Filter with non-ascii name doesn't work even though the data entered for the filter is us-ascii Steps to reproduce: -name filter "fíltér" and set the way that it'll place all incoming messages with "subject" in the Subject field to folder named "Folder"; -send message and see what happens: //message would be placed into your Inbox (same results with non-ascii data in the Subject field, the only scenario filter is working is with ascii filter's name and ascii data in the Subject field
can you attach the rules.dat that was created?
Reassign to alec.

I don't care about screenshots, please attach the rules.dat file that is in the server directory for the server you're editing filters for.

as there is no obvious reason to the user why this would fail and it will appear like filters themselves just aren't working, I'm nominating this for nsbeta2. I haven't investigated the root cause of this yet.

thanks marina Where is the web page that lists how to do Japanese Input on mozilla? I know I have the right software installed, but I've forgotten how to actually do it.
I do not know about the page but you should be able to copy/paste text from Japanese pages like Netscapce JA (home.netscape.com/ja).
ok, it looks like the problem is that it thinks the non-ascii filter is not enabled, even though it is... the enabled="yes" line appears just after the filter name, so I'm wondering if it's somehow interfering.
ok, I've got the fix. I really wish I understood why this was happening, but basically it looks like we were never explicitly enabling the filter! And somehow, if the filter didn't have 7-bit data, it would enable the filter.
Whiteboard: [nsbeta2+] [6/22] → [nsbeta2+] [6/22] Fix in hand
fix checked in.
