Rules for incoming mail
« on: January 08, 2014, 02:56:29 am »
I believe this has been requested in the past but if not here it is.

Aquamail is already a great app. It would be even more terrific if it had the ability for users to create rules for incoming mail. For instance the ability to say
"if email comes from...., please delete"
" if email contains xyx, do the following"
Etc

If in addition, AM could create local folders, the combination with the above rules capability would make it really powerful and unique among android mail clients.

Please make it happen. You can do it.

Thanks!

That would be ideal because I make extensive use of rules in Thunderbird and find them very useful. But, any rule capability would be welcome. Please Kostya.

He will say,   do filtering at server side and folders will be synced, and pop3 is outdated.

Yes, that's exactly what I'm going to say :)

For IMAP, most if not all mail systems (gmail, yahoo, aol, fastmail, gmx, etc.) support server side rules.

Why do this in a mail app when you can have the server "put it on a plate", so each message is synced into the right folder the first time through?

As for POP3 -- well, some mail providers only offer POP3 and no IMAP...

Just like I suppose there are people who still listen to Billy Idol. Maybe those are same people (working at those mail providers, I mean)? :)
