Hi list. I've just started using IMAP from evolution and I'm having some
problems with filters for moving mails. I want to move most of my mails
from the INBOX to a number of different folders using filters, but
evolution won't allow me to create such filters. I can create filters
for moving mails to my local folders, but not to any IMAP folder. There
seems to be no problems with manually moving mails between my IMAP
folders, however, so I don't see why I shouldn't be permitted to do so

Is it a bug or a feature? Is there any workaround? I'm using the latest
Red Carpet snapshot, btw, on a RedHat 7.1 box.

I think the problem is that in IMAP you don't actually ``receive'' messages

I should still be able to manually apply filters on the folder,
shouldn't I?

since they stay on the server, so you can't apply rules to them. The best thing
to do is to use procmail rules to sort them into folders as they are received
by the mail server.

Progmail might be the solution. I used progmail earlier, I've just
gotten used to using evolution filters lately ;)


If you can't dazzle 'em with brilliance, baffle 'em with bullshit.
