[Users] Automatic "Processing" of emails + export/import of rules

I forgot I'd tried using Filtering rules last year and it didn't
seem to work (or I messed up). I have "Filter messages on
receiving" enabled right now, and a filtering rule set up to
route replies from this list to the correct folder. I'll see what
happens as soon as someone replies (to the list or this thread).

Also, is there a way to export processing rules and have them
imported as filtering rules? I'd have to set the account each
filtering rule applies to. I have about over 200 processing rules
across different folders and it'd be a lot of work to convert
all of them manually to filters.

I looked at a few pages (including the one you linked) in the
Claws Mail FAQ but couldn't find the answer to the export/import
question so I'm asking here now.
