I've added a email rule in iCloud to copy emails with a specific from address to a folder. This is working fine, all new mails are moved to that folder. Is there a way to apply the rule also to mails that I've received before I crated the rule?

Use cmd + A to select all your mails, then right click on it => Apply rules

Or as Matteo point out : cmd+shift+L

    or cmd+shift+L instead of Apply Rules

    I think this is only related to local rules in apple mail and not for rules added to icloud in using a browser.
