Apple Mail rules don't work - sometimes

Some of my Mail rules work automatically - some don’t. Those that don’t will respond to ctrl click > apply rules.

Any idea why won’t they work automatically?

Mail rules are processed in the order they appear in your list. I had this problem and discovered that one of my earlier rules had an instruction to “stop processing more rules.” I deleted that and they all worked automatically. See if you have that in one of your rules.

My rules haven’t been processing. I wonder if this is why.

Thanks - due to another even more irritating issue - I can’t check what sounds like a possible solution.
