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 ...

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.

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
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
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.
