incoming email, reply to thread, move to original folder RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone.
    I tried to search for this but maybe I'm missing the keywords to get what I need.

    I received an email with 20 people on the To: me included with a specific subject, related to a specific project.

    I move the first email to the previously created folder 'specific_project' for example.

    So my inbox is now empty, and I have 1 email on the folder 'specific_project'

    Now when any of these 20 people reply, the email goes to my inbox, instead of going for the 'specific_project' folder. It's very annoying because I'm used to make my inbox as clean as possible,

    There is any way, to move automatically the replies to the original folder 'do not track folder'?

    I know this can be done using a simple rule, if subject='specific project' then move to 'specific folder' 
    although for someone who receives dozens of emails per day, I don't want to rely on individual rules.
    and because people are people and most of the time the subject is random..

    Thank you

    Joana.

    >> I move the first email to the previously created folder 'specific_project' for example.

    When you move the first email, please select "Always Move Messages in This Conversation...".

    Hope this can be helpful.

  • Thank you Aidan, this is what I was looking for, even though I would prefer an automate way of doing this everytime I drag and drop the message. but is not working the Drag and Drop, I need to click 'move to this conversation' but its working. It helps :)

    Thank you
