There was a suggestion for something like that back earlier this year 
(see http://lists.freron.com/mailmate/2015-January/003756.html) or here:

So, if you feel like it, you could look into using a third-party 
software to make this process automatic, like the mentioned Automator 
(https://help.apple.com/automator/mac/10.11/index.html?lang=en) or a 
third-party tool like "Alfred" (http://www.alfredapp.com).

Or you can wait until Benny finds the time to implement something like 
this. I suggest you give Automator or another software a go that makes 
use of workflows: You specify the things you want to be done once, then 
the software remembers it and you only have to issue the command.
