If I create a rule to move all mail from firstname.lastname@example.org into my "User" folder, will it move all of the mail from email@example.com that's in my Inbox to the same folder as well? Or, will it just move new mail into that folder?
It will just move new e-mails.
There is an option when you set the rule up to run on messages already in the inbox
