i have imap mail set up of which has subfolders of which require the message filtering rule to be applied

i have enabled the "mail.server.default.applyIncomingFilters" to true

yet this does not work or does not appear to for me as i am told this will filter the rules down to all subfolders?

advise how to set up ("mail.server.default.applyIncomingFilters" to
true) correctly for it to work...

the above only show how to run filters.

i need to know how to set up the filter to to also run on subfolders of the inbox of an imap account. This was supposed to be available by adding mail.server.default.applyIncomingFilters" = true in the config editor.
