Re: [Evolution] Applying filters automatically.

Remember 'New' != 'Unread' - if something else (like a mail notifier or
another email app) is seeing the email before Evo, then it is no longer
'New'.  This is an IMAP function and nothing to do with Evo - Evo just
asks the IMAP server "What's new?" and acts on the results.

I see you're using a gmail address - if you are downloading your email
from google using IMAP, then I can well imagine that something in the
google system is 'seeing' your email before you do.

OK, maybe I'm missing something obvious, but I think I'm following the
directions correctly and what I want still isn't happening.  Maybe
someone here can point out the issue.  I'm using Evolution 2.12.1 for
Ubuntu 64.

I get a bunch of mail that I want to process automatically.  For
example, I get e-mails informing of every checkin to our SVN
repository, updates on our continuous integration process, and so on.
All of these I want to go to appropriate folders with zero action from
me.  I don't even want to be told that I have mail when I get these
things.  I do this routinely with other e-mail programs.

So, I set up filters to match on the appropriate conditions and send
them to the appropriate folders.  I test the filters using ^Y and yes
they match the messages and does what I want to them.  In the Account
Editor under Receiving options I check "Apply filters to new messages
in INBOX".  

And nothing happens.  They still sit there, placidly filling up my
inbox and requiring me to type ^A^Y  to make them go away.

Am I missing something here?  What should I do to make the filters
trigger on new mail without user intervention?
