           Summary: Lack of overlap of "redirect" filter
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: 3.9.0
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P3
         Component: Filtering
        AssignedTo: users at lists.claws-mail.org
        ReportedBy: lbickley at bickleywest.com

I use "redirect" in filtering to forward priority messages to my Android phone.
Unfortunately, given below:

1) I am composing an email and
2) Claws is receiving emails and
3) Claws is filtering the incoming emails and
4) A filter matches my priority conditions, and redirects the email


Whatever I am composing stops dead - and a window appears showing the redirect
occurring. Only when the redirect is complete can I continue composing my
message. If the redirect is an email with a long attachment - in can take
several seconds before I can continue.

Since redirects can occur at any time - including several while composing a
long email - this can be a frustrating experience.

I haven't looked at the claws code - but if feels like Claws is not
multi-threaded for writes/redirects - which is why the compose window waits
while writes/redirects are taking place.

My sense is that this enhancement would be a worthwhile investment of the Claws
Team's time and energy - and would help Claws become a more efficient and
attractive product.
