Hello, THUNDERBIRD : Il seems that the number of adresses filtered is limited, because the filter is not working with more than 200 adresses recorded. Please would you inform me if there is any limitation under thunderbird, and in that case, precise the maximum of adresses recordable. THKS

If you create a new address book in Address Book (File/New...), it will appear in the list along with Personal and Collected when you click the star twice (see picture). The 'test' address book contains the contacts that are unwanted, and messages from them are deleted, as in the sample filter (see picture).

I don't know the limit on filtered addresses, but do you have a separate line in the filter for each address? It may be easier to set the filter as From + is in my address book + <choose address book> and create an address book with the relevant contacts. When you receive a message and wish to add the sender to the filter address book, click the star next to the address in the header pane, twice, and select the book.

if i click twice on the star, i will get only two choices : personnel or collected adresses (both are desirable !). my problem is to find a solution to eliminate undesirable adresses in order not to receive any additional mail message from them... thanks for y/first answer
