The same filter with 'Contains' does work. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a filter with 'Subject' 'Begins With' field text 'Test', and any action (e.g. Delete). 2. Ensure it is enabled. 3. Send a message to yourself matching the filter, e.g. 'Testing e-mail' as the subject. Actual Results: No action is taken; it's as if the rule is being ignored or the pattern is not matching. Expected Results: Should have taken the action defined in the filter rule.

Heh. One of the reasons I was not using seamonkey mail fulltime is that most of my filters are 'begins with'. I just figured all this time that all filters were broken, so I continued to use 4.x to get the right folder sorting. (Now, if only the ability to match on 'x-resent-from', etc. had not been cut).
