Highlight threads that I have posted to in mail/news
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030703 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030703 It would be extremely helpful if Mozilla mail/news would highlight any threads that I have been posting to. Currently, I am involved in some lengthy threads that can get lost and forgotten. I have no way to distinguish new messages on a given mailing list between postings that I am and am not involved in. The mail reader could look for a option (highlightmythreads) while displaying each message. If the message is in a thread that I have posted to then it should be marked, highlighted or something. To know if I have posted to a thread: 1) each email message sent is logged to some thread index 2) or for each message being displayed, search for a message from firstname.lastname@example.org with the same threading id Should probably limit the searches to the same folder. I have each mailing list sorted into separate folders on the server before I get them but others might leave them all in one folder. Either way I would not want this feature searching all 5 thousand messages that I have on my IMAP server. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
Summary: Feature request; highlighting threads that I have posted to in mail/news → Highlight threads that I have posted to in mail/news
I remember seeing a bug along these lines somewhere, but can't seem to find it at the moment. What I do is anytime I make a news post, I immediately flag the thread as important. (right-click context menu). That way, I can zip through a thread and see the red ones and if they have new posts.
But my method also allows for you to follow the thread when not in threaded view
The intent of this bug request, flagging articles posted in follow up to your own, or articles which are of interest to your, really requires a small set of enhancements - at minimum: 1. automatically create a filter or some other flagging machanism when you post, and 2. have the filter expire after xx days for #1 see bug 148755 which has extensive discussion for #2 see my bug 123375 bug 91052 goes a step further, asking for a special visual or audible notification I used tin newsreader (still do) where #1+#2 are taken for granted - it's just there and it's indispensable is like bread and butter. I know many other newsreaders have similar capability. It's about time moz did too.

I voted for this so that it might not get closed? it's not a bug. it's a feature request and should not be closed for inactivity. The only reason to close would be it was implemented or it was stated that it COULD NOT/WOULD not be implemented.
didn't intend to assign
