Organising Sent emails in Thunderbird

Organising Sent emails in Thunderbird

I’ve written previously about my love for Thunderbird and Getting Things Done and now it’s just got even better!

I save a copy of every email that goes out to one of my clients:

a) As a reminder so I can flag it as “Waiting for”
b) To cover my back
c) For reference so I know what I’ve been talking to them about
d) To prove to my boss I actually do some work sometimes cheeky tongue

Until now, I’ve been going into my main “Sent Items” folder and then dragging the email into the appropriate “Sent” folder under the client’s main folder, but I won’t have to do that any more!

Purely by accident I discovered the “Send a copy to” function under the options menu (click the image below for a larger version):

Send a copy of this email to another folder in thunderbird

Now I don’t have to bother going into my “Sent Items” folder, I can automatically copy the message into the appropriate client folder – yeay!

Boy I wish I had found this sooner!
