Tried to... didn't get so far.  I need to learn how to put a hook in
place to select all new messages, delete them, then go back and find
the ones I want to keep and un-delete them.

Hmmm... this will complicate things.  Can I save Virtual Folder
definitions?  Can I edit them over time?  Can I change multiple
selections into one virtual folder?  

It may be that using procmail to filter for me would be easier,
again because my elisp skills are non-existant.  I know what I want, I
just can't begin to even think how to write it.
