    I am looking for a Apple Mail Script for incoming mail. I'd like the script to filter the mail based on the number of "Recipients". Something like this... If "To:" >5, then move "Message" to "Folder".

    My family is really bad at forwarding those "You have got to see this" emails and the reality is, No I Don't.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Yeah, this would be a great Rule to set up in Mail... just not sure if it's possible.

    Giz,
    The basic "Rules" in the mail application does not appear to be capable of this but you can write a rule that executes an Apple Script. I'm just not smart enough to get one to work.

    I also have to believe that I'm not the only one who gets their inbox flooded with family members sending useless videos etc...

    I'll keep trying to script it and if successful, I'll post it here.
