    Default Archive Button

    How about adding an "Archive" button to the interface, like what GMail has?The user would specify an "Archive" folder in his settings and when he clicks on the Archive button, it would immediately move the conversation to the Archive folder.

    I realize you can do this using the Move button, but that requires two extra clicks, to select the folder you want to move to and then confirm the move.

    What would be even nicer is an "auto-file" capability. I used to use VM in Emacs as a mail client and in there you could configure a set of email -> folder name mappings. Then upon hitting the "auto-file" key combination, all the selected emails would be magically moved into the appropriate folders. I used to love that feature :-)

    In 4.5 you can assign numeric shortcuts to folders/saved-searches/tag, such that you could assign the archive folder the number "1", then just type .1 to move a message to the archive folder.

    Here is a snippet from the options page...

    ------------------------------------------------

    About Mail Folder Shortcuts:
    Assign numeric shortcuts to Mail Folders to quickly access them.
    For example, if you assign the shortcut 3 to the Folder Projects:

    * Typing v then 3 will show the Projects folder.
    * Typing . then 3 will move selected messages to the Projects folder.

    While the shortcuts are nice, I currently have over 300 folders for people, projects and organizations sitting in Zimbra[1] -- kinda hard to remember shortcuts for each of them.
    From a perspective of making email organization easy, I still haven't come up with anything better than auto-file, especially if I want my Inbox to remain uncluttered.

    Is the auto-file capability something that could be done through a zimlet?


    [1] Which I made the mistake of importing by moving mail between local folders on Thunderbird and Zimbra folder using Thunderbird. The dates are fine on Thunderbird, but in Outlook, they all have the same date (and yes, I've read up on the various threads about the date headers).

    Have you tried using the '/tb' option in Thunderbird?
