User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8.1.3) Gecko/20070309 Firefox/2.0.0.3
Build Identifier: 1.5.0.10


I entered a filter for the existence of the string "?????" in the subject and ran it, only to have everything in my inbox promptly deleted.

This happened in one IMAP account with a folder having around fifty or seventy items, but not in the next two (which I attempted so that I could verify the problem).

Reproducible: Couldn't Reproduce

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Added a filter for "?????" contained in the subject.
2. Actions to take are: 1) Set junk status to "junk", 2) Delete message.
3. Run filter.
Actual Results:  
Deleted everything in folder, and then compacted.

Expected Results:  
Matching messages deleted, but everything else left alone.

interesting that reporter tried multiple folders, but looks like reporter email address is dead "mail.blitzeclipse.com.: No route to host".
