Need to automate a Thunderbird filter
Posted on 2016-11-04
I can't believe this situation has persisted for years and years: hundreds of postings that the TBird junk service will mark an email as junk but will not move it. The learning system is pretty good at marking something as junk, but not move it. Yes, I have read dozens of postings of how-to, etc, so let's just agree it is broken; sometimes moves junk, most times does not.
So I wrote a filter to look for the Junk flag and move the email. It does that very well. But I have to manually run it when needed; it does not automatically run, though it is set up to. So again, dozens of requests for a utility that will schedule a filter to run; no such animal that I can find.
So the bottom line is I am looking for a scheduler that will allow me to schedule my filter to run every few minutes, or even better: run a set number of seconds after email downloads are complete.
