That's also an option right, labels are nice.
I think procmail is really powerful though, even if it can be trickier
to get it right.

Well but then you can only access to the mails with the clients that can
manipulate directly with Maildir format, and by the way during the time
you're not syncing you don't see the new emails right?

Is it gnus stable and fast on working on it?
I trust more servers somehow...

Is it offlineimap much slower than fetchmail that we have to run it much
less often?
