Well I know this isn't going to help much but it is possible to write a script
or even a small program that would sort your mail into different folders by
looking for the address of the sender. I suppose you would use something
alongs the lines of 'grep SHADOWTK mail-file'. This would be a solution and
I suspect that some people on the list may do something like this already.
Any of you budding hackers out there already done this and would like to post
their program ?
