Linux is a great alternative to Windows, but many people feel they don't want to abandon Windows completely. This newly written tutorial will show you how you can share your local mail storage between the two operating systems on a dual boot computer."

This is a great setup, but I'm having problems with the filters. Right now I am using 5 filters successfully but when I add more (say about 12) and reboot to linux (Slackware 9.1, using ReiserFS) a mail message will come in and not be able to find the folder it's supposed to go to, tbird will tell me the filter is disabled. I know this is not a problem with the filtering criteria, messages are very standard, there's some other reason.

The messages that are not being filtered are coming from listserv mailing lists, if that makes a difference. I create all of my filters on the windows side BTW.

Thanks for any advice, I'd love to be able to use this with more filters.
