You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
Using TB38 (yeah, I know, pretty old).
Using QuickFilters 3.5.
This used to work, but now, right-clicking on a folder and selecting "Run
Filters" does nothing. Selecting "Run Filters on Folder" from the Tools menu

Bugfix, affecting the Inbox only.
There was some additional code for running the filters correctly on non-Inbox
folders but this shouldn't be affected by this bug.
Actually, this was not working for me on a "Local Folders" sub-folder, so it
was more than just the Inbox. Are you able to try it on a local folder?

I thought I had a special bug raised for local folders but I can't find it. In
theory this should work but only if the filters are stored in Local Folders. If
you create filters with the assistant these are usually stored in the account
where they originate from.
That's right, those filters are stored in the Local Folders filter list, not in
an account (I have a msgFilterRules.dat in the Local Folders folder in my
profile.) It used to work that I could right-click one of those folders and run
the filters on it, but it no longer does anything. However, using the Tools
menu "Run Filters on current folder" still works fine.
Fix released 16/06/2018 in version 3.6
