You need to create the filters "per account" in order for them to run
automatically (Not "Local Folders"). Select the account you want to
filter from the filter dropdown, then create your filters. Not
intuitive, and annoying if you want to share filter elements among
accounts, but that's the way it is.

Makes sense if you only have a few accounts that need filtering.

OK. I thought that might be it, but hadn't gotten around to trying it. I could uses for that, but, I sure hope they make the filters 'assignable' in future upgrades. Otherwise, that could get to be a pain.

And remember to check the box "Delete from POP server" if you have a limited mailbox size with your ISP.
