Procmail ( is good at filtering and copying mail into
folders. You can also generate autoreplies with it. However, I find it a
pain to work with. We may be better off writting a general filter prog
which mail can be piped through. This would be easier as could be called
from scripts and local delivery agents such as procmail.

just make sure of two things:
1) it can work on a text only terminals
2) we con someone into extending mutt (, my mua :-)

I'd really like to be able to send some documents to window uses that they
can't understand for once (I've received too many word documents and I'm
wearing thin).


(ps mua = mail user agent)
