Example :
You get a lot of mail from a particular customer for instance for a specific projet.
You decide to create a folder and a mail rule to deliver mails from your customer's domain into this folder.
Wanted :
It should be possible to apply this new rule on mails existing before creation of the rule and thus gather all the mails from this customer into your newly created folder.

Even without using this feature daily in Gmail....this functionality should be in there since the inception of personal mail rules. GiddeUp!

This has been part of Outlook for years. "Create Quickrule" should have it. It's actually not impossible to create separately.

It'd also be a great option to apply the rule to Inbox on any modified rule.
