TB Filters seem applied to ALL oncoming email.

I simply can not get TB's message filter system to function reliably. I must be doing something incorrectly.

There are a few interest groups to which I subscribe. They have email Lists. Some of those are, for example, on yahoogroups. Yahoogroups has one custom header that is "List-ID:" . Sometimes this List-ID works sometimes not.

I also try to use Return-Path, Reply-To, To, cc, From ... sometimes I have tried matching partial Subject lines: contains [CatsNDogs] for example. So I want each incoming Email to go into a single folder which represents its "List" .. the Cat List, the Dog List, the Fishing List, and so on.

Then after all those are tested, "Are you in the Cat List?", then are you in the Dog List .... we get to are you in my Personal-AB of friends (then drop it in "Mine".

Everything else drop into Unknown.

What I get is irregular. I get email dropped into "Mine" because the "From" IS a chap I know. BUT the List-ID indicated it was a LIST email. The return address IS the LIST's yahoogroups email address.

For each LIST, I only select Header lines which contain the respective email-list address. The email must have been selected. Must have. How can the filtering system overlook the chosen header?

I have even gotten down to partial words to make it simple for a lethargic program to find cat in CatsNDog. I have tried Stop-Filter-Execution (have FiltaQuilla as an add-on).

And still, I am left with dozens of genuine List-Email in my personal inbox.

And this error/bug persists from Earlybird and from several versions of thunderbird. I figure I am not making the filters correctly.

An example typical of twenty others: To or cc contains meow copy to Cats on Local Folders

that will work for some and fail for a dozen ,, there is absolutely no pattern as to why it fails.

The filter logs show that TB seems to apply all filters to each new email.

Can this be?

As you have identified each mail is tested against each filter. whichever filter matches the mail first then it will be processed by it, as your action is Move, then the next filter will not execute against it because it is no longer in the folder. Filters are executed in the order they are in the list of filters, 9nence the move up and move down options in the dialog

Thank you Matt! So a "Move" might be wiser? If so then that 'Move' rather makes my need for imap accounts less necessary in that I can't read or re-read an email from another device I own, later on? I was hoping the Filter named "Stop Filter Execution" might allow the "Copy" Action to function. Still, your answer greatly helps me.
