Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open mail. 2. Select the "Tools/Message Filters" menu. 3. Highlight all filters with shift-click. 4. Select the "Sent" folder from the "Manually run selected filter(s) on folder:" dropdown list. 5. Select the "Run Now" button. Actual Results: No messages are filtered. Expected Results: All filters should run.
I confirm this bug, occuring when several filters are selected to launch a manual filtering.
You can use the menu item Tools|Run Filters on Selected Folder to accomplish this.
'Tools|Run Filters on Selected Folder' works for 'All Filters' but when I select only a few filters (and not all) I have the same problem (no messages are filtered) and I can't find a workaround for this problem.
I just tried to replicate this problem with 1.6b and found that, with two filters selected, one was run (on the Sent box). Running each filter individually worked.
I'm using 1.7 Beta and have the following issues with Message Filters: - Running Tools->"Run Filters on Folder" has no effect on any of my folders - Running Message Filters->Select one filter then "Run Now" has not effect on the folder - Running Message Filters->Select multiple filters then "Run Now" has not effect on the folder However, When mail is uploaded from IMAP the filters are run successfully on the InBox.
It isn't neccesssary to select several filters, with Mozilla 1.7.2, the bugs are what Greg commented in comment #6 (I add the bug number that have been entered for those problems) - Running Tools->"Run Filters on Folder" has no effect on any of my folders (bug #253368) - Running Message Filters->Select one filter then "Run Now" has not effect on the folder (bug #252041) - Running Message Filters->Select multiple filters then "Run Now" has not effect on the folder - No filtered subfolders (bug #257415) So, with all these problems with filters and IMAP, has somebody at Mozilla had a look at them? ;-)
Michael, this problem is not IMAP-specific, and it is in fact about having multiple filters selected and "Run now." Still a problem with POP in 1.7.2, I just checked. Greg Cook, you might look at the bugs Michael referred to in comment 7.

This was mistakenly posted to bug 201244. There seem to be other reports relavent to this bug, 180239, posted under bug 201244. Under XP, Thunderbird 1.5. By hand, I moved a single email from a Local Folders folder named "!Spam_Delete" to the filters' account's Inbox. The first two filters in the rules check whether the header, "X-tagged-for-folder" is "!Spam" or "!Spam_Delete", respectively. The filters move the email to the Local Folders folder of that name. Here is a copy of the top of the msgFilterRules.dat file: version="8" logging="no" name="Spam" enabled="yes" type="1" action="Move to folder" actionValue="mailbox://nobody@Local%20Folders/%21Spam" condition="OR (\"X-tagged-for-folder\",is,!Spam)" name="Spam_Delete" enabled="yes" type="1" action="Move to folder" actionValue="mailbox://nobody@Local%20Folders/%21Spam_Delete" condition="OR (\"X-tagged-for-folder\",is,!Spam_Delete)" The email had the header, "X-tagged-for-folder: !Spam_Delete" and had been properly routed when it came in (from a POP3 server on localhost). I selected these first two rules and ran them on the Inbox. Nothing happened. Then I selected the second rule and ran it. The email was moved to the proper folder.
