I'm interested in doing client-side filtering.  There are lots of things I
do in Outlook at work that I find useful in terms of filtering.  One thing
it doesn't do, however, is give the ability to filter mail AFTER it has
arrived.  For instance I want messages in a certain folder to be moved to
another folder after I reply to them.

any thoughts on integrating perl/python to let people write their own
plugins and to make the filtering more flexible?
