I have a filter which I know works because it returns the correct results when I press the test search button.
I want to archive these messages and apply a label to them. When I check "Also apply filter to XXX conversations below." They are indeed archived and labeled but the filter does not work on any new mail that comes into my inbox. What could be causing this?

I think I just solved the problem. I noticed the e-mail appearing in my inbox had the little yellow Priority Inbox arrow next to them. You have to go into your "Priority Inbox" settings and disable the "Override filters" option. I did a quick test and that seems to have done the trick. I never use priority inbox anyhow.
