Geary Adds Option To Save Sent Mail

As the title says Geary added a new option to save sent mails. This is for the unstable 0.5 version, towards to the stable 0.6.

This adds the ability for Geary to push sent mail up to the account’s Sent Mail folder (if available). There’s an accompanying account option that defaults to on (meaning: push sent mail).

The current implementation will leave messages in the Outbox (though they won’t be sent again) if they fail to be pushed to Sent Mail. This isn’t the best solution, but it at least means you have a way of seeing the problem and hopefully copying the data elsewhere manually if you need to save it.

Note that Geary might not always recognize an account’s Sent Mail folder. This is the case for any “Other” accounts that don’t support the “special use” or “xlist” IMAP extensions. In this case, Geary will either throw an error and leave messages in the Outbox, or erase the message from the Outbox when it’s sent, depending on the value of the account’s save sent mail option. Better support for detecting the Sent Mail folder in every case is coming soon.

This is just one more new feature of Geary 0.5. I used to refer the most “interesting” features one by one, so don’t suppose that’s the only one. The question here is if people should use the development version of Geary. It is easy to build it from sources ( it takes 3-4 mins ), and it is much much better than 0.4.

Any known regressions in the unstable 0.5? If someone knows..
