Re: [Evolution] Gmail, IMAP and Evolution Filters

I've applied a filter to incoming messages. In Gmail the messages show that there is a label attached to them. However in Evolution the messages still appear in the Inbox rather than the folder name with the Label.

This may not directly answer your question, but I think will provide a

Let gmail do your filtering.  Don't use the client (whether evo or
tbird) to filter gmail.  Gmail's folders are really virtual based on
labels.  It handles filtering more efficiently and in a way that is
compatible with their virtual nature than the client.  It will also save
you bandwidth.

Also, be aware that a mail item in gmail can have multiple labels, and
therefore, appear in multiple folders.  Unless in trash or junk, they
also appear in All Mail.  Keep this in mind when choosing whether to
copy or move a message.
