Can a message match more than one filter?

In general, a message cannot match more than one filter.  Filters are processed in order, and when a message matches a filter, it takes the action of that filter, and stops.

The one exception to this is filters whose action adds text to the message subject.  If a message matches a subject tagging filter, it will continue running through the rest of the filters.  So, you can use subject tags to trigger the next filter.
