for many, many years, I was running POP3, even though I have my own
server where mail gets collected (sent to). It concerned me that once I
retrieved the mail with one of my client machines, it could no longer
viewed by any of the other machines. Eventually, a friend of mine
persuaded me to use IMAP but then, everything was stored in the INBOX
and I still was using one of the clients to filter the mail.
This is not really an acceptable solution - specially since the M$
Exchange server does it (mostly) right - except when you have too many
rules (> 32 KB, about 50 or so rules).
Then I stumbled over procmail and email life was great.
Now, I still need to figure out, how to set up LDAP and get my address
book imported so that I can use it with Thunderbird (no vCard import
there).

Best regards,
Chris
