Email and filters on thunderbird
I seem to be having problems with seeing emails on my BB10 when i am using filters and folders on thunderbird (outlook like). The issue is, unless the email hits the inbox without a filter, i wont see an alert on the bb10. I suppose i can browse each folder to see if there is a new message but i find this counter productive.
Any thoughts on how i can remedy this? I often leave my email client open at work in my office and it filters all my emails for me. I also have my z10 on the go throughout the facility but find i am not getting any emails. Once i return to the desk, i find they are all neatly filtered into their appropriate folders but nothing on the bb.
Please help if someone has a solution!

Sounds like you or your business isn't using BES and IMAP/POP/Web email accounts won't see the emails if they are filtered to different folders. They need to be unfiltered and go right to the inbox
Perhaps i set it up wrong, we are using justhost.com i believe

well beyond my expertise, i know my gf's bb 9900 she has through work, is setup with BES and she gets all of her folders on her phone, I know I don't have that option on Gmail and my Imap POP account. It has to be unfiltered. So i don't think it can be done, but there is a chance it may show up in your HUB inbox and not foldered

I have my Z10 setup as Imap currently but only receive the emails once they hit my INBOX instead of the individual folder it filtered to by thunderbird. Another user suggested i turn off filters and then all emails will come in but is this the only way?
There must be another way as on my older BB it worked "most" of the time haha, now with Z10 it never works.

You can try using this to improve your experience and lettings us know if this fixes it for you: Use the "Edit Folder Settings" button in the settings page for your IMAP account on your BlackBerry Z10 to allow syncing of IMAP folders that are important.
Alternatively, you could use POP with the "leave message on server" turned to ON but this currently does not appear to be configurable, so I wouldn't advise it right now as you may end up with email that's removed from your mailbox and ends up exclusively on your BlackBerry 10 device rather than in your IMAP folders.
I may have come up with a solution but it does not work. In my filters settings, i can setup that the email shows up in inbox, once the email is read to move to the appropriate folder. The only problem now lies with thunderbird only filtering upon new messages and thus with the delay on BB opening up emails and syncing back to the server, it fails to work.
Thunderbird only filters for that short little bit as the message comes in.
I have just tried what you mentioned, it works and its great but there is a large delay in emails. For example, by the time it hits my inbox, its another 5 min before its recognized and put on my blackberry. If the emails just goto inbox, its almost instant.

In addition to leave-on-server POP integration possibly being an option in the future, another alternative would be to switch to a quasi-IMAP backend that allows for Gmail-style "labels." This would let Thunderbird "copy" messages into folders but still leave them in your inbox, so you can see them in the inbox folder on your BlackBerry 10 device.

Hi, I have been following this post with interest. Apologies for the semi-hijack. Our IT dept is switching us from Outlook to Thunderbird, and they have email done, but are having problems with the calendar function sync.
OP, do you use Thunderbird calendar? If so, how is it working with your Z10. I have been holding off buying one until I can get this clarified. I am also very non-tech savvy, lol

Thunderbird's calender program is called Lightning. There is a 'add-on' which creates a link between the calender Lightning and the online google calendar. I believe the add-on is called 'provider for google calendar'. On the Z10 I created a calender account which also links to google calendars. Under the account settings in the Z10 you can then change the default calendar to the google calendar.
