Bug ID: 299589
Severity: normal
Version: 4.8.2
Priority: NOR
Assignee: kdepim-bugs@kde.org
Summary: Some filters don't filter incoming messages
automatically, only after manually applying all
filters
Classification: Unclassified
OS: Linux
Reporter: marcus@harrisonland.co.uk
Hardware: Other
Status: UNCONFIRMED
Component: filtering
Product: kmail2

Some filters - in particular those that check the List-Id element - don't
filter automatically on incoming mail. Manually filtering the mail in your
inbox after they have been downloaded results in the mail being correctly
filtered.

This is with IMAP accounts, no other types of account were tested.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Subscribe to a mailing list
2. Create a filter rule by right-clicking on a mailing-list message and
clicking Create Filter --> Filter on Mailing List, or by creating one that
checks the List-Id element manually, and make the filter e.g. add a tag to the
messages, send them to a new folder or some other way to show that the message
has been filtered
3. Wait on new messages from the mailing list
Actual Results:
The messages from the mailing list e.g. remain in your inbox, remain untagged,
or otherwise remain unaltered after the filter should have run

Expected Results:
The messages are filtered and the correct changes are applied to them
