As I noted before though most maIl clients seem to fall over once you get to 50+ rules or destination folders. I have no idea why: it's hardy going to be a computation and memory error. Outlook (not Outlook Express) is pretty good if you receive less than 1000 emails a week and have less than 50 folders. I gave up on Thunderbird cos it fell over so often. OE ditto - it's not built to handle it. I'm going to try Pegasus again.

Has the honourable (ha! Thunderbird insists I spelled this badly and one

of its suggestions was 'unburnable' - awesome! and apt.) gentleman

considered looking into automatically filtering his email? Good email

clients and even some email providers allow you to simply and quickly

create rules that can file/delete incoming mail and therefore save lots

of time.

Gmail does this eminently and there is always the "all mail" feature in

case something get mis-filed. I recently went through the process of

creating filters on my Virgin Media (blueyonder to the old hands)

account, which uses the gmail engine, and the result was nothing short

of miraculous. I used to struggle under the weight of emails, now I

hardly have to bother at all.
