    “Yahoo Mail says that it can filter my emails based on set rules that I create for it, but it isn’t working.
    After creating a filter with only the “From: ” rule set to the sender of the emails, the mail is not being redirected into the folder I have set in the rule.
    I troubleshooted this with 3 other filters from different senders and none of them work either.”
