Procmail is a Mail Delivery Agent (MDA). Once the mail is in your
inbox(es), its job is done. Maildrop is another MDA, but with more
readable syntax. Mutt allows you to define save-hooks and
fcc-save-hooks to supply a default save directory. It is very
configurable, but not necessarily the most intuitive setup and
configuration. I use it. It is dependable and reliable.

Look at xbuffy for something to tell you which mailboxes you have new
mail in. I have 20 incoming mailboxes. Coolmail is on the 7.1 CDs. I
haven't used it, but I expect will do the job too.

> Ok here is what I understand if I use procmail it will deliver to mail to the appropriate folders based on the filtering rules.
> That means I would have to go over all of my folders to see if I have received email. Including the business mails I receive my daily email rate is somewhere between 500-750 depending the day. Especially the business mails I do not want to skip since I may have headaches later. So I would like to see them in one folder and once I have a look at them they should be delivered to the appropriate folders for archiveing purposes.
> So will procmail do this if the answer is yes then I am ready to go and play with it and of course call for help
