Rules are not applied

Reported by Ingo Lantschner | October 31st, 2018 @ 06:52 AM

After moving my whole data including applications to a new Mac MailMate does not apply the rules anymore. Neither automatically nor if I try to trigger by clicking on Apply rules ... I already tried to recreate the same rule - no way.

Any idea what could causing that? I also upgraded to Mojave during Migration.

    You can try creating a smart mailbox with one or more of the same conditions to make sure that they do match something.

    If you know how to use a Terminal window then you can also debug rules like this:

    defaults write com.freron.MailMate MmDebugRules -bool YES

    And launch MailMate like this:

    • Tag changed from rules to conditions, rules, smartmailbox

    Thanks Benny, I tried the first hint with the smart mailbox. It showed clearly that there were messages matching the criteria: From Address is gitlab@git.lantschner.name

    I then relaxed the criteria in the rules for the inbox to: From Address contains gitlab@git.lantschner.name - and then after Applying the rules the messages were moved as expected.

    So it seems as if the evaluation of the is / like operators are not the same between smart-mailbox conditions and rules?

    All of this does not explain, how this is related to the migration to a new machine (or the update to Mojave). But since it works now, I am happy for the moment.

    Thanks again!
