Thunderbird Message Import & Export

I work on multiple machines in multiple locations...and I make religiously use of message filters since I get on average  about 800 emails per day.....I have always been very good at setting  up message filters as I go on my main Mac Book....but it has always been a pain in the ass that the filters did not follow me to other machines.....I know I could take the time to set up the filters on the IMAP server and then they would follow me....but believe it is not easy to to do and not easy to keep current....and setting up filters in Thunderbird is so easy...click on the incoming email address and say add filter.....

SO I finally broke down and added the cool thunderbird add on for importing AND exporting message filters....what a god send....I highly recommend it to you if you don't have it already.

This is very cool, I'll definitely use next time :) Here is how I used to migrate the filters until now:

This is great. Whenever I use Thunderbird w/o my client-side mail filters I get a boatload of unwanted messages in my Inbox. Thanks for the tip!
