Mail rule (filter) by moving emails to a folder
A question. Would there be any way to trigger a filter by moving an email to a specific folder?
Assume for example that I want to automatically forward to someone else all the emails that I move to a specific folder. Is this possible in any way?

Not exactly a filter/ rule, but you could use the example of kopano-spamd.py as a starting point: There, the spam-folder is monitored by a daemon for new entries on an event-driven model.
Newly placed items in this folder are processed (here for spam-learning) upon arrival.
Thanks, that would work from the back end, but of course not from the front end unless of course by writing a separate plugin.
Yes, that’s right. Your idea sounds interesting, anyway.
Thinking about it. Perhaps it should be an addition to the normal filter? I.e. the current email filters work by default on the folder “inbox”. Perhaps there could be a place where you create the rules where you can select which folder you want them to work on. I.e. they would integrate in the current Webapp settings.
I am not sure how many people (other than me) would find this useful, though, and not sure how easy this would be to implement.
