How to Send and Archive in One Go with Postbox

By

Reply, send, archive: the routine is simple. It is not so simple, though, that it could not be made a tad easier still.

In Postbox, you can get a command that combines Send and Archive into one for email replies. It might not save you a single click, but Send and Archive limits the pointing to a narrow region.

Send and Archive in One Go with Postbox

To send a reply and move the original message to the account's Archive folder immediately:

  • Make sure sending and archiving is enabled in Postbox. (See below.)
  • Click the down arrow next to Send in the message's toolbar.
  • Select Send and Archive from the menu that pops up.
    • You can also select File | Send and Archive from the menu.

The message to which you were replying will be moved to the archiving folder; your reply will be kept in the Sent Mail folder.
