Re: [Evolution] Using evolution with a lot of MBOX files/MH folders/maildir folders

Just an update on this problem.  If you use maildir to store the files,
you can now setup a maildir 'storage' from the mail configuration
dialogue, and it shoudl automatically scan all folders and use them and
have them show up.

Actually i'm fairly sure I didn't get the directory scanning correct,
but once I know what it should work like I guess it should start working

I've also added a 'spool' folder which is an mbox folder which is only
visited.  Only these don't show up so nicely in the gui, and you have to
configure each one individually, and are less efficient, etc etc, so you
probably dont want to use them in this case.

I just had a quick look at Evolution 0.10 and must say that I'm really
impressed.  I would really like to use it.

One thing annoys me though, is my current setup.  Currently, I've setup
quite a lot of procmail recipes (filters) for all the different mailing
lists that I'm subscribed to.  These recipes file the mails into different
MBOX files.  One per mailing list that I'm subscribed to.  Those MBOX files
are all in ~/Mail.

I do not want to change this, as I need to be able to read my mails even
with a textmode MUA, namely mutt.

So, is there a way that I can tell Evolution that it should use one
directory (~/Mail) and use all the files it sees there as mailspools? 
Personally, I don't care that much about Evolutions nice filtering
capabilities.  They are nice, but procmail clearly beats 'em.  Sure,
procmail isn't as easy to setup - but procmail is already setup very well,

Or is there another way that I could use both procmail and Evolution
together at the same time?  Like importing the procmail recipes into

If Evolution doesn't handle MBOX files that well, I could also easily switch
to MH folders or maildir folders, if that would help.

Thanks for your time and help,
