Re: [Evolution] Applying filters automatically

Do you mean new as in unread, or new as in recent?


I should have added that I'm sure Evolution is the only IMAP client
looking at my mail, yet when I start it up it doesn't apply filters to
the many new messages in my INBOX.

Maybe there is something wrong with the IMAP server I am using such that
it is not marking mails as "\Recent" correctly ?

Again, it only seems to be mails tha arrive while I'm actually connected
to the IMAP server with Evolution that get filtered.

Ah, right, that's probably your problem. The IMAP server will tell
Evolution a messages is "Recent" if this is the first session to be told
about that message. But if you connected earlier from another IMAP
client, then it won't be Recent when Evolution sees it.

The reason we only filter Recent messages is because you might have a
"mark messages from my boss as Important" filter, but if you turn the
flag off by hand, you don't want Evolution to re-mark it next time you
start up. (Likewise for if Evolution filters a message into another
folder, and you decide to move it back to INBOX.)
