automatic storing IMAP emails (also sent) older than 30 days to save IMAP space
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/534.30 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/12.0.742.122 Safari/534.30 Steps to reproduce: I try using IMAP. My IMAP server offers me 300mb space, but I quite often exceed this space, so I'd like to have my inbox- and sent-folder archived automatically but maintaining the folder structure. I have a feature request respectively an idea I'd like to contribute. Actual results: Using filters to archive Inbox automatically works only for Inbox and only If I but the out of it into a Local Folder... thus breaking my familiar structure of having all mails in inbox in each of my 5 mail accounts. If I start to archive everything in Local Folders it'll result in 5 times inbox (for each account) and 5 time ient (for each account). Besides it's not possible to archive emails in "Sent-Folders" automatically (by e.g. using filter rules). Expected results: Currently Thunderbird offers for IMAP folders the setting to delete mails of certain age to save server space. But I'd like to have a setting not to delete the mails, but to seperate the mails e.g. of the Sent-Folder visually from the younger ones on the server and to save them locally in the sent/inbox folder of the Imap account. But in a manner, that the server doesn't see them (deleted--> save space) but only thunderbird manages it to have them in its inbox-folder (slightly highlighted) only on the hard drive. To explain it easier I have attached a PDF with my idea/concept of it. It looks quite easy to understand and it's absolutely intuitive. I hope someone of you can give me some feedback and sees a way to implement it somehow somewhen..., as this would be an absolute unique thunderbird feature! Yours sincerely W. Missal
