I think that's not possible in JIRA.

There is a related issue in Atlassian's JIRA. Vote it so it raises in popularity. Maybe they will fix it in future.

There is also a related question here

Could you also please look into another issue i raised with the subject line " Macros/Automation in jira mail handler".
