Hi, is this forum the right place for feature requests? :-k
TB's message rules\filters are quite useful for sorting mail and dumping spam, but I wish they were improved.

In my opinion for conditions there should be options to:
- allow searching or sorting them by name
- show their hits number and last hit date (with maybe a clean button to delete obsolete entries in one go)
- allow to ignore case
- (ideally allow using regex)

I thought filtering was case insensitive. I just did a little test with a subject-begins-with manual filter. It added a star to the messages.

The following addon has a "Subject Regex Match" option.

The following addon supports sorting filters alphabetically.

QuickFilters

Thank you, I'll try them.
No addon for "hits number" and "last hit date" I guess tho :\

Sadly, QuickFilters sorts filters alphabetically (kinda useless due to priority), but not the conditions..
