Still getting a notification when I use a 'Mark as read' message filter
I have a filter to mark certain messages as read upon arrival (through Tools => Message Filters). This used to work fine until the last major upgrade of Thunderbird. Now the messages do get marked as read, but I am still getting a taskbar notification for a new message, which defeats the purpose of not being alerted to these messages.
Is there a fix or a way around this? I just need 'not to be notified about certain messages', something that used to be achieved by marking them as read automatically, but that doesn't work anymore.
v102.1.2 (64-bit) on Windows 10
Thanks for any help! Gigi

marking a message as read does not do anything to remove it from the new messages you received. It should never have had the effect you are mentioning is my understanding.
It did not 'remove it from the new messages', it marked it is read and hence did not notify (on a taskbar) about a new unread message, since the message is marked read. That was definitely the behavior until the recent major Thunderbird upgrade, I've been using that filter for years.
It doesn't make sense that a message will be marked as read, yet the notification about an unread message will be triggered. Which is the behavior right now, hence it seems like an overlooked bug.
