There's actually a brief discussion of this in the archives.  If you
are using a Unix-based mailer like elm, there is a "filter" command
available that pre-sorts your mail.  Look for the subject line
"filtering Team Ada input" in the archives.

I don't know about PC-based mail programs, but any one that's worth a
salt should have this kind of feature.
