Balsa is a GUI mail app with mail filter support(which any decent MUA
*must* have). If you just signed up for a new mailing list or
something, you want a quick, intuitive way to create a filter in 35

anyone that bringing up .procmailrc and writing the rule satisfies
these criteria. You can't spend 1 hour designing all the filters
you'll ever need up front because these needs change over time.. and
you can't expect the average gnome user to even think of battling with
the horrid syntax that is procmail.

The procmail / arbitrary mail filter program support in balsa is just
that - an extension to provide more functionality for power users.

Maybe it's a good idea to make a stopper or warning, when the number of
filters > 10?

Maybe it's good idea to have balsa Do The Right Thing And Not Corrupt
the Filters? Anything less is unacceptable. In fact, if balsa could
sanity-check and even recover from an invalid filter file, that'd be
