    Default Sent email sorting

    I now have several accounts set up on the server and personally, several pop3 accounts.

    When I send an email through a certain account (that is not default), by going to the sent folder, I cannot identify which message was sent by what account.

    How can I add an account column to the sent view OR automatically send messages sent to the correct mail box?

    You can't add a column to the display but you can use the Search function on the Sent folder, you can also save a search if you need to do it on a regular basis.

    what I want to do is quickly move sent emails, by account, into their main folders. I have 8 pop3 accounts - using search is going to be a slow process!

    How so? Enter "in: Sent AND from: xyz@domain.com" in the Search box and boom, you've got your results. Searching is very fast in Zimbra, and as Phoenix suggested, you can save your searches. If you save the searches they will show up either in or below your folders, depending on how you set them up. Clicking on the saved search should bring up the results very quickly. You may find that you don't even need to move the messages, as the saved searches are essentially "virtual" folders.

    There are a couple of RFEs in bugzilla relating to applying filters to outbound mail and running filters on mail already received if you would like to search and vote.

    As soxfan has already said, the search function is not slow at all, the aim of that function is not to require you to file messages in folders (but you can if you want) and to allow you to get messages using saved searches. Try it, you might find it does just what you want.

    soxfan,

    on one or two accounts, it is not an issue - I have 8 pop accounts and the master domain - thats 9different sorts!

    OK, I am not comparing like for like, but with a certain other product, you can sort by account (column) and then drag/drop in to relevant account.

    A way around this is to have a 'save sent messages in account folder' or similar.

    I dont want to sound aggresive, but you have to get of the 'this is the best thing and way of doing it'. A vast majority of people are coming from one or two major email products, where certain functionality is is used daily. DOnt forget, Redmond had been doing email a few years longer than most other players and they do have some good functions that it might be worth adapting!!!!
