    One of the available e-mail filter rules is:
    "is an error message"
    What does that mean?

    Another is;
    "Has not been prviously delivered"
    What does that mean?

    I did some testing, and discovered the following:

    "is an error message" seems to be an error message from the mail server, reporting an invalid address, etc.
    It does not sem to be 100% reliable, but pretty close.
    I am not sure if it distinguishes between temporary errors and permanant errors.

    "Has not been previously delivered" seems to refer to processing by previous filters.
    So, if you have two filters, in this order:
    If A, deliver to FolderA.
    If B, delever to FolderB.

    and recieve a message which meets both A and B, the message gets delivered to BOTH FolderA and FolderB. (You end up with two copies.)

    If the second Filter includes "Has not been previously delivered", the message will be delivered only to FolderA.
