I was away for holidays and, I was working on a mail client
with programmable filters AND simple filters, using:

The PhilB GUI looks good, I can send Gabriele Santilli's
filter libraries and my actually unfinished code to be used.
Everything is designed with the goal of keeping different tasks in
different modules, sharing the libraries. I have a mail/news download
script, an attachment extractor script and some samples to handle the
My original idea was to create a tool to archive and keep separate
office mail from different customers to easily find information about
the customer requests, bug reports, feedback...
Everything can be periodically saved on a CD and is still browsable.
The messages are saved in a "dated" path to track mail received in
a time (very useful for my job):
this is easily adjustable but I think it's better to keep the feature
using a flag in the options.
Messages from mailing lists are kept in a separate path
while indexes of the received messages are written in the "dated" path
From work, due to the proxy, I cannot upload the files or use cvs
(if the project goes on sourceforge), I must send zipped scripts as
attachment. Let me know if you are interested.
I will read email until 18:00 (CET) then I will read it again on
