That's because IMAP only allows a single folder to be selected at a

to filter mail in INBOX? It can't.

Why can evo notice that there is new mail in INBOX then at all? Without
looking at it? If it can notice this, than it can also (temporarily)
switch over to INBOX, do the filtering, and switch back to "My Folder".

Because when you hit Send & Receive, it doesn't actually open the INBOX,
it just asks how many unread messages it has - and does this for *all*
of the folders on your server except for the folder you are currently
in. If you ever get a chance to read RFC2060 you'll understand.

If you want filtering to happen as new mail arrives, then you'll have to
do server-side filtering.

I would like to use sieve, but then I think evo should automatically use
sieve for storing it's filter rules or at least there should be some UI
for it. Server side filtering is of course the best option in every

Evolution will eventually support sieve, but seeing as how hardly any
imap implementations actually support sieve, I don't see it as something
important to have asap.
