As the Message filter cannot Filter Essages by already assigned tags, it is very dificult/tedious to filter messages that have NOT been filtered according to other rules. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open Tools/Filter/New 2.Click on the "Subject" Categoryselector. 3.You to not see the Tags. Actual Results: You to not see the Tags. Expected Results: You should be seeing a Selector for Tags.
Tag is saved in X-Mozilla-Keys: header, when local mail folder. See message source via View/Message Source. (compact folder may be required to see X-Mozilla-Keys: physically in source) So, you can already filter with Tag data by; 1. Add X-Mozilla-Keys via Customize 2. Filter rule such as "If X-Mozilla-Keys contains Tag-001, ..." I'm sorry but I don't know whether it works or not during download when next rules(flag like use of tag you are wanting) : 1. Mail is downloaded 2. Rule-X : If some conditions, Add Tag-001 3. Rule-Y defined after Rule-X : If X-Mozilla-Keys contains Tag-001, ... I don't know when X-Mozilla-Keys: header is physically added while downloading / filtering. But, Tag data is kept in ".msf" at step-2, so I expect step-3 works, I don't know works or not though. Sorry but I don't know about IMAP case too.
