Thanks, Robert (and my apologies for the delay in getting back to you). I'm
using your first suggested method, and that seems to work pretty well.
On the second suggestion (rule to set a colour), I use lots of message rules
that are applied to incoming messages to file them in appropriate folders.
But I can't see how to do what you suggest. Say, for example, that I wanted
to identify all messages that I have actioned in some way -- what condition
could I choose that would recognise messages that have been 'actioned'?
