Re: [Evolution] Move mail to where?

Hi Milan

Getting a good UI for those features can be hard, indeed. I have been
thinking on a project/idea like this for a long time, but I didn't think
on a UI, just that you could have a file with the rules to follow.
Similar to the way procmail or dropmail rules are stored.

Brainstorming a bit, it would seem more suited to have a pluggable rules
engine where those could be added. A filter engine would provide in
advance the fields it could need -up to the full mail- (so that the
client doesn't require fetching everything from the server just to run a
filter), and the result of running it over an email would return one or
more actions to take (move/copy/delete/mark as important/add label X...)

Then something that exceeded the normal filters could be outsourced to a
custom one (and it would then be the filter responsibility how to
determine the rules to apply).

Best regards
