Yeah, I really don't understand much of the code.
`nnimap-split-incoming-mail' runs before `nnimap-fetch-inbox', so that
might be the place which would need to be altered so that it first
fetches the new article's headers with a new function like
`nnimap-fetch-inbox' but which just ignores `nnimap-split-download-body'
and then split those, but then `nnmail-split-it' would need to somehow
know not to split messages which operate on the body.  So that seems

Maybe having the function given in the `(: function)' split do the work
of downloading the message would be easier.  I don't know if that's
possible, though.

Thanks for that.

Thanks for that as well.
