I have Thunderbird set up to use IMAP on GMail, and I have a whole slew of filters. I have an Inbox, a folder named "important" and about 30 other folders.
My first filter moves messages from people in my personal address book into this "important" folder. The next 30 move mail from various marketers and mailing lists into inboxes for each. The filters appear to be working correctly, but...
I am getting messages from two people who are not in my personal address book, arriving in the "important" folder, and I can't work out why.
As an experiment I moved them back to the inbox and ran all my filters on the inbox, and this did NOT move them. Conclusion - its not the filter.
So it appears that something other than a filter is placing the mail from these people into my "important" folder. I have checked the set up on my google account and can see nothing that might be causing this.
Has anyone got any suggestions as to what might be causing these messages to be wrongly classified?
