How to handle multiple messags being received from one sender.
I am running a campaign with craigslist.  
The bat is a great tool and has helped me tremendously but there is one problem that affects me again and again.

My filters look something like this:
If AG1 does not contain sender:  send email 1.

If AG1 does contain sender
AND AG2 does not contain sender:  send email 2

If AG2 does contain sender
AND AG3 does not contain sender:  send email 3

When some one replies to my ad 3 or 4 times before they get a response it triggers the bat to send out all 3 of my emails to them at the same time.

Is there a way to say "if outbox queue contains sender" or something like this?
I presume that AG1, AG2 and AG3 are address groups and that you add your contacts to those groups with the same filter that creates the reply.
Use an additional address group: Pending
Have the filters add the contact to Pending and to the relevant other group. And let the filter trigger when the sender is not in Pending.
Use an outgoing filter that checks whether the recipient is in Pending and have it delete the recipient from pending, outgoing filters are executed when the message has been sent, so during the time the message is located in the outbox any additional messages will be ignored by your filters.
I'm just a user of The Bat! I don't work for Ritlabs.
