Setting labels for a message

    I've been going through the Api documentation and although I can create and delete labels, and search for messages with a certain label, I can't find a way to set a message to a particular label.

    I notice though, that the GmailAccount method storeFile can set a label - is there a way to do this for a generic message?

    Many thanks,

      you can apply a label like this:

      folder = ga.getMessagesByFolder('inbox')
      for thread in folder:
          if == '110ceb62c421f5e2':
              thread.addLabel("My Own Label")

      i haven't found a way yet to set a label on a message by id only,
      but you also could write an own method, that will do this automatically.
