What does the option "Continue with other rules" do? If I uncheck it at every filtering rule, the checking does not stop at the first matching rule... So it seems to 'continue with other rules' anyway....

What I'm trying to achieve, is that one of my e-mail accounts is not affected by the Spam filter. So I setup a rule that matches the To: field (and this works) and moved that rule to the top of the list. Now I want the filter to stop whenever this rule is matched, and it looks as if the option is there...

Maybe the above option could be renamed "Skip other rules", so it continues by default...?

This option do exactly what it say. Yes in most cases it can be turned off. One sample of using:
You can create rules that mark messages as spam or approved. And want to load all messages less then 10K to see message body. So you can add one rule on the top that find messages less then 10K and loads them and check "Continue with other rules" option. After loding of message Mail Monitor continue filtering.

I hope this is clear description. Let me know if something wrong.

Ehm sorry, I really don't understand what it's actually meant to do, and I don't see any difference with or without the option enabled...

I'm looking for an option under "What to do when a filter matches to conditions" that will "Stop filtering"... This makes it possible to prevent certain rules to be applied when another rule has already been matched...
