Hi,
I have a POP3 mail and i access it through laptop and through mobile app. I received a mail and I responded to it via mobile (and I sent a copy to my own address to have it also in my laptop). Is there any way to make that copy (which is now also in my inbox) appear as a Reply to the original mail received?

PS ( i know that I can solve that changing config to IMAP, but I frequently get to places with very low coverage and connecting a mailbox through IMAP that will sincro the folders is really a pain)

So, any solution on how to reconfigure a received mail as a sent mail?

See https://web.archive.org/web/20160223134 ... us.html?en . You could manually edit the bitmask in the X-Mozilla-Status header in the message source, if its in a POP account.
