I have to revisit this. Specifically the rule not moving the messages to spam. I have repeatedly blocked certain addresses and I have made sure they have gone in the list the "Internal Blocked Senders" list has. I have also moved the rule to the top of the list with priority "1". Yet, the messages are still not moved to spam. My scenario is as follows:
- I funnel my work's e-mails into personal Smartermail server that has my personal e-mails. I use POP retrieval for that.
- I use a rule in the content filtering where if the "To Specific Address" is "firstname.lastname@example.org" then it's sent to a special "Work" folder.
- The rule that does that has priority "2".
- Spam messages that go to "email@example.com" still end up in my "Work" folder even when the sender address is in the blocked list.
The way I see it is that there's two explanations for this:
1) The "Internal Blocked Senders" list is not matching the from address. I have specifically checked that the from address, say "firstname.lastname@example.org" is in the blocked list.
2) The matching continues after matching the "Internal Blocked Senders" and goes to the second rule which lands the spam in my "Work" folder.
In either case, the behavior is kind of unexpected. Any thoughts?
