The smart mailbox can check incoming and outgoing mailboxes for mails that have any recipient or sender be the specified email address (or more). Basically, the exact conditions, Andrew, that you set up for your rule except that applied for a smart mailbox with INBOX and SENT as source mailboxes. No need to actually move physical messages.

My rationale is as follows: Moving emails into dedicated folders takes them out of the main inbox. If I didn’t do this, then the inbox would consist of literally all my incoming mail, both in MM and when accessing the server through a web browser. As it stands now, I can find email from a given friend in their dedicated folder, and I can find email to them in the smart folder.
> I should mention that I was really a bit behind the curve in creating folders and rules in Mail, and I’m starting over in MM. For example, I get a lot of solicitations for contributions to various initiatives and political campaigns, and I have a dedicated Politics folder for them. Since there’s always another person running for office, the list of rules gets ever longer. In Mail I reached a point where I couldn’t add any more conditions to the Politics rule, and I created a Politics2 rule.
