Concerning the problem itself: Yesterday evening I went a way from this
problem, a bit frustrated and without doing more changes in the filter
or Evo config. Today morning at home I restarted the laptop and now the
filter works as it should and I've played around a bit and now have the
filter copying every incoming mail to a local folder for backup
purpose. What is not working anymore, and I don't have touched the config
with gconf-editor, only later checked it and the logging is still
enabled, but it does not log anymore. All this is a bit crazy, like any
other power- and colour-full user application :-)


The filtering gets logged, but only written to the file when I
terminated the Evo (and its sub processes);

see this: last filtering 16:37:17, last mod of file 19:06 when I've terminated Evo:

$ tail -2 /tmp/evo-filter.log
Applied filter "backupIncoming" to message from Matthias Apitz

Action: Copy to folder email://local local/backupIncoming

$ ls -l /tmp/evo-filter.log 
-rw-r--r--  1 guru  wheel  2304 18 jul 19:06 /tmp/evo-filter.log

a bit problematic when someone is monitoring with 'tail -f' the logfile;
this should be mentioned in the FAQ where the log is explained.

I imagine the logfile uses standard buffered I/O, in which case it
should really be flushed after every new entry. You might want to
register a bug at
