Re: [Evolution] Multiple filtering nukes messages

Well that seems pretty weird.

BTW the messages are really deleted, they're not just 'not showing up'
or something?

You didn't delete stuff from 'unmatched'?

Has it happened more than once?

I have several filters:

1. Subject contains "Evolution": Move -> Evolution (IMAP); Stop
2. Recipient contains "dev-etrax": Move-> Etrax (Local); Stop Processing
3. SPAM : Recipient do not contain my email addresses (1 IMAP + 1 POP):
Delete; Stop Processing.
4. Recipient contains netbrowser (IMAP account): Assign Color; Stop
Processing. This is the INBOX that got wiped out.
5. Another SPAM targeting my POP account: Sender contains "pymesite":
Delete; Stop Processing.

Filters seem to work randomly. Sometimes they are applied automatically,
sometimes not. Manual application of filters has always worked. They
have never killed needed mails. Until now. I am willing to believe I did
something wrong. I just hope it is not a bug.

    Is that all, what else do your filters do?
