I think the rule Jeremy suggested would actually work, because "move"
is a "final action" -- after a "move" action, no more filters are
applied. So a "move" which doesn't actually move may be used to stop
processing and prevent a later rule from moving these messages.

However, there's an explicit action "stop" if that's the way you want
to achieve this; using "stop" would be more explicit, and more robust,
because completely ignoring a move-to-the-same-folder action seems like
a sensible thing to do, and something Claws-Mail might do in a future
version, if it doesn't already.

My 2 cents,
