How can search in my filters to see which ones are sending out messages to my friend? He should only be getting one message but instead the filters are forwarding 4 of the same.

For example is it possible to load the filter db into a spreadsheet and filter on the columns?

I had a look at the article and did not find any helpful tools specific to my query. There may have been at one time, but they will not work on my version.


Do you know the file name that is used to store the filters as I have found a way to export sqlite files to csv. I am hoping that I will be able to apply filters to the csv file using calc.

I am using the Ubuntu 18.04 version of TB.

The file name is right in that article -- msgFilterRules.dat They're account specific so they are located in the \Mail or \IMAPMail sub-directories of each account...and they are basically text files.
