I'm like you. I don't have a lot of time right now, but I'll just add to
this discussion that fetchmail in combination with procmail has been
working beautifully for me for the past couple of years. fetchmail sends
incoming messages to procmail which filters them into a variety of inboxes
based on whatever criteria I specify. Every list has its own inbox.
You have to learn to write procmail recipies to do this. It isn't hard
and I think it is well worth learning. I think this is a good place to
learn about procmail:
Now that I look at it again, it seems exceedingly long, but it must be
possible to skim through it to get to the good parts because I know that I
made it work without reading all of that.
