Sorting Mail

[ #15088 ]

A question was posed on grouping mail by date and sorting out to new mailboxes. This type of solution might be for a mailbox that has huge volume, hundreds of messages per day. This was the first solution I came up with before I was told the mail was on a remote IMAP server.

perl -MMail::Util=read_mbox -MMail::Audit -le'Mail::Audit->new(data=>$_)->accept("mail/%Y%m%d.mbox") foreach read_mbox shift' inbox.mbox

Then the mutt solution was provided by someone else. I'm always amazed at what mutt can do.
