That is right, with TB there are different ways to basically achieve the same. Flags, tags, colour groups, virtual folders, filters or a mix of them. I personally have used the following setup for many years. I use SmartSpace (https://www.ritlabs.com/en/support/tips-and-tricks/3961/) for reading messages, and also some Read filters. If I want to keep, mark somehow, etc. a message as "Action- Reply" I flag it before hitting Space bar and then a Read filter will move it to my "Action-Reply" folder. Then I have a virtual subfolder called "Must Reply" that will display messages in "Action Reply" older than 10 days and which 'Message attributes" is 'not replied'. Then I use 'Replied filters' to move the messages to appropriate folder, if needed. It may seem a bit awkward, but has worked for me for many years. -- Best regards, Miguel A.
