Add a context menu item, when right clicking on a message, to create *NEW* rules based on meta-data (Sender info, message body...) of selected email.
Yes, please. In addition, it would be great if I could drag an email into a folder and get a popup asking if I want to create a rule for all future messages from that sender. This would make rule creation far easier and faster.

Agreed that this feature is critical.
I am new to Airmail and very surprised this is not available. At the same time, a bit disappointed that I am not finding a solution. I use outlook at work and it is very simple to create a new rule on the email that I currently have in front of me.

This will be EXTREMELY helpful. Right now rules are really not very user-friendly

Rather than creating a new suggestion which I was going to call Exchange Server rules (creation/edit), I'd like to add to this request that Airmail extends its own rules functionality to support Exchange server-side rules. These are extra helpful because they happen at the server before you even read your email, meaning that if you move between devices the rule are always consistently applied. Obviously Outlook has this feature (Mac/PC), as does the Outlook webapp, but I'm not aware of another 3rd party app that does so it would be pretty great.
this thread is a year old. What happened to improving Airmail? hmm
This is a GREAT suggestion!
My standard for comparison in many things is EUDORA, which I used for like 20 years without ANY glitched no matter how many versions of Mac OS came through. After OS 9.3 it was no longer supported. :o(
Eudora had this feature and it was SO convenient!
I could create auto-fill templates, which appeared after Right click on the non-open message in the mailbox window.
I picked what tempate I wanted to use and autofill did the work. I just checked it over and hit "apply".
Thanks, in advance.
I'll give an example of usage: I get server log messages that I need to keep around, but I generally don't want to see them in my inbox. They can go straight to the archive. It would be great to right-click on a message and use that as a seed to start a new filtering rule: auto-match the from/to/subject of the right-clicked message to make it faster to create new rules. I'm doing this every time I've got a new server I need to track, so it's an ongoing activity.

Make it possible for emails to go into individual named mail boxes, as can be done on Apple Mail.
A follow on to my previous comment. The "Untitled-1.jpg" menu suggestion to add RULES is a perfect place to put it. Just my opinion.
All professional email programs need Rules/Filters. To make "NEW" rules so user can automatically send all future emails for any selected sender to any selected/created folder including trash, should be as easy as click chosen email, decide what boolean operators and what destination.

This idea should be very useful when we have tons of messages in the inbox folder.
I really need it!!! ;)
The goal is to arrange quickly as possible all incoming emails and it should be a way to go to the "google inbox" concept but with rules known and decided by user.
About the UX, when the rule is created, it should be very efficient to create also the destination folder...
Waiting for this update...
