"run message filters" not working
I have just set up my first message filters after using Thunderbird for years. They don't work though. The log is empty and no filtering occurs. The filter is active (checked). The msgFilterRules.dat file (anonymised) is:
version="9" logging="yes" name="job auto emails" enabled="yes" type="17" action="Move to folder" actionValue="imap://robinXXXX@imap.1und1.de/job auto emails" condition="AND (from,is,noreply@XXXX.com) AND (from,is,XXXX@XXXXmail.com) AND (from,is,alert@XXXX.com)"
I have restarted Thunderbird - no difference. Any ideas?
You defined three AND conditions, so all of them must match for the filter to trigger. That won't work for an email with only one sender address. Try OR instead.Read this answer in context 1

Thanks that works. It's odd because it didn't work when I entered the first condition and then I added more.
