Interesting. I have the exact *opposite* problem, or at least I used to. I 
know that in the filter rules, there is an "advanced" tab for each separate 
filter. If, somehow, the system got set up to default to "from all but 
online IMAP accounts" that might explain the observed behavior. The OP 
should check their filter rules and verify that the "radio button" is not 
set to "from all but online IMAP accounts."

I apologize if this has already been covered, I haven't been following this 
thread closely.
