I would be nice to have a way to either create virtual folders combining selected other folders, or to be able to mark arbitrary folders as inboxes.
I have one IMAP server where I collect mail from several other mail accounts. Each mail gets sorted by the mail server into appropriate sub folders. Therefore I have multiple “inbox” folders in my IMAP account. I would like to have one (virtual) folder to rule them all so I can have a quick overview over new email, independent from their source.
Does this feature exist in another mail client or tool you use?
Yes. For example in Evolution you can create so called “search folders” with criteria matching multiple source folders. Then that folder will show all mails from the selected folders combined.
