I'd like to run rules on emails that already exist. Not just on new ones. That way I can lable all old emails that meet a certain criteria.
It is possible to create rules based on "User Actions" not just Incoming and Outgoing email. However there are currently limited options.
One that I would like to see is "star" - if I add a star to an email then I want to be able to create rules based on that condition.
Feature like in Gmail or in Apple Mail. When I create a rule, then I want apply this rule to all my existing conversations

Actually saw you've already upvoted, my bad ;-)
Is there a button to manually push rules?
Manually activate a rule - yes!
This is a huge one for us and something we use quite frequently directly in Gmail. We tag for organization and when we need to re-categorize something or add a new category it also requires applying to the existing conversations. Many times it's not possible to manually do this for each email + set the rule.
I can do this in Gmail still but Missive won't pickup the changes since, I assume, they have already scanned those emails and don't look back.
Would make things so much easier!
