Basics of new filter actions like auto reply, forward, bounce checked in

David Bienvenu has done it again. This time with a supernice checkin that many people have requested. New filter actions: Auto reply, forward, bounce

You can now using a message filter forward your email to another account and use a auto reply. The auto reply feature is implemented using message templates. So first you create a message template. Then you create a message filter and use the template as reply template. Way cool.

I use server side filters but some people might not have access to server side filters and now Mozilla Thunderbird support very strong client side filters.

You mention you use "Server side filters".
Just out of interest, what product do you use ?

Thunderbird 1.1 will allow users to have email automatically forwarded or send auto-responders based on mail filters. Cool.

This is great news. A really nice feature.

What I'd like to see is a one-click option to find my answer to an email I got.

How do I do this in firebird 1.0.6 ? I can create a template and a filter, but I don't have the action
"forward to" and "reply with template" ?

Hi all

As a non - technical person, can you explain to me how I can implement this solution?

Am not sure if it is a patch or plug-in.

Appreciate anyassistance you are able to offer.
