Order of operation for mail rules Apps
Reader 'brodie' sent this one in a couple of days ago, and I missed it in the queue...

If you have mail rules which conflict with one another (for example, anything that doesn't contain 'foo@bar.com' in the "To:" field gets moved to a "spam" folder, but you also want to move everything to 'foo@bar.com' into a "pending" folder), then all you need to do is drag the rules into the proper order within mail's rules panel. In this example, you'd drag the "doesn't contain my username" rule to the top, followed by the "move to pending folder" second. This way, your spam would get filtered first, and then remaining mail would get moved to the "pending" folder.

Rules are created and managed in the Mail -> Preferences menu item.
