Procmail won't work for me. I am already using procmail to sort
the mails into more than ten folders. The feature I want is when
I explicitly want to save a message, I want a default filename
in ~/Mail. I am reading all the mails from ~/mail. I really
cannot merge these two folders together becoz my ~/Mail is about
180M big, and it just takes too long for mutt to handle it.
