I like the idea of unified filters because it simplifies my TB, but
there are some things I can't figure out:
1) Are they actually (preset by the TB authors) saved searches?
2) I have some filters which move messages to various folders. Although
just received they don't show up in the unified "Inbox".
If the answer to (1) is "yes" I assume it's just a matter of
right-clicking on the unified "Inbox" icon, select "Properties" and
click on the "select folders to search:" choose-button where I can add
the folder where those messages are moved to.
If that's the solution I'll have to do that every time I add a new
filter for moving messages away from an account's inbox. Is there a
simpler way, so that all received messages show when I click on the
unified Inbox, or does anyone have a better suggestion?
3) In unified view, why are the individual accounts shown below? As
mentioned above, I like the idea of having a simplified TB, but I'm not
quite there yet. Basically I would like TB to filter things into
separate folders, but on the surface I still want to access all my
messages as if they're all in one place. And I don't need those account
folders -why would I when I have a Unified inbox, outbox and trash?
4) I've noticed that the unified trash and junk folders don't allow me
to empty them as with normal trash (right-clicking on them and selecting
"Empty trash"). Is something wrong with my setup, or is this a
shortcoming in TB? Is there a way to create a unified trash where I can
empty all trash in one go?
5) Why are there both trash and junk folders? I've never quite
understood the account setup "Junk settings" and "global preferences"
and two folders seem to be unnecessary but I suppose there's a purpose
for this. I just want a quick and easy way to review all my spam and
empty it all in one go.
