Under the Tool in the main menu select Message Filters. Then,
you will prompted of the list of filtered folders you've
created. You need to double check and uncheck the Manual Run.

I already did all that. Some other messages from the other
lists are still going into the inbox. I don't know what else

subject line is intended to change to avoid confusion of
the thread. About your concern for filtering particular
message into your inbox in Thunderbird. you have to make
sure that your focus is located to the message that is not
open yet, then tab several times till the focus is
directed in the recipient column. Right click then select
Create Filter From. The rest of the filters process is the
same as mentioned below by John. Also, make sure you
uncheck the filter by manually so that it will run
automatically into your corresponding filtered of your

2. Tab to the new button.
3. Fill in whatever rules you want, e.g. from in the
combo box, tell it to match nvda.
4. For the next two combo boxes, it will probably be
easiest to hit alt-down arrow and expand them. Just pick
whatever you like, I move mine to a folder called nvda
that I made.
5. To make a folder, just pick folder from the new menu
in the file menu, do that before you do a filter if you
want to move stuff, because the folder has to exist for
you to pick it. If you want the folder in the main
account, i.e. another folder like inbox, before you make
the folder, highlight your account name with the arrows.
If you want everything under your inbox, so you have to
hit right arrow to expand folders, highlight your inbox.
The difference is that if you highlight the account, you
can down arrow, so you'll get inbox, your folder, sent,
trash, whatever. If you do it highlighting the inbox,
inbox usually starts collapsed and you have to hit right
arrow to expand it, then you hit down arrow to get to
those folders, you'll go through whatever you made, then
you'll get back to sent, trash, whatever.
If that's confusing somehow, feel free to ask questions.

How do you create filters in thunderbird or do you
just delete them after reading or replying to them?
Outlook is ok but It's a bit clunky.
