Re: [Evolution] Applying filters automatically.

And we haven't even touched on the issue of multiple clients for the
same server/account (say you read your mail from home and also from
work), or what happens if your local cache is lost or corrupted.

And that's the killer for me.  I have 3 Evo clients I use regularly
(work, home, laptop) and a plethora of other things that I use when
necessary (Thunderbird on XP, webmail, outlook occasionally).   Two of
my Evo clients have full filtering setup, one has partial filtering, the
other clients obviously don't.  It would be a real pain if my Evo
instances filtered things that each one hadn't seen before rather than
just 'new' mail.  The only way I can see it happening is if Evo puts a
custom flag into the mail saying 'this mail has been filtered by Evo
already' - but that breaks my two-tier filtering: minimal on some
clients with full filtering on one.

I may be peculiar in my setup, but I would be mightily peeved if Evo was
'broken' to mimic what other mail clients do!

BUT - I do think it needs to be sorted out - I regularly answer this
same question on the list and it is clearly not intuitive to people.  It
may be an issue with particular IMAP clients or particular combinations
of setups, but it does need to be documented.
