I like the idea, although I do not know how to implement it. I am
getting swamped by messages. I scan them all because just a few are
VERY helpful, but most are beyond my ability to understand at this
With tags, I could transfer my rebol-list subscription to my home POP
account instead of my office account, and write a REBOL script to:
* Scan all email messages.
* Download any with REBOL in the subject, and leave the rest on the POP
site for my spouse.
* Scan for the tag.
* Look for a disk file called something like REBOLMAIL.[tag].
* Append the message to the end of the file.
* Examine the latest update dates of all my REBOLMAIL files.
* Send me a note of any that have changed on that day.
Then I could read the changed files. Maybe when I appended the day's
mail I could append a marker showing the start of the day's entries, and
just use VIM to read the file. If I wanted to respond, I could copy and
paste, into the response, the segment of text representing that message
Hmm, that does sound like a lot of work. Still, tags would help in
scanning by eye also. The script could be "left as an exercise for the
reader," or posted in the library.
