Is there a trick to the option of Run message filter on this folder. I've tried it several times and it doesn't appear to work.

Make certain you enabled the filter. You can also look at the contents of msgFilterRules.dat in your profile. Its fairly self-descriptive, and you might discover you misunderstood how to specify a condition.

I think tanstaafl hit it. Make sure it is enabled (checkmark shows on the right, not just a little dot) and be sure the filter is actually selected (click on it), not just highlighted.
