Hmm...thx, but I think I don't like that. Mutt seems to have excelent filtering functionality, problem is that for me it works for outgoing mail only, but should - as mentioned in the docs for ingoing, too.

(Your solution means having another system-maildir AND another mutt-maildir.)

What's the benefit of maildir? when using mbox I have one file, when using maildir, a have a dir cluttered with files. For large amounts of mail I can't imagine that having a dir full of files is much faster than having one file full of mails. Or is it? Or are there any other advantages?
