Using Mail's rules, smart mailboxes, and VIPs
Posted 04 April 2013 - 09:28 AM
What rules don't do as well is deal with outgoing mail, which I also want to file. My workaround is to create multiple signatures, each of which has a unique text tag that a rule then uses to file the message when I process the Sent folder periodically.
The absence of rules in iOS Mail is its greatest shortcoming. I find it hard to use compared to the desktop version for that reason. It's my number one feature request.

Really. Mail's lack of nested conditions for rules and smart mailboxes frustratingly limits what's possible.

I operate in the same way. But why isn't there a way t automatically file those outgoing emails? The way it is I have to go into each SENT folder, highlight all, and then select APPLY RULES. This works, but is there a way this can happen automatically?
