However, its not an option to me to compare each new email individually against the address book, since we have hundreds of new emails daily. We just want to avoid replying to the same email addresses we already did in past and which are not sits into address book.
In my earlier message, I said:
|However, maybe you could automatically add all outgoing addresses to your address book (*), and then filter new messages on whether the sender is already in the address book - in other words, that you've already sent him mail at some point (I'm almost positive that there's a command for that).|
In other words: When you send a message to someone, The Bat should add that person's address to the Address Book. For this, you use Options | Preferences | Address History | Collect addresses from: OUTGOING Mail
Then, when new messages come in, The Bat should apply a filter to check if the senders are already in the address book. So, you must write a filter for incoming mail, that checks if the sender is in the address book. For that, your filter would use this condition: "Address Book" "Contains" "Sender". The filter can then move matching messages to a different folder, or it can assign a color group to them, or do whatever you like.
