking in the menus to,
    maybe add to the "View" menu

    This is a killer feature - make it obvious for people evaluating it

    it works great thanks!!!!!

    • State changed from “new” to “resolved”

    I'll see what I can do. Note that the shortcut is shown and can be changed in the Tags preferences pane (⌘,).
