I think you're misunderstanding the very basic principle of filters
here. Their main goal is to perform certain actions on new messages. For
example you can use a filter to file all new messages from a certain
person, group, or containing a certain key word in the subject into a
specific folder upon arrival. They are by no means meant to be run
individually for each and every folder to perform actions a scheduler is
supposed to perform.

I use filters exactly this way and they work fine; but what the function

Message-->Apply Filters

do? Applying the chaine of filters again to the actual message?


If you so choose, you can 'force' apply (i guess i should say re-apply
the filters, since they *should* have been applied already per whether
the filter is on incoming or outgoing messages) the filters to any msgs
that you have selected.
