    I am coming to Windows Mail/Vista from Pegasus Mail/XP and find a couple of
    functions missing.

    Q1. Is there any way to indicate in the list of messages, whether we have
    replied to a message? I would like a flag to appear automagically when I
    have replied to a message.

    Q2. Is there any way to set a mail folder to automatically delete messages
    after a set period of time? E.G. Inbox messages delete after 90 days,
    Sent items delete after 60 days, other folders delete after a given time and
    other folders never delete.

    Thanks

    Tony

    I am an OE user.
    Doesn't WinMail put a purple arrow on the envelope icon when you reply to a
    message?
    In OE Help, icons, message list icons

  4. Q1. It's automatic. The icon changes if you have replied. (little purple
    arrow)
    Q2. No. You could make a message rule and apply it manually.

  5. Could they have made it any more obscure?
    I never noticed the little purple arrow before, and I still
    have trouble seeing it on my laptop screen.

    You are right. I never noticed that. I was looking in the flag column
    for some indication there :-{
    Maybe if a developer is listening they might add a few "date" options in the
    message rules conditions.


    Thanks to all for the help
