Formerly in the good old days of Claris emailer and its auto file log, auto filing with a mail action was easy, you could then reply to most messages directly from aliases sitting in the auto file log.

You could duplicate this behavior in other mail clients like Mail by means of tagging and filing a copy of the incoming message, thus permitting to reply from the in box and to then delete all tagged messages.

With iCloud, it appears that this workaround only works when the Mac is online up and running. Some messages get auto filed, some don't and it is hard to understand how and why.

Does anyone here still needs to auto file and yet to reply to these auto filed messages?

Any suggestions?
