Re: [Evolution] Filter question

You are quite a bit confused, there aren't many (if any?) mail clients

using IMAP is useless. If there is a client that does IMAP filtering
without treating IMAP as if it were a POP server, then I'd like to know
which one? I know Balsa, mutt, Netscape, Mozilla, pine, etc don't filter
IMAP mail.

Actually Netscape and Mozilla do filter imap. I use them at work where there's not a chance in hell of getting them to allow procmail rules serverside. I filter the messages off to folders on the same imap server. The filtering goes pretty quickly even when I come back to work after the weekend and several hundred linux-kernel messages have to be filtered. They only filter based on headers, however, and not bodies. Perhaps this is what you meant.

I'll go back to lurking now...
