Hi, I'm not able to create a filter that do this.
I have a GROUP (named KnownSource) containing all email addresses I know in a list like alberto@netzoo.biz, alberto@libero.it and so on.
I wanna create a filter that separate mail.
Mail received from contacts that i DON'T have in the group KnownSource will be moved in a folder called UnknownSource

Thanks

I've never thought of doing that, but sure it sounds like a nice idea. I'll see what I can do.

Fixed
In order to filter mail NOT coming from a known email address do this
create filter and insert
FIELD: mail.From.Groups
NOT Checked Contains
Value: group name containing all your known mail addresses

Action do what you want

I'm sorry, but I can't deal with InScribe filtering system for 3 hours, feeling dumb myself :)
I have 2 acccounts (lets say 1@qwerty.ru and 2@qwerty.ru) and I want to have "Inbox-Sent-Known"-structure for each account. Trash and other folders are universal. That was easy - creating 2 "main" folders (aka "accounts") with subfolders (Inbox, Sent, Known). My requests are:

1) Incoming mail filtering
a) mail from unknown senders in appropriate Inbox (by account);
b) mail from senders, who are in my Adress Book (or Contacts folder, am I right?) in Known folder (also separate for each account).

2) Sent mail filtering
- in separate Sent-folder for each account.

I'll try to explain what have I already done.. Let's try to do it for one account (1@qwerty.ru). My thoughts are:
1)
a) That's obvious: on Recieve tab in Account options we just set "Destination folder".

b) "Known"-filter
As I have all my contacts in a Contacts folder, I use next filter:

> Conditions
> Field: mail.To
> [contains]
> Value: 1@qwerty.ru
>
> AND
>
> Field: mail.From
> [=]
> Value: /Contacts
>
> Actions
> Action: Move to folder
> Argument: /1@qwerty.ru/Known

Doesn't work..

2) Sent-filter
For the 1st account (1@qwerty.ru):

> Conditions
> Field: mail.From
> [=]
> Value: 1@qwerty.ru
>
> Actions
> Action: Move to folder
> Argument: /1@qwerty.ru/Sent

Field: mail.From
[=]
Value: /Contacts


is a bit wrong. What you want I think is:

Field: mail.From.Contact.Folder
[Starts With]
/Contacts

Thank you, fret! That's exactly what I wanted to do.
But I'm a bit cinfused: that's not demonstrably at all.. Where can I read about composing such complex expressions?

But what about Sent filtering? I've noticed, that filter works, but only manually. When I select common Sent folder and apply "Filter the current folder", messages are going in the right way, but when I just send a letter, nothin happens and all the letters are put into common Sent folder.
Sorry for such complicated explanation :)

For composing the field names use the Scribe DOM:

I still need to make the filtering work for outgoing mail as well. This is just on the todo list.
