I use SeaMonkey 1.1.12 on Ubuntu Linux and I want to get the following
behaviour from the SeaMonkey mail client:
Some of the mail messages I receive I want to save them in a custom
folder in my home directory. Let's call it here "important-mail". The
"important-mail" folder MUST NOT be located under the "Local Folders"
folder which is accessible from the mail client interface but must be
accessible from the folder pane in the same way we access our usual
folders. Thus, saving email messages in the filesystem should be a
simple drag & drop operation instead of a boring File/Save
as/etc. Also reading messages should be simpler then reading a saved
message since I don't have to open them by going through the File
menu, but will be enough to click on "important-mail" folder and then
on the message subject.
Solutions for Seamonkey on MS Windows are welcomed too.
First of all thank you for the reply.
If I'm understanding you right, you can right click on your email
address and add a new folder. I have two: Temp and Keepers.
Porbably I didn't explain very well. I have lots of folders but all of
them are on the IMAP server and of course, I can copy/move messages
between them. I do not have problems creating folders on the server.
My problem is creating folders on my filesystem. And I want these
folders to behave like those on the server.
The perfect example of such a folder (and of what I want) is the
"Local folders" folder which is stored on my machine filesystem and
which is accessible from the "folder pane".
Can I create another folder similar to "Local folders" which is not
stored under "Local folders"?
> I drag
emails about orders etc into Temp until the order is received. Keepers
is for later archiving as .txt or .eml files on another hard drive.
Cristi, the short answer is "Yes and No"!
The "Local Folders" folder is, effectively, another email account, just
as your email account is an email account. If you want to have another
email account, select Edit|Mail&Newsgroup Account Settings and give
yourself another account.
If, however, Cristi, all you're looking for is somewhere to store your
various folders from your IMAP server on your computer, then you just
need to create some folders, either under your mail account or under
your "Local Folders" and move your mail there.
Under my email account, I have added extra folders for various groups of
emails I receive, i.e. emails from my family goes into a folder called
"2009_Sisters", email from my local astronomy group goes into my
"2009_ASAW" folder, etc., etc. Then, at the end of the year, I will move
all these "2009_...." groups over to my Local Folders and make a group
of "2010_...." folders under my email account.
If this is what you want, select your email account (the account name
not the inbox under your email account) and select File|New|Folder and
give it a suitable name, then move all your emails from your IMAP account.
