A customer has a requirement for outgoing emails to be "auto-filed" as
they are sent.
I'm not sure how you might prompt for a customer number but one idea may be to just use Thunderbirds mail filters to
sort the mail. For example if you had a filter on the "Sent" folder to search the "To: address and then move the mail
into a folder with the given domain name.
I know that it would be possible to create a filter per customer and thus each filter would search for
"To:*@customer1.com.au" and move the e-mail to the folder "customer1", second filter for customer2 etc but whether this
could be a single generic filter using a variable for the domain name to folder mapping I'm not sure. If they have a
large customer base that was forever changing, creating a filter for each customer could become a bit of a maintenance
If the folders are on an Imap server using maildir format, then each e-mail file would in fact be moved to separate
