           Summary: In certain KMail2 setups filters dont get applied
           Product: kmail2
           Version: 2.1.0
          Platform: openSUSE RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: filtering
        AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs at kde.org
        ReportedBy: malte.gell at gmx.de

Version:           2.1.0 (using KDE 4.6.4) 
OS:                Linux

If you have the following setup, KMail2 (and KMail from older KDE 4.6.x tree as
well!) does not apply filter rules: Have several POP3 accounts on your KMail2.
Create an own inbox folder for each POP3 account, this user created inbox can
be anywhere, but you must not use the default inbox folder. Now create a test
filter, e.g. filter for subject line or sender. Now, when you fetch mail, the
filter does not get applied.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Have several POP3 / email accounts. Create some subfolders. In KMail2 chose
these subfolders as inbox folders for your POP3 accounts. Create an incoming
filter, filter for e.g. subject, sender or List-Id. Set the filter to apply it
for each of your POP3 email account and to apply it when fetching mails. Now
fetch email with KMail2. You will see the filters do not get applied
automatically. You still can run them individually and manually when you go to
your user created inbox and apply the filter to each arrived message. This
works, but automatic application of filters does not work if you use user
created subfolders as your own inbox for POP3.

Actual Results:  
Filters do not get applied automatically.

Expected Results:  
KMail2 should apply filters automatically when fetching email, even if you use
your own custom inbox folders for POP3 accounts.

This behaviour is not only seen in KMail2, but also with older KMail versions
from KDE 4.6.x on my machine at least. I regard this serious, because filtering
is a powerful and important tool for daily email usage.
