Where did you add this rule? Rules are only triggered when a message is 
“added” to a mailbox. For something like this you would need a smart 
mailbox matching read messages and this would then have a rule (with no 
conditions) with the move action. When a message goes from unread to 
read then it's “added” to the smart mailbox by MailMate and this 
triggers the rule.

I hope this helps.
