Description

I set up a filter with "messages larger than 80KB" -> move to "Inbox\LargeMessages" (i created this folder inside the Inbox), and the filter works when clicking "Get" on the main window toolbar (i.e. the messages DO get in "Inbox\LargeMessages"), but the filter does not work when i press "Get" in the POP3 "Remove mail" window (i.e. the messages all get in "Inbox" instead of "Inbox\LargeMessages"

History

Additionally, i just noticed that messages retrieved from an IMAP account by right-clicking the message header in the remote folder view and then selecting "Move..." or "Copy..." (to some local folder) also don't get filtered (they all end up in the local Inbox folder, disregarding the filters).

Just to clarify something related to the way i was expecting filters to work with IMAP: when copying/moving files from the IMAP inbox to a local folder, i didn't expect the filters to be applied all the time; instead i was expecting them to be applied when copying/moving the remote files into the local INBOX folder (when specifying a local folder different from the INBOX as the copy/move target it [probably] makes more sense not to filter them...)

It's a feature. Filters are not applied to 'POP3 Remote mailbox'.

They are also not applied to IMAP messages when the messages are manually moved to
local inbox folder, because the user explicitly specified the destination.

If you want them to be filtered, select the messages and run
'Tools - Filter selected messages'.
