Is there a way to automatically create a label in Gmail once you send it, which could also create the label on the receiving side of the email?

I want to have labels automatically generated on both my end and the recipient's. Is that possible?

Or maybe create a unique ID to keep track of that email sent history?


On your end: Gmail does not support filtering or automatic actions on messages you send. You must label the conversation manually after you send the email.

On the other end: You want to "activate the label on the receiving side of the email"? You want control over someone else's mailbox? I don't think so.

  • Well the only reason I want to have control over the labels is to keep certain activities or conversations history together and not separate. This is basically a design idea I had for keeping track of CRM activities. – Novazero May 20 '11 at 21:01
  • @Novazero labels are indeed a way to group messages, but I don't see how auto setting them up on sent messages could help you to achieve this. – cregox May 21 '11 at 14:16
  • This did not answer the person's question, they were asking for an alternative to creating folders for example in windows, which allows users to send organized information! – user24834 Sep 24 '12 at 17:30
