Running Sierra and having a few little headaches after having to switch to Google business for my email. I want to set up a rule that only applies to one account. I have 3 mail accounts in apple mail. I have to use POP mail for my business account and the issue with Gmail and POP accounts is when you send an email it puts the sent message in my inbox. I made a rule to put anything from my own email account in my sent box, this works great accept if I get sent something from my business email to my personal email the rule applies and puts it in the sent box rather then my personal inbox.

How do I set up a rule to put all emails from [email protected] in my sent box but only apply that to [email protected]ca and not [email protected] and [email protected] accounts?


I have this rule already set up but is not working as I need it to, everything from my business email is still going to sent box even from my personal emails.

I have never encountered such a problem with any gmail account and Mail, POP or IMAP, but I've not had to use Sierra either which sounds like it's goofing things up.

I assume you got it setup properly using such sites as this one for help if needed:
https://www.lifewire.com/set-up-gmail-account-with-macs-mail-application-2260069

If I recall when using a rule, there was some option as to what order the rule was done. Something you might want to check.

PS: From what I read from your filter screen shot, Mail is doing just what you told it to do, and I'd suspect you need to restrict it more if you can.

I posted this on another forum and someone said I should try changing in the rules "any" to "all" which seems to have worked.

I have always found the language and words used are very precise and particular and it helps to think like you are speaking Robot English when setting up and creating a rule. And even then, sometimes wonder why it's not working as expected.

I'm glad to hear you found a solution. Congratulations.

Er... shouldn't that rule be "All" and not "Any"?

Cheers

Edited to add: Oh hell, you already found the solution :)

Now was that part of some "fuzzy set theory" or something just warm and cuddly…??? :D
