    Default run a rule or filter to copy all inbox mail to a folder upon receipt

    I am new to Zimbra and want to run a rule that automatically copies all received mail from the Inbox into another folder (called "All Read Mail").

    Then I can aggressively read/delete/forward mail to keep my Inbox at zero but always have a copy in case I need to retrieve it.

    In the filters, I do not see a COPY function.

    This was something I did in Outlook/Exchange quite easily.

    Am I missing something? Or is there a simple work around anyone knows of?

    What is the point of doing this?

    Then I can aggressively read/delete/forward mail to keep my Inbox at zero but always have a copy in case I need to retrieve it. It may sound strange but I found it to work well to manage a high volume of email.

    Then all you need to do is set the Default Mail Search (in the user preferences) to "is:unread" (for all of your account) or if you want just the mail from your inbox then "in:inbox is:unread" and you will only see unread messages. You can easily see them later by doing a search, no need for fancy filters or anything else.
