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 ?

Not to take up bandwidth here, but you can (if you're a unix machine) get a
program called procmail. Its indespensible for anyone who is on more than one
mailing list. It handles the seperation of mail into groups set by you and more.

Do you know where I could find a copy of procmail? ftp?

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
