    I've just switched from Outlook Express to Mozilla Thunderbird. I'm
    having trouble getting the filtering to work. If I choose "Tools..Run
    Filter on Folder", then it does what it's supposed to do (in this case,
    deleting the email). What I don't understand is why I'm getting the
    email in the first place if I've told it to be deleted. Is there an
    option I've missed to automatically apply a filter when receiving email?

    Thanks in advance,
    Dan.

    Is the filter enabled in the list? Is it in the list for the
    folder/inbox where it is received?

    Caveat: Deleting of messages by filters is contraindicated. Better to
    sort/filter to a holding area for review, then delete from there.
