I am part of an email list in which many emails come in everyday. That is why I created a sub-folder in Thunderbird for them, and created a manual filter so that all emails with the email-list's address as addressee are redirected to that sub-folder. I do want to be able to receive all the emails that go to that email list, just in this separate folder, so that it doesn't crowd out my other emails. I set the settings to "filter before Junk classification" and I also put that filter on top of all the filters.
I just realized that many many of the emails to that email list landed in the spam folder instead. The addressee is exactly as stated in my manual filter. It is explicitly set to FIRST go through my manual filter before they can be classified as spam. If Thunderbird did what it says it does, none of these emails should land in the spam folder, because filtered out by my manual filter before.
Does anyone know why this happens, and how to prevent it?
