Description of problem:
I am already create rule for mailing list "freetds@lists.ibiblio.org" which must automatacaly moving messages from inbox folder to FreeTDS folder. But I don't see that this rule works.

Please help me.

Thanks for a bug report. The filters are automatically applied only to newly received messages, not to those already in your Inbox. You can apply filters manually, by invoking Message->Apply Filters (Ctrl+Y), which tries to apply your filters to currently selected messages. I guess that's the step you are missing (or the one not shown in your video). In case the filter will not apply, it can be due to missing headers in the message, thus the condition may fail.

> The filters are automatically applied only to newly received messages

In my case newly received messages still appears in Inbox folder :(

Just in case, could you verify that Edit->Preferences->Mail Accounts-><ews account>->Receiving Options tab->Options section has set
  [x] Apply filters to new messages in Inbox on this server

Thanks for the update. I tested it locally and I can reproduce the issue with your message too. The reason is that the Message list header is not exposed by standard properties, or better it's not used by evolution-ews, thus in time of the message arrival the filtering subsystem doesn't know what mailing the message is from, if any. Let's move with this upstream, as this is not Fedora specific. The corresponding upstream bug report is [1].

By the way, temporary workaround would be to use "Subject contains [freetds]" instead of comparing the Mailing list directly.
