Smart Mailbox based on To-Do's

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

I'm having a problem using the Smart Mailbox feature to automatically house all of my messages that I've turned into To-Do's. Here's what I've done . . .
I set up a Smart Mailbox based on "Message has To-Do's". As emails come in that I need to turn into To-Do's, I set up the To-Do, but the message doesn't automatically move into the new Smart Folder for me, like I thought I would. Is this now how Smart Folders were intended to work? Does anyone know how to accomplish what I'm trying to do? Thanks! BJS

Ahh. Wierd. I would say someone slipped up in the design process - at the very least you would expect them to have the same behaviour, even if it was not the behaviour you want. I would use OS X Feedback to tell Apple about it.
