Filters - how do I get them to work ? Empty Filters - how do I get them to work ?

Fri Jul 15, 2022 12:11 am
1) Disappointing is the Filter import function - it produces no useful filters

2) After I define a filter new - as described under the Filter section of the helpfile - I can hit the "Apply Filter" button, but the further action "all applicable" is greyed out, and no filter action is applied.
I tried this for a few mail filters, always the same result - what is the secret to make it work ?

I assume you imported the accounts and contacts before you imported the filters.

Open the Filters.xml file, highlight, copy, and paste the contents between the "slash code" delimiters.  The Filters.xml file is located in the Pandora/Mail directory.

The "slash code" delimiter is the 13th icon on the Post A Reply screen.  Hover the mouse pointer over each icon until you find the right one.

Perhaps having new eyes might help spot the problems.

Filters - how do I get them to work ? Empty No Filters.xml File ....

Tue Jul 19, 2022 7:20 pm
Yes, I imported accounts and contacts before importing the filters fom Eudora.

I looked now for the Filters.xml file on my Pandora mail directory - I could not find this file in this directory !

But the handful of newly entered filters I made must be stored somewhere, because Pandora can list them. But they don't work - i.e. they do not make the "move action to the specified mailfolder".

At the top of the main Pandora window, left+click on the first menu item Session.
A window will open and left+click on the first item Information.
A window will open titled Session Information.
The first item in the list is the User Data Folder: which is the path to the folder where Pandora keeps all user files.
The Filters.xml file will be found in this location.
Open the Filters.xml file, copy and paste all the filters between Code operatives.

After PC+Pandora restart, Filters.xml file now visible, and opened.

Which sequences should I copy where to make the filters work ?

Right now, let's see what the filters look like.  Open the Filters.xml file, select all, copy, and paste the file  here in the forum between the CODE tags.I need to see the whole file, first line to last line.
