Without wanting to sound like a rabid Mac user, Claris Emailer 2.0v3 does 
all of that in a GUI. Too bad that Apple apparently killed 
Outlook Express is "default installed" (read: sell our souls to M$). 
Emailer does multiple sigs, random sigs, added headers, header sets, 
script-based filing and sorting, autorespond, added functions using 
AppleScript, etc. etc. etc., and multiple setting groups are easy to 
make. Might be a good model for Balsa to look at.

I'll drop back into lurk mode for now...
