this sounds wonderful. as a die hard mh user, the thing i most need to be
able to do that you have not yet implemented is something like
rmm all +results
for x in inbox outbox todo; do
pick -seq foo -from chneukirchen(_at_)gmail(_dot_)com -and -after '1 jan
refile -link foo -src +inbox +results
I read this as "Gather all mail from me from this year in the folders
inbox, outbox, todo into the folder results".
I don't have refiling/moving/copying yet, but for your purposes, I think
a named sequence (not implemented either) would do it:
, seq results +inbox +outbox +todo from:chneukirchen(_at_)gmail(_dot_)com
Then you can read them with , read results
or show them all at once with , show results
(And if you need a physical directory, , copy results +folder
or directly , copy ... +folder)
I think global sequences are a good idea, since you can easily restrict
them to folders.
and the even simpler:
pick -seq foo -before '1 jan 2011' +outbox
refile foo -src +outbox +outbox-2011
, move +outbox "date<2011-01-01" +outbox-2011
I think I'll implement these commands soon.
if i could do these kinds of things in addition to what your tool already
does, using Maildir or some other format that was more reliable and faster
for the imap server, i could consider switching away from MH.
Whoa. :) Please note it's all alpha software yet.
