Jane needs to import a bundle of mails from one place to the other. She can chose either MIME or Mbox data to add email messages to a selected folder.
Similar to folders, Jane is using Tags to separate and organize her E-Mails. Tags are showing up as a colored reference in the subject line of the referenced E-Mails. The nice thing: Tags can be reused across the Kolab components – E-Mail, Calendar, Notes, Files and Tasks.

For example the server can move the message to a specified folder, redirect it to another account, send a reply, discard, delete, etc for as long as the defined criteria is fulfilled.
