Hi :)
Is it possible to set filters to look for items in a subject-line instead of looking at where 
replies might go to?  Messages from the users list always seem to have [libreoffice-users] in the 
subject-line but not always in the same place ...
Regards from
Tom :)

Yesterday, your changes broke my email filter which puts libreoffice
user group messages in a specific folder. But then I changed the filter
from looking at "Reply-To:" to "To:" and thought that would suffice.
Now, this morning I got 7 libreoffice messages in my correct folder via
my filter change, and 4 messages direct from members in my main inbox,
which my filter did not catch.  Your change may make it easy for you,
but it is a nightmare for me.  There is no way I can create filters for
all users who use their address.


In Thunderbird, just use the 'From, To, Cc or Bcc' option...

I make sure the message filter checks if the email address is in any of the options stated above.  
It really works, except when someone sends the reply to the list and to me directly.  At that point 
I get both messages in the LibreOffice folder based on which list it is part of - i.e. this list is 
in the "LibreO - Users Global" folder and the website list uses "LibreO - Website" folder.

I have been using Thunderbird for many years.  The only problem I have is I cannot save the message 
filters.  When I have a system crash [when using Windows] and had to reinstall Windows, I had no 
ability to reload the message filters as I can with the saved emails and address-book.  When I went 
from Windows to Ubuntu for my default system, I had to rebuild the Message Filtering that had 
several years of "growth" that I had to rebuild from scratch.

-- off topic ---

I currently read my emails from only one computer - my Ubuntu 10.04 desktop.  If I need to deal 
with emails on a different computer, I use my domain/email hosting system's web-mail system.  Since 
I use the Ubuntu desktop, a Dell laptop running Ubuntu 12.04/MATE and Vista, HP laptop running 
XP/pro, an Android tablet, a Ubuntu 10.04 desktop attached to my HD-TV set for the types of 
Internet audio/video that my Blu-ray player cannot do, and a few more desktops running Ubuntu or XP 
that are spares or will be given to others who need them and cannot afford to buy one themselves.

With this mix of system being used for various tasks, I would have a mess if I tried to read emails 
on more than one system, even if I could get a sync system to work properly between the various 
Windows and Ubuntu systems.

I currently use a 1 TB and a 2 TB USB external hard drive[s] for backing up my main Ubuntu desktop 
[it has the two drives - 1 TB and 2 TB - installed].  Then I can use these external drives to play 
AVI and MPG/MP4 files on my TV via the Blu-ray player or listen to audio books with the ability to 
deal with the volume and play/pause controls of the Blu-ray player and not having to get up out of 
my comfy chair to do so with my computer.  The down side of this is the USB drives must be Windows 
formatted and it takes a long time to defrag/optimize the 2 TB drive. With 324 GB free space on 
that drive, it has been over 26 hours running the Auslogics Disk Defrag software on a Dell laptop - 
Pentium Dual core CPU T3200 @ 2.00 GHz, 32-bit Vista, with 3 GB of RAM.

I must keep the drives formatted to Windows systems so the Windows computers and the Blu-ray player 
can access them.  But that is a small price to pay for having all my media and data file accessible 
to all my computers and media players that can use an external USB drive.  It is much better than 
having to load up a 32 GB microSD flash card, and use a USB card reader, to share the file[s] 
between devices.  Much slower as well.
