Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 832366
Evolution filters are not applied automatically to local maildir Inbox
Last modified: 2013-08-01 13:46:31 EDT
Description of problem:
An account is configured with local mail box in maildir format. Message filters are not applied automatically to new mail, even though "apply filters to new messages in INBOX on this server" in the receiving options of the account is checked. Manually doing "Select All", then "Message - APply Filters" works fine.
A second account, using IMAP is also configured. With this account the message filters are applied correctly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time a new mail arrives in the maiildir mail box, filters are not applied automatically
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an account with a local maildir, check "apply filters to new messages in INBOX automatically"
2. Configure filters to be applied
3. Deliver new mail to INBOX which matches an existing filter
Filters are not applied.
Filters should be not applied.
My previous Fedora was F14 where the filters were correctly applied automatically to new messages in maildir INBOX.
Thanks for a bug report. I do not expect this being fedora specific, thus I moved this upstream as . Please see  for any further updates. If possible, please CC yourself there, in case upstream developers will have additional questions.

Hi, I'm using Fedora 18. The filter not working automatically issue still exist!
I noticed this issue has happened from 2007. Anyone has play to solve so really??
According to the upstream bug report the fix landed for 3.6.0, thus is part of Fedora 18. Do you see this for On This Computer (maildir) Inbox only? Does your On This Computer/Inbox folder have a special icon, or a regular folder icon like any other folders? When you select particular messages and then click on menu Message->Apply Filters (Ctrl+Y), will the messages be recognized by the filters? Could you do that all with evolution run from a terminal, and check output there, whether it'll show anything?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
