Worksforme using apr9 commercial trunk, mac OS 10.1 I get the main filter dialog after cancel to a rules dialog when accessed vie Message Filters menu. After Cancel to the rules dialog, the user is left with the main filter list dialog there and it is usable. As intended behavior, until you dismiss the filters ui you cannot use the mail window.
I downloaded 2002040908 build, and the problem seems to be fixed. Thus, it appeared around 20020404 or so, was present in 20040407, and fixed after that. The case can be closed.
