By connection i mean connection to mail server. Each filter is one connection. Each webmail instance is one connection too (its about imap connections to mail server so css, js etc is not included because it never makes connection to mail server)
1.Mail arrives to mail server
2. sieve server (responsible for managing filters) connects to mail server to check how to handle the email
3. sieve server requests what to do with email (move it forward etc)
4. Rainloop only displays the result
The restriction is on number of filters or webmail tabs open on the same machine. Though the connection made is only for duration of action eg. displaying email or committing any other action (periodic new email check, sending email, etc). Keeping the tab open whe not doing anything does not create permanent connection.

I didn't understand this.
Every filter creates sperate connection to email server. We do have a
limitations of 20 connections per user per IP address.
Does that mean a user cannot create more than 20 filters?
connections means..? Including css, js, html, images? I don't know
about the backend.. Is that about the backend system?
My understanding of how filters work
Mail arrives > Disroot receives it > RainLoop says move it to this
folder because the user has set a filter (works in backend) > Mail is
moved to another folder
