Re: [Evolution] moving folders from local to imap doesn't update filters

I know the following breaks filters.  Delete a destination folder. Recreate it with the same name. The filter 
is still there, i.e. the test portion is there, but there is no destination.

I have done this using web access to the account when there is no easy way to otherwise empty the folder.

I think this is evidence that the filtration back end tracks folders in suc a way that any modifications to 
the folders breaks the filter.

Hi all,

How did you move the folder?

I have a filter that move messages from the inbox to this folder, and
after the moving I see the message that tell me that filters are

But... the filter loose the moving directive.

Do you mean the filter doesn't change, or that changes but the change is

As I have a lot of folders and a lot of filters, there is a way to
preserve the move directive on filters?

AFAIK it should work, i.e. the filters should update automatically. If
it doesn't perhaps a Bugzilla report is in order.
