How to create message filter that filters using body content?

Posted

In Linux Mint I used Thunderbird and created message filters that filter messages using body content, since then I've moved to Fedora and then to Ubuntu where Thunderbird doesn't have option to filter messages using body content. How can I get back filtering of messages using body content? I get some automated e-mails some of those I'd like to put in a dedicated folder, some I wish to delete automatically based on content of body.

The Body criterion doesn't appear in the filter dialog if you have the (IMAP) account set to not keep messages on the computer, i.e. headers only are downloaded. The setting is in the Synchronization & Storage section in Account Settings.
