                 Receiver2Folder 1.1
                 ===================

Does it get on your nervs to find all that bug reports and admin
mails intermixed with our private ones? Or to check some different
user accounts to avoid this intermix?

Well, there is a solution: Receiver2Folder!

Receiver2Folder sorts you mail into different folders depending on
the alias it has been addressed to. So all stuff for 'postmaster' and
'root' may come into the 'Admin-Stuff'-folder and mail for 'bugs'
into 'Oh no, Bugs!' -- assuming postmaster, root and bugs are aliases
for your account.

Further on, you no longer need different users (to stay at the
example) 'bugs' and 'root' (alias 'postmaster). You now can user ONE
account, so there's no need for 'account jumping' to see all your new
mail.


How does it work?
-----------------

Template:   NAME/A,PASSWORD/A,SERVER/K,PostPone/S

This first three are the standard UMS parameters, which should be
known :-) PostPone will make Receiver2Folder to mark all processed
messages 'postponed' (see below).

Receiver2Folder has to be run on the users accont ho's mail should be
sorted. It checks a UMS-Config variable "Receiver2Folder.Folderlist"
to find out which aliases to sort. This variable should be defined
per user, even if Receiver2folder does not care whether it's defined
local or global.

The config variable is a list, where each entry consists of a
foldername and a pattern sepereted by a colon. All mails addressed to
an alias matching the pattern are moved into the given folder.

Example:

 Receiver2Folder.Folderlist = "
    "Postmaster,  Post(ma|ham)ster
     Root,        (root|sysop|mail)
     News,        news#?
     Bugs,        bugs
     Bugs,        receiver2folder-bugs
     Garbage,     sysop"

     ^-- folder   ^-- pattern

The lines are processed one after another, so the first matching
pattern determines the folder. So in our example nothing will be
sorted into 'Garbage', since mail for 'sysop' is already matched
in the second line and thus moved into folder 'Root'.

A folder name may occur several times which may usefull to keep the
overlook if the pattern becomes to complicated.

Receiver2Folder does only check unread, not-postponed mail with no
folder set. Out of this messages only those matching at least one of
patterns will be processed.


NOTE:  Usage in conjunction with mlist2folder.rexx

  If you are running 'mlist2folder.rexx' (short: ml2f) with the
  'postpone' option, you should run Receiver2Folder (short: r2f)
  first since else the later will not process any message (see
  above). ml2f has to check a lot more messages, so postpone is quite
  usefull there.
  To avoid ml2f has to process messages already sorted by r2f, just
  call r2f with the postpone option.


NOTE:  joining user accounts

  For the case you had differnet user account to avoid the mail-
  intermix, you can simply join the two accounts by copying the
  access-flags together. This has to be done form a SysOp account. I
  provide a small ARexx-Skript 'JoinUsers.rexx' in this archive which
  has done that job for me. But I take no warranty for it's
  correctness.
