The mutt mailread support the feature as built-in. But should be better
to use the popular "procmail": maybe, I will add fetchmail and procmail
in the next release: they are standard de-facto in the Linux community.
Procmail filter the incoming messages before to pass it to mail-reader
itself. It can span on more mailboxes, do autoreplies, discards, etc.

I think 15-20 emails of 3k is not a big problem for me: I have no
other traffic at all. Are you the my friends!
