Here's how you can set up a filter/rules in Mailbird. Filters are not synced with the server and performed only locally when emails arrive in Mailbird, so until that happens filters will not work in other email clients or on webmail. Nevertheless, after emails arrive in Mailbird, filters are executed and after sync, with the server, all filters actions should be reflected in other clients and webmail as well.
Note: When an email comes in, Mailbird will check what filters match conditions, and then it combines all the actions from all matched filters and executes all of them. Except if there is delete or mark as spam since those override other folder related actions
Below you will find an example showing filter creation:
1. Navigate to Menu -> Settings:
2. Choose the account that you want to set the filter/rules and then click the add button. You can also Choose Unified Accounts, which means the filter will be applied to all accounts in your Mailbird.
3. First, you need to choose the condition.
And then type in the box next to it. Click the "Add condition" to add another one.
4. Choose an action for the filter condition
If you choose to move or copy to folder, pick the folder from the dropdown or add a new one if you want to create a new one. Click "Add action" if you need another action. *the move or copy folder not yet supported in the unified accounts.
5. After you set the conditions and the actions, you will see the result in number 3. Click the save button if you already sure everything already as needed.
The Filters will be applied to incoming messages when Mailbird is running.
If you, however, click on "Save and Run" the filter action will be applied to already receive emails that are still located in your Inbox, and also all future incoming emails.
