Editing Filters Breaks the Filtering Rule

Post by sl-jasonr » Mon Oct 21, 2019 9:15 pm

MailEnable 10.27 Enterprise:

- Through webmail, create a mailbox filter. Sent any description and any criteria. Set the filter action to "Move message to folder...", and a Directory from the drop-down (I used one called "TestFolder"). Save the filter rule.

- Edit the filter rule you just created. Make no changes and click the "Save" button again.

- Refresh your browser page (F5)

If you edit the rule again, the directory has changed from "/TestFolder" to "[SMTP:/TestFolder]". At this point, the rule is non-functional. The only way to fix it is to delete it and create it from scratch.

Thanks I was able to emulate the problem and have raised an issue in our register to be addressed in the next minor release.
