Thanks - will investigate. I was under the impression it does not save
copy of any email i sent. I was thinking more in terms of auto-deleting
mails sent specifically to mailing lists, i am subscribed to - some
sort of hook. Or more sophisticatedly, deleting the sent-mail copy,
once the mailing list copy arrives. One thing i can think of is to
save the "sent-mail" copy in the debian-user folder and write a script
to do a periodic 'D ~='. Will try it sometime, unless somebody has a
better suggestion.
