I'm not sure what Eventum version you are using, but if it is 1.3 you can use
the new Workflow API to setup Eventum to do whatever you want when it receives a
new email or note, for instance.

This is what we do in our internal workflow class, method handleNewEmail():

            $staff_emails = Project::getUserEmailAssocList($prj_id, 'active',
            $staff_emails = array_map('strtolower', $staff_emails);

            // change the status of the issue automatically to 'Waiting on
Developer' if a non-staff person is sending this email
            $status_id = Status::getStatusID('Waiting on Developer');
            if ((!empty($status_id)) && ($current_status_id !=
Status::getStatusID('Pending'))) {
                if (!in_array($sender_email, $staff_emails)) {
                    $this->markAsWaitingOnDeveloper($issue_id, $status_id,

This way, if the issue is currently set to _any_ status other than 'Pending', it
will change it to 'Waiting on Developer', which is our way of saying that it
needs attention from a support staff member.

You can use something pretty close to that to setup your auto-status-change

Please let me know if you have any questions.
