How to automatically tag replied messages based on recieved message tag?

Posted

Why I need it... I am working on several projects and I want to have all the email communication sorted in folders based on projects name. I can't use filters based on email address, because lot of the people I work with appear in more than one project. That is why I manually tag incoming emails and use filters to move tagged messages from inbox to projects folders. I would like to have both recieved and replied (and sent) messages sorted into projects folders. But I don't know, how to do it... if there was a way to automatically tag replies, it would really help me. Or is there any other way? Thank you.

You can make a filter that acts on the Sent folder, and have it tag and move messages, but if the aim is to have replies stored in the same folder as the message to which they are replies, a project folder, you might consider the Copy Sent to Current add-on. It will copy a reply to a message that is in a project folder into the same folder. There are versions for TB 60 and 68.
