    Default Nice to have: Running Filters Manually

    Using Zimbra 8.0.3 via the Web Client.

    I am using a lot of filters to send incoming emails off into folders etc. automatically. However I also have filters which I have created that are in my inactive column so that I can see the email in my inbox. Then when I want to do a mass cleanup I will manually run these inactive filters over the inbox to act on the emails.

    My beef is that I have to move the inactive filter to the active filter list first before manually running it and then move it back out once it is finished.

    Because I have a lot of filters both active and inactive, and because the default behaviour is to place the moved filter at the bottom of the list it is moved into there is a lot of mouse clicks and scrolling going on to manually run filters.

    What I would see as a solution is to allow the manual run of a filter while it is still in the inactive list. So just select the desired inactive filter, click run, select the folder to run the filter over. DONE.

    Thoughts, comments, ideas?

    Cheers for that... Will do. edit: [ Found this bug that mentions this issue, voted for ]

    Maybe a sticky thread for this forum pointing newbies to the Bugzilla for this sort of thing would be good.
