    How do I get Apple Mail to apply rules to already-read mail as well? It only applies rules to incoming mail marked Unread.

    I usually read my email on my iPhone first, and then Mail won't apply any of the rules because all the email are coming in marked as already-read.

    Wow, thanks for the quick help. Is there a way to automate this? Otherwise, I will have to go through this process everyday...

    Well, you may be able to write an automator script that does what you want. Then you can schedule a daily iCal event that runs the script.
