Smart Rules for Inboxes (Minor enhancement)

Apologies if there is a way to do this, but I can’t find it…

At the moment there doesn’t seem to be a way to apply a single rule to all Inboxes – you have to choose one of them specifically for each rule, in a way you don’t have to when you choose the ‘Databases’ line.

That means that if I want to apply a label automatically to any file arriving in any of the seven inboxes, I have to create seven identical rules, which is cluttersome and harder (well, more boring) to maintain… This wouldn’t be necessary if the entry for Inboxes in the dropdown list acted in the same as ‘Databases’ – as a top level catchall.

Only minor at this stage, obviously, but thought it was worth mentioning as a possible enhancement in due course. Thanks.

Thanks for the suggestion, a future release might support this (as searching in all inboxes is already possible via the toolbar).

Thanks Criss!
