Operating system: macOS Monterey version 12.0.1.

In Apple Mail, I use Smart Mailboxes to organize incoming mail. I'd like to better organize Sent mail. Does any means exist within Apple Mail to organize Sent mail by directing sent mail into specific folders?

If possible, how do I do it?

Alternatively, does mail have any other capacity (such as Numbers ability or organize data by category) to address the issue.

I've found a clunky way to do this.

In Mail, under On My Mac, I set up a folder called "Sent ordered"

Under this folder I set up a number of sub folders.

In Mail > Preferences > Rules I set up a number of rules. Each rule has a configuration like the following:

Again, a bit clunky but it works.

  • You can do similar with smart mailboxes - set the From setup and thgen the other rulkes
