No - how is Opera supposed to determine in which order the
filters should operate.
Opera can learn from other software like Thunderbird/ Netscape/
Mozilla how a order can be defined in which the filters should
In those software, the sequence in which the filter are listed
is the sequence in which they operate. And they give the option
of moving some particular filter up and down in the sequence.
Such a system (I know what you mean, I used The Bat before I switched to
Opera, and it had great filters) is only necessary if a message can only
end up in one filter. That filter had better be the one were you first
look for a specific message, so order is important. But with filters as
dynamic views into a single message database, where messages can turn up
in every view where they are relevant, the point is moot.
There are some important issues I'd like to see improved in Opera's
filters, but this is not one of them.
