I have a lot of filters and I need to print them to clean and rearrange them.
I couldn't find any solution searching internet.
Do you think that it is possible?
TIA

Yes, it is. The message filters are stored in the file msgFilterRules.dat in the Thunderbird profile -- http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Thunderbird
Close Thunderbird, open that file in a plain text editor and print the contents from that editor program.

Thank you very much!!
It's a pity that TB doesn't offer a way to get a better structured report about your filters ... but anyway ... you can work!
Best
