Description Gerard Seibert 2015-02-02 20:24:35 CET
Clams-Mail has the ability to have a 'default' "TO" or "Reply-To:" address set in a folder. However, there is no way to set a 'default' "TO" for forwarded mail. There is also no default template for mail "Forwarded as an Attachment".

I believe that the addition of these two items would greatly enhance claws-mail's usefulness.

You can create a template, /Configuration/Templates, setting the To address. Then apply it to a forwarded message.

I wonder - would it make sense to have the "Default To" setting also apply when forwarding a message from that folder?

Unless I am doing this wrong, that would require me to choose the messages to be forwarded, then click "Forward" and then <tools> <Templates> then the template name, then <replace> or <insert>. That is more work than I am doing right now.

By the way, I just discovered a possible bug in that also. I entered several different email addresses into the "TO" field of the template when IO created it. However, when I attempt to actually use the template, only the last entered address is shown or used. Is this a bug?

What are you doing right now?

Works for me. Probably you have made a mistake in your template. Address in the To field should be separated by comma.
