That's why I need several spam folders. Usually I don't receive much
spam, but sometimes one of the providers I use is attacked by addresses
that end with .ru. Then there could be 1000 spam mails each minute. I at
least need a spam folder for averaged spam, to check them against false
positives, a folder for .ru spam and a folder for unknown .ru mails
that aren't flagged as spam. Likely Claws does provide to display only
mails that get a special label, so alternatively not separated folders
are needed, but different labels. For different labels there would be
the same issue, that filters after using the bogofilters plugin only can
be applied manually. It would be nice if the developers could consider
to allow automatically applying the filters after bogofilter run.
