Automate rule creation based on sender in Mail
Authored by: Zonker1967 on Aug 17, '06 08:10:56AM

Back in the day, Eudora would let you select a message and then create a folder on-the-fly while trying to file a message. I came across this hint while searching for something similar in Mail.app, moving the message to a previously non-existent folder.

I can't believe that Mail.app still doesn't have that feature. I get so frustrated when I'm trying to move a message (or create a rule which moves a message) and realize after I've started that my destination folder doesn't exist. So I have to quit the operation, find/select the folder I want as the parent folder, create the new folder, move BACK to the location of the message to be moved and start from Square One. What a pain.

If I understand this hint correctly, it provides this missing functionality. So, I see this hint as being extremely useful, filling in a gap in the feature set that Apple has provided.
