    This is specifically for iCloud.com. Is there a way to set a rule that applies to SENT mail? So if I send something to a particular recipient, it will be filed in a particular way? From what I can see, it looks the mail rules are applied as mail is received but I'm hoping I'm wrong. Any ideas?

    What if you set the is from: to your own email?

    Those rules only operate on incoming mail. What you could do is blind copy yourself and have that incoming message filed away by the rules. Would that work for you?

    I was hoping it would just detect email independant from folders, if that's not the case, then the answer is no.

    Only if there is a way to set BCC from iCloud.com. Which i don't see a way to do. Otherwise, yes that would work great.

    I'm seeing this with BCC on icloud.com. There was a CC/BCC line i had to click then it opened to show this with CC and BCC separate.

    Sorry, I mean have it default to always BCC so the rule could be applied. Not add it each time an email was sent. See any way to do that?
