Hi Harshal and Lasar;
Thanks very much for your comments. You both suggest that I sort the
messages at the email stage, then let MhonArc do the rest, so I suppose

folder as a single file.
I would actually use a script to receive all the email for the 'blog'
address and then place the incoming email in different dirs based on
The remaining steps become easier since each blog has its own mail
store. You can run mhonarc to check all the maildirs and update
Either of these methods will work. If updating-by-email is preferable
go with MhonArc. If you prefer updating-through-GUI, MT is the way.
