    Default Broken filtering logic

    I have one single very big complaint about filters.
    I've created a filter for mails to a specific distribution list, but it has little effect.

    For whatever reason, when creating a filter that matches 'To' or 'Cc', it only takes into account the same information you see in the e-mail.

    For example, I have my filter set so that all e-mails addressed to get auto tagged with 'task'. However, when the e-mails come in from a few particular users, the to (or cc) headers have only a name: "Forum System". And so for whatever reason, zimbra doesn't catch, filter, and tag these mails.

    Why don't filters evaluate the entire string? i.e. "Forum System <>" is the actual legal address, so why does the filter routine ignore that fact?

    I don't personally mind that in Zimbra, when I view the message in my box it simply says "Forum System", but the filters should take all information into account. ESPECIALLY always taking the address into accout.

    Would you please file a bug in our bugzilla so that we can track and test this?

    Default Sort Filters

    Is there a way to sort existing filters alphabetically?

    Yes, highlight the filter and use the move up/down button. I guess you mean automatically, the answer is no but have a look in bugzilla and file a request if there isn't one already (vote on it as well).
