This post is slighly off-topic, as it is not directly about org-mode.

As many of you on the list will know, I'm a big fan of David Allen's GTD
system, and over the years I have tweaked my use of MH and MH-E to help
support this use.

One thing I have done is design a method so that I can easily put emails
into a set of 'pending' mail folders, and then get cron to process these
and dump the emails back into my +inbox at appropriate dates.

Having mentioned this on the MH-E list recently, someone asked if I
could share the scripts with them, so I have written this up here:


I suspect you could extend this to any email system where you have
command line access to your email system. 

Hope you find this useful.
