Try this link: 

"In the configuration dialog of the POP account you can enable 
download filtering by checking the Filter messages if they are 
greater than box; once you have done that, you can specify a 
size which is used as a threshold: messages exceeding this size 
will be checked against the filter rules you defined"

It seems that they don't have any effect until this is done.
