Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Unite all accounts to use Local Folders 2.Create one or more filters on Local Folders "account" 3.Remove/disable all filters on other accounts 4. D/l new mail - no filtering done Actual Results: No filtering on incoming mail was done Expected Results: Filtering should have been done If I enter the filters' dialog box and select them all (they're all checked Active BTW), and "apply now" them, it works - but that's manual, not automagical.
