This filter item works correctly when run manually. However when triggered by checking mail, the attachment is copied to /trash/files/. The log shows the same report in both cases.

If there are multiple filter items, only the "copy attachment" item fails - the others are triggered correctly by "Checking mail".

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create filter to copy attachments to a folder
2.Run it manually (to check operation.
3.Trigger it with "Checking mail" 

Actual Results:  
Mail is copied to another folder (/trash/files/)

Expected Results:  
Mail should arrive in specified folder (as achieved with manual execution of the filter).

Sorry, I was mistaken and I think you can delete this report. It does work correctly if I select "after classification". However it might help if you add some clarification in Help. And a filter to delete big attachments from the original would be useful.

I am a copywriter and translator. All my jobs arrive as attachments (sometimes large PPTs) for a specific mail account. When they are saved to a special folder, my automatic handling and billing system takes over and tracks the job through to completion.

That's why it's important. Now I can drop Eudora and move everything to Linux.
Thank you!
