Other thoughts:

What OSes are you running? Are they all uptodate, patched etc?

You mentioned an "HTPC" - what is that, and what does it run?

Maybe you have a higher-priority rule that accepts such mails?

If you have no other sieve rules, maybe you miscoded the one you did set up.

You mention that you use "mailbird" as an email client.
