Starting with wMobile for GoldMine 126.96.36.1998, users can manage their emails in a faster and lightweight way using local rules for incoming emails.
We are calling this feature Local Email Rules because it shouldn’t be confused with online rules created and applied in Gmail, Microsoft Outlook, Yahoo, and others—this is only processing incoming emails when fetching from the server to the local storage.
Rules work in both IMAP and POP3 email account types but the only difference is that the ‘MoveTo’ action is restricted on POP3 since there are no other online folders than Inbox.
A local rule can be viewed like a structure with 2 major components: the condition and the action. When the condition is evaluated as true, the actions are triggered.
The rule condition contains one or more filters, as follows:
Note that filters on FROM, TO, SUBJECT, BODY are applied with CONTAINS functions.
Example: Incoming email (Subject=’Please send invoice details’) is evaluated as matching when the email rule condition value has: SUBJECT=’invoice’ because it acts like CONTAINS.
A rule can be set for one folder or all. Setting up a rule with no condition (no values in FROM/TO/SUBJECT/BODY/ATTACHMENTS) will result in the processing of all incoming emails from the selected folder.
The rule action contains one or more sub-actions, as follows:
The IsEnabled flag controls if the rule will be triggered or not when fetching emails. There should be cases when the user wants to disable all rules and re-enable them later without deleting and re-creating them again.
Rules can be created/edited only in the Edit Email Account phase. In the previous picture, the last rule is enabled which means it is the only one that gets triggered.
This rule has the following functions:
The images above include the same email rule we explained for wMobile for GoldMine: Desktop above.
