Automatically save email as html/text/rtf in a local folder?

Asked by joshuav (17 points ) June 2nd, 2009

i would like to setup an email client to have a filter such that whenever something happens (eg, an email is sent from a particular person), the email is automatically saved to some folder (that i specify), in some generic format (eg, txt, html, etc.). does anybody know of a good way to set this up? i couldn’t figure it out on mail or thunderbird (i’m on a mac). thanks

I don’t use Thunderbird because it seems to have too many user issues, including a long history of filters not working. However, there is this download for Thunderbird filters from Feb. 2009, so perhaps after two years they’ve finally solved this bug?

not sure what “call IT” means. the import/export filter add-on you suggests only imports/exports the filters. i don’t want to import/export the filters. rather, i want to export all the emails that get filtered. any ideas?
