OK, maybe this one is crazy, so go ahead and shoot ...
I think about a mail rule that would apply on a folder. So condition would be : when I drag and drop a mail into that particular folder it would trigger the action : send a copy to X for instance, block sender, ... whatever could be useful (standard actions of course, goal is not to code).
Crazy? In combination with SwiftFile this would allow a super-fast handling of massive mail-in databases' Inbox by dispatching mails semi-automatically and be manageable by the end-users.
Shoot ... ;-)

So a per-folder mail rule, rather than for the whole db?
This would be relatively easy to code, using the QueryAddToFolder event, looking up to a table of rules

It's a novel idea, though I don't think there would be much demand for it by the masses. What you are effectively doing is defining mail rules without a predefined selection criteria. You are then applying a rule to each message manually. Understanding that posting it here doesn't get it done, if you need this type of functionality, check out Bob Balfe's project at openntf.org for running mail rules manually. Then you can select the messages you want to run a rule against. { Link }
