Two persons use same e-mail for orders and they get picky about the prices of the orders(they look for bigger ones so they receive more $$ as bonus) and they leave the small orders behind.

I want to be able to split incoming e-mail in two folders - one odd and another even folder . Some sort of 'random' order assignment so they dont leave small orders behind.

I looked everywhere but I couldnt find anything related to this.

Thank you!


Sounds like you have a training problem with your personnel.

Or if these emails already contain a unique number, perhaps one person gets all the odd numbers and the other person gets evens.

  • Any way to number each email in Thunderbird? – an4rei Jun 13 '18 at 21:22
  • Don't they already come in with an order number associated with it? If they don't then use some other field which an be a proxy for flipping a coin - for example person A gets all the orders whose incoming time ends in an odd digit, and person B gets orders for the others, which end in an even digit. For example 1:01 PM would be chosen by person A. – wsmwk Aug 28 '18 at 12:27
