I have used programs in MS Windows where I could create a macro by
simply clicking on items and/or entering information. That ability is
awesome; however, I certainly understand why the claws-mail developers
probably do not want to entertain creating that functionality in
their product. It would probably require a great deal of work. I do not
know enough about Python to realistically follow that path; at least
not at present. Thank you very much for your reply though.
