As of the last few days, with no action or changes from me, rules no longer work to move emails out of my inbox. When executing rules (manually or automatically) that include a “Move to folder” function, it just marks the rules as belonging to that folder without actually moving them, same as one might by using the “Mark” dropdown while the email is selected. All other elements of the rules (mark as read, skip notification, etc.) function as normal. I must move the emails myself, dragging/dropping.
There are some issues with Rules in recent releases, so if this issue began after updating eM Client, you can uninstall it then download and install 7.2.35595 from the Release History. See if that makes any difference.
