I use 3 different signature and 2 email addresses depending on the folder I'm in. I can do the same for address book and _all_ other settings as well. > Now, the last time I checked mutt it did not do internal filtering.

Welcome to the UNIX-way of doing things: seperate the mailreader from the deliverer in this case. Yes, that does mean you need two configure an extra program, but it will give you much more power such as automatic actions on messages while you're not online. > It also looked like any of the advanced features required rc tweaking instead > of having the ability to do it on the fly internally. Very true. Personally I like it that way, but I'm sure lots of other people would like to do this from within the program. I usually find that an interface to configuring something this powerful/complex either makes the interface very counter-intuitive or very only exposes a very limited set of the options. Wichert.
