This is 2010, and folders have been consigned to a dim, dusty, and hierarchical past; now we do everything with tags.
Unless tags can be added by procmail, or by implication ('directory' tags corresponding to the mail's storage location, for example) it seems to me that this makes the whole thing nearly useless: how do you keep distinct mailing lists separate, for instance?
I still haven't found anything to compare to Gnus's 'everything looks like Usenet' approach. Gnus with a xapian searching backend would be amazing. ... and now I look for it I see that there is an nnmairix backend, which all the cool people probably knew about years ago. I think I'll be trying that...
