A new message received in an IMAP mailbox with filters that move received messages to other folders will not trigger a notification (either a sound or setting the folder to bold).  Once I mouseclick on the destination folder the message/s immediately show and the folder changes to bold.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up a filter that moves an inbound message in an IMAP account to another folder
2. Send a message 

Expected Results:  
Message notification should trigger and produce expected results

This does NOT happen on my own IMAP server running on Linux (dovecot).

Mark, do you still see this in version 3.1.7

Still present in 3.1.7 here.

Notifications are turned on but they don't trigger an action when mail is processed through a mailbox filter.

However the destination folder does get updated such that it changes to a bold font.

Also, FWIW, I tried using the Mailbox Alert extension.  No change in behaviour.

TB Version 13.0.1

Still does not trigger notification, with and without a filter.

Hi Mark. Does this still happen for you when using current version?

As this issue received first attention about a year after it was first posted, the infrastructure in which it manifested had long since changed.

In the current TB version I'm running: 52.5.2 (32-bit) the issue I reported is not happening.

Therefore this can be closed.
