I  have checked it and indeed, when opening the IMAP
INBOX folder manually  before automatic message  re-
trieval  the filters do not apply.  Would it be more
reasonable to apply filters to all incoming messages
on IMAP when the message is accessed by Sylpheed for
the very first time to guarrantee that every message
is checked against filters at least once?

It  would  be  still imprefect because different in-
stances of Sylpheed would try  to  filter  the  same
message,  and  even  the  same  instance would do it
again if its cache was cleared, but I think it would
be better than the current behaviour leading to fil-
ters' being ingnored...

Frank, does it answer your question?
