The filters I find dont work that great..
lets say I make a Filter, that says If Reciepent = firstname.lastname@example.org
move to email@example.com
folder.. for the most part it works..
however Spam, listservs and other lists arent marked to: firstname.lastname@example.org
they could be marked email@example.com
they just go into the inbox..
I Could chase all the various names, but there will be too many...
Heres an example:
lets say I have 5 pop3 accounts. I then (in outlook express) setup 5 rules.
If Mail From Account firstname.lastname@example.org
move to Domain1 Folder
If Mail From Account email@example.com
move to Domain2 Folder
If Mail From Account firstname.lastname@example.org
move to Domain3 Folder
If Mail From Account email@example.com
move to Domain4 Folder
If Mail From Account firstname.lastname@example.org
move to Domain5 Folder
Some of these, like domain3.com I have a catch all going there, so I could get 30 different to:'s per day..
Perhaps filters are the way to go, I just find that they only work if you are directly in the to:
// This is an exact rule from my outlook express client //
Apply this rule after the message arrives
Where the message is from the *@ineedfreebies.com account
Move it to the *@Ineedfreebies.com folder
The point here is that no mater who its to: if it comes through on that account it will go into the proper folder and not the root inbox
