[sylpheed:34348] Mail filtering when opening a folder

The following problem is bugging me since long time:
I have an IMAP account and several filtering rules, which apply to mails
belonging to this account. The thing that annoys me is that sylpheed only
applies the filters to new messages, when I explicitly use the "receive
messages" function.
However, if I just open the IMAP folder, the new messages are not filtered, but
stay in the root folder. I have to apply the filtering rule "manually" to this
folder, to get the new messages filtered.

In my opinion, a better behaviour would be to apply the filtering rules to
new messages in a folder, whenever this folder is opened.

Are there other opinions on this? Or did I miss something?

Thanks and best regards.
