Using feb22 commercial trunk build Seen with linux and win98, assume mac, too A filter whose criteria is based on header criteria To:, Cc:, To or Cc: will fail if the matching string appears in any but the first header of that type. Filter is not using "begins with", but will match a partial string in the said header field as long as it is within the first address of the To: or CC: header line when multiple addressees appear in that header line. If the second To: or second Cc: address is that which matches, the filter will not fire. Seen on IMAP accounts, haven't tried POP yet. Steps: 1. Open mail to IMAP account, login. 2. Edit|Message Filters. Select the IMAP account and set up a simple filter like this: Criteria -- To: contains firstname.lastname@example.org Action -- set priority to High (I tried both priority and MoveToFolder filters, didn't matter) Confirm OK to filter addition, confirm OK out of main filter dialog. 3. Send the IMAP account a message addressed with llarue as 2nd To addressee: To: email@example.com To: firstname.lastname@example.org 4. Get that message -- filter doesn't fire. 5. Send the IMAP account a message addressed with llarue as the 1st of 2 To addressees: To: email@example.com To: firstname.lastname@example.org 6. Get that message -- filter fires. 7. Repeat this a few times, notice it behaves same each time. Note: Same thing happens choosing criteria CC: or To or Cc:
Priority: -- → P1

Applies to POP, too.

marking nsbeta1+ and moving to mozilla0.9. cc'ing bienvenu.
Target Milestone: --- → mozilla0.9
I'd generate a protocol log and see if we're actually getting told about the multiple to: addresses - my guess is not.
Laurel, is this still happening to you? I tried this with 2001032104 on Win2000 and it seems to be working.
This is generally working with mar28 commercial build. Will mark worksforme.
