Enhance Email Filtering Options

For those who use it, the email filtering option is a fantastic feature that enables the user to ask the server to perform a certain action when email that matches a certain criteria are met. However, unlike other mail solutions, cPanel's solution is quite limited, so I would love to see some more options.


Currently, the main "rules" (excluding spam and other uncommon ones) that can be completed are:

  1. From
  2. Subject
  3. To
  4. Reply
  5. Body
  6. Any Header
  7. Any Recipient

I would like to see:

  1. Apply to All
  2. Within specific time or date range
  3. With an attachment
  4. To/Cc/Bcc/Reply To options (e.g. sent only to me, when I'm CC'd.....)
  5. Sensitivity or Importance markings


Currently, the "actions" that can be completed are:

  1. Discard Message
  2. Redirect to Email
  3. Fail with Message (which returns a "Mail Delivery System - Mail Delivery Failed" error from the daemon/server)
  4. Stop Processing Rules
  5. Deliver to Folder

I would love to see:

  1. Mark it as read
  2. Mark it as flagged
  3. Delete it
  4. Change "Deliver to Folder" to "Move" and "Copy" options
  5. Automatic Response (NOT the Daemon but rather like an auto-response where I control 100% of the message)


Further ideas can be found within Office Outlook, Google Mail, and other places, which all have far more in-depth options.
